So this is it. The end has come.

This event has been so amazing, it is hard to describe. We have fought against the clean-shaven majority, pressures from work, and The Itch and we have won.

I failed in my attempt to ramp up my commenting in the last month, but juggling work and school and a personal life is difficult, so unfortunately something had to be compromised. I just wish it didn't have to be this.

I've learned so much about photography, design, and friendship that I will never forget. Thank you everyone for bringing so much excellent work to the table. I've been inspired so much during these last 4 months.

I would like to thank @beardwinner for sticking it out as long as he could. He's a great friend, and it's been a real pleasure growing and showing with him.

I'm sure @mackle will be overloaded with thanks today, but without him, this community would be but a shadow of itself. Thanks.

And to everyone I couldn't or didn't get a chance to comment on, or talk to, or meet because of whatever factor, I wish you all the best. It's the community that makes this all worthwhile.

I'm really going to miss all of you. My email is kyle [dot] yaschuk [at] gmail [dot] com, so don't hesitate to say hello if you're going to be in the Calgary, Alberta area.

Thank you all so very very much. See you in May!

yes, this one goes out - not only to you, @benfrank - but also to @mattyc, but you can't see @beardwinner's stripes on account of my ISO forgetfulness.

Team Canada represent! You are among the few users that make me extremely proud to call Whiskerino an international event. Granted, you're not that far away but it shows that the comradery and social gathering we do here extends to all men, not just weird Americans.

Thanks for growing and showing with us.. much appreciated. Godspeed and Good Luck to you!!
