In fact one of the greatest criticisms of the scheme in the UK was that there was no proof at all - it was just one persons "idea".

Don't get me wrong, I love the modified equipment, but I don't like the mandate we have dictating what age can play what "colour" competition. Biological age should dictate, not chronological age.

Otherwise, well said!

the one person is the "belgian wink wink" steve martens Belgian what a coincidence.
