COT – Numberama, Name-o-rama, Announcements YHC took us out.


Always great to be back in Ginter Park which is where YHC grew up just 4 blocks from The Punisher. At that point, there was not an elementary school. It was a small park called 13 acres. YHC’s family moved out to Short Pump 32 years ago, so it always nice to be able to ask Chum Bucket about some of the changes during that time including an urban farm that is where YHC used to play baseball.

YHC is always even surprised how he is able to post within 1 minute of the starting time consistently. Swirly assured Chum Bucket that YHC would be pulling up at about 5:59 PM. He was right.

YHC expected larger numbers because of the summer tour, but had a great time working out with Swirly and Chum Bucket. Well done.


  • Puppy Pile this Saturday (0705) at Dogpile. Marv has the Q
  • Happy Hour this Thursday at Tavern 19 (Independence Golf Course) – bring the M and the 2.0s for some food and music and family fun.
  • F3RVA Retreat – September 21. See Vinny for details. Also, there is a sign-up sheet for teams for the Cornhole tournament — you MUST partner with a guy from another Region.

It was an honor to lead this evening.

Gotta Run!
