Start Time: 7:00
Weather: Overcast but in the mid 60’s and not raining, great weather!

So a couple of months ago YHC worked with F3 Snicker’s to create a new logo for Bomb Squad and during the process the established date for Bomb Squad (1/2/2016) jumped out at me.  Mmm… a couple of fingers worth of counting later and I realized the 5 Year Anniversary was coming up.  A couple of weeks went by and then a light bulb finally went off… why not have all of the former AOQ’s plus YHC to Q the 5 Year Anniversary!  As it got closer to the big date, I started a text chain with the former AOQ’s (High Interest/founding AOQ, Sunshine, Quaker, Skidmark) to see if they would accept an invitation to Q.  To my delight they all accepted and seemed to be pumped up for the upcoming occasion.  So a plan formed and we were each to have 12 minutes worth of Q time since there are 5 of us total and 1 hour to squeeze in the beatdown.  So heading into the week of the 5 year Anniversary, I hit up the text chain again to make sure everyone was still good to go.  Unfortunately, our brother High Interest informed me he has been sick and must stay in quarantine through the week of the anniversary and wouldn’t be able to participate.  After wishing him a speedy recovery, it turned out the 4 of us left would have a 15 minute slot each and we would need to prepare for such.

Before moving on to the big day, I would like to note that there have been a lot of other Pax that were not specifically Bomb Squad AOQ’s but that helped plant Bomb Squad and also got the whole region going!  Since I have only been a part of F3 GrandStrand for about 1.5 years, I will revert to the Hall of Honor posted on the F3 GrandStrand website which I copied and pasted below.  If you haven’t looked at it before read through it now and then when you get a chance, make sure you thank them!  I can tell you that they had to have put a ton of work into getting this region going and then developing it into one of the best F3 regions in the nation!!  T-Claps Gentleman!!👏👊

YHC’s Q:
Killer B’s- Team Challenge (Modified)

Count off Pax 1,2,1,2 (1’s lined up in designated area of the parking lot, 2’s in their designated area)

Each team does the following and then the team that has ALL of it’s Pax back to their original start area wins:
Note: Fast Pax encouraged to help push and motivate slower Pax on their team “No man left behind”!!

->Bear Crawl across the big parking lot

->Broad Jump back, but….

->Burpee every other parking lot line on the way back (7 total burpee’s)

->Bear Crawl back across the parking lot and then run a short lap by the baseball concession stand and back around to the start.

*Not sure what team actually won but it didn’t matter because what I did see was a lot of leadership in Pax returning to the back of the pack to Bear Crawl with and help motivate and encourage the Pax that were at the back.  That’s what F3 is all about!!

Due to time constraints, all Pax mosey past the concession stand again and then back to the flag for the COT!

COT:
Count-O-Rama
Name-O-Rama
