QIC arrived to put together dry erase board, which took the worst possible moment for it to break, requiring it to lean against the field fence.
PAX who arrived on time chatted about how cold the weather was, especially considering a few days ago it was warm enough to exercise outside in shorts. Temperature was approximate 38 degrees. Good natured ribbing was given to Script Kiddie, as he had been wearing shorts the last few beatdowns, but now succumbed to the weather and wore long sleeve shirts and pants.
Also, thanks were given to Suarez for swinging by the Firehouse storage unit and getting jump ropes and Dunshire for bringing a light for the dry erase board.
PAX moseyed to the normal warm up spot.
10 side straddle hops
10 weed pickers
10 sun gods
PAX were paired off into teams:
Lifelock/FNG (now named Pebble)
Each team member was responsible for the following exercises (one teammate could do the other’s responsibility in any category if they so chose):
150 Side-straddle Hops
100 Carolina Dry Docks
10 field sprints
100 WW2 sit ups
100 Leg Raises
100 Jumps with a jump rope
50 Imperial Walkers
No PAX finished the entire list in the 45 minutes allotted, but several PAX completed 7 or 8 of the list.
Prayers were given to those traveling for Spring Break next week and for Script Kiddie dealing with a tough financial transaction in the sale of a vehicle.
Normal prayers were offered for sad clowns everywhere, hoping they find what they need to get their life in order (whether that be F3 or not).
Buckeye volunteered to do MOC. He showed the PAX the proper way to tie a shoe. While most of us were concerned that he thought we were 5 years old, he brought up the point of basketball coach John Wooden teaching his players how to tie shoes, showcasing that even the small things make a big difference and should be taken seriously.
6th man went to Lifelock. PAX got to know Lifelock better as he talked about his primary passion, coding anything and everything. He also discussed his desire to be a cyber security specialist to protect the world from evil doers.
A naming ceremony for an FNG ensued. A friend of Lifelock and Lightweight, the young man is a videogamer, and son of a PAX we see from time to time, Asphalt. After discussion, Lifelock choose the name Pebble, since he is Asphalt’s son.
PAX celebrated another beatdown and new member by having coffee in the parking lot, though the young PAX (Lifelock and Pebble) chose to sit in their car to avoid the cold (and sadly avoid 2nd F).
There was discussion on Buckeye’s creativity and ability to select poignant (and sometimes obscure) concepts for MOC or beatdowns.
PAX Ace Ventura and Script Kiddie stuck around after coffee to do a post beatdown rucking session.
