Re: [RC] [RC] AERC Survey question on age requirements to ride - Merryben - KimFue

Thanks Maryben,
   Your post does help put this issue in perspective.
You can talk about how the BOD and the Junior Committee ignore the wishes of the membership all you want, but here are the correct numbers.  570 members out of a membership of about 6,000 said they wanted an age restriction.  Out of that number 188 said at least 8 years old and 165 said over 8 years old.  The rest said anywhere from 5 to 8.  Only about 18% of the entire membership even answered the question.  And that is why the board and the junior committee decided to leave it alone.  There is no majority of the AERC membership that wants to change the way things are.
