I don’t Q enough.  This one has been tossing around in my mind for weeks…but I know I had to do it and I knew my brothers would support me.

Super glad that a nice squad of 14 came out in the cold to join in on the fun and excitement.


Circle up and mosey to the middle lower lot for some warm ups of…

  • Moroccan night clubs
  • SSH
  • Willie mays hays
  • Weed pickers
  • Sun gods….either I didn’t remember what these were correctly or we did them wrong…in any case we moved and warmed up.

The Thang:

Team competition….with disguised learning about leadership.


  • Broke into teams of 3
  • Its all about your team and competing your best against the others
  • 1 point for each winning team in each exercise….coffee or beer on me for the team with the most points at the end of the BD
  • LOTS of mumble chatter so many missed the fine print of points, I will be intentionally moving fast and not repeat instructions….the leaders within the groups would figure this out quickly and lead their teams….see what I did there?
  • Each team tracks their wins and competes on the honesty/integrity of the team


Team Challenges:

  • Mosey up hill for each team to pick their favorite coupon from the pile
  • move to middle parking lot
  • #1 Dora (100 of each, curls, skull crushers and press ups ) while the 2 others ran to the end of the parking lot and back….and a 10 merkin toll at the turn
  • #2 sitting back to back in a circle of 3, pass the coupon in one direction 15 times
  • #3 Bear crawls Indian race style
  • rest break…..10 Wolverines
  • #4 Coupon relay – run halfway down parking lot with coupon, coupon needs to make 4 round trips…no guidance as to how needs to carry the coupon…team figures that out on their own
  • #5 Partner Carry….Down and back…each person needs to be carried once
  • #6 Back to back again…pass coupon the opposite direction as you did in #2
  • #7 standard sprint relay…each person runs to end of parking lot and back once
  • Mosey to flag
  • @snowman led us in…you guessed it….American hammers!!!

    • Snowman shared a terrible story of 2 college kids that were tragically killed (Wayne and Blanch?) and to keep their family and friend in mind this week.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

As usual, I didn’t want to put myself out there but my brothers pushing me made me a better man today.

One of my side passions is coaching individuals (career/personal growth/life decisions).  I help people get unstuck and help challenge them to action.  I don’t talk about it much because I don’t want to “take advantage” of any F3 relationships.  I sometimes partner with Frank Schwartz (Dark Helmet) and coach groups of men.  Ask me more if you want.


Today’s BD let me weave in some of this and a BD.  It was really an honor to have you allow me to share and lead.
