      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.

    I haven't raced my boat in a one design section in Chicago for nine years before this years J Day and Mac race and I must say it was really fun. It is nice to see the class is still alive and kickin and I thank Jon Weglarz for volunteering his time and energy as fleet captain.

    If said "code zero" is made from a laminate instead of nylon then it is a violation of class rules. If it is just a tight reaching chicken chute then it is perfectly legal and I applaud them for trying to optimize the performance of their boat, I just wish they wouldnt call it a code zero as I have a true code zero with furler and bobstay and was bummed I couldnt use it.

    Ask Weglarz how many 105s flew code zeros during the Mac when class rules dont allow them. I know at least Rocking Horse did as their story in the national newsletter explained in detail how they were passing boats using their "secret weapon" a brand new Ullman code zero. Ours was in my attic. WTF.
