mike here. Are you still at Palmer. I saw the winterover photo and noticed and Commander in it. They dismantled the IRLP link down here because of internet security concerns. Wish it was back. We enjoyed talking with the Boy and Girl scouts each week.
As to age restrictions. I think the only problem with age is passing the pq exam. If you read some of the posts on the discussion page you’ll see that you can flunk for almost anything that is out of line. Most healthy people will eventually pass, though. The problem with age is that there tends to be more things out of line.
On that note, there have been several late 60 and 70 year olds that have made it down here, so if it appeals to you go ahead and apply.
