ANNOUNCEMENT!

 

Regretfully, I must announce that the TwinsLAN Tailgate       Swapfest, originally scheduled for 6 June 2015, has been CANCELLED because a suitable location could not be found.  The customary site could no longer be used, and a substitute location with adequate size was not available.

Please communicate the cancellation to those you know who attend this event, in case they do not happen to see any of the places where this announcement will be posted.  At this point, nothing has been decided concerning next year's event.
