Thang: Snowflake Challenge, two teams named after Black Cat, Team Bravo and Team Charlie.  Team Bravo and Charlie consisted of 4 PAX each.  Each PAX on each team completed the following:

Tractor Tire Flips x 5

3 Semi Tire jumps with merkins at each tire x 3.  3 semi tires are lined up next to each other in a straight line.  First pax jumps to the right into the first tire, then jumps backwards out of the tire, then pax does a merkin on the tire, after merkin  jumps back into first tire and then jumps right into the 2nd tire, repeats through 2nd and 3rd tire.  Rinse and repeat x 3.  Looking to coin the exercise “The three amigos,” however they don’t feel very friendly.

Pull ups x 5

Maestro lap 

Rinse and repeat, Flips, 3 amigos, Pullups, and Maestro Lap.

Challenge to be decided on by either reaching the start/ finish line, or team that has completed assigned exercise while flipping the tractor tire the farthest around the maestro lap by the set time of 6:10 am.

Team Bravo was victorious, Team Charlie is now known as Team Snowflake.

Moleskin: Nothing better than some friendly competition to get the blood flowing in the gloom.  Team Snowflake, while consisting of a group of men that are all special and unique, did lose to team Bravo, no names need to be mentioned.  8 PAX participated in a coffeeteria at the Downtown Diner, no 10-29’s were reported.  Conversation was good, we learned more about Bambi’s “work” injury.  We are all hoping for his speedy recovery.  A special shoutout to Esserman’s Tire in Frankfort, they have been very kind in providing BlackCat with our Tractor and Semi tires, I know many of you already do business with Esserman, for those of you that don’t please give them a look when you’re in need of new tires.  Hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Be safe, hope to see you in the gloom on Friday.
