I'd like to add a note of clarification.
When you think about it, how many minors have we heard ask "Can I play in a public park?"
Now I know we've heard and seen a few groups of this actually going on.
If we can work something out for those minors to have a location to safely play at. Maybe it's the 'lesser of evils' ?
Hell, a game I was at very recently there was I believe a 14 JUST turned 15 year old.
Did we have any problems? No not at all, he was a great player.
If you can demonstrate the respect, maturity and understanding. And to boot, demonstrate you know your shit and safety?
Sure why not, I'd be for it at certain events if they knew what they were doing.
