Oxford’s dictionary defines hubris as “excessive pride or self-confidence”. Thus was the lesson YHC learned when indicating that today’s BD would be memorable. It all started with a little bit of the good banter that is well-appreciated (whether on Slack or in the middle of a beatdown). Evidently, YHC’s VQ for Meathouse wasn’t remembered – ouch – so now was the opportunity to make some memories. However, despite significant preparation, a key element to any beatdown at the Meathouse was missing from the Q’s own person: His Ruck! Thus, tail between his legs, YHC had to sheepishly proceed through the beatdown, no ruck. However, as always, the show went on…..

Pax are invited to reach out to Dipstick to serve as the Johns Creek Q for the upcoming blood drive in July. Please consider this as an opportunity to lead.
Date for the next Q and BBQ at The Bound is forthcoming. Will be late July, but an opportunity to serve.
Prayers for travel mercies for PAX/families on vacation or business; also, prayers for Popper’s co-worker who is potentially at going to need new employment.
Today’s less in humility was another reason to be grateful to lead. It was a memorable BD, all right, but less so for the physical than for the mental test. Thank you all again for the privilege of leading and the patience!
