      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.

  8. Good to see many of you racers Wed night. Huge thanks to Terry and Richard for the work on Shirts, Awards, Trophies and to Leo for hosting and to all the volunteers who make the DHF happen! Great response to the new format by those familiar with DHF. https://www.jibeset.net/BAMA000.php?RG=T008102230 To encourage OD entries and entries in the 3 new races DHBL "Race to the Sea", DHG7 "Race to the Bar", DHWB " Race to the Weather Buoy / LaneSplitter Race". We are extending early fee of $60 to Friday 2/17 and adding an introductory fee $65 to Sat. 2/25. The 3 new races have reduced eligibility and equipment requirements appropriate for these shorter races lowering the barrier for those wanting to explore DH ocean races. Updated "Overview" of courses, equipment, education (No SAS), eligibility at https://www.jibeset.net/show.php?RR=BAMA_T008102230&DOC=X2&TYP=pdf Also the "Pre-Skippers meeting" had very good attendance. If you have an event at your club where a 5-10 min overview (more or less) would be of interest, let me know! Richmond? Tiburon? Santa Cruz? SF? Alameda?

  14. oops..the 8th is also the Awards for 3BF. Considering several ways to make this work, it seems the best alternative would be to move it back a week to Wed Feb 15th -everything else the same. We will also use this as a pre-skippers meeting for the 38th DHF (and DHWB, DHG7, DHBL) race(s) on March 18th 2017. See Story http://www.latitude38.com/lectronic/lectronicday.lasso?date=2017-02-03#Story4 Any conflicts with the Wed Feb 15th date? Also curious if everyone who raced received the original announcement email from jibeset Here's the SA forum on 38th DHF March 18th, 2017 http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/index.php?showtopic=180039#entry5611328 Thanks!
