      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. Yup. My wife and I were living in Brooklyn when the movie came out. Put on our Topsiders and joined two other couples in an otherwise empty theater to watch.
  2. This year is the 25th anniversary of the movie Wind. Thinking of doing something to celebrate this classic. Anyone who was part of making the film interested in joining in? Maybe a showing and "panel" discussion. Nothing serious. All in fun. Perhaps tie in a fundraiser for the kids. Open to ideas but interested in making something happen. Connecticut location. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BywNIZm6GeA
  3. Anyone have a good source for custom bow stickers? Looking for something for an upcoming event that's relatively easy to remove yet stays in place. Thanks.
  4. Some nice pics from the New England Championship here: www.maryalicefisher.com/clientele/sailing/J88-Championship-Indian-Harbor/ Jonathan
  5. NOR attached. J88 NOR.pdf
  6. Thanks for posting the YS link. We're doing what we can to make this as welcoming and as well-attended an event as we can. Among the highlights: 2 days of dedicated class racing Modest event costs ($200 entry fee, no hoist/dockage/mooring fees) Saturday dinner 4 Ton hoist onsite Early arrival/late departure options Fall sailing on LIS! Feel free to contact me or our Waterfront Director with any questions. Details in the NOR (can't seem to create the link here but it's in post 1742). Jonathan
  7. Kind of fond of Attractive Nuisance.
  8. Congrats on the new acquisition - they're great boats. Since the NAs seem to be locked in around LO or nearby, hopefully we'll see you where ever they are in '15. Jonathan
