    I agree with you Mike about considering the ethical question. Let's not wait until dawn to consider the ethical implications at the next meeting!

    It dawned on me that we did not discuss ethical implications - should adults (over 18) be allowed to play sports such as football after they have been informed of the risks of short-term and long-term damage that may occur as a result. Same for those under 18 who have parents' consent. Is it ethical for a Society to override the decision of a person who wants to play football, or box, or even go white water rafting, all of which have a risk of injury, "for their own good"?

    Discussion went from sports injuries to corporate sports. Is there any action to take or are we just better informed?

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
