Gentlemen, The inaugural F3RVA Retreat is officially on the books, and will be held Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 22. Get it on your calendars now. I know this conflicts with weddings, birthdays, college football, lawn mowing, and other sacred events. I’m sorry. I did the best I could, and this is the date that works best. I’m also aware its a few weeks after BRR. Again, sorry. Plan accordingly for this year, and for the same general time frame in 2020 and beyond. When: 9/21-9/22. Generally plan to arrive sometime Saturday afternoon and leave by 10:00 a.m. on Sunday…

“If you have much, give of your wealth; if you have little, give of your heart.” – Unattributed. Tonight Kubota and I, along with our 2.0s had the great honor of spending some time with those in need at the Daily Planet. We brought very little, yet received a whole lot. A great meal was shared, and great conversations were had. We could not be more proud of our 2.0s. They showed tremendous service, understanding and compassion for only being 8 and 6 years old. YHC was incredibly surprised by the smiles and happiness of these folks, despite their having…

For a number of different reasons, there has been some entertaining Mumblechatter among the PAX in regard to YHC’s most superb ShovelFlag, created in preparation for our newest AO, The FORGE, starting 4/4/19. The original design seemed flimsy and labor intensive, so YHC developed a better design – stronger, lighter, and capable of lengthy extension.  For those of you interested in making your own version of the DTH Original, below are the necessary steps… Historical Note: YHC’s Flag soared above the United States Capitol on the day of YHC’s Graduation from the Virginia Military Institute (May 14th, 2005).

PAX, 2018 was an amazing year in F3 Hampton Roads. This is due to the hard work put in by the High Impact Men (HIM) of the area. Thank you for all you have done to grow this region. Below you will find important announcements and links as we move into the next year. Let’s make 2019 even better than this year. Keep giving it away and always be headlocking (#ABH).   1stF (Fitness): New Years Day Convergence, 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. TOMORROW, Western Branch Middle School, Chesapeake, VA. NO workouts at #DuckDuckGoose (Carrollton) or #StankHill (Virginia Beach). Launch of…

The idea has been batted around and announced in COTs but YHC decided to make it official by posting a Pre-Blast. HDHH Wednesday 12/19 at Capital Ale House in Midlothian.  5:30 pm until ?  Come share some Christmas spirit(s) and 2nd F.  No 1st F associated with this one, show up and join in the fun if you can. Word is this may conflict with Hardywood’s 2.0 book signing but for those of you crossing the river for that experience, you might as well make your way over for a drink.

Gents. Wednesday December 12th will be our inaugural 2ndF Hampton Roads Christmas gathering. Please come out and meet everyone. You and your family (M’s, 2.0’s, and four legged friends) are invited. We will have it at Farmhouse Brewing located in Virginia Beach on Kempsville Road behind Atlantic Shores Church. If you haven’t been to a 2ndF, this would be a great opportunity to come. The building is small but the outdoor area is enormous. There are fire-pits and a tent set up for the cold weather. Most PAX will start showing up by 5:30 and it will run until about…

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…

YHC and his 2.0’s took several warm pizzas over to Breaking Bread this evening.  My kids were able to help serve dinner while engaging in conversation with some of the residents.  What a beautiful thing to see as a parent coupled with the invaluable experience for the children.  Labrat, thanks for putting this program together, we love it! -Slurpee

4000 ~ That’s the number of time YHC worried about this event. 0 ~ That’s the number of times God didn’t provide all I, F3 Nation, and Speed for Need (SFN) needed. This was the first time the chariots left the hallowed grounds of the Carolinas and it was imperative that everything go smoothly. Well, as the event drew closer, it was becoming more and more obvious that this was going to be anything but smooth. We will get to that later. First things first: Why did Speed for Need make the voyage to Virginia? Based on all that I…
