    Hey John, it's great that you still love banding at 70. I'm not suggesting that 70 is very old btw :wink: Tell me, how long have you been in banding? Is it something you've been involved with all your life? Have you ever taken a break from it etc? It would also be interesting to know who has the most years served to the movement.
