  • Creativity is the spice of life! And part of being DTH is bringing new flavor to the RVA PAX …if nothing else it makes for some great mumble chatter! Really proud of you guys posting in the wet gloom and leaving it all out there! Thanks and credit to Hardywood for the Nancy Kerrigans – a great workout AND just damn funny. YHC always enjoys new material, but was particularly excited for today’s Tea Party Twists… turns out doing them on your own is both ridiculously hard and F2-less. Will wait to call those next time when there are even numbers. Our FNG for the day is Mason Adams who’s into photography and cards – original F3 name of SNUFF brought the PAX to tears, but powers that remain unnamed have steered YHC to providing him the nickname HOUDINI. Welcome!!! As always, it is my greatest honor and pleasure leading and becoming stronger alongside you guys. SYITG!

  1. Great Q DTH!! Enjoyed partnering with Swirly and Vinny! DTH can you update my name in the PAX list ? You wrote Split instead of Spit.

  2. Well done today DTH! I did not expect to circle up twice. Everything was hard. Thanks for partnering with me Vinny and Honeydo.
