      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.

    Mine arrived yesterday. Nicely done. April is the best, GTC! Very glad to hear there needs to be a second run, and the high % to the cause.
  2. "Heaven Can Wait" 24 hour Yacht Race

    THAT I could do. One is more of a shoulder biter though, will be 12 y.o. this time next year. MSG and I are going!

    I got a great visual of you wandering around with a walker, in jammies and slippers, bald from chemo, muttering "anarchy" to yourself, scaring small children..."Watch out! It's the crazy bald sailing lady!" LOL
  4. "Heaven Can Wait" 24 hour Yacht Race

    Got it, thanks! Probably not bringing the kids, quick look shows $2000 USD per seat for airfare. Yikes.
  5. "Heaven Can Wait" 24 hour Yacht Race

    Dan, the dates for the 2012 HCW are pretty safe for you to have a crack at the race for yourself. We have a Public Holiday Weekend here over which the HCW is run to give competitors the Monday to recover and/or get home. The Weekend following the Long Weekend is always petrolhead heaven and "Bathurst" watching the V8's take on the "Mountain" again around Australia's most famous / infamous race track. It would be sensational to have you and the "Pebble" down under to take on the HCW. The HCW is perfectly suited to Sportsboats being held on enclosed waters with some opportunities for some sensational runs and big speeds as the boys on "Stealthy", "Team GUE" and "Vivace" will attest, not too mention the 18's, Moths and Racing Cats. A couple of cool facts about the HCW : The HCW 24hour is Australia's Longest Inshore Yacht Race, The HCW 24hour is the "Worlds" only 25 hour 24 hour Yacht Race (Daylight Savings begins during the Race). Where else can you Race for hundreds of Nautical Miles and actually go nowhere? A 25 hour 24 hour hundreds of mile race to nowhere? That's truly fantastic, perfect for me! Shame on me, selfishly never even thought of bringing the Pebble. But if he comes, his big sister the Rockette will have to come along too. I think their mother will approve of a week off from school for a cultural experience like this. But what to do with a 6 & 12 y.o. who I can't even get to go along on a local Wed night beercan race on a Beneslug 44.7, while Dad goes off racing some badass sportie for 25 hours? I suppose there's a bit of time to figure that out... And save for 3 airfares. Forgive my seppo ignorance of Aussie geography, but where the hell would we be flying into exactly?? MSG- you, The Advocate and I and your bag racing together next year -wadda ya say? Justin and I have promised to get each other drunk for putting up with/getting over with medal winning disabled women. Maybe I can ship in a Viper for us to sail! LOL (hmmm.... actually, maybe I'll be able to expense my airfare, if a certain new job prospect works out).
  6. "Heaven Can Wait" 24 hour Yacht Race

    Damnit. I just watched the video. Yes DCMJ, I'm jealous that you've gone 6 years, and you're right... I just have to make it happen. Shaun & Blake, find me a ride on something fast and sporty for 2012, I've got to do this. I'll have more freedom to get away next year. Maybe we drag MSG along too, she says she wants to go to OZ. Just don't schedule 2012 for the weekend of Oct 6-7 (Annapolis Boat Show-work)! Dan aka RockHead

    After the MRI, went to the Pedi-Hemonc clinic for a checkup, and this happened to turn up! Yes, that's the Pebble hugging the Stanley Cup! A few more shots of other cancer kids (and docs) here.
