  • NoToll in December has never felt so breezy balmy. YHC waited a solid minute extra to kick-off this AM while at least 5 guys exited their vehicles. But 18 dudes is a GREAT crew. YHC noted that the old Partner Carry warm-up was generally ignored in preference to a typical jog to the parking lot. Thanks to the few game fellas who gave it a go. Felt good this morning to cuddle up close to that oh-so-soft NoToll turf. Glad we could make good use of it on such a nice morning. Thanks to everyone for pushing hard this morning, and always humbled and thankful for the opportunity to lead such great men. Get out there and be a footstool for someone today – everyone needs a lift closer to the Almighty. SYITG
