Hitting the Pavement at Asgard

  • The PAX: Woodshed, Big Bird, Recall, Drumstick, Sasquatch, Roddy, Feud

7-ish (Drumstick joining us after work and arriving just in time for our last four exercises- with the last two being memorable- hehe) HIM of Fleming Island posting in the overcast gloom of Florida.  YHC glad to be back after missing last Saturday due to his local mission trip with the youth of his church.  After getting back after it this past week, he saw an open Q-slot so he grabbed.  He had challenged the pax to have a 12-pax beatdown before Asgard’s anniversary.  The closest we have come to this point was 9 with 2 EA’s.  So YHC thought, maybe we need to do a little advertising…

The Naked Mole Skin

  • Pax did get attention from those at iHop and a two guys in a truck passing by; truck stopped to talk and inquire more about who we were and what we were doing- YHC failed to bring along business cards for such instances.
  • Pax questioned the strategy of using monkey humpers and pickle pounders as a marketing tool

BOM/COT

YHC wished everyone a Happy Father’s Day and reiterated that taking care of ourselves, through the things we do in F3, will make us better fathers.  He also admitted that he knew nothing of Juneteenth until last year.  After researching the holiday, he found it to be one that is worthy to note.  The end to slavery is good thing to celebrate.  He added that while there is still some progress to be made in race relations, there has been significant progress that shouldn’t be overlooked or looked down upon because it “wasn’t enough”.  We should continue to strive towards perfection, however, understand nothing will ever be perfect- but that should not stop us from continually climb the mountain.  Learning from our past, instead of erasing our past (no matter how bad the past was), will make us stronger.

  • July 5th Convergence at Mickler’s Landing
  • Asgard 1-Year Anniversary- July 10th – Continue EH’ing
