      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. ZIP is in for the OLD. Just need to send in the cat 7 cert ( got it renewed today) and a copy of the insurance. details details details.
  2. OK, have you asked the Lake Macquarie council to be the patron ? Its a charitable organisation, that potentially brings a huge part of the local community together, it brilliantly showcases the area, while bringing in sporting/tourist dollars AND (heres the clincher bb) Hawko can run a Getaway spot tying it all together. I am sure ASBA will nominate at least the OLD to its ISBA international circuit. Visit your local counciller mate, and blackmail the bastard into supporting what could build into a huge Lake event.
  3. Yes, hopefully we'll see more involvement by the Lakes Clubs this year, as the HCW isn't a one hit wonder any more. without knowing how you are set up, how would a high profile local patron go with shaming the Newcastle/Lake clubs into participating ? My suggestion is Jennifer Hawkins. Make them look positively anti novocastrian if they don't register their full blooded support. I was lurking around the Lake when HCW was on last year, my read from the actual sailors is that they would compete if it was a part of or not clashing with their pointscores.
  4. I spent the weekend at the LMYC with the etchells and also catching up with a bunch of the people that race the saturday from the club. Many of these sailors were interested in the race, but the caveat seemed to be that it was not a LMYC pointscore race, or a pointscore race clashed with it. I am sure that there would be great support from the LMYC under the right circumstances. Maybe the OLD would be the right entry point to entice the clubs support. There is plenty of interest. And well done to all involved in the race
  5. Thats a lot of beer at the exchange rate !
