Always great to be at Catapult! This AO has seen an explosion of new #HIM faces thanks to the steady recruitment from the AOQ O’Douls and others.  I was excited that lots of newer men (but not FNGs anymore), a welcomed back award winning teaching – Kotter (done with school for a year – Rocky Top) and some original members made it out for my BQ. This made for a great mixture – the fact that all were probably young enough to be my sons was not lost on this YHC.  Catapult which started as a moderate Q for some recovering from injuries and those deciding if F3 was for them has transformed itself into a regular AO that is a recruiting powerhouse with some #HIM that I believe will lead GrandStrand for the next 20 years.  While our most popular exercises are not running or burpees we do on occasion do both and none are worst for the wear.  All of the AOQs (and our Nantan) for this AO have been a powerful part of its success by ensuring that the FNGs step up to take on VQs and providing excellent instruction on correct methodology for giving a great Q.  The AO which is shared with Bombsquad also lends itself to a variety of exercises and has a well maintained pile of coupons to use for any workout.  I’ve been proud to call if my home AO and a great place for me to get better.
