DTH #38


Twas a dark drenched gloom that welcomed 8 redwood veterans for the Dr Tryhard Birthday Hoedown. But with mild temps and the bright cheer of brotherhood, those gathered barely grumbled as YHC directed the PAX to collect their PARTY FAVORS (2 bricks each) from YHC’s vehicle…

  • Now THAT was a fine brick bonanza celebration of COP’s. The PAX moved so quickly through the planned routines, YHC had to tag on THREE more COP’s just fill the time. Credit to Bodos for the Bricky-Cakes terminology. Thx to GP suggesting the Arrows at the end. And thx to Handshake serving as Timekeeper this morning. Enjoyed partnering up with GarbagePlate and BaconBits. Anyway, ya’ll rock. Loved to start my birthday enduring the elements and overcoming the hand-grip pain with you. SYITG! ~YHC, DTH

  1. Great Q DTH. When we started into the SSHs holding the bricks I thought “this is going to be a looooong 45 min.” I might even have considered how I could run away. But after a few minutes got used to it. Well done for always coming up with something novel and painful. Happy Birthday!
