      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.

MSG Memorial Carpool & Caravan

32 posts in this topic

I'm planning to drive from Warwick, RI this weekend to attend MSG's memorial gathering.

 

I figure to leave early enough not to get screwed by construction and traffic (it's about 3.5 hours from here to there so we should be on the road no later than 10:00, perhaps a little earlier to leave a bit of a margin for error) and come back Saturday evening afterwards.

 

Anyone want to share rides, carpool, or caravan up if there are enough of you?

 

I live less than ten minutes from T.F. Greene airport for those of you figuring if this makes sense. We can certainly meet up at a park and ride or some such thing - there is one off of exit 10 on 95 or we could meet here. We can also collect people at bus/train stops if needed of course - there are both at the airport.

You are referring to a 10am Saturday morning departure from RI to head to Albany, and a Saturday afternoon (?) gathering, yes?

OK - my plan has changed. Leaving MUCH earlier, more like 0700 or so in order to get to town earlier to catch up with others.

 

Carpoolers still welcome of course, but I'm hitting the road early.

I've already told MSS I'm not going to be there. Saturday is my birthday, and I'm planning to have a bunch of friends round to look at the ocean, lift toasts to Catherine, to life and its living, and get blind, stinking drunk.

 

Seems a rather fitting thing to do, and I feel certain that Catherine would approve.

 

Perhaps I should stock in a few Sharpies.

I can not attend (BJ - you'll represent RI sailors?) but I certainly could send Sharpies along!

 

BTW - BJ? Calendar?

Thursday should be good. Friday is OK later too, but my son has a regatta in the afternoon I want to catch so not until after that.

Wes, when you and stang go to sign can you please write this for me;

 

Catherine,

 

You will always be remembered forever. Please keep an eye on my ship for me during those hard nights at sea. I'll look for you in the stars above me.

 

C/M Jesse W. a.k.a. Dubz

 

Or if Wes doesn't make it to your place BJ could you possibly write it?

see you soon mainsheetsister, sol, bj and bowgirl.

 

I've been thinking and searching and trying (daily) to see if I could get to Albany, but I finally know now that it's not in the card$ for me to pull off a trip to NY. In other words.... no joy. :(

Please give each other long hugs from me. I will be there in spirit.

It is a beautiful crisp cool day here in Albany.

Crisp? For a Floridian in flipflops perhaps. :lol:

Downright balmy for us and unseasonably warm actually.

R1 - slammed out at boat end of startline by something I totally missed (stupid mistake) - recovered and took a 2nd

R2 - great start - awesome first beat to top mark only to snag a crab trap on our keel 1/3 way down to leward mark - doh! - 4th

R3 - great start - perfect set at top mark - fading breeze - held on for a 2nd in a shortened race

 

Great afternoon with some cool peeps on board...and thoughts of MSG woven throughout the day. B)
