      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.

How much cardboard glue have u been sniffing?

 

They bought the old Puma Avanti as a trainer.. Azzam is a new build, correct.

 

Puma Avanti is formerly ABN Amro Two. Il Mostro is an entirely different beast.

 

Is it ABN Amro Two that has already done the race or Il Mostro... looks like it is the ride from last trip round the marble. They held on to their previous one pretty tight till this go round.

ABN AMRO Two (the white boat)did the Chicago to Mac. She was bought by Puma as a trainer boat and renamed Avanti.

 

Il Mostro is the boat Puma Built for the last Volvo.

Looks like another great day for frostbiting this Sunday at CYC Belmont.

 

We had 12 Lasers and 14 V15's on the line last week.

 

Come on out and join us this Sunday.

 

Just a quick heads up - there will be no 420's racing this Sunday afternoon - High School Regatta has the boats.

So the latest I've heard is Harbors open next week, locks will be open with delays, right?

 

Sounds about right regarding locks open with delays, but they've also got some dates (April 28-May 1) when the locks will be closed altogether.

 

Notice to Navigation Interests

 

 

Sorry, the above link directed to Notice 12-002. It was superseded by Notice 12-003, which is the one on the chicagoharbors.info page. New link here.

Volvo SA Area III Cup Update

 

All have not finished Leg 5 yet, but I decided to update our scores anyway for those who have finished. The series has added a few more boats since last. The official Volvo game scorer has a tie for first place in Leg 5. Both Skidmarks and prettyhatemachine finished in 17d22h50m, so I have awarded both a first place. The scores for the bottom half will likely change as the rest of the fleet finishes. TP2 had a daughter delivered during Leg 5 and still took 5th place. Pretty damn good. Tonybowker didn't run aground and Skidmarks never slept, also pretty damn good. Again, note that only those who have finished as of Friday are scored below

Fuck this, my app was FUBA(lls)R for days, almost a week. This leg should be aba(lled)ndoned... Hey, you've got both Skidballs and prettyhatemyballs as 1... What about Irishballs and Countryballs? FUCKING BALLS! Balls, balls, balls, balls!!

 

Four-and-twenty virgins come down from Inverness,

And when the Ball was over, there were four-and-twenty less,

 

Singin' balls to your partner, your ass against the wall,

If ya never been laid on a Saturday night, ya never been laid at all..

 

There was doin' in the parlor, there was doin' on the stones,

But ya couldn't a hear the music for the wheezin' and the groans,

 

Singin' balls to your partner, your ass against the wall,

If ya never been laid on a Saturday night, ya never been laid at all.

 

The undertaker, he was there, all wrapped up in a shroud,

Swingin' from the chandelier, and peein' on the crowd,

 

Singin' balls to your partner, your ass against the wall,

If ya never been laid on a Saturday night, ya never been laid at all.

 

The village cripple, he was there, ah he could not do much,

So he lined the ladies against the wall, and he did 'em with his crutch,

 

Singin' balls to your partner, your ass against the wall,

If ya never been laid on a Saturday night, ya never been laid at all.

 

Miss Mary McPherson was standin' way up front,

Some posies in her hand, and a carrot in her cunt,

 

Singin' balls to your partner, your ass against the wall,

If ya never been laid on a Saturday night, ya never been laid at all.

 

The Village postman, he was there, but the poor man had the pox,

He could not do the lassies, so he did the letter box,

 

Singin' balls to your partner, your ass against the wall,

If ya never been laid on a Saturday night, ya never been laid at all.

 

The Village Magician, he was there, he gave us all a laugh,

He pulled his foreskin over his head, and he vanished up his ass,

 

Singin' balls to your partner, your ass against the wall,

If ya never been laid on a Saturday night, ya never been laid at all.

 

 

Faack i missed this one... flashbacks of John Valby!!!

 

The Village schoolmarm, she was there, she did a clever stunt,

She picked up her dress and spread her legs and whistled through her cunt!

 

Singin' balls to your partner, your ass against the wall,

If ya never been laid on a Saturday night, ya never been laid at all.

 

The Village idiot, he was there, doing this and that,

Amusing himself, abusing himself, and catching it in his hat!

 

Singin' balls to your partner, your ass against the wall,

If ya never been laid on a Saturday night, ya never been laid at all.

I first heard this when I was about 10 years old, and at summer camp where the counselors were all English and Irish. But the verse was,

Peter needs to take up a new hobby. Seriouly, twice within a years time? Maybe he'd be better suited with lion taming, or bomb building...

 

If not a new hobby, perhaps he trades his tippy dinghy in for a boat with a keel that will right itself, like a J/24.

 

WTF?

Has anyone seen the final coast guard Regs regarding the NATO summit? Looks like both Monroe/DuSable and Burnam Park Harbors will be off limits for 8 days...

land and water areas in Chicago Harbor and

the Chicago River during the NATO

Summit and associated events, which will be

held in Chicago from May 16, 2012, through

May 24, 2012. These security zones are

necessary to protect visiting government

officials and dignitaries from the potential

dangers associated with a large scale,

international political event.

PART 165—REGULATED NAVIGATION

087°38′15″ W. [DATUM: NAD 83].

(4) Security Zone D—Security D

encompasses all U.S. navigable waters

of the Chicago River between Mile Marker

322.0, which is in the vicinity of the Loomis

Street coal storage terminal slip, and Mile

Marker 326.4, which is in the vicinity of the

Chicago Tribune Wharf. [DATUM: NAD

83].

( Enforcement period. Theseblink.gif

security zones will be effective and

enforced between 8 a.m. on May 16,

2012, and 8 a.m. on May 24, 2012.

© Regulations. (1) In accordance with

§ 165.33, entry into any area of these

Wow, so is there really going to be enough room at 31st for everyone? And isn't 31st street closer to McCormick than DuSable?

 

Also, I get why they want the boats out a few days before, but why 3 days after the meetings?

I was on the watch list. It almost took an act of congress to get off. Classified that you are on a list, classified which of 17 possible agencies put you there no legal recourse, but we are convincing our military personnel they are defending our freedom (no disrespect directed at the military) with there life and limb. And this is freedom?

Yeah, probably I do. I just get a little annoyed when the government does stupid things just because it can as opposed to putting a little thought in it. (And sharing their thought processes...)

Also received this response from a one of the Navy Pier Ship Captains:

 

 

You are reading the reg's correctly and that iscurrently how it stands. However, in press releases and at ourInternational Ship Master's Industry Day the USCG suggested that they wouldlikely be making exceptions to the restrictions for the tour and workboats. Recreational vessels may not get the exception.

 

 

The reason it remains an unknown is everyone(USCG, Police Marine Unit, ILDNR, etc.) is because the Secret Service will notreveal their plan until sometime shortly before the start of this event.

 

 

 

So we're all kind of waiting to see right now.

 

 

 

Hope that helps,
