3 thankful Pax descended upon 180 Belt Blvd. for the latest installment of Breaking Bread.  According to the loitering customers next door at Wendy’s, here’s how the evening went: Seymour and Malcolm arrived first to scout the AO.  Swirly would be proud – 40 minutes ahead of start time (ironically, start time for dinner actually is 5:30, only this event is “p.m.”).  UpChuck pulled in about 5:12.  Pax unloaded and set-up ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, King Hawaiian rolls, and cookies. What was the world like prior to Costco quantities?  Add to the food a quick set-up of plates, cutlery, etc.…

Thanksgiving Quiz Question 1: Where was the first Thanksgiving in America held? Answer: Virginia.  That’s easy.  As early as 1610.  9 years before some Massachusetts Pilgrims scraped up their new Plymouth by crashing into a rock on their way home from a baahhhh.

Answer: F3 RVA sponsors Breaking Bread one Sunday evening each month.  This month, it falls on Thanksgiving weekend. As of Tuesday, no one had signed…

Brothers! Lug Nut and I need your (yes YOUR) help. In one month, the Richmond Community Toolbank is hosting our annual fundraiser, Hammers & Ales. We need you, your Ms AND your friends to make this the success it deserves to be. Over the next month YHC will be spreading the Hammers & Ales good news to the popped collars of Tuckahoe, to the gluten free hipsters of Richmond Proper, to the Wildlings of DaVille, and to the reddened necks of my native SOJ. Our goal is to get more than 250 people to attend this year, so we need…

Folk, This may be a first for F3 RVA. Grizzly, aka Chuck Friend, pass away on Tuesday after a year long battle with gallbladder cancer. To me, he was a friend, a neighbor, and a protector of this great country. Grizzly posted to grid iron in the early days, along with his neighbor Short Shank (maybe the worst F3 name ever).  He was always in great spirit and maximum effort, even if it was a ground pounding. Grizzly’s obituary reads as follows: FRIEND, Charles Lunsford, 58, lost his battle with gallbladder cancer on October 23, 2018. He was preceded in…

For all of those who are interested and available to go with me, I am planning a trip to Wilmington, NC to assist in hurricane Florence recovery and donate time and goods for the weekend of 10/26-10/28.  Here is the basic plan: Friday 10/26: Load up the trucks and leave Hampton Roads after work (approx. 6pm). Drive to my in-laws’ house in Angier, NC (arrive approx. 9:30pm).  They have plenty of room for anyone that wants to come (they can comfortably house about 15 visitors).  We will spend the night there. Saturday 10/27: Get up early on Saturday morning to…

To all who shall these presents greetings! It is almost that time again!  Hampton Roads is celebrating another year of giving it away.  Our second anniversary convergence will be held at StinkHill on November 3rd at the normal start time of 0700.  Beat down details are still to follow.  There will also be second F and food (yet another F?) afterwards for those who can make it to which families are welcome.  Specifics are still being ironed out.  Look for another pre-blast in the near future for more information. Save the Date!!!! We are only 30 days out! RVA: You…

During my still relatively short time at F3, I have struggled to comprehend why some FNG’s stick it out and some don’t. Often, guys that I feel will certainly stick, are never to be heard from again. EHing guys to give it a try doesn’t seem to be a problem, but getting them back for that second cup of coffee can be difficult. Certainly many of those “one and dones” were fitter than I and struggled far less at their first post. What was different? Why was I one of the fortunate few while others fail to see the blessing…

High Impact Men of Hampton Roads, It has been entirely too long since my last Big Data Update, but this past month was just too impressive to let the opportunity slip away.  Bottom Line Up Front: although August 2018 was a record month for us, September was even better. First and foremost, we had 9 new FNGs! Welcome KiloVolt, Shakespeare, Taps, Hyzer, Tanker, Oscar, Dr. J, Chief, and Reaper!  Thanks for coming out, and we look forward to continuing to see you in the gloom. We also had a whopping 4 VQs, #SecondBell.  #TClaps to Catapult, Grinder, Doomsday, and Marvel. …
