    [RC] Very young riders - Linda


        Thank You for writing a letter on an issue that obviously needs to be addressed.  There is a minimum age for drinking, driving, etc, and in a sport that is considered "extreme" to most.... there should be a minimum age for the participants.  In this sport medical help is not always right around the corner and the members of this organization would feel awful if a child were seriously injured, but why do we have to wait until that happens.   Children not only gain alot by participating in activities, but
    training and looking forward to the day that they reach the age to participate.
    Thank You again...
    Linda (who is sticking to the issue, not attacking those I don't agree with)
