A Google groups list would seemingly solve all the issues. I
administer one for our riding club.
Members could receive individual e-mails, digest e-mails or no e-mails
and read the posts via the web
can be public or private with open membership or must be invited or
submit requests to join
posts can be moderated or not
members can create profiles
files can be uploaded
(simple) pages can be created
messages are archived
