On This Day In History…

AO: Rubicon

When: 11/15/2022

QIC: No-See-Um

PAX (8): Avis, False Start, Jump Seat, lumbergh, MillerTime, Special K, Turbine


Well, nothing like a beatdown on a 40 degree, 90% chance of rain gloom to really test the pax’s mettle. As one can see from the photo above, the Sky Q was looking out for the Rubicon (and maybe even our friends at The Norseman)…..at least for the first 5 minutes or so.


8 pax gathered and once YHC & MT got the blue tooth speaker issue figured out, disclaimer was given and no time to waste.



Mosey through the front entrance of Wills Park directly to the FOD to see what kind of shape it would be in. Construction has already started on re-surfacing our lovely turf field so only a little warm-up in the outfield.

Imperial Walkers, SSH, Mtn. Climbers, Plank Jacks, Weed Pickers, Arm Circles, Covids.


Rain starting to pick-up a bit so off to Herpes Pavillion we go…
