Prayers/Praises – Duvall (F3 LakeNorman) – Father’s services are today.  Manziel’s father has some good reports!

Start on time, end on time.  It isn’t a core principle but it is spoken and assumed.  My bad on going over time today.  Thought we could make it back but was about 1-3 minutes off depending on who you were.  Penalty burpees are self assigned and will be completed this week.  As for the beatdown, whatever you throw at this crew from The Oyster will get crushed!  These guys are fit and ready to go.  It wasn’t until yesterday during Warthog COT that YHC realized that most of these #HIM are in their 30s.  No wonder!  But even our Respect PAX, Manziel and Moses were crushing it as were our near Respect PAX Bubbles and Karma.  Banjo rounded out the six but he pushed the whole way through and finished strong!  Great work by all!  Great AO full of a bunch of #HIM!


-Headgear out!
