just like the hundreds of other OD events for many classes if there is no weigh in and still racing under the class OD rules. 

just like your weight of the boat and or any modifications (bottom jobs, removing weight, etc....) - they don't check it every time, but you are still racing under the

class OD rules.

for some reason, people think the total crew weight (40 + or -) 2-4 days before you actually race (not actually when the class rule is effect) makes a big difference and  

crew weigh ins have been part of the scene. as you can see a lot of the more popular classes have done away with them without 

losing boats on the line. 

smart for the owners and class to do this, should attract more to the fun (owners and crew).

sounds like not much fun at all - great way to scare people off and also crew

then the owners need to step up.

 

here is fact for all - there will be ONLY one class that has to weigh in for KWRW, guess which one. 

that is a burden for the organizers. isn't like there will be a bunch of people to weigh.

Ha!!!

Weigh ins are bs - you weigh in 2-5 days before a event and that is your official weigh in. then by the next day of gorging and drinking, the team weighs 50 lbs more and what does that do?

makes the weigh in a non factor. 

maybe we should make the cali boats weigh in before and after racing to make sure they are following at least that rule. 

 

owners still have time to stand up and be heard.
