Who is the oldest mentor in FIRST???

This came to mind when I saw the replies to Jorge L. Molinari’s thread about older robotics hobbyists. So who is the oldest?? I’m sure I’m not but here goes… I’m 43.

(be honest… :slight_smile: )

I don’t work in age but I’m prime baby boomer and was born in 1947. To zero it in, I’ve had my birthday this year.

Our team (#379, Robocats) has a jack-of-all trades and extremely knowledgable mentor named Emil. He’s been with us for 7 years and is a community member who volunteers his time (up to 25+ hours a week). Our team celebrated his 80th birthday with him and his wife in Florida in 2001!
