    A: As infrequent as possible, because we cannot rely on mass emails to keep participants informed. SPAM filters may swallow important news that is sent to too many recipients at once, or because of the seedy reputation of a neighbour that shares our web hosting company.

In return, we may contact you individually if we have questions for you.
