Montani Semper Liberi

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Backblasts

21 PAX including 1 FNG arrived at ANTHILL in the gloom for a little history lesson. Being a proud native of West “by God” Virginia, YHC thought it would be a good time to provide a few little facts and trivia about the Mountain State. Afterall, it was 156 years ago today that West Virginia […]

18 PAX including two FNGs arrived early to ANTHILL for the school of gloom for this beatdown. YHC embraces his geekdom (which no one in the PAX seemed to have disputed) and talked about how his 2.0’s do the same.

The smoke cleared briefly and 19 PAX appeared in the gloom for this morning’s beat-down. YHC brought the geekdom down on the PAX as he did not feel that the greatest sci-fi holiday of the year was well appreciated last week (May the 4th for those not in the know). So in order to educate […]

A Heavy Trip Down Memory Lane

On the official 2nd anniversary of F3 Jacksonville, 11 pax dug out their neglected rucksacks from dusty closet corners and set out on a trip down memory lane.  YHC had originally contemplated simply duplicating the Big Bang beatdown from Launch Day 2015 as a baseline test, but we are not the same men we were […]

The Thang- Mosey to the basketball court to warm-up […]
