      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.

    Sure perhaps at CYC. If you look in past years I bet there were close to as many boats from other clubs who came to do the race as there were participants from CYC. I did the Mills race for the first time in 20+ years of sailing on LE and it was staggering the number sponsors literature and info put out about the race. Multiple courses pre and post parties... It brings boats from detroit to erie. If you want 75 boats to do a race like that that is what you have to do. Otherwise this is what happens. As for the Q on the schedule that's just an other throwout for those who just don't want to do it, I personally don't think that way but it is a sad fact. It has been publicized -- here, via emails, via personal phone calls, via the CSA website, via text messaging, via the CYC schedule which has been posted since end of April. The race has been run for 83 years... it's amazing how things just tend to creep up on people and when the time comes (too late) everyone all of a sudden has an opinion. Where were these opinions when there was a tabled discussion last fall at CYC? This spring? In the survey that I sent, directly, to everyone at our club, made publicly available to everyone else, and received a total of (3) responses? Stop pointing fingers that this was "not advertised." If you had "multiple people over the past month" asking you about the race, why was I not contacted? I don't need the rude and offensive emails, phone conversations, etc from the very few that DID sign up, pointing the blame on myself... that most certainly solves the issue doesn't it? The distance race was cancelled because it is impossible to justify what all had been planned for a mere 4-5 boats. It will be scheduled for next year -- in April -- like it always has been. If people want to wake up now and actually decide more than a day in advance if they're attending, perhaps an even better party/race/schedule can be arranged for all. Hard to throw an event when there are no RSVPs, don't you think? Thanks. Rob Thank you for running the race the past three years, thank you for doing the survey to try and make changes to attract more boats. I find it amusing that the ones on this forum lamenting the cancellation did not even have an entry in. You can not run an event on "maybe we will race" or "can we sign up the night before". I should not be surprised as they are the same people who never offer to help. If you don't like what happened get off your ass and help. There is more to running an event or race than drinking the free beer. If I offended anyone you know where to find me. Robert SR

    Weak Agree, we wonder why turnouts are down? Maybe not having sailflow 15 years ago was a good thing. Sure did, had to catch a plane to Egypt. Still enjoyed the sail. I thought I recall Mr. Ed dropping out and turning on the blender last year. Maybe why finishers are down.

    Does it really matter where it starts or ends or where you keep your boat? You have to do one "round trip" anyway assuming you don't sell the boat at the finish. Now that is a good idea!
