The Second Annual – First Inaugural Installation of F3RVA Field Day is set for May 11th at Dogpile. This year the four teams will be divided into Nano Regions. Captains will be: Tuckahoe: Kubota DaVille: Spit SOJ: Gumbo City Proper: Vinny* Ideally each team is completely made up by nano region, but we’ll see. With that, choose team uniforms as you wish. Consider the gauntlet thrown. Team Tuckahoe, may I suggest flannel shirts. I intend for the Ghost Flag to be up, but don’t have control of it. Whoever is holding it as of May 11th, please bring it to…

A couple months ago Doozy and Conspiracy each told the PAX about a friend/co-worker who passed away after serving this country in as an Airborne Ranger and in DOD and ICE jobs. Doozy had a great request – that we do an Old Glory (coincidentally Doozy’s initial F3 workout was an Old Glory) in honor and remembrance of John and any other vets or civil servants that we want to lift up and honor and/or remember. So, nobody cares how late you stay up tonight cheering on the Hoos (or not), rise to the occasion and post to NoToll for…

We will be moving the Wednesday April, 3rd Roller Coaster hill run to the parking lot behind Palani Drive (401 Libbie Avenue). We will meet in the parking lot and have a hard start at 5:30pm. We will then run up and down some nearby hills and then retreat back to Palani Drive for HDHH! If you cannot make the run, please join us at the restaurant. Runners should be back by 6:15pm or so. This is the week of most public school’s Spring Break. Also, there is outdoor seating at Palani Drive, which will be key for those that…

Dogpile on Saturday March 23rd launches at 7:00 a.m. Breakfast Club will launch at 6:30 from ET’s.

Anyone interested is also welcome to join us at 6:00 in the ET’s parking lot for some light stretching and exercises called leading up to the 6:30 launch.

Gentlemen, The inaugural F3RVA Retreat is officially on the books, and will be held Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 22. Get it on your calendars now. I know this conflicts with weddings, birthdays, college football, lawn mowing, and other sacred events. I’m sorry. I did the best I could, and this is the date that works best. I’m also aware its a few weeks after BRR. Again, sorry. Plan accordingly for this year, and for the same general time frame in 2020 and beyond. When: 9/21-9/22. Generally plan to arrive sometime Saturday afternoon and leave by 10:00 a.m. on Sunday…

For a number of different reasons, there has been some entertaining Mumblechatter among the PAX in regard to YHC’s most superb ShovelFlag, created in preparation for our newest AO, The FORGE, starting 4/4/19. The original design seemed flimsy and labor intensive, so YHC developed a better design – stronger, lighter, and capable of lengthy extension.  For those of you interested in making your own version of the DTH Original, below are the necessary steps… Historical Note: YHC’s Flag soared above the United States Capitol on the day of YHC’s Graduation from the Virginia Military Institute (May 14th, 2005).

PuppyPile is cancelled for tomorrow.  The weather is supposed to be in the low 20’s and I don’t think that’s great for young kids.  It’s super disappointing because my 2.0 (Churchill) has been talking about it all week and even practicing some of the exercises (PLT’s and Wheelbarrows are his favorites). I’ll keep an eye on the weather and will get something on the books soon when it gets more tenable.  See ya in the (cold) gloom. Ollivander

Since I’ve messed up the date a few times, I want to confirm PuppyPile will be on Saturday January 26 at 7:05am following Dogpile.  It’s a great time for Dad’s and their kids to bond over some fun, exercise, and ET’s breakfast afterwards.  It will be my first PuppyPile Q, so suggestions are welcome!
