      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.

    anyone need an extra hand on Sat NOOD? PShift is out for the LD because of lack of crew.
  2. Chicago Area III

    Too bad Riot Fest is the same weekend.
  3. Chicago Area III

    Kind of a bummer that no jets will be in the show this year. Good luck with your NA's.
  4. Chicago Area III

    What's going on out on the water this weekend?
  5. Chicago Area III

    Nah, It was funny. I won't be at the party on Friday so I'll see you and all you other clowns up on the Island - and everyone from Circus, too

    That's not very nice. Forecast keeps looking better and better. Race to the wind a little ways north and then a roller coaster ride for the rest.

    So little Mac Chatter - okay, I will start it off - what about this forecast? http://www.lakeeriewx.com/Racing/RTM-2013/Tuesday/RTM_Tuesday.html The WPC surface forecast for Friday continues to show Lake Michigan under the influence of a large area of high pressure. While the GFS wind forecast for Friday afternoon suggests southerly winds of less than 10 knots, I am concerned that the wind forecast may be too optimistic. Considering the weak pressure gradient over southern Lake Michigan, a forecast for light and variable winds may be more appropriate. On Saturday, the pressure gradient near Lake Michigan increases in advance of a slow-moving cold front. This increased gradient should promote southerly breezes in the range of 10 to 15 knots from Saturday morning into Saturday afternoon. Between Saturday and Sunday morning, the cold front is expected to make little forward progress as it advances from central Minnesota to the northwestern shore of Lake Superior. The pressure gradient is forecast to relax during this period resulting in southwesterly winds of 10 knots or less during Saturday night and Sunday. The cold front will finally make its way down Lake Michigan on Monday. Southwesterly winds of 10 knots or less are expected for most of Monday. Due to the persistent cold front in the upper Midwest, there is a threat for severe thunderstorms over northern Lake Michigan from Saturday into Monday. At this point, the probability is too low to predict.

    Happy week before Sailor Christmas, everyone.

    Anyone looking for foredeck or trimming help this weekend?
  10. Chicago Area III

    Hey gents, long time no talk via SA - hope you're all well. Anyone have any West Marine purchases coming up? I got a $200 Gift Card as a gift but there's nothing I really need. Looking to unload this thing for $160. PM me.

    What a blast yesterday! Swimming, floorboard wakeboarding, warm weather - and a couple of good spins around the cans once the weather filled in. Fun times indeed.
  12. Chicago Area III

    Anyone need anyone for Sunday?
  13. Chicago Area III

    I won't get as passionate as Blubs here but I kind of agree. What a pretty cool event to be involved with and was surprised by the lack of familiar faces at the Pier. Bump. Having been to these CMRC events before I can say I'm pretty bummed to have missed it. Always world class action. Without Bayview I would have been there for sure.

    Is anyone looking for a hotel roommate on the Island? Staying till Weds.
  15. Chicago Area III

    What boat is that? That's wild. And cool.
