Sigh ... this came from our Facebook page, I really wish this was more of a bell-shaped curve...Furthermore, I know some of the women credited as being members are actually men using their wive's accounts...

Looks like the old car hobby in general. Remember, there is a certain level of disposable income and available time that has to be reached before such things as hobbies can be pursued in earnest. smiling smiley

My worry is that this is from Facebook -- it doesn't take money or resources to look at videos, and we still don't have younger people checking it out. Once upon a time, SACA's membrship skewed much, much younger. Maybe it's a stable trend, but it's kind of worrying.

So, what are you doing to attract younger folks to steam? I happen to be an engineer on a steam yacht and invite young people to come for a cruse to try to find younger folks to get interested. Complaining about Facebook analytics, does nothing to help pass the passion of steam to the next generation.

That’s great boatbum.
I use to try and do the same thing when I had my boat on the river.
There was a little boy about ¼ mile from shore that would stand on his porch
and jump up down every time I went down river with his arm going up and
down for me to pull the cord for the whistle.
One day his mother brought him down to the boat. I let him clime all over the boat
And pull the whistle him self.
Great day for me and him.

What do I do? Beside spending a few hundred hours a year helping edit the Bulletin, dealing with administrative issues, writing articles when we can't get any submissions, answering questions from various sources, and helping with meets?

I'd love to have girls, the more the merrier. The only downside would be that we might have to be a bit more careful about the scratching...
