    Simply put, I love you guys for everything you do. But one things which I truly appreciate above all others, is the fact that you guys provide a home for all geeks because society doesn’t always accept us. Not to mention the epic competitions you guys run. All I can say is thank you! Stay strong and may the force be with you!
