25 strong converged on DogPile this fine morning trying to better themselves and also trying to take the Ghost Flag! The PAX were treated to a beautiful sunrise, as well, during the beat down. Speaking of beat down, this is how it went down:

The Main Event:
Tug-O-War Tournament to determine which Nano-Region goes home with the Ghost Flag!
Daville had 4 PAX
Tuckahoe had 4 PAX (YHC withdrew himself and became referee)
SOJ had 8 PAX
Richmond Proper had 8 PAX (Hardywood gone)
Since Daville and Tuckahoe only had 4 each, SOJ and Richmond Proper picked only 4 from their groups to compete. This competition was going to be even and fair!
Semifinal One: SOJ defeats Daville
Semifinal Two: Richmond Proper defeats Tuckahoe
3rd Place match: Daville defeats Tuckahoe (3rd place gets no prize, sorry)
Championship to determine Ghost Flag winner: SOJ (with a whole new team) defeats Richmond Proper(2nd place get no prize, sorry)
SOJ recaptures Ghost Flag (YHC thinks he saw Gumbo put it in his SUV??? be aware)
still 10 minutes left for:
25 PAX all shuffling in a big circle and in order each PAX call out 1, 2, or 3. Perform that many Burpees, no repeats. With that many PAX, this was a killer! Maybe 50 or so were performed!
mosey back to flag for:
2 Minutes of Mary led by Rosie:
Freddy Mercuries x 10
Rosalitas x 10
Hello Dollies x 10

WOW! What a week! I have really enjoyed seeing everyone that posted this week. 52 different PAX posted to YHC’s Q’s this week and I am glad that I got to know each of you a little better this week! This is a wonderful group of guys and I am glad to call each of you a friend! YHC’s Q’ing this week was just a personal challenge that he needed to do in order to test himself in several areas of life. YHC is glad you were all there to help me!
This morning we witnessed a beautiful sunrise until the clouds and rain came. Tug-O-War was as fun as always. A Burpee Shuffle with 25 PAX was not! That was draining! Way to push through it guys! YHC will have to admit, the clock work merkins with the runs in between slowed YHC down a little. The grass on the Carillon field was as tall and thick as YHC has ever seen it. Come of City of Richmond, get on it! Lots of mumble chatter this morning, especially from Wilson. YHC is glad Wilson finally made it out to a Kubota Q this week, even though YHC Q’d twice SOJ. Congrats to the horses from SOJ on getting the Ghost Flag. YHC thought before we started that Daville was going to be tough with Mud Face on the tail end of the rope, but SOJ pulled through. Welcome to FNG – Drop Cloth! Way to work this morning and come on back out! Yes, YHC renamed him. Discussions were had and YHC is known to change his mind sometimes. So, there you have it. My call, I’m the Q! LOL! ET’s was fun even though I could not stay long.
Thanks for everything this PAX has done for me since I started back in October 2017! This has really changed YHC’s life for the better!
Have a great weekend all!
