      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. I really miss walking up to the club and seeing Jeff and crew sitting at one of the tables at Manhasset Fall Series. I hope Dreadlocks finds a good home and shows up on the race course again.
  2. Tires: Instead of "soft, super soft, and ultra soft"... how about "hard, medium and soft"?
  3. Race starts tomorrow
  4. I was just about to mention Bruce & Nicole. They use the primaries and cross-sheet. The second place boat uses the cabin-tops through the turning blocks and does not cross-sheet. I'm pretty sure the second place boat was faster upwind, but got second because B&N just out-sailed them.
  5. That show brought a lot of joy
  6. Looks like it would become 2 planes after the first bump.
  7. No more smoking in the bar, sorry.
  8. Valencia is in as usual
  9. We're having to down-scale the FPC this year. Cutting out a few of the stops.
  10. May 20-21
  11. The one thing they could have done better is communication. We couldn't hear their horns, so a count-down on the VHF would have been very helpful.
  12. Thank you AYC. Great RC work on the East Circle.
  13. Since you love MacGregors I also assume there's something wrong with you. But if you pull up the appropriate information available the website, you will notice racing starts today. Thanks, I did not explore any further, just sitting in my office and checked and thought it started yesterday. Why would you not love MacGregors? Super awesome sailing boat , when no wind just fire up the 90 HP and cruise. Best of both worlds. Cherry on top they are super good looking Cheers X 1000
  14. Some do...... That's a capable vehicle for sure...but a stock Subaru Outback will get the job done
