It would be easy, perhaps, on the occasion of our 1-year Anniversary to simply angle our awards to that event.  As the Awards QIC, I will maintain the integrity of the assessment process and give all AOs a fair shot and due consideration. Q of the Week:  McGruff @ StankHill.  Read the Backblast – that one looked like a killer and I actually would have loved to attend.  Nice work.  I wish there was a decent hill over this side of HR. BackBlast of the Week: Dreamliner @ Stinkhill.  It was a quickly posted and legit backblast that gave a…

Sorry for the late awards post.  Had a short trip to DC Monday and Tuesday which corrupted my normal routine.  By the way, it would be nice to have a F3 presence up there.  If/when I move up there, I’m on it. Great effort on the Backblasts and the Q’s this week.  They were fun reads and the workouts were extremely solid.  Kudos to Spacemonkey for posting a Backblast a week late – that’s some latent personal accountability in play there and we appreciate the effort nonetheless. Q of the Week – Airwolf at DuckDuckGoose.  Nicely done Halloween-themed beatdown.  He…

The 3rd Anniversary Convergence was a double-dip extravaganza to celebrate three years of F3RVA.  Thirty-nine (39) of the faithful gathered in the darkness at 0600 at GridIron, and forty-three (43) of the faithful, plus seven (7) FNGs — fifty (50) in all — gathered at 0700. By my number-cruncing, it added up to 60 different people posting at one or both workouts, with 10 posting early and not late, 21 posting late and not early, and the balance double-dipping.  It was a perfect early autumn morning, and the grass, sand, and pavement were bathed in chilly morning dew, which we…

We launched F3 RVA at GridIron on September 20, 2014. To commemorate the 3rd anniversary of the launch, we will host a convergence at GridIron (click for map) on Sept. 30, 2017. The main event will be at 0700. As with last year’s anniversary convergence, we would like to drive the numbers way up. Please bring as many FNGs as possible. Go retrieve our stragglers. Don’t apologize to them for making them get up early — they need your intervention. As with last year, we will again have a Bonus Workout at 0600 for F3 regulars and those ready for an…
