The stimulus-funded weather station at GHS reported temps in the 50s, 4 PAX, 4 KBs, a ruck plate, and several attempted Attila Impressions. The signal was lost as the PAX moseyed around the back of the school, so the dog walkers picked it up from there: COP: SSH, DQ, Helicopter, Cherry Pickers, Merkins, maybe something else Donkey Bells: Inspired by the Mann Date crew, in turn inspired by HoneyDo, 20 DKs, lunge across the parking lot, then 20 Upright Rows, 20 Sit and Presses, 20 Swings.
