      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.

    It's OK as long as we only use green balloons...

    Outstanding day, and better wind than we were expecting. I've got an e-mail out seeking results. Hopefully they'll get posted on www.msmaine.org before too long. Navy Jr. is trying to resolve one scoring issue before posting final results... RC may have made one mistake while being distracted by a drunken, lovesick swimmer with a suicide wish... and no, I don't have pictures.

    Sincere condolences to crew, family, and friends of Beagle. I also think Jen handled the award ceremony very well. Based on feedback so far, I wouldn't count on the new format going away any time soon. The Sunday morning breakfast and award ceremony at PYC was glorious. Hats off to Jen, Mark, Molly, Carter...et al. for putting on a fantastic event.

    First gun is 1200 on Friday.

    Also tie breaker in Class "A". 5, 2 beats a 2, 5 unless there were some other formula specified in the sailing instructions. Hate to say this, but these might be a bit flawed? I could be wrong, but... Note that the corrected times for the B and D fleets the same as elapsed; it looks like maybe the handicaps were not applied? I see no course length in all the numbers there. Deja vu - same thing happened at Centerboard with the Cruising Class. The issue was rectified at the end of the party, after everyone had a good dose of beer and lasagna.

    I'd say someone had been out in the shed sorting through old aluminum sticks....

    This got us in the last race...

    Hmmm... good, but not quite as good as last year's deal where we got handles for something like $12 apiece! Stick bought a case that time. That supply is depleted now -- drank most ourselves and shared one with others at one of G's cookouts. Mom lives about 15 minutes from the circle, so perhaps we should go visit?! I was on my way to a regatta in CT during that sale and my host asked me to bring him a couple of cases... I had to decline. I'm not sure there, but there's GOT to be some law about transporting untaxed, below wholesale liquor over state lines. G Not illegal for "personal" consumption as long as you pay your Maine Use Tax (ie Pay Cash). Remember, rum running has been a tradition amongst N.E. sailors since days of old. Guy at the 95 North store told me (during our $12 rum run last year) that Maine had stopped posting unmarked state police in the parking lot after NH started arresting them for unlawful surveillance. Live Free or Die!!!

    It appears that the VOR racers may get to experience the 'horrors' of part of the last leg of the Monhegan Island Race... (This may not be a good way to promote Gulf of Maine Sailing.) Northern tip of the exclusion zone looks like it is almost due east (true) of Cape Elizabeth (43 Deg 30 Min N , 69 Deg 30 Min W) right on the lower left corner of chart 13288. Does anyone have the actual coordinates?

  11. Pit Bull ban in your community

    Because it's my personal fucking choice. Talk about arrogant... I think the comment speaks for itself. Thank you for proving my point. What, that you're an arrogant moron? I already knew that, glad you know now too. Wow, the best you can do is a juvenile "I know you are but what am I". What a lightweight. If you are going to fight I would appreciate a little effort. Come on....

    Because it's my personal fucking choice. Talk about arrogant... If pit bulls only killed or injured their owners, then I would be all for no restrictions on them. But since they are known to attack and kill neighbors and others (whose personal fucking choice was not to be attacked), then it is no longer a matter of the owners personal choice. BTW, there was another pit bull attack today - "DISTRICT HEIGHTS, Md. - A Prince George's County fire official says a 4-year-old boy was critically injured when he was attacked by his family's pit bull." So by your logic, we should restrict all dogs that attack. Why not all guns? Knives? Baseball bats? Alcohol (drunk drivers kill too)? I'll keep my dog, thank you. BTW, he did not attack anyone again today... Wow, what a friggin' moron... When your gun gets up off the table and shoots me all by itself I will concede that I was wrong.

    Unless you are a friggin' drug dealer, why do you need a pit bull anyway??? Maybe I'll just get a bengal tiger. Not all of them kill children, right? I bet I can even find statistics showing poodles kill more children in the U.S. than bengal tigers. What a bunch of arrogant, naval gazing, B.S.!!!

    Should come in around 87 are you going to race it???? WTF, whaddaya think he'd do with it, haul lobster traps! Hey, take it easy on Kitty. Remember, he is in management now. Stupid questions, like buzz words, are just part of the job.
