CHamps Jared and Rodolfo Baza

Congratulations to our 2016 Champions, Jared Abrojena and Rodolfo Baza!  Jared will go on to compete at the International TCC this summer in San Antonio, TX.  We missed our women’s division this year but will be rooting for our own Jamilee Kempton as she defends her world title in San Antonio.  Thank you to our judges, volunteers, and competitors for making the 2016 TCC an awesome weekend for everyone!
