7 early risers including yours truly thought “5:30 is way too late, we need to start at 5” and showed up on a mild morning (not quite 70).

DQs, CPs, ACs, SKs, and Merkins. Elevens with curb derkins and heels to heaven. During this exercise, Upchuck and Handshake were practicing poor social distancing by doing some sort of wrastlin’. The governor would be very disappointed in you…
