Ok, given concerns that have been raised and the fact that there is no actual policy set, Spike and I have been discussing the best approach to allowing underage members at meet-ups so that both their interests and FF's interests are best served. There are many different options to consider, and rather than start a poll with about 6 different choices, we've put together this idea to throw open for discussion and thoughts. After much discussion, debating, throwing ideas back and forth, and research we have come up with the following proposal. 1) Any member under 16 years of age must have adult accompaniment/supervision at meets 2) Any member 16-17 years of age must have signed parental permission to attend meets, and the CR must have had phone contact with the parents beforehand. We realise that point 2 might seem OTT, but we have to consider that FF has no civil liability insurance, and so anyone under 18 must have a signed waiver from the parents to acknowledge that FF is not liable for anything that happens whilst the member is at a meet. So what are yout thoughts on this?
