      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 was light air on Monday around 0930, Alice said as much as she could, I said the rest. I spread his ashes over the water about 60/70' away from the can and tossed the bottle at the can. When we edit the video, I'll post it for you. (Getting ready to leave for Port Huron for the other Mac.) It was nice and calm. Too calm, but it was nice for the ash spreading instead of "Drop him, we have to gybe/tack NOW!" I'll miss Wally for a long time. T

    For those that knew him, The Wallenator is sailing his last Mac on Saturday on PK4. Give him a wave as we pass each other. He won't finish the race. We're dropping him off with some his friends at Can 3. At least then he can have a beer with Tom and the rest of the guys and watch us go by every year. From PK4- Sail fast and safe. See all y'all at the Island.

    He was Irish driver. No beer for Wally, though. He had an interesting history. You would have enjoyed the conversation. I always did.

    Hoghead McDunna's has a back room. Not huge. And they have been a supporter of sailing. What's wrong with Weather Mark? T

    Ok, now for something more fun. Beach volleyball! There is a prettier version of this that I attached to an email that I sent thru the LMSRF list. Paula Bersie is running the games now. Alice and I are taking a rest from producing the volleyball games on the beach this year. We may sit by the pool and drink. Or, go swimming. Alice has been doing the volleyball games since before I met her 17 years ago. (We just had our 11th wedding anniversary on Sunday. Some of you were there. Robin, I still remember your words that day. Thank you.) The Columbia Yacht Club Sail Fleet presents the annual Tri-state Challenge Join the fun…Play for rum on the beach at St.Joe… (just west of where the old club was) Grab the crew or form your own team Boat vs. boat with Mt. Gay to the winners Saturday 2-5 (MICHIGAN TIME) See y'all over there. T
