Wow! Longest hour of my life! YHC arrived to the AO extra early (5:15am) to, of course, get YHC’s props in the correct place. While YHC was at the Carillon field getting props out of truck, YHC noticed two sets of headlights at the parking area. One was obviously Swirly, the other YHC would not find out who it was until he pulled up to park. It was Upchuck. He must have been ready to roll or could not sleep, either way, we all literally piled into Swirly’s truck and had a nice conversation about hockey playoffs, especially the Caps. GO CAPS! Then some random dude rolled up in a rental car and approached Swirly’s window. Swirly rolled window down and random dude asked: “Are you Josh?” Swirly answered: “No Josh here dude, this is F3” Random dude: “I am here to meet Josh for a 5 mile run” Swirly: “No this is F3 where we meet every Wednesday and Saturday for great beatdowns” End of convo. Great attempt at EH’ing that random guy, Swirly. Wasn’t meant to be, though.
YHC had other tricks up his sleeve this morning, but had to go with a plan B because of numbers. 28 was probably the best number for this morning because it gave us 4 even strength tug-o-war teams. It did leave one extra for the triple checks, but it all worked out. Also, the dawns are breaking at a better time now in the gloom in order to see things better like the pipeline trail. YHC likes to work everyone hard in YHC’s Q’s, but YHC also likes to have fun! Thus, the tug-o-war tourney. YHC does not remember who was on the winning team, but it was not YHC’s team. So YHC will guarantee you that the rope will be making appearances again until YHC’s team wins it all! The best match had to be the Loser’s Bracket final. It was a good back and forth for a couple of minutes, until YHC’s team was ultimately defeated. Will not happen again, right Swirly? YHC hopes everyone enjoys their participation trophys they received from the back of YHC’s truck!
YHC would like to thank everyone for coming out to YHC’s Dogpile VQ which landed on YHC’s 6 month anniversary of beginning F3. As YHC told you in the COT, it has greatly changed YHC’s life! Thank you all for pushing YHC to his limits and being there for him! Thank you to Spike for spreading the word about F3 to me at church a while ago! ET’s was great as usual! YHC hopes everyone has a wonderful rest of the weekend and YHC will see you in the gloom!
