Perhaps it might help better motivate all of us to take more action to recruit 
new Contesters into the fold if event Sponsors would start requiring "Age" with 
the log submissions and include same in published results (excepting YL's & 
XYL's, of course :-)

Being able to do some statistical sorts & analysis should boldly confirm year 
by year that Contesting as we know it is on more of a fast track to extinction 
than most realize...unless a heck of a lot of "new blood" is recruited and 
elemered ASAP.

IMHO & 73...

"Age 62" and considerably more aware (daily) of how fast time is not passing,
