Tim,

First off, do you really mean that you hate to disagree with me ;-)


Seriously, way too many things can go wrong under water and putting a 10 year old in that situation makes no sense in my view..

Take for example the fatality Thursday at Casino Point, a father and son team as I understand it.. We always assume when talking about 10 year old that the buddy will be fine, what would happen if that son in the Thursday fatality was a 10 year old??? Do you believe a 10 year old kid would have the presecence of mind when his father is dying right before his eyes to stay calm???

I just don't see 10 year olds possesing the necessary capability and sound judgement to engage in this sport.. What harm does it do making them wait a few years???

Later
