Yeah, Coaches can log on and email teams, subsets of teams or multiple teams
as well as general supporters lists and there are 3 or 4 texts per group per
week.. It is very convenient to be able to cancel 300 kids from age 6 - 12
at 8:30 on a Sunday morning all in one go.. And given that a letter to
members works out at approx e1 - stamp, envelope, paper, toner, time - txting
is much cheaper / more convenient.
