Moleskin – Beater was going to Q and kick our butts but sick family members needed his attention. He text me a general overview of what he was thinking. It looked like a bad choice with a great theme so we did it. Modifications with each of the attending PAX responsible for choosing an exercise. There was a lot of tension when Clubber was choosing what we were doing 50 of – he made a smart decision by splitting it up into 2 groups of 25. We welcomed Thumper to the group, driving all the way up from Greenwood.

Thank you men!

Captains can have as many people at the bottom or top of the hill as they want.
    • 5 points for winner

Moleskin

After a month plus build up we met on the field of battle to test our speed and strength. Q received more questions than he was expecting, creating games is challenging. Cannonball fire drew the most controversy. The most competitive people popped out of the group – it was fun to watch. We finished with Team Headlock scoring 67 points. Team Nomad scoring 47 points.

Q had to skip Tug of War and shorten the Fortification challenge. If/when there is a next time, I’ve thought of modifiers to get this done in time and speed up some of the games.

Thanks Men, that was fun. Keep EHing!

Moleskin – Motorboat used the ruck as a way to scout for ideas on his Q Thursday…maybe this is concerning. Tulip was excited to be out there and change his routine from needing to be at school at that time. We had a nice ruck and talked along the way.
