    Default "USEA Online Omnibus Notification System" ???

    I have received TWO emails from the USEA with this title ("USEA Online Omnibus Notification System") but there is NOTHING THERE. There are two attachments, but they are just the logo. The masseage itself is completely blank (though it takes up some space).

    If I click on "view source" I can see some text amungst the html. But in normal mode there is NOTHING there.

    Is it just my browser (IE 6.0), or are other people having the same problem?

    (I get other emails from USEA and they work fine.)

    I got the e-mail perfectly fine...

    Here's a cut and paste of the text:

    I got a message, that said my name, Area 1 and a little message with a link to the notification system. I'll post mine here for you.

    That (or the Area II version) is what I get if I select "view source". But if I don't act geeky by looking at the source code, there is NOTHING.

    For the people who do get the text, what browser, and/or what email system are you using?

    That's smart thinking, to be sending out email reminders to people about opening dates for events in their Area.

    I think this is pretty darn neat!!! Here is what mine said, but I wonder if you can get the notifications for different areas (say Area III, if you plan on going for winter)??:

    They made some modifications and sent it to me again, and now it seems to work.

    I have received no such notification. Maybe they are going alphabetically and mine will be later

    I don't know because my last name starts with R and I have now gotten 2 emails. The second one added a show to the list that wasn't on the first one.

    I really like the "Notification System"

    I would suggest emailing josh@useventing.com to find out why you are not getting it.

    I received mine too and really like this idea!

    With all of the negative discussions about discontinuing the printed Omnibus, I think this is absolutely great. I too liked receiving the printed Omnibus (although readily admit to not opening it -- it mainly sat on my desk at home), but am one who completely understood and supported eliminating it.

    This system will hopefully eliminate what otherwise was a foregone conclusion with no printed omnibus...I would toddle off the barn, and have someone say "so, did you enter XXX HT? It opened last week."
    And be gobsmacked and rush home to do it too late to get in.
    SO I like it!
