      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.

    New vid for the Chicago based US One sailing team: They just arrived in Malaysia and are competing in the WMRT finale starting December 3rd. They're #1 ranked match race team in U.S. You guys gots to come check out some of the stuff going on up at CMRC this summer...how comes I only see blubbs and 12345 when I'm there? They're not so great to look at after awhile and could use some fresh faces.

    Sorry SOS , brendan is the moderator & he won't let me become one. You are on the list, should he ever decide to approve you as a Circus member. I hear getting accepted into the Circus Facebook group is harder than entering a J/30 in the Mac this year...

    Chicago locks will now be closed the entire month of April thru the 30th. Working on the bearings or something. The only time they'll be open is April 7th from noon-4. http://chicagoharbors.info/notices.php Who want's to sit along the locks on the 7th and watch the traffic jam?

    Great production/direction thanks for the props fellas. the engineering going into that breakwater is crazy...as crazy as the neon vests we had to wear.

    Still no Burnham changes even though G8 is no go. Probably has to do with NATO happening right after. Wow, Harbors have a specific email dedicated to the harbor closure now! "As has been reported in the news, the G8 Summit has been moved to Camp David in Maryland. However, the NATO Summit is still scheduled to be held in Chicago. As of now we have not been notified of any change in the security restrictions for the NATO summit meeting and the order from the United States Coast Guard for Burnham Harbor is still in effect. As soon as we receive any information regarding any potential changes, we will post it on this site. In the meantime, you may still address any questions to the existing email address, G8Summit@westrecchicago.com, or call the Chicago Harbors office at (312) 742-8520."

    I think the plan is to provide the available slips in 31st Street to the Burnham boaters for that weekend. Harbor depth is 17-18 feet.
