      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. Rainbow spirit, just thinking outside the square here, have you thought about buying an MG 14, instead of creating one. spin chute, pole etc already in place, your NS 14 will probably pay for one. minor fitting adjustments may be required for single handing.
  2. sounds like a scaled up optimist.
  3. I'm not going to make it, I have family health issues, cant get away unfortunately.
  4. Anyone got any footage of the Pulse Fleet at the recent kings Cup in Phuket, im told they had their own division. Can anyone confirm what I have heard third hand,that the Thai boats have a modification, a post under the mast step to support the ring frame,? Whats going on there?
  5. sounds like you have to many holidays, time to get serious!! LOL
  6. I posted the below comment on the 2018 thread,i think it fits here too, It happened a few years ago too. The time and $ commitment to attend both is under consideration by the minister for war and finance here at the moment,apparently I'm not allowed to have too much fun each year. From my place its about the same distance to each, so I cant use that to split the decision. Its clear the YA are going to continue to push for a Nationals(and a National governing body) vs. our casual arrangement through our non association, which although it has worked for years, gives us no national profile for the YA to address this issue with. I think we are victims of our own apathy.

  12. some pics or video would be good too, when you take it out.
  13. I came on here knowing one of you would have been already. Obviously the game wasn't important,they played it at the end of the world! We played badly, cant defend that. Back to thread topic.
  14. Should be no problem finding your way home, wait till Wednesday night, listen for the sound of queenslanders crying!!, GO THE BLUES!!!!
