Got Labor Day 2018 weekend off on the right foot with a strong group of 23 pax. Awoke to a thick, humid late summer morning and Q-drenaline got YHC to the AO early. Erected a shovel flag as I know that my friend the Site Q, Smithers, is on IR. Heal up brother. We’ve got this one covered.
Had put out a blast into the Twitterverse that this would not be so moderate. Once Hootie rolled in with his usual 1 minute to spare, the Disclaiming began. With such a large group and many newer faces, the full-on disclaimer was explained. Then:
Mosey in front of Empire Pizza with High Knees, Butt Kicking and Toy Soldiers.

MOSEY back to the rear entrance to Chick Fil A for the:
LADDER -RUN BACKWARDS UP THE HILL, 7s, MERKINS AT TOP, BOMBJACKS AT BOTTOM. 10 Counts by destiny. ROUND 2-SQUATS AT TOP, LBCs AT BOTTOM. It’s not easy to find an incline near this AO, but the running backwards up the driveway presented enough resistance. Real crowdpleaser.
THOUGHT ON PRESENCE: WHAT DISTRACTS YOU FROM BEING PRESENT? THE PAST OR THE FUTURE?
MOSEY to side of Persis Restaurant and grab some wall. People’s Chair for 3 10 counts. BTTW for a 10 count.
To the grass circle in front of Persis for AMERICAN HAMMERS and my personal favorite, JACK WEBB.
THOUGHT ON PRESENCE: HENRY FORD SAID ”HISTORY IS MORE OR LESS BUNK. IT’S TRADITION. WE DON’T WANT TRADITION. WE WANT TO LIVE IN THE PRESENT AND THE ONLY HISTORY THAT’S WORTH A TINKER’S DAMN IS THE HISTORY WE MAKE TODAY”. Loved this quote.
Mosey to COT. Announcements- Q School @Golden Corral in September, The Fort 6th Anniversary Invergence, September of 1000 Burpees. Prayers for our schools, Praise for Beacon for organizing The Fort Prays for FMSD.
Always a pleasure to lead and fun to meet some of the newer guys. Great interaction between some vets and newbies today. Of course, Twister’s constant stream of mumbl and chatter always keeps things lively. Thanks to Smithers for the nod.
