Back to the Future

Workout Date:





Castaway, El Red Cardo, Quaker (QIC)

The Thang:

AO: The Village

Conditions: 41 degrees. . . calm!

YHC Pulled into The Village to find Castaway (AOQ) dutifully awaiting the deluge of PAX who would be descending on the AO at this pre-Dawn hour. We both knew that we would have some competition for the PAX’s attention & attendance because someone named Geno was Qing Warthog for his 50th Birthday. #WelcomeToTheClub #Respect

After about 5 minutes of Mumble Chatter without any other PAX arriving, Castaway & I wished a Happy Birthday to Geno and accepted the fact that today’s beatdown may be just the two of us. As we circled up, however, ERC came rolling in!

As our numbers swelled (2 to 3), I announced to the PAX that YHC would be reviving some Old School Beatdowns and Routines over the next few weeks that have not been used for a while. This idea was not, however, my idea. It sprung from the ever energetic, highly dynamic, & freakishly fertile mind of the founder of The Village, Sunshine! Sunshine pointed out that as our region evolved & grew, some staples fell to the wayside. It is our job/everyone’s duty to pass down our collective history to new PAX & recapture the foundations of #F3Grandstrand!! What’s old will become new again (like your favorite pair of short shorts, half shirts, and Mullets . . . who knows maybe even writing timely BackBlast will be in vogue again!!). This is what happened next.
