Fellowship

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…

Gumbo and his 2.1 and 2.2 (Redbird and Snare) and two 2.0 friends filled up the Gumbo-mobile with Chicken Fiesta and headed to The Daily Planet to “break bread” with the folks there.  We dished out some delicious rotisserie chicken, rice, salad and, of course, some fried Yuca.  It was a great time.  The 2.0s all took orders, served plates of food, and engaged in great conversation. Just like the first time I Q’d Breaking Bread, this is a wonderful opportunity for 2nd F and 3rd F and to meet and share some food and fellowship with some great folks who…

Gents – If you have not been to a Breaking Bread, or if you haven’t been back for a while, consider coming with me and my 2.0s this Sunday. I have the Q for the upcoming Breaking Bread this Sunday, 8/26.  It is a great 2nd/3rd F opportunity from 5:00/5:15 until about 7:30 p.m. at The Daily Planet (180 East Belt Boulevard, Richmond, VA 23234).  We will be preparing/bringing and serving dinner to patients recovering from illness or injury or surgery in the Medical Respite Program.  I’m looking for a couple volunteers to attend with me and help out. Not sure…

Gents, we are just over 2 weeks away from a great opportunity to demonstrate how impactful we can be.  Speed for Need will be traveling from Charlotte, NC to Virginia Beach, VA for a 5K sponsored by Surfers Healing on August 18.  The event will benefit the Autism Society, Tidewater Chapter and Surfers Healing, an organization that has been bringing children with autism to the ocean.  Here’s the thing, we need more PAX for this event … no sugar to coat this.  Fellas, we have an opportunity to use our somewhat “able” bodies to provide those who deal with disabilities, daily,…

With our move finally upon us next week, this Saturday will be my last Saturday Q as a Virginia resident. Be there at Ironclad for a review of all my favorite exercises.  Following later that day we will be hosting a going away party at our house, 4 pm to whenever.  We will have the basics – burgers, dogs, NA drinks – BYOB otherwise.  Shoot me a text if you plan to come.  Kids welcome. I will be back periodically so this is not gone forever, but I hope to see all who can attend. 13156 Parkside Ct Carrollton VA…

Let’s get some swings in before Wilson’s golf tournament and also share some fellowship and beverages… Meet at Independence Golf Course between 5:30 and 6:30 (range closes at 6:30) to hit some golf balls on the range (if you want).  Hang out for drinks/food there at Tavern 19 afterwards.  Come get some swings in before Wilson’s golf tourney that Friday. No need to RSVP – just show up if you can.
