Hey, I'm one of those 40 somethings and proud of it. Actually it was quite
a lot of work and was very strenuous and the above statement really is
true. Although I'll have to admit that doing CPR can be just as breath
taking a diving for a lost bather. Our council actually has 3 Aquatic
instructors that are over 40 and we'll all be at Jamboree although I won't
be in Aquatics. I'm too low on the totem pole.
