I had an excellent time at Chico Hot Springs. The mountains, the clear night skies, the meals and lodge (with hot springs pool) were fabulous. The students were always engaged and brought in much strong work and the quality of discussions was very high. New friendships were forged. I think everyone got a lot out of being at Chico.
