Whiskerino 2009


will not fail Whiskerino.

I wanted to thank @mackle, and everyone here for making this whole thing possible.

Before this final chapter started, I had been watching the site for months, looking for information on when it was going to begin.

I'll never forget on November 1st 2009 when I wanted to sign up for this year's whiskerino but I was on the other side of Michigan, and all I had was my blackberry and it was going to be a pain in the ass to do sign up that way. I figured that I could probably just wait until I got home to sign up, with no problem. I drove home, shaved clean for the first time in a long time, took a picture and tried to sign up, only to find out that registrations had closed. I seriously almost cried. Thankfully an email to @mackle secured my spot, and here I am now.

I'm not really an online posting guy; I've always been more of a lurker, but if there's one regret I have it's that I didn't participate more in discussion and comments on this site.
