This was  posted on the NZec12 site awhile ago with no result,perhaps it may get more coverage here ...............

 In my capacity as Nautic 12 Publicity Officer I again would like to invite any EC12 skipper who wishes to attend to join us at this upcoming event.Last years event (2008) was deemed a success we had 10 boats on the water as well as telivision coverage and interview which was carried on TV3 news.So I strongly urge the EC12 class to send a couple of boats if possible.I will have my EC12 along and am happy to sail it on the day rather than my N12.

And this was publicity about what, to whom and when? And by the N12 Publicity person who is not pushing Nautic 12 but EC12. I can see why nobody has replied for we are all in stunned silence!!

C'mon let's be positive here Ancient One - I was thinking one answer out of the three I asked for was a good start, I'm looking forward to the rest.

(and I don't see what the All Black score has to do with your post either?????)

As always thanks Rob for the invite. ;)

There are obviously many reasons to come as well as not come. Other than a couple of EC's in Auckland the next nearest willing to travel is probably me and a couple of others local here in Kapiti - a mere 8 hours drive away.

The time of year also presents difficulites as us down here have kids returning to school at that time, the previous week is our Anniversary Day and the ever present cost to come. I know from recent rips northwards that if I cam on my own and had free accom at the Mother in Laws in One Tree Hill the fuel bill alone is around $200 plus the day either side to travel up and back in that precious leave balance from work.

Myself and Craig down here are also budgeting $$$ and time on next years Aussie Nats in Sydney in May? as well as the next International EC12 event in the USA at the beginning of November - well worth saving that extra few days of leave for.

A great idea but one fraught with logistical and cost barriers sorry.  :-[

For other uses, see Humour (disambiguation).
Look up humour, humor in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.Humour or humor (see spelling differences) is the tendency of particular cognitive experiences to provoke laughter and provide amusement. Many theories exist about what humour is and what social function it serves. People of most ages and cultures respond to humour. The majority of people are able to be amused, to laugh or smile at something funny, and thus they are considered to have a "sense of humour".

The term derives from the humoural medicine of the ancient Greeks, which stated that a mix of fluids known as humours (Greek: χυμός, chymos, literally: juice or sap, metaphorically: flavour) controlled human health and emotion.

A sense of humour is the ability to experience humour, although the extent to which an individual will find something humorous depends on a host of variables, including geographical location, culture, maturity, level of education, intelligence, and context. For example, young children may possibly favour slapstick, such as Punch and Judy puppet shows or cartoons (e.g. Tom and Jerry). Satire may rely more on understanding

and I don't see what the All Black score has to do with your post either??)

WHO IS JACK SCHITT?

For some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt?
We find ourselves at a loss when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt!'


Well, thanks to my genealogy efforts, you can now respond in an intellectual way.

Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt. Awe Schitt, the fertilizer
magnate, married O. Schitt, the owner of Knee-deep N. Schitt, Inc. They had one son, Jack.

In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt. The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt.

Against her parents' objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout. After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced.


Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt Sherlock.


Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition named Chicken Schitt. Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony.
 

The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials. 

The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Horse.

Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pisa Schitt.

NOW when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt,' you can correct them.

The essence of good reporting is to include all the necessary details (such as a venue and a time/date) - I was just encouraging you to finish supplying the details needed if you wanted any one else to attend. You put out the invitation, you need to supply those basic facts.

The essence of good humour is to lead in to the punch line - now if there had been a reference in the previous posts to something to do with anything to do with a ball or the West Island it might have been seen as humour. The way it came across was you accusing our Ancient friend of being a sore loser (in a totally unrelated sport).

Rest assured, I have a sense of humour - if I didn't this forum would have disappeared a couple of years ago.
