Hi Philip1,

Now that you mention age :hmz: . I think what was unique about this meet was the fact that the youngest was 1 year old and the most matured 85, with lots making up the years inbetween :thumbs_up: .

It was actually great to see how many of our young generation forms part of the forum :thumbs_up:. A good omen for the future :whistle: .
