Another poll should be, "What age group do you fall into"?

I would guess that most are over 50-55 years of age, at least the ones with 20+ years experience.

I am 49 with 16-17 years experience; started late.

I know a great deal of the regulars in the lounge are over 60, some over 70. Not too many 20-30 year old people hanging out there. Laugh | :laugh:
