  • QIC: Gizzard and Gravy
  • The PAX: Saigon Sam (R), Terminator, Full Monty (R), Wasted, G.I. Joe, Dollar Bill, Sofa, Shirley (R), Twig, Bloomer, GNC, TAPS (FNG Welcome)

It was a beautiful day at Hard Nocs, filled with humidity and mumblechatter. 14 PAX in total, including an FNG showed up to get better. The theme of the day: Life happens to us all, we must be prepared to fight the good fight. One way to do that, is to stay healthy. In that vein, a legally beautiful disclaimer was given and we were off.
