      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. 2018 Texas Centerboard Circuit

    The Spring Fling will host a Friday night party and supply a keg of Shiner. We will again have a keg for Saturday night after dinner and MUSIC under the hard roof. It's only a good stereo, but it'll make you want to move your stuff. If it's a party y'all want, it's a party y'all shall get. With the notorious Laser bunch coming, it should be interesting...

    I've never been either. I'm game though.

    The RS Aero charter trailer will be at this event with 10 boats available. FYI

    Okay, It's official: Lasers are in for Spring Fling. We have decided to throw a party Friday night for any of you who want to act like your 19 again. Keg provided and we'll have a grill fired up for those who want to bring something to burn. This is shaping up to be the best Spring Fling yet. TCC Lasers RS Aeros Sunfish Who will bring the most boats?

    Looks like Dist 15 Lasers want in on the fun. We're shooting for 50+ boats. Looking like 2 Shiner kegs might not be enough. Small boat event of the year?

    We can fleet out those who want to, but I like the idea of "run what ya brung" too. The Aeros will obviously want to stay together as this is a pretty big regatta for them, Sunfish too. But I think the TCC fleet could outnumber all others by a bunch. But we need to get the word out. This year is going to be a major party. Plan on that!

    Let's move this conversation to the new 2018 TCC page.

    The 2018 Spring Fling Regatta at Conroe Yacht Club is scheduled for April 28th & 29th. If you haven't been to this regatta you're missing a good one. TCC, Sunfish and RS Aero Texas State Championships. Great food, lots of Shiner and great folks. See you there.

    Spring Fling at Conroe Yacht Club will be April 28th & 29th. We'll have TCC, Texas State Championships for RS Aero and the Texas Sunfish qualifier. Make your plans early. Plenty of free camping, dinner and keg Saturday evening, breakfast Sunday morning and a ton more. This years trophies are awesome. See you all there.

    So I guess paying the web hosting for the TCC website of roughly ten times the annual dues, doesn't qualify me to be counted. Thanks!

    I personally don't have an issue with the Aero fleet sailing with the DPN group. Not sure if we'll fleet out or not. And again, personally, I'd like to see triangles. No WL courses. Boring.

    Conroe Yacht Club has it's fall big regatta, The John Hallett Memorial Regatta, this coming weekend and as race commodore I need to be there. I get to spend the weekend driving a Catalina 22. Joy of joys. Wish I could be at Rush Creek sailing with you all. Have fun and try to not run anybody over.

    I looked up the Capri 16.5 and found 96.3 with no spinnaker. The AYC results are showing 97. Are you saying that it should be 98.3? Not sure I understand.

    Vic Manning stayed late Saturday night so we could watch the UT / USC game. Made us all popcorn and we got to sit in the A/C which was a nice change from what was on the other side of the door. My new friends made me a rum and ginger beer that was exceptional. Claire, sorry that you got sick, missed seeing you all Sunday. I was fine so whatever it was you got, luckily I didn't. The regatta was one of the best run at AYC since I've been going there. Portsmouth numbers were not right at first but they corrected them right away with no BS. Very well run starts and I really like the horn system on the RC boat. I started out slow but by the end of the first day was right on the heels of the leaders and was doing much better than the 6th place OA finish might indicate. A couple of lucky breaks and I would have been in the plastic. HOOD at HYC this weekend then on to Rush Creek. Couple of Capri 22 races thrown in plus our fall John Hallett Memorial Regatta in October makes this time of year hard to find time to mow the grass. Can't wait to see you guys again! Hike and ease. Hike and ease.
