The Thang:

AO: Blackbeard

Conditions: 79 degrees, 89% Humidity, Clear

YHC has been meaning to get on the Blackbeard Q sheet for a couple of months but to do so, one must get on the Q sheet early since the next month is typically filled by the middle of the month prior.  So when YHC got on the Q sheet, gotta say it was pretty exciting…then Hurricane Isaias ruined those plans.  Luckily another spot opened up and YHC jumped on it.  Blackbeard is a great AO with a great group of HIM, including triple respect PAX, PapaSmurf and Shrapnel.  YHC was looking forward to this!

YHC picked up recent FNG #BradyBunch on the way.  #BB started posting Saturday and this is already his 4th workout and 3rd AO.  He still hasn’t read the welcome email and is learning about what Slack is but we’ll get him there.  He’s all in for the 1st F! As we roll into the AO, we see Shrapnel and Voltron.  Voltron is a DR regular from Lexington who posted to Warthog once when YHC was on Q so he had an idea what he was in for.  Shrapnel asked YHC to take it easy on them.  Hmmmm.   Hope I haven’t developed a bad reputation!  Anyway, other PAX started rolling in.

Mosey to the hospital parking lot.  Voltron asked if there was a reason the PAX were staging near the hospital.  As YHC fumbled through trying to find a good spot, Weedeater stepped in to help navigate.

Recover and Mosey to the other end of the parking lot where YHC had planned on some jailbreaks but time was running short so 22 Merkins will have to do.

Mosey to the basketball courts and circle up.

Great AO.  Great group of PAX. Lots of familiar faces but also lots of new faces and names for YHC.  This group is consistently throwing up numbers.  Today was a lot of fun and YHC will be back on the Q sheet if Cheesy lets me!  Thank you for posting.  It’s always an honor to lead!
