One of the misconceptions that seems to keep coming up
is that most hams become hams when they are young, and
stay hams their entire life.  So we believe that we
can only attract young people.  Why limit our hobby to
them. Amateur radio makes a great retirement hobby. 
Those individuals have the time and disposible income
to really play-contesting is not a cheap endeavor.

At the last radio class I taught every student but one
was older than I (and I am 40).
