BLIMPS with 11s on the Mound

AO: Dawson

When: 07/24/2021

QIC: Script kiddie

PAX (4): Script kiddie, Trojan, Crumpet, Murdock(FNG)


The day before the BD I was concerned that there may be a party of one for the morning, but Sprocket, Inseam and Boomer reminded me that the AO will take time to grow it takes patience/perseverance, so with that encouragement and an HC from Trojan and SC from crumpet, I was excited for the BD.

I got there at 630 for finalizing the plan and getting a pre ruck in. Trojan got there then the FNG, and crumpet showed up soon after, the numbers were set and we chatted, for a few, then the call to mosey was heard and the BD was begun.

We finished strong and together

Time for 11s on the mound
I decided to be a bit nice and only do V-ups, with no Y-ups, so 10 V-ups at the bottom of the hill, at the top, time to pay the toll, 3 Mickey Mouse merkins were the cost (wide merkin, then diamond merkin, then wide merkin WDW=Walt Disney World so Mickey Mouse merkins) on the other side 1 Reverse lunge(Alpha count), back up the hill and another 3 Mickey Mouse merkins,
We kept going till the last round at that point we waited for everyone to get to the last round and we completed the last V-up, got to the top of the hill, changed to 3 merkins then the 10 Reverse lunges, together, one last round of merkins at the top then time for Mary

Crumpet called out dying cockroaches
Trojan finished it off with 20 American hammers.
At that point it was right at 8AM and timefor the CoT


Head count was 4

Time for Nameorama

No 6th man but we had an FNG to name

Prayer request

FNG(Murdock) ask for wisdom/pray with job situations

Time to Name the FNG, found he worked at hospital tied to mental health, and was a foodie, Crumpet came up with the idea to call him Murdock, from the ATeam, and I think it worked well, great name.

Then Ball of men and prayer to end the beatdown

We talked a bit about sports then decided to stroll on over to tbe picnic tables for coffee time

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Took the pic and then hung out a bit then we one by one had to head out

Murdock was headed to a mud run with his kids

Crumpet was headed to another workout, props to him for sure

Trojan and I hung out a bit longer then it was time to go.

Another challenging but fun BD in the books and greatful for Trojan, Crumpet, and Murdock for helping me start the day right, this AO is a work in progress but with HIM like the ones here and all across the Alpha region encouraging me, it will become something great.
