Congrats to all! It really felt like a team effort with many new volunteers contributing to everything from the registration table to Learn to Play.

Also, a personal thank you to Derek Chow (DCStyles) who made my niece's day teaching her Star Wars X-wing.

I was nearby during part of that game. She looked REALLY into it. She was asking a lot of questions and Derek was all in with the answers. Derek is a great ambassador for X-Wing.
