A new JAX record of 40 PAX and 2.0s gathered in the gloom at ANCHOR for the first ever 2.0 day.  For several of the 2.0s the excitement had been building for 2 months and came close to matching that of a Christmas morning.  The PAX created a rotating Q to give the regulars a chance to lead with their 2.0s.

Naked Man Moleskin:

  • Mumblechatter heard during the first 2.0 day- “Best day yet” “First 2.0 day was an outstanding success” “When can I come again?” “Dad, I know why you stink now” “Dad you stink” “F3 is really fun” “It’s my seatbelt- the seatbelt absorbs the sweat and that’s what stinks”
  • Observation: 2.0s are much better at animal movements than adults
  • Great morning to show the 2.0s what F3 is all about and teach them a little about all 3 Fs
