Cool idea, Chris.  I'm signed up.  Assuming this is a one-way deal and even though it appears to be an option, you don't really want people replying to those announcement texts?

So it actually has the ability to receive responses, and we can then respond again.

in full transparency I'm not sure that we will be able to respond to messages sent.   Hopefully we can, but I just can't make any promises :)

If you opt in for text messages and then decide it's too much or not for you or whatever, will there be an opt out? Or once you're in, you're in?

Hi, Kelly!!!!  I got an email announcement that tells how to enroll and how to cancel.  If you didn't get it yet, you should.

Thanks Richard! I saw the details about how to enroll - but nothing about how to cancel out - I'll re-read!

It is common practice that most of these text message systems will STOP if you reply stop to a received text message.

The email does not say this but the alternate web page, which you can sign up at, does say that if you reply "stop' the text messages will stop.
