Our team had fun, learned tons and will return stronger:) Our parents & families were impressed with the activities/event and now have tasted the special FIRST “Kool~Aid.”
Dale (and everyone),
We all appreciate the gracious professionalism displayed by all the teams
as we worked through the last-minute security issues in the out-buildings.
We are very thankful for the commitment and generosity displayed by the
USPTO as well. If anyone on the list has an opportunity - please send a
note of thanks to whatever organization hosted your tournament!
These venues are key to our ability to provide this program in your
communities at a reasonable price - so seriously - send a not to the
superintendent or any appropriate leader in the organization to let them
know what this means to you and your children.
