      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.

    Everyone should stop by the OYS booth at the boatshow. Almost everyone featured in the video they are playing are the people that resigned. They should really have a video of blue hairs not sailing and hanging out on their derelict boats getting drunk and complaining about anyone under the age of 40.

    Holla, yes OHYC clowns were the driving force behind the entire situation. And yes $18000.00 was spent on removing a member (who was also a board member) from the club. It's a very unfortunate situation when egos of a few ruin it for the majority. There are some great people at OYS, but I fear the club is doomed with the impending lease negotiation with the town of Oakville and the willful loss of its youth membership. The club will be municipalized and fall by the wayside. The powers that be worry more about new BBQ's and bar revenue then they do about racing or cruising or sailing in general. When the people that run any yacht club only use their boats 4 or 5 times a season and really have no active involvement in sailing there is real trouble. I'm just warning young sailors to stay the hell away, there are other options in town that strive to promote youth, not stifle them.

    Wynott. I agree with you. Problem is the board jumped to his defence regardless of the years of problems with this guy. They should have just called the cops.

    Based on many first hand accounts and complaints rusty. You should check with your buddies.

    OYS recently lost all its members under 40 because the commodore and rear commodore refused to deal with a club member who is a known pervert. He just happens to be friends with the two flag officers. I would steer clears of that place.
