      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.

    If you're referring to circle 2, combining the fleets was just to get an extra race in. However, I'm not sure why they did the same yesterday since we had plenty of wind. I wouldn't describe their work as a cluster.

    I think they have the traffic cop working more effectively now. I got there right at 6pm and even though there was a long line of cars, it was only a couple minutes to get into the club.

    I bet Wanenmacher's were busy that day.

    @ Corey - are you racing your hobie cat? Since the last time went so well!

    There were mods to one T10 that were not expressly forbidden. The plaintiff is suing the Board, chief measurer, and a few others (including the person who raised the initial concern) for damages exceeding $25k in two separate areas. It appears the bylaws were not followed properly to revoke the certificate, but seeing as the origin of the certificate may be in question (since the at-the-time Chief Measurer owned said certificate) I'm not sure how the legal ramifications will shake down. The pictures, sadly, are not in the report, which would really help clarify just how much some of these mods would help stiffen the hull. In the bigger picture, this lawsuit sends a seemingly chilling message to those who volunteer to serve their fleet - Don't stick your neck out to help your fleet & the sport since you might face some hefty legal bills. There's a lot more going on with this than is represented in the front page article. It's a really bad situation for everyone involved but there are strong arguments on both sides of the case.

    There is another link at the bottom to the photos of RR. http://5.wews.com/eSBMS. Also, I just heard a catamaran on A dock at Edgewater YC is swamped. And why would anyone in their right mind leave a furled jib on board during this? (Klew-less perhaps?) There were several that made it through just fine from what i saw yesterday.

    Better chance for making last call at Frosty's? Just guessin'. Shows where most folks priorities are. And am not sure that is such a good thing either. We raced the Mills in 2010 and they put us on the Governors course (t10 phrf). Do they give you a choice on which course you get? I think we're going to race next year. It was a fun time.

    Great work by the committee, RC and volunteers. Solid event. +1 +1 are results up? Word is video of ZAR shakin' it to the Black Eyed Peas will be available on Youtube later today. A sign of a fantastic event.... Yeah, we kind of shanghai'd the ipod. We got yelled at but seeing ZAR dance around was worth it.

    Bueller, Bueller? Are any of you t10 guys coming to bay, if not why? and they better be good excuses... I know the B367 fleet is hurting right now, with 2 cleveland boats out for some time. THE BIG ELECTRIC CAT will be representing though! While this could probably said about any T10, I'm thinking of a few in particular. Kids, both new and unborn (too young) Medical issues (too old) Work obligations (too busy) Legal obligations (to hell with the judge) Our excuse - and it is a good one (at least to us): #5 Crew is going cruising
