D Day at Daville


YHC showed up to welcome a new recruit thanks to Opus. Knowing others may be coming in hot, plant the flag, and mosey to parking lot and start with parking space tracers. Bulkhead comes rolling in and we have 4 for this morning’s fun. With the group formed we mosey to the bus loop and form up for some COP


We start with 20 SSH, 10 DQ’s, 10 Imperial Walkers, 10 Ukrainian Soldiers, 10 helicopters, 15 arm circles, 10 small and 5 big, reverso, 20 LBC’s, 10 reverse scorpions, 10 4ct American Hammers, 10 scorpions, 20 merkins.


With for YHC decides a Triple check is in order using the bus loop, with an FNG, this is good to allow some mumble chatter with the FNG and also keep a nice sweat steady workout. This routine consisted of P1- Running a Lap as the timer, P2 – Squats, P3 – LBC’s, P4 – Step ups on the bench. We rotate with P4 – running the Lap, P1 – Squats, P2 – LBC’s, P3 – Step ups on the Bench. We rotate 2 more times so everyone has a turn at each exercise. This completes one Set. We do two more sets for a triple check.

Next we mosey to the Tennis court and form up on the side line we brocode the following:

Bear crawl to mid line, Crawl bear back to side line, we Lunge to the opposite side line and bernie saunders back. We do this two more times for a triple check and mosey back to the flag. We have one minute left for some merkins, Jazzercise stretch 10 reps (shout out to Nancy Lopez!).

Numberama, Namerama, we met a FNG today his name is Chris Fulcrod – who owns and manages Air Park Auto Service and lives in the area. He likes to go on little adventures so we collectively thought Gilligan was appropriate. Welcome Gilligan! YHC took us out in Prayer.

Announcements – Daville is looking into a Happy Hour coming up soon at Final Gravity in Lakeside, we are thinking a dart board competition between the F3 guys! Stay tuned for the details.

Finally – Today is D Day, Saving Private Ryan is likely the most recent and accurate depiction of the D-Day Assault and subsequent battles in the following days. Most reading this backblast have likely seen this movie and would probably agree how moving this movie was in bringing the war to life where the audience may (even for this brief time) experience the loss, anguish, grit and determination to survive and return home to the US. If you have not seen this movie, I highly recommend you do so and learn of some patriots that gave it all for freedom and peace.

Have a great day gents, as it was an honor to lead this morning. Cheers….CB!
