I wanted to vote 18+, and I'm only 17. lol.
I like 16, but unfortunately, some boys and girls are not mature enough even at this age.
Honestly look at the pros and cons of being 16:
-I can join the 405th two years early
-I will be able to drive (in most states)
-Any group I am affiliated with will be held accountable for my actions.
-I am not legally an adult, so therefore cannot travel without adult consent.
-16 year olds cannot rent hotel rooms (for stay at conventions), once again, only an adult (18yrs. old +) can do this.
-At 16 years old, I'm more prone to prove that I am cooler than the star wars nerds (sorry Fitzs). Meaning that I might not be mature enough to turn my cheek to confontation.
I mean, there's good and bad. I voted 16 to keep the masses happy.
I personally have no problem waiting till I'm 18 to join. The more time, the merrier. :mrgreen: My elite costume will look awesome if I have a whole year to complete it and that sorta thing.
;-) Just my two cents.
