Not to sound rude but does this newsgroup permit commercial
advertising?? Maybe I need to read the FAQ... please point us to it!

Hi Everybody whose calluses have lost their firmness and I envy those
whose never went spongy over the winter (FL, TX, HI...). The Oregon Coast
has been a wonderful, soggy working environment. You'll soon see we've
grown more than moss over the winter!

Hi Taurus,
How's life on Central Coast? Still winter here on Ore. coast.
Re your Q: "does this newsgroup permit commercial advertising?"

I've never considered Wind Tracks to be a commercial venture. I've always
thought of a commercial venture to be something you "have" to do while
daydreaming about windsurfing. But with our jobs at the mag we're
daydreaming about windsurfing for a living.
I can't help it if I'm pumped up. Clay Feeter/Wind Tracks Mag

Its fine to get pumped but I think commercial means: engaging in,
resulting from, or pertaining to, trade or business. If Wind Tracks is a
non profit publication, fine. But if is a business that makes profit for
its owners by definition its commercial and not in line with many
newsgroups charters. If you like you can ammend the charter, but you
will have to sell your point of view to all the groups readers. I think
most of the exclusion of commercial advertising has been to keep the
newsgroups from degenerating into advertiser forums. Personnaly I don't
care, but there are some people out there that get steamed... especially
the one's that are jonesing for a ride or a newsgroup stoke and all they
get is adverti***ts ;)

Spring has sprung here, had a full gale last thursday and more sailing
days than not the past 2 weeks, your spring is coming soon... enjoy!

        In all the years I have been on rec.windsurfing (8 years to be exact),
we as a group never had a problem with commercial advertising as it
pertains to windsurfing.  If a shop is having a sale, or a new issue of
a windsurfing magazine is announced, or someone is renting a condo near
a windsurfing spot, we all (or most) enjoy that information, commercial
or not.  We DON'T appreciate postings, commercial or not, that have
NOTHING to do with windsurfing.  There is no OFFICIAL charter that I
have ever read for this group, so I guess Clay has not breached any rule
that I know of.  I enjoy hearing from the guys at Windtracks, on
occasion.  If I didn't I would just hit delete.  Its simple, it works.

You may be right about that - But Clay does get ripped here on Newsgroups
everyonce in a while. So just check it out from time to time - its a good
laugh.
Not wanting to be too commercial my self - but:

Recently updated the California Windsurfing Web site:

1) New  California Windsurfing pictures to load up your hard drive with.
2) More Maps showing over 25 locations in California with Hot--links to
real-time
wind conditions to make sure you are going to the RIGHT PLACE!
3) Updated Graphics on most pages.
4) Moving Gif's - Check out the Laughing Dolphin!
5) '97 Event Schedule for So Cal - so far! Nor Cal yet to come.
