On a bright, beautiful Saturday morning we gathered in Brooke Street Park for our annual Alpha Region Convergence with F3, FIA, and all of our 2.0s. By 7:00 am when YHC rolled up the ruckers were out and about in Alpharetta and the runners were trotting back into the quad where we all gathered to start out.
After a short introduction from YHC outlining how this was supposed to go down, Rapid and Dreamer led us in a Warm-up before we dispersed to the various stations and waiting Qs.
Station 1: Nacho and Queso’s Deck of Death
Four cones were arranged around the loop of the quad every quarter section.
Pick a card, do the # of reps shown on the card, mosey to the next cone, and repeat.
Hearts = Side Straddle Hops, Diamonds = Dollys, Spades = Squats, and Clubs = Mountain Climbers
If a Queen was picked, girls did 5 burpees and guys planked.
If a King was picked, guys did 10 burpees and girls planked.
If an Ace was picked, it was wild and Pax do 5 of each exercise: SSHs, Dollys, Squats, and Mountain Climbers.

After all Pax rotated through all three stations, we gathered back in the quad for name-o-rama. Pax stayed in their groups from the stations to help move the naming along before we circled up for the final count-off as a group.
After the count-off, Rapid and Dreamer led us in a Circle of Trust with a reading from Romans. They used the passage to describe how each of us has different gifts that we can use to help each other out and create a stronger community.
Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped to make this Convergence happen. Thank you to the Qs, thank you to the Pax who brought food and coffee, thank you to Ha-Ha and Cox for taking pictures and recording everything, and thank you to Speedo for organizing everyone behind the scenes to make this happen.
