Committees be damned!

AO: Windjammer

When: 10/12/2022

QIC: False Start

PAX (7): False Start, Funyun, Maytag AI, NRA, Walkie Talkie, Zohan, Plumb Bob


A Q by Committee was announced the night before, but as we moseyed to the dam, Zohan reminded me of Clause 17.5.3 Verse a of the Windjammer Charter (we have a WJ Charter?!?!?) that this is not a democracy and that Qs by Committee shouldn’t be allowed.  A chance to be a dictator again?!?!?  I saw the opportunity and grabbed it!  Here we go.


On the dam we did the following:

  • SSH
  • Hillbilly
  • Weedpicker
  • Arm Circles OYO (forward & backward)
  • COVIDs

Mosey to the boat launch.

The Thang:

We had a WJ newbie, so we showed him around our country club.

The Thang #1

Merkin Mile up to Clubhouse

  • 10 Merkins at each intersection on the way up
  • 10 Squats at each intersection on the way down

We stopped in the middle to pick up the 6 and try and keep the group together since we were so small today.

The Thang #2

We have a wall…and most PAX know what that means at the Windjammer, but I decided to throw them for a loop and introduce the Dirty Hookup.  NRA had flashbacks to college…but we cut him off before he could go into the details.  Partner up.

  • 1st PAX completes 10 Dirty Hookups against the way
  • 2nd PAX completes Flutter Kicks AMRAP

Flapjack 3 times

The Thang #3

Mosey over to the pavilion with the same partners.

  • 1st PAX completes 10 Step UPs (AC)
  • 2nd PAX completes Dips AMRAP

Flapjack 3 times

The Thang #4

Mosey over to the playground. 1 Team does 10 Pullups while the other teams high plank.  1 rotation through each team.

We had 4 minutes left, and we hadn’t visited our most coveted location of the Windjammer, so we decided to show Plumb Bob the dam.  Bernie Sanders up it once and then mosey to the flag.  Time!


Lots of announcements today:

  • Convergence on 10/29
  • Beer Ruck on 11/13 (more to come, just pencil this in for right now)
  • Blood Drive 11/23
  • Santa Ruck 12/10

It’s busy in the Alpha!

Prayers for Plumb Bob’s 2.0 as he battles sickness.

4 PAX (Cookie, Maytag, False Start…and some guy named Brian?!?) headed over to Starbucks for a Coffeeteria Convergence.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

I had no plans to Q today, but was easy to find a way to keep the group together and push the PAX a bit. Thanks for following and allowing me to step up, men.
