I've re-registered here, but only to clear up some points on this thread.
First of all on the subject of insurance and liability. I expect attendees to take reasonable responsibility for their own actions. Where it is feasible I always let people know if swimmers will be present- those attending can make up their own minds whether they want to come.
With the exception of one young lad, who attends with his Father, everyone who runs at the Dive-ins is an adult and aware of what they're doing.
BTW do you check everyones insurance policy at shows etc. Or do you rely on their word? I ask because when I was member of the AMS I ran at many shows and was never asked for insurance, which is just as well, because I didn't have any.
For my part, I do what I can to ensure that safe running is adhered to, and when we share the pool with swimmers, that everyone stays within the sectioned-off area of the pool and keeps well away. The swimmers present at the Dive-ins are real hardcore (they need to be in those water temperatures) and far from regarding us as a hazard, they welcome us there and are fascinated by what they see. However as Ramesh pointed out, whenever possible I endeavour to book the pool when swimmers will not be present.
However this does not apply to St Albans, which is what this thread was about.
This venue is a private facility, there are no swimmers (except Paul Cook- can't keep him out of the water, although we do try).
Regarding the use of photography, I can find no law against taking pictures or video in a public place of children or otherwise, unless it is considered that you are a nuisance (e.g. harassment, breach of the peace), concentrating on specific individuals or breaching the official secrets act.
If you can find otherwise I would like to see it.
In regards to 'blurring' responsibility, you're going to have to be more specific there, as I haven't a clue what you're on about.
On the point of my attitude, I don't consider myself to be 'cavalier'. I hold down a responsible job, and if I was such I would quickly find myself collecting my P45.
Why don't you two get your heads together, find a venue and show us all how it's done. Or at very least make an effort to attend one of my events, because neither of you have been to any of them. Poor show chaps.
