Twas a bright and beautiful morning for a Ghost Flag reunion at The FORGE, and two FNG’s joined the throng of fartsack escapees to see what DTH had in store. Here’s how it went down:
Mosey to COP #1:
- FNG Welcome & Disclaimer
- Imperial Squat Walkers
- Dive-bomber Merkins
- Breakdancer Merkins (confusing for everyone, even the Q…)
- Crab Cakes
- Heels to Heaven
Mosey to COP #2:
- Run to the CulDeSac, stopping at each light post to perform x3 merkins (around 15 posts total)
- Circle up on your six for Guantanamo – Legs Up at 45 degrees, Each man runs circle, forcefully throwing legs down (goal for PAX is to keep feet from hitting the deck, then hold at 6”), then the next man in line is following, hitting legs back up for PAX to hold at 45 degrees. PAX completed x3 rounds!
Mosey to COP #3:
- Indigenous People’s Run back around the top of the high school to the Amphitheater
- Triple Check: P1 JackAss Merkins on the Wall, P2 Captain Thors, P3 sets pace with going up/down steps, performing x3 Monkey Humpers at each landing both going up & down (27 MH’s each time) …some of our more studly bro’s box-jumped each step. Booyah!
Mosey to COP #4:
- Over/Unders down the Field
- Out of time – Back to the Flags
- Counterama #19
- Namerama (x2 FNG’s)
- Announcerama (see Comments)
- YHC took us out in Prayer
- GREAT time this morning guys! It is such a blessings to see so many of my WEAG brothers coming out to F3. Of the 19 who posted this morning, a grand total of EIGHT men from WEAG!!! – well done fellas! In the F3 book “Freed to Lead”, which I recommend all F3 men to read ASAP if not already done, the authors talk about the risk of DRTF (Diminishing Returns of Fellowship) when any given AO grows to beyond 18 men attending, and the importance of “Addition By Division” – splitting the PAX into new AO’s in order to create better fellowship/accountability with smaller groups, and also increase each AO’s drive to headlock more Sad Clowns into attending F3. Well, today was only the 4th meeting of The FORGE, and we surpassed the magic number of 18…no doubt in part due to the magnetic appeal of a Ghost Flag showing…but all the same The FORGE is an awesome AO, and I expect numbers will only continue to grow! That being said, if YOU feel led to plant a new AO, do it! I can attest to the amazing experience of facilitating a new AO – truly there is no more supportive group of men than the RVA PAX!
