A Storm is Coming

AO: Big Creek

When: 10/24/2019

QIC: Inseam

PAX (10): McDuff, Dumpster, Spit Valve, Sculley, Mr. Hand, Swiper, Olaf, Bartman, Snake, and Inseam


Last week, the Pax of Big Creek, led by Swiper, took a little field trip down to Halcyon. The response was overwhelmingly positive. Thus, The Storm was born. Today is a story of the soft launch.


We set off from the Eye of the Storm in a moderate paced mosey through the Village and around the back side of the parking deck. There were circled up on the second floor and completed the following:

  • SSH – 16 IC
  • Windmill – 10 IC
  • Toy Soldiers – 10 IC
  • Son Gods – OYO
  • Michael Phelps – OYO

The Thang:

A promise of poker and general tomfoolery was made on slack the night prior. We started with the tomfoolery.

Thang 1:

The PAX performed a Railroad routine down the second story of the parking deck and up to the third. Planking on each each line, while the last Pax jumped over each planking Pax, then joined in on the end.

Then down the third story and up to the fourth we switch to Reverse-Railroad-Shuffle-Pushdowns. Pax would hold 6 inches on each line, while the advancing Pax shuffled to the end, pushing down the feet of each Pax on his way.

Thang 2:

Let the games begin. I’ll spare you all the chaos of the first 2 rounds. What YHC had on paper vs. what actually made sense were not the same. Nevertheless, Sculley and others were there with perfectly timed suggestions.

Divide into two teams. Team 1 sends a player up to the Deck of Death. Flips the first card (this will be the number of reps). Then Team 2 called out “higher” or “lower” before the second card is flipped revealing the exercise. If Team 2 correctly guess high/low, then they won that round, and visa versa. We would flip the dealing team and calling team each round. Both teams would perform the exercise, then the losing team would run down and back up 4 stories of stairs while the winning team got to run flat land (to the end and back).

This continued until time. Team 2 dominated, but Team 1 made many new friends, in each stair.


Mosey back down the parking deck toward the Eye. 6:15 on the dot, no time for Mary today Gents.

Pray for the success of the new AO, ability to reach sadclowns in the area, give thanks for getting us this far, give thanks for waking up and getting stronger.

Stay tuned. The Storm is set to officially launch next Thursday, 10/31/2019.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Solid work from each HIM this morning. I’m thankful to be apart of a group that continues to push me each morning.

Huge props to Swiper, and all involved with getting this new AO up and running. There is huge potential here, as Halcyon continues to develop and expand.

Keep an eye out on twitter and slack for more details in the coming days, but plan to come on out next week for our hard launch! Let’s let them know F3 Alpha has arrived!
