Did we just become best friends…

AO: Rubicon

When: 2024-05-09

QIC: Caffey

Well, the time had come and I had to get my final Rubicon Q on the books. Being a total dummy, I signed up for a Thursday after I will already be in TN full time but luckily Avis was accommodating and willing to give me his spot (thanks Avis!). As you might be able to guess, moving at the end of the school year, having recently lost an employee at work, having a wife who teaches, coaching baseball, having 2 kids in sports at the same time, and trying to find time for my M, has made life crazy. I don't know where my speaker is, I don't have materials for a fun Q, and I'm generally running around like a chicken with my head cut off. However, the men of Rubicon did what they do best, lead and encourage. After some good mumblechatter, I had 5 or 6 decent ideas for a BD and my new best friend, Lumbergh's, idea came through as the winner. Of course, YHC nailed a spot on disclaimer to start the thing and I thanked all the PAX for the great ideas.


We run over to the flag pole, doing some high knees and butt kickers along the way. Circle up around the flag for the following:
  • SSH
  • Weed pickers
  • Imperial walkers

The Thang:

I notified the PAX that we would be playing a game called "Have You Been Listening" where we will break up into two teams. I will read a question that is about me and something in my life I would have talked about during the last three years. The team that buzzes in first guesses. Get it right, 10 reps for your team, get it wrong (or if you're the non-guessing team and the guessing team got it right) and you have 25 reps of the exercise. I also added a bonus opportunity with questions based on Alpharetta "historical" items. If the team gets the first question right (or the non-guessing team if the other team got the first question wrong), they get to say whether they want the bonus. Get the bonus right, five additional reps for the other team, get it wrong 10 additional reps for your team. See below the questions and exercises.

    1. Burpees

Naked-Man Moleskin:

As I said in my Academy BB, thank you! This group is exactly what I needed at the exact right point in my life. Don't ever hesitate to try and EH that guy, because you never know just how much he might need a group like this. The workouts are awesome, but the fellowship is what really makes this group. Keep up the good work fellas. Rubicon forever (best AO in F3), and forever grateful to all of you. Also, thanks for the awesome gift. Caffey out!
