Average age of members?

For a number of reasons I got to thinking about ages today - and I've been trying to remember whether or not anyone has done the "How old are you?" bit here at MWK.

I know we've got a wide range of ages - from teenagers on up to ??? but just how old? And where do the bulk of the guys who join here fit>

For myself - I'm about as close to mid-50's as one can get.....six months to go until I hit a double nickel.

tho' maybe this would be better done as a poll as some people may not want to say...

In April, I hit 50, but until then I check off the 45-49 category :)

ummm...well, I'm 33, but my boss tells me that I look at LEAST 40. and some days, after a couple too many drinks I FEEL like I am 50...

I'm 40, but I can still do the splits, so I'm OK with it.

I turned 37 yesterday, but my daughter (who turns 3 in two weeks) keeps saying that I turned 7. I wouldn't necessarily mind being a little younger, but that's probably a bit much.

I'm 35. So far most of us seem to be the same age, namely closer to 30 than to 25 :)

On April 21st I will celebrate the 32nd anniversary of my 21st birthday. I always think about it that way. Somehow it makes being 50-something not seem so old. I am planning to complete my first Half Ironman in Sept. of this year, also!

It looks like I take the prize for the oldest. I am 75 and still going strong. My partner and I (he's a youngster...60) travel a lot and I keep busy volunteering. I started knitting in the 3rd grade, so I guess I have been knitting for 69 years...WOW !!

49 going on 14 - I can't seem to escape puberty. I'll hit the big 50 in September. When I check new member profiles it seems that most of them are 40ish.

I will be turning 51 on May 18th, the day after the Men's Spring Knitting Retreat. The retreat is my birthday present to myself. :-)

I turned 70 in Nov 08 but still keep wondering where the lasy 50 years went to.... ;)

VTandPTguy's picture

61 here. But that does not compute; last I recall, my grandparents were in their sixties!

Thomasknits's picture

So far I'm the youngest to have posted on this one. 21 since this past January. But I tend to get along really well with older people... I tire of my peers sometimes.

You realize when I first read your comment my mind did not register the "well" in the statement. I almost got a heart palpitation. ;-)

phew - the answers had been getting a bit depressing there for a while - I feel much better now.

My twin turns 54 in July. (One friend, Bless her, always asks me if I'm having a birthday on the 14th of July, or if it is just my brother's B-day.) I, personally, only feel like I'm in my 30's to mid-40's. How I hate it when my body reminds me just how old it is. Thank goodness it isn't too often. Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Visit Crafty Andy's Blog I will be 49 in April, but I fell like two 24.5 year olds trapped inside my body! I shall let them free! I do share some of my toys! I play well with others.

I am 34 (35 in August) - I think. (seriously, figuring out how old I am makes me so confused) - I still look at people strange when they call me "sir" - I feel like a kid and still have no idea what I want to be when I "grow up"!

Yeah, I will be 25 in May and I am not happy about it. Most of the women I want to date can't go to the bar with me. Though I don't go out that often, I would like to not have to go to Denny's or somewhere like that for a late snack.

Average age of members? My member turned 47 this past January. Oy.

Somehow I knew either you or Albert would turn the phrase in that direction.
