1st Base


Pikachu, Flop, Penelope, Scuba Steve, Rocky Top, Texas Ranger, Sawdust, Kiwi, Skimmer, Brown Bag, Rousey, Sunshine, Whattsup (DR), Hojo, Rubber, Hamburglar, Candy Cane, O’Douls

The Thang:


AO: Catapult

Conditions: mid-70s, lowish humidity… weather to good to be true in August


After two-ish months of following, it was time for YHC to step up and take my first Q. Spent what was probably an inordinate amount of time planning, trying to straddle to come up with some different things while not straying to far from the KISS principle. Big turnout from the most of the Catapult regulars and strong representation from Bomb Squad and the Village (who was kind enough to close and direct everyone Catapult way) along with a couple others from elsewhere. While Texas Ranger and Hamburglar ran literal laps around the arriving crowd, Brown Bag pulled in blasting U.S. Blues with windows down in support of YHC.

Announcements: Freed to Bleed coming up on 10/30, give now and you can give again then. 2.0 workout tonight at Waterway Palms. Brown Bag gave praise to his M for their 28(?) year anniversary (Congrats to both!)

Flop was kind enough to lead closing prayer.

An honor to lead these fine folks, think I learned somethings to improve on for next time.
