Mary Abs Hot Potato – APDs, LBCs, Flutter Kicks
TYA took us out.
YHC was eager to get into the workout and probably should have provided more detailed instructions, however, it all worked itself out by the second block or so. YHC also assumed the Mary crowd was familiar with B.O.M.B.S as a foundation, so breaking it into parts and taking it on the road was a little rocky. Seems B.O.M.B.S. is a SOJ thing. Next time we will leverage an ADKAR process for BOMBS to get the squadrons together beforehand if necessary. Change is hard – something new and going off grounds.
Bombing run mumblechatter was to a minimum except for DK who was fully conversational to a solo bomber needing a wingman.
We covered six of so of the intended ten blocks, so we can dial it in for next time.
