AO: Windjammer

When: 04/30/2021

QIC: Walkie Talkie

PAX (11): @Flo @FalseStart @Stu, @Townie @Nomad @Zohan @MilliVanilli @Brutus @StiffArm @Hanson @WalkieTalkie


Windjammers got after it on the last day of April…an 11PAX of @Flo @FalseStart @Stu
@Townie @Nomad @Zohan @MilliVanilli @Brutus @StiffArm @Hanson & @WalkieTalkie
headed out into the slightly brighter gloom for an April 30 th 2021 Beatdown.


Q showed some grace to two late arrivers but @Zohan said, “Let’s Roll”. Mosey to the lake
for some Side Straddle Hops, Hillbillies, Weed Pickers & COVIDs. Lots of NFL Draft chatter
to & from…Townie was clearly upset that Brutus’s Eagles stole a WR from Giants.

The Thang:

DJ Jazzy Walkie Talkie had prepared a sick 8-song playlist that looked a little something
like this…
Otherside – Merkins & run in two teams
Fight For Your Right – Squats & run
Good Life – LBCs & run
Final Countdown- Curls w/coupon & run (no, not done yet)
Whatever It Takes- Group Lunges & Burpees on “Whatever it Takes”
We Are Young – Skull Crushers w/coupon & run
Glory Days – Flutter Kicks & run
I’m Still Standing – Group SSH & Burpees on “I’m Still Standing”
@Brutus complimented the Q’s diverse selection of music. @MilliVanilli poked fun of one
song but who are we kidding…his first concert were two guys that don’t even friggin’ sing. 
Thanks to @Flo for some blackmail material from @Cookie’s middle/high school days.
Mosey back to the flag for some Mary selected by the pax. Great work, Gents.


Prayers for Hanson’s move and job search….that Nomad’s family can get some additional
sleep and naps around their newborn’s schedule…that StiffArm’s wife’s pregnancy
continues to be smooth…for False Start, Dr Rico & Cookie’s weekend travel adventures
Reminders of upcoming Blood Drive and Convergence beatdown on 5/8 at 6:30am at
Roswell’s Riverside Park.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Thanks to False Start for the coffee & to Townie for the Truth nugget and book
recommendation…It Takes What It Takes: How to Think Neutrally & Gain Control of Your Life
by Trevor Moawad. In the words of Trevor & Townie, “The next time life presents you with a

challenge, don’t simply assume everything will work out. Don’t tell yourself you can’t do it. Just
evaluate the situation. Figure out what you can accomplish right now. Then draw your line.
When you cross that line, draw another one. And keep going there”.
In the words of Imagine Dragons…”Whatever it takes. Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins. I
do whatever it takes. Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains. Whatever it takes. Yeah,
take me to the top I’m ready for Whatever it takes. Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins, I do
what it takes!”
