No more TEXASMAC !!!

Well the TexasMac is now History!

I decided not to put out the efforts to put another one together, maybe it will return on the 20th anniversary?

If it continues this year or at all it will be put on by someone else and be just called the Tmac.

 I would like to at least reserve the name TexasMac for the last 13 years of events I put on for my own selfish reasons. 

I hate for this to die, but I just don't have it in me this year.

Thanks again to everyone who ever helped in any way on past events and for every attendee!

Thank you!

I myself wouldn't call it selfish. On the contrary, I have always felt it extremely honorable on your behalf to celebrate your friendship in such a generous manner; making sure everyone is looked after and doing your utmost to ensure no-one meets the same tragic fate during the event.

I hereby celebrate your altruism Kevin!

Hip hip...

I've never been able to make it. There has always been some sort of conflict in schedule, but I'm still sad to see it end.

So you have time to come over to the Netherlands?

 

As a one-timer, I'm glad I had to opportunity to attend.

While the event series ends, I will never forget what TexasMacThe Man meant for you.

Even though the name will change, we won't forget. I suggest that we all make it practice to slip in the clutch and give a V4 salute as we pass the cross site.

This event has fostered so many friendships and memories for so many of us. What a legacy. Thank you Kevin.

I echo that.  All that work has led to a lot of people having a lot of fun in honor of your friend, TEXASMAC

I've been trying to go the last few years, but there has always been a conflict. Tail of the Dragon is definitely on my bucket list and this would have been a great opportunity. I selfishly hate to see this end.... However, I applaud you keeping this going as long as you have.

Thanks for everything BR. You and HS did a fabulous job every year. There's been a lot of pitching-in by others also. They all deserve a thank you also.  

T-Mac was the most fun I had every time I went. The combination of great machinery, great roads and Fabulous Friendships scores a Hat Trick, Grand Slam, Trifecta, you name it.
