"My son came back from the strategy-games club that you all have in palo alto and he has NOT stopped talking about it. He has been making charts and graphs and trying to teach us some game they studied in class today. I haven't seen him this excited to something in a long time so I wanted to give kudos to this hidden gem club and the great coach that explained it all to us today. It seems like a fantastic experience and he even wanted to stay for chess as well which he was against trying this morning. Cant wait for next weekend. "  Sebastion C.
