Thank you to all of our supporters at the recent Western District Annual Meeting in Santa Barbara, CA! We kicked off the meeting on Saturday afternoon with 10 student and 7 family/friends teams competing in the next installment of the MiteY Race. Teams started the race at the Fess Parker Doubletree Hotel, made their way along the Santa Barbara waterfront to Stearns Wharf, then returned to the Chromatic Gate sculpture near the hotel to cross the finish line.
