I'll just contact everyone.  It's not a problem.  So far I've
contacted everyone with more than 10 lines except for the two people
I mentioned.  Everyone is Ok with the change except for one person
who hasn't responded yet.

There are about 30 people left to contact now that we're going to
contact everyone.

I'll send you what I have so far privately in a separate email.
