      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. Artemis?

    not according to "back to the future"... part III specifically. maybe they moved from Hill Valley to SF? Now the actual story... http://brandlaw.org/2010/03/in-memoriam-frisbee-inventor-fred-morrison/
  2. Artemis?

    Playing frisbee myself it is clearly the game to play in San Francisco where the game is believed to come from. For lack of teams over here I prefer to play free style at escarpments at sea shores on days with sea breeze or just on sunny and hot days. Ultimate is kind of like American Football and produces bruises in places you might not expect. You might get in trouble with your girl when she found them on you. The bruises may look like scratches made by a woman and so you better play it full on to acquire bumps that are obvious ;)/>
  3. Artemis?

    Kevin Hall graduated with degrees in French literature and math, right? So he can solve complex equations with a surly manner? :P/> Nope. He can possibly solve complex boat, people and priorities equasions in a surly manner.

    Artemis' main design team was previously busy in the VOR and AC monohalls. Now they are readjusting to a new world - new platform, new rig system, new electronics and that adds up to a new environment on the whole and doing so they are pretty much doing it their own way... Like some famous designer said - a design's working hours are spent mostly in routine considerations and calculations... But the Dogzillinas wouldn't have had a wing without a pressure from the outside the camps for the ultimate effort either. And huh, were they being nervous that famous autumn! Suddenly it was some unidentified force, supposedly a lower life, that was pushing them farther towards that insight in a more determined way they thouhgt was necessary themselves. It is funny you are discussing which pole is attached to which beam at this stage of efforts (O.K. it is a game of give and take). On the other hand the foiling solutions are showing how new this is, how tricky and playfull and how astonishingly simple, well, geometrically so at least. Isn't it? I can remember some futuristic pictures in the eighties that showed huge foiling machines with long-long counter-balancing outside beams! How obsolete and elitic they would look now! Amazing how democratic and mind-straightening the actual development has been (e.g. the Moth). Actually I started off to make a different point but eventually it turned out to be about how democratic and consequently patent free it has become or has always been!!! Mind I am writing on a smart phone But back to Artemis. It is exciting to have that third team to keep our eyes in motion like watching two tennis games at the same time! Isn't it?
