A new section entitled “Period Pieces” has been added to the History section. The first article in this series is a piece written by founding member Frank Mason. More will be added as they are uncovered from the archives. Another new page, “Video Vault” has been created to display video and film footage of TCMG-related content.
Other pages recently updated include the 1957 Conclave, Early Photos and member pages for Bunker Hill (new photos) Ron Simon, Gene Wescott and Robert & Pamela Stephenson. Also the pages for our new members noted above.
As always we are seeking photos for the Members Gallery showing you and your TC. We also welcome member biographies so your fellow TCMG’ers can learn a bit about you, your history with your TC or anything else you care to write about. Historic photos and stories are also being sought to expand our TCMG History section on the site. Please send what you have to Steve Simmons. (use the “Contact US” link above)
