I'm not sure. Oversight on my part as I was given the list by Jim. I just updated it as I saw he had called out John and John declined. My fault for assuming....but that's all irrelevant as Jim and James both dropped off the list.

There is no member of this forum with the name "pop rocks". That's the name of his boat. But you'd know that, right?

Well Brad that right there is exactly where the confusion came from. If no race took place and no formal call out was made there should be no advancement. I'm not stirring the pot I'm just calling it like I see it. What's the point of rules if people one the list aren't following them let alone the founder calling names and cursing at people for questions regarding confusion in not only the rules of the list but advancement in the list as well.

And referring to my boat as non competitive I see everyone and their brother stating how fast their boat goes on this forum with no proof and their boats maybe run 70s. How I am personally ill cal anyone out on their bullshit when they say they are running 80s/90s I'd rather line up and then prove it.

Furthermore I think it's a bit ridiculous that the founder of SCJB just put down someone's boat who supports this group. YOU aren't SoCalJetBoats Brad. It's the people attending the events who are, the people who look up to the guys running in the top 5 as something to push forward to, the people buying all these stickers off of a game David McKinley started. I think you should reevaluate all the statements you've made today and reflect a little bit on them. Because if that's what SCJB is about I want no part of it

I understand the frustration but wasn't Jims boat unfinished as well? There's no need to cuss at me Brad. As far as the list goes I saw another member call out the #10 spot and somehow that post was removed. And from what I read on the other post Bostick stated we knew where he was and if someone wanted a piece to head down and he'd run it. With the season just starting I think it would be a good idea to update the list and make some needed updates to the rules so everyone can enjoy and have a fun time racing. As stated before how fun is it to take a spot from someone who can't even make the race. All unfinished boats or unable to race boats should drop from the list until they can race throughout the season.

Not sure your need to keep this up my boat was ready for the call out date. Unfortunately John lost a piston and gave the spot up. As far as you and my friendship I don't know you. Now that I'm no longer on this list and you feel that we're all full of shit bring your boat and a few hundred and find out how ready my boat is. If that doesn't work for you just leave me out of your stories and we will be good thanks.

I agree with you. Unfortunately That is what we have to deal with in society now-a-days. People always hating on others.

On another note, some people do that shit on purpose because they know they are going to get a rise out of some people on this site. You are giving them what they want with you responding. Not worth the time, hassle, and stress brotha

I don't really think we should let one or two guys ruin anything good and fun we have. There's a lot more people that enjoy having the fun and racing that this list deal offers than not. That's reason enough to keep it going. Sometimes you just have to ignore some people and take them for what they are. Hope everyone has a good day.

You're right when calling out the 9 spot but rules are rules and 4 was broken so no advancement should have been made from the 10 spot. I read that thread and you did that correctly when publicly making a call out but it was out of order. And the word Friends I used loosely if you misunderstood my statement. I've met and know plenty of people from off of this forum all whom are awesome people. And no thanks Jim about the race I just wanted to have fun but I guess because I'm an outsider I'll keep to myself. If you do end up back in the list by making correct call outs and advancing I wish you the best. That's one killer float you just finished recently...

So, your original post was about rule #8. Not about rule #4. Now that I pointed out the rule #4 issue because you were 'confused', you're jumping on that bandwagon and driving it further into the ground over a single technicality which is completely irrelevant and does not impact you as you are not a person who is involved here. Jim and James both said their piece and have both left the list but you are still here posting about it? Why?

Yes, I am not SCJB and all the members here make it up. I have always said that from day one for the past 10 years. No, I didn't put your boat down, just stated the facts weather you like it or not. I said it wasn't competitive. Not a pile of shit, or slow or anything of the sort.

Since it seems like you will sit here and twist my words and the rules to your favor to win this argument like the liberal media, I'm done. This thread and all other threads will be locked.

This subject is done because you just don't get it. Bring it up again and I will have you removed from the site. This list is for fun, not side sideline and bitch about the rules. In this situation, only person who should be allowed to bitch about the rules are the parties involved. Not just some guy behind a keyboard who doesn't have any desire to help the list, but only to just be "that guy". And you are "that guy".
