AO: Bushwood

When: 06/02/2023

QIC: Dinghy

PAX (9): BallBoy, Flo, Maguire, Meatball, Pigtails, Popper (Dan Richard), Sunshine, Wolverine


Week 2 of Bushwood, and YHC was doing his penance for needing Popper’s assistance as a substi-Q for Wednesday at the Hooch. As such, needed to come up with something new, and from that perspective – Mission accomplished. That said, as I was cautioned once: If you can’t do it, don’t Q it. Hence the need for the “modify as necessary” admonition during the disclaimer. Many used that this morning…..


10 each of the following exercises:

Pre-K (touching head-shoulders-knees-toes in cadence)


Moroccan Nightclubs

Michael Phelps (was needed)


Short 1/3 mile mosey

Naked-Man Moleskin:

As always, what a great morning to lead. Whilst YHC and several other PAX were a little lightheaded, it certainly was great to get pushed while leading. Thank for the trust to lead the group!
