      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.

    I've got a nice Canon 720p camcorder I'd send him but it uses micro tapes and unfortunately, takes forever to upload video (as in real time to upload). Anyone have a spare camcorder with nice zoom that uses SD cards that they'd like to donate to Jason? Can we fund something like this when back in stock? https://shop.usa.canon.com/shop/en/catalog/vixia-hf-g30-refurbished
  3. I think this is what you really wrote. Pictures are from Facebook this am. Well done team Artemis

    Thank you very much Weta27 for following through and contacting Jack Griffin regarding donations to Jason Smith. You gotta figure that someone who spends the equivalent time taking videos as a full time job might need some cash. He sure is a humble person and is much appreciated. I hope we don't take him for granted.

    Did someone post that he was employed by OR awhile ago? Did someone post that he was being employed by OR awhile ago?Lol, you have to be dreaming. Post#? He seems to just enjoy doing what he does, it way predates the AC in Bermuda. I do know that the Royal Gazette guy Talbott Wilson has in the past worked for ETNZ but it was a while back. There was a comment here by someone making a negative comment and "somehow" linking him to OR and I hope like hell that he never sees it. I have not seen that he asks for anything, but I have filmed fellow kiters and have some idea the amount of time that he is spending making videos for us. I've never put a fund together for someone, but I feel he deserves something as he is the only one putting together racing and practice videos for the community. Anyone know how to setup a fund for him?

    MIHBDA is a hero to a lot of us and I see that he has a new 1080p video camera. We should really set up a PayPal fund to thank him. Anyone else want to throw him $5-$10 for all of his work? Cj
  7. ACWS Chicago - June 2016

    Petty sure that you could get 100,000 tourist in the Navy Pier area (lake front) on a hot summer Saturday just sightseeing. Also, general admission tickets (and VP) were for the tip of Navy Pier.

    Christ, can't you see that we are not expecting them to win, we are thrilled for the human spirit on that team? Guys that could not hardly have been more low having lost their mate on top of all the other team setbacks are now acting like 10-year olds with excitement. What they are doing may be bigger "wins" with regard to emotions and pride than winning the AC will be for OR or ETNZ. Totally agree Goucho, and couldn't have said it better myself. From the video, it's intesting to see AR flybe at 32.6 knots, then see the knot meter display digitally disappear. Sure hope the first race is a close one.

    ripped foil condom!? ("safety first") ….or, someone forgot to remove the shrink wrap from the foil;

    =============== I see something-I'm not sure they're fences-its hard to tell. Now that, I'm looking at the rudders weren't the rudder hydrofoils about where the lines/fences are? Doug, The rudder hydrofoils are located further down the rudders;

    Don't tell Doug as she just might fly ; > )
