Some people I frequently email received the MC boat newsletter recently. Neither are associated with MC and I didn't enter their names into anything. Anyone else having this issue? I wonder if MC is using a 3rd party to collect information for advertising purposes...thoughts?

Do they subscribe to Waterski Mag? I assumed that was the source.

I know my dealer just asked for my e-mail address. Maybe coming from dealers?

I got it too, a couple of days ago. Most like the dealer in my case; since I bought the boat, I've moved and the only MC-related office that knows my new e-mail address is my old dealer, whom I stay in touch with.

Hmmm....good point. I think I may have ID'd the culprit.

Thx.
