Subject: Demo safety PIRA committee


Hello all,

I wonder if perhaps we might try and get out ahead of the repercussions (if any) from Dale's accident and form a subcommittee (Perhaps part of the DCS committee) and evaluate some of our more popular demos for safety. A rating system perhaps? I'm a little ambivalent because I believe the best protection is a good understanding of what you're doing. But even the best of us can make mistakes or be lulled into a sense of security because nothing has ever happened doing things the same old way.

Other potential side effects is administrations might then just proclaim an entire class of demos off limits, rather than perhaps just banning one or two.

What do you all think?
