How many seasons/years have you considered yourself to be a "hobbyist"? From the spring of 2009 to the present would be one year, for example. From spring, 2008 to 2009 and the present would be 2 years. [I know, a slight discrepancy] I think this [poll] should be restricted to those with 6 colonies or less. I looked at all the other polls and could not find one related. Thanks.
