Weather Alert Emails!!!

Hey Folks!

So I've decided to start a weather alert email list! The idea is to shoot out a warning note whenever it looks like its gonna get good here on Hatteras Island! I'll limit the mailings to announcements of a forecast containing two or more days in a row of 20 knot or higher winds, based mostly on the iWindsurf and Windguru forecast charts... and maybe a little intuition...

Hopefully, all you road warriors out there will be able to benefit from these emails and score a few epic days of Hatteras wind and waves that you may have otherwise missed!!

Here's how you sign up:

Simply send a note to lostinhatteras at gmail dot com with the subject "Hatteras Weather Alerts." In the body of the message, let me know what email address(es) you would like to receive the alerts at. Don't forget to mark my address as "safe" so that the alerts stay out of your junk folder!

If you ever want to be removed from the list (knowing how often it goes off here may end up being pure torture for some of you), simply send a note to the same address with the subject "unsubscribe" and your address in the body of the note.

Please feel free to let me know if you're interested in hearing about occasional specials, sales and general goings on at Sailworld Hatteras, as well!

Please note:

By signing up, you agree to release me from any liability due to false alerts and missed work days if the weather doesn't hold... etc etc etc... AKA: Don't get mad at me if the forecast doesn't come true!!

I hope to hear from (and see) y'all soon!!!

Great offer Andy. However, living 380 miles from Avon, your service might be more like torture for me. In my "senior" years as a windsurfer I've learned to stick my head in the sand and not look at the weather when family and work preclude sailing. But, your 2-day blow criteria means you'll only be announcing forecasts that should yield a good return on investment. I'll give it a try!

Great idea Andy! Let me know if you want to create a cool HTML email template and I'll be happy to help you if you need it.
