5 PrePre, 9 Pre Runners, 13 PAX with 10 for coffeeteria… this Friday Grindstone thang is moving along quite well!


Sustained acceleration is a tricky thing.  Like chiseling a stone, you can’t strike too soft nor can you strike too hard.  Consistent strikes at the proper strength will get you what you’re looking for.

Just ask HAL (FNG) and Bill Dance (RNG) who were 3 for 3 on this week’s BD’s.  Or ask Inseam and Spit-Valve who are on their quest to chisel 6 days this week.

Today is 5 out of 6 for them, FNG’s were inbound so YHC had to bring the right mix to the Stone.
