you also email your partner.

know as soon as possible. Also, do inform the management team
asap. Arrangements can be made to accomodate everyone.

Q: Am I automatically included in the exchange once I've signed

A: NO. You'll need to sign up each and every month that you
wish to be included. (this way, one can 'drop-out' when
necessary, and re-join when you are ready.)

Any other questions can be directed to the newsgroup rcty, under
the subject 6 x 6 questions.
