In Topic: fouling finish pin

Years ago, in a club race that was twice around, the Committee Boat was a mark.  In almost zero wind we barely touched the boat's anchor line with our boom.  We get back to the club and find out we are listed as DSQ!  I ask why and was told it was because we hit a mark and didn't do any penalty turns.  My (at the time) 12 year old son who was crew said that the anchor line is not part of the mark, "everybody knows that", and also what's with the DSQ?  The Race Committee reinstated us in the position we actually finished.  This was with a well established, very active racing, SoCal Club, by the way

I turned in a shotgun to the police a few years ago. ( It had been sitting in a closet unused for about 20 years and wife hated it, so... )   I called them first because I definitely didn't want to stroll into the PD holding a double barrel 12 gauge.  A cop came to the house, had me fill out some paperwork, and took it.  Cop was kind of prick, actually, but it felt better knowing that it went there, rather than being sold or given away to who knows who.

The prices charged to members are sometimes less than visitors because they do, after all, pay dues to that club. A different pricing structure for non-members seems perfectly reasonable to me.
