    It is with a very heavy heart that I am announcing that the TCMS will be no more. humblegunner & I had a serious discussion about this several months ago and we both agreed it was time for it to end. The past several years I have dreaded planning this event, even though there isn't a lot to the planning as it has become a well oiled machine. It just doesn't seem the same anymore. We have a great 14 year run! I will definitely miss seeing all of you at this event. Know that I adore all of you....
