Moleskin : Daville’s first 530am beatdown was March 22, 2016. Over the last year, this AO and the group of men that have posted has meant more than I could ever convey in a BackBlast. When LabRat suggested we start an AO in Mechanicsville, I was all in because YHC would only have to drive 3.5 miles. Instead of having an AO close to YHCs house, YHC received a great group of guys that YHC call friends and brothers. Additionally, YHC has strengthened existing friendhships and grown as a man. This growth has translated into becoming a better father, better husband, better coworker, and better member of the community. For this, YHC has only the PAX to THANK. For it is the PAX that energizes YHC to go to bed earlier (sometimes), escape the fartsack, and push myself past the boundaries that YHC would normally impose upon himself. THANK YOU. The PAX sets the example of how a man faces life’s struggles on a daily basis in a manner that is courageous, patient, and thoughtful. THANK YOU. The PAX reminds YHC to put himself 3rd by the way it rallies around fellow brothers in need. THANK YOU. The PAX is the engine that drives DaVille and all of F3 RVA. THANK YOU.
Welcome to Bucketmouth and Sturgeon. Hope to see you both at future beatdowns.
