Subject: Lido 14 Bulletin #1


This is the very first e-mail bulletin from the Lido 14 Class Association!


First, a few notes and ground rules.


The email addresses used in this mailing were provided by members in good

standing with the Class Association.  They are the same as those that will

be published in the Class Roster/Handbook and as such are only intended for

use by fellow members.  The Lido 14 Class Association will not knowingly

provide these addresses to non-members. We will only intentionally publish

an email address to the public (i.e. via the Web page) with the explicit

permission of each member.  Initially, I'm going to send bulletins using

Blind Carbon Copy (BCC) transmissions.  This should hide your address from

everyone else's view.


Use of fellow member's email addresses for commercial purposes is strictly

frowned upon (it's way bad netiquette to spam!)


If someone does spam you, please feel free to spam the heck out of them.

Better yet, let me know and we'll gang up on him/her.  Got the point?


If, in the future, we see a need for commercial notices, we'll create

another email broadcast channel for just that use.


If you have an item for submission, comments, changes, corrections, etc.,

please address them to me, John Papadopoulos, the Lido 14 Class Webmaster at  I'm often travelling and can't always respond to

emails promptly.  Be patient as I work out the rhythm of this bulletin.  In

fact, I hop onto a plane in just a few hours to attend the US Sailing

Championship of Champions and then I'm off to watch the Olympic Trials for

the 470 class in St. Pete, FL.  I expect to be online while away but you

never know.

Balboa Yacht Club's Sunkist Series is starting in just a few weeks.  This

series spans 4 months (one day each month) and is decidedly low key and fun

given that the start/finish is adjacent to the club, allowing for

refreshment breaks between races. entry fee!. Click the following
