I was bored(not much juicy drama threads lately)
So went to the end of the line of threads and was reading through some. I found several like this one.

Just clicking on some and finding out when their last post was.
Actually, it was making me sad not to mention older
Some are still active and in the hobby still

Yep, very few younger guys and gals showing up at our field. I would bet the average age at our field is late 40's or early 50's. We need to attract young people and keep the hobby alive.

It's the era of dumbing down, high-speed life and instant gratification. Hopefully the cycle will swing back the other way and people will rediscover this hobby some day.
