Vacation in the Shadows

I think most of us as a fandom have been feeling it coming for the past couple of years, and that the O-ring has been destined to be retired. Last year it seemed like the Club had thrown a bit of a curve ball to us, indicating we were going to potentially see the Red Shadows, only to end up with a modernized Crimson Strike Team in the 25th Anniversary format. Well, we pretty much got confirmation at the 2010 Convention that the days of the O-ring are numbered, and if that is the case, I think we got a pretty damn nice swan song.
