The Thang:

AO: Catapult

Conditions: A gorgeous 60 degrees, light breeze, and no rain, forecast be damned.

Catapult had a couple of open slots for the last week of December and when I saw a post on the Twitters about a transcribed Backblast of he first F3 workout from 1/1/2011 it felt like a no brainer to close out the first 10 years of F3. Being as it was NYE, Pikachu polled the PAX and it was decided we would move the location to Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium and the time from the normal 5:15 to 6:30.

Pulling down 29th, I saw the stadium lights aglow I took it as a good omen. That turned out to be a poor reading of the situation. As I pulled into the parking lot, I spotted Pikachu and Castaway conversing and new something was a miss. Turns out the stadium was in use for another event, so we would have to modify of the fly. It was determined the best fallback option was the Ashley Booth Field, and glad to report no one was injured jumping the fence to gain entrance. Gathered at midfield and about two minutes late, we began.
