      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.

    You’re welcome. My pleasure. See you tomorrow.

    Bump. I didn’t mention it in my post above, but this event is open to the public.
  3. West Michigan Thread

    I’ll see what I can do. But you can only watch it when you come up to visit mongo and we’ll drink Yooper beer.

    Good to hear that you’re back on the ice. I still have to take that big step.

    Join us next Thursday (April 12) at MBYC for the Leukemia Cup kickoff party. Graham Garrenton from Meridian X will be in town to share their MOB experience in the 2017 ChiMac race. This should be a very informative presentation/discussion as Graham will be sharing lessons learned from their harrowing experience. The event begins at 5:00 pm. Hope to see you there.

    The pukster has finished.

    I still have to get Puckhead to the finish. Forgot about that entry.

    Thanks. TR is carrying the workload right now. My finish turned out to be not so good. The flyer looked horrible, then good, but I knew I was too far west and that land was going to be an issue. I could have saved a little face and tucked in behind our lead group, but I held out for that miracle. Maybe next time. So here are the numbers: 3156 place 7211.2 NM 16d 4h 24m 02s

    I probably won’t be able to get to updating tonight. Stuck at work again and I’ll hopefully have tomorrow evening to kick back and do something fun...like update standings. Beer will be involved.

    I had that problem last night. Can’t remember if a refresh or closing and reopening the app fixed it.
  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Y’all are crushing me. See you at the bar. Save me a seat.
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Yes, right when I’m doing to breakout room thing with my nephews. Go the way points!
  13. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Me. Too far west. Had to take a hitch out once and another one coming.
