If you are going to do an email again,
Pump up the Relay! There are lots of new people that have joined after the Relay heyday last winter. At this point, I can imagine it is quite imposing for a noob to understand what is going on with the relays and may be intimidated to get involved.
If you would like, I can start a "noob" LPS relay for all people with less than 5 GCGC relay finds. Just send me a PM and I'll drop off a new film container under a skirt somewhere.
If you write about the relays, be sure to email out the latest coordinates of the active relay(s).
