    Sign me up. I got my first letter from AARP sometime in my late 50's, my wife who is a couple of months older than me got a lot of heckling mileage out of that letter. Then one day I found a letter from AARP addressed to her in the recycle bin. Of course I didn't tease her about trying to hide it. :rollno: Oh sure, of course I didn't. :p:p:p

    Your title threw me off. I thought this was a thread for AARP employees. Currently I'm doing tech support for AARP. LOL.

    This is too funny. I'm 57 and have been qualified for several years. I still feel like a kid. Still gigging, still buying new equipment. teaching and all that. Maybe we should start a new club :)

  11. 60 and a AMAC member, much better than the AARP clowns.
    Great thing is, I am playing out now more than ever.

    I joined the day I was eligible. Saved $15 on a hotel room that very weekend. Take full advantage, friends.

    I turned 50 in NOv and already started receiving AARP mailings, which I don't mind. What I hate though is I am starting to receive mailings form the "Scooter store"

    I've been an AARP member for the last 15 years. Nobody should make light of us old guys because you will be there sooner than you think.

    I'll be 65 in August and I'm still gigging with two bands. I'm still buying more gear when I should know better, only now it's on my bucket list. If you start a club, count me in.

    Proud to say I have lived to 58 and still shaking and baking. Playing more, have more gear AND fishing more than ever than when I was younger. Life is good. Like phillybass101 and hsech mentioned above, if there is a club for the "over 50" bunch, count me in too.

    AARP has been after me for several years now. I haven't really seen the advantage as of yet to joining them. No offense to those who are members of AARP.

    This is great. I'm too immature and not responsible enought to start a club LOL!!!!! If someone else wants to I'm down for joining. In the past three years or so I have spent close to 6k on new equipment and still have to get one more piece (cab) before I settle down. I have gigs coming up on the 11th and 16th of May playing everything from old doo wop to modern slap songs. having a ball as we take frequent breaks, and no one is trying to outplay each other or even cares to. Giving a slap bass clinic in June. Music Life is good.
