Independent Sungods, started off small, then went bigger.

The Thang:

The Thang is called the “Cones of Dunshire!”  Five stations were setup in a cone shape on the football/soccer field.  The PAX counted off in 5’s and went to each corresponding station.  A board with 20 exercises was on display.  Exercises included:

  1. Burpees
  2. Diamond Merkins
  3. Arm Release Merkins
  4. Carolina Dry Docks
  5. Merkins
  6. American Hammers
  7. Hillbillies
  8. Imperial Walkers
  9. Monkey Humpers
  10. Lunges
  11. Cobra Squats
  12. Squats
  13. Side Strattle Hops
  14. Flutter Kicks
  15. Mountain Climbers
  16. Jay-Los
  17. Big Boy Sit Ups
  18. WWII Sit Ups
  19. LBC’s
  20. Your Choice

A twenty sided dice was on hand.  Each number on the dice corresponded to one of the 20 exercises on the board.

A four sided dice was also on hand.  Each number represented 10, 20, 30, or 40 reps, depending on what was rolled.

The group at station one would roll both dice in order to pick the exercise and reps.  Once completed the PAX would rotate to the next station. Each round consisted of 5 different exercises and reps at each of the 5 stations.

Oh yeah, and the PAX had to bear crawl between each station once the exercise was complete.

Once the PAX completed one round of all 5 stations, or full cone, they sprinted 50 yards downfield then Bernie Sanders back to the next station.

After the second round the PAX was granted mercy and would Bernie Sanders between stations.

After 4 rounds the PAX Mozied back to the flag.

The cool down consisted of some “manly” yoga, stretching hamstrings, deltoids, and calves.  It’s important to stretch!



Announcement included the Free to Bleed Blood Drive on Friday, March 26th 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.  Details listed in the Slack Channel.

Script Kiddie shared a Moment of Clarity with the PAX.  A ship’s direction is controlled by its rudder.  It’s only a small part of the ship, but it changes the entire course.  It does take some time to change direction, just like in our lives.  Making small changes in our lives can have a positive impact both our lives, and the lives of others.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

We had a coffeeteria, but for the life of me I cannot recall a single conversation we had.  It’s been that kind of day.  Anyways, we had a good chat and probably talked about something life changing that will forever affect our lives.
