Wynn Paul is the Head Coach of the Greater Lexington Swim Association which is affiliated with the AAU. He has coached four National AAU Championship teams &9065 All-American AAU and Collegiate swimmers six national record holders and so on. Asa rekindled modeler he has competed off and on since 1967 finished ninth in CL stunt at the 1971 Nationals and placed 13th in FAI stunt tryouts. He has also been a club newsletter editor and CDed many Lexington Model Airplane Club contests.
What does all this have to do with fire Not a dam thing but have you ever heard Tommy Smothers tell about the time he fell in a big vat of chocolate He yelled FIRE
When his brother Dick asked why Tom replied If I had hollered CHOCOLATE do you think anyone would have come to pull me out
The gimmick here is that if we mentioned the Junior Problem in the title you probably would skip on to the next paragraph. Stay with us for a moment cause it looks like Wynn may have hit the nail on the head. Well try to sum up his six page letter to all AM A officials and to the national publications in a few words.
What Wynn is saying and it makes a lot of sense is that we need more age divisions for the lower age modelers. When you stop and think about it the average person acquires basic knowledge and common sense at a rapid rate in his early years and then this acceleration tapers off after maturity depending on environment background education etc. The ability to coordinate hands and mind and to soak up advice obviously improves at a much more rapid rate between the ages of . . . say 6 to 10 than it docs between the same time spread of 20 to 24 for instance.
In swimming there are six divisions 7-8 9-10 11-12 13-14 15-17 and open. In tennis its 10 and under 12 and under 14 and under 16 and under 18 and under and open. Football baseball and basketball have similar groupings as do most other competitive activities. In modeling 14 and under is sort of spreading it thin.
Wynn proposes that the AMA should for a start regroup at 10 and under 11- 13 15-17 18-21 and open. The next suggestion may have been made with tongue in cheek but he also proposes a vete an division or those 50 and over.
