Good point...it makes you think....why would a ordinary person, just out of a sense of community, organize a outing and then only have one of the group, say for argument's sake, take a tumble, etc, etc, which may involve the authorities (ie..SES), injuries, medical treatment, an inquiry, a court case, legal action, insurance/compensation....exactly what you are saying....
No one wants to take responsibility for their own actions anymore...it has to be someone else's fault.
One has to be so careful today and the good intentions of well meaning people is no protection at all!!!
