6 trusted servants arrived post gloom, some post Dogpile, to see what catalysts for change the Crucible had to offer today. Some details remain fuzzy but it went a little something like this…We met at the new, official meeting place which is the parking lot for the school and we moseyed over to the fields to see if anyone didn’t get the memo but all was good so we had a bit of COP including some stretching along with the usual suspects of SSH, DQ, LBCs, Merkins etc… Then we took advantage of our multiples of 3 and did a…

19 Redwoods posted for the first version of the Crucible. This is what transpired. The Thang: Mosey to field. 20 SSH, 10 Don Quixotes, 10 Helicopters, 20 Lbc, 20 imperial walkers, 20 Merkins. Mosey to stands near football field. Lindseys with jump squats and WWII setups. Mosey to field near road. Triple Check. Box Cutters, merkins, run to other side and bernie sanders back. Mosey to pole in the corner of field and perform a different exercise at each pole. COT and TYA took us out. NMM: This AO and workout has been a long time coming. Lots of chatter…

For 4 or 5 years some of the Pax have been volunteering as running coaches for The Healing Place 10k Training Team. Regulars include Offshore, Swiper and YHC but we have seen a host of including but not limited to LabRat, Hardywood, Bootleg, and the man who first brought it to my attention at least – Upchuck. We have a lot of fun and the guys from THP really appreciate our support. THP is a homeless shelter and a recovery center for men who have substance abuse disorder, alcoholism, drug addiction etc. It is often a fellas last hope when…

Gentlemen, I have to extend an apology. During the COT on Friday and again today, I mentioned the opportunity to sign up for Breaking Bread this month and during the rest of the first quarter. Unfortunately, that is not correct.Because of the incredible leadership you all are showing, Breaking Bread is FULL until MAY!! You all have done an exceptional job. I appreciate the continued solid efforts that you and your families make on behalf of these people. I thank you, Barbara (their director) thanks you, and the residents thank you. And, we thank your families. UpChuck

We cooked. Ziti, salad, brownies, + BREAD. We arrived to deliver a hot meal only to see Barbara was taking deliveries for the rest of the week. She was excited for our meal however, as it was HOT and ready to go. Sign up gentlemen. Couldn’t be any easier and rewarding + it’s a good deed for some people who desperately need a break. We are looking forward to when serving is an option back on the table. Kudos to Shakedown for following through Sunday even though his day went a little sideways.

Sunday started nicely with a pleasant run around the JRPS with friends until gravity took me down, busted shin, three hours in Patient First getting stitched up… but like running life is nothing but relentless forward progress so I popped a couple ibuprofen and hit the kitchen. Manicotti and Salad with some vanilla ice cream for dessert. As always, Barbara was wonderful and gracious, she does love the men of F3RVA – especially loves her some Splinter (she mentioned him several times though it took me a second to remember who Brian was – lol). If you have not done…

The post editor is acting weird on this ancient browser, so please bear with YHC. Five PAX converged on Zoom for the last 3rd F before Labor Day. Disclaimer John 6:24-35 Discussion COT Thanks to first-timers Snuff and Termite for coming out. YHC hopes to connect with ya’ll more in the gloom. Prayers for Pigskin’s friend’s family, Offshore’s friend’s family, Boberry’s friend’s family. The next 3rd F is September 14th. We’ll have a “normal” 3rd F that night – Q sheet is open! YHC proposes that we start reading “Life Together” by Dietrich Bonhoeffer and plan to start discussing on…

I am trying to track down a guy whose F3 name is “Clown Cars” — possible last name is “Tedesco.” He participated in the GrowRuck a few years ago. Any leads would be appreciated — especially a hospital name and mobile number. Thanks! F3 Johnsonville (flbiggs@gmail.com)

The purpose of this AO is to push the PAX along their journey in developing the 3rd F – Faith. We recognize that PAX are at their own place on the journey and proceed at their own pace. PAX are encouraged to share. It is not required to share (wise men learn by listening), but there is a requirement to allow others to share. What is shared in this 3rd F stays with the 3rd F; it is a COT. None of the PAX has a monopoly on the truth, though we are all truth seekers. It is fine to…

We logged in for this 3rd F event and had 5 F3 brothers discuss how the COVID-19 Pandemic has effected them, their families, the way they see the world now. Was there negative issues, positive results and what helped them cope to the present time. This was a healthy discussion and we learned more about one another. Very special and engaging! It was great seeing you and we look forward to the next 3rd F event in two weeks. See you in the gloom….Cheers, CB!!
