Don't increase select age to 62

I would urge the task force that is examining the idea of raising the Select age to 62 not to make this mistake. The idea that this will increase the size of the amateur classes is untrue. We could already ride the amateur division if we wanted to. Clearly most of us don't. If you raise the age limit, many of us will choose not to show anymore. The loss of amateurs was due to the disastrous idea of the novice roll back. People who were previously showing amateur chose to return to novice. Please don't compound the initial mistake.
