YHC was first to arrive and was immediately followed into the parking lot. YHC then jumped out of his truck and set out 2 cones to section off 1/3 of the lot for the ensuing beatdown. While placing the cones, the 2nd vehicle approached and rolled down his window and stated, “I must be in the right place!” (#FNG1). YHC instructed our FNG where to park as the WPP Clowncar pulled in carrying ¾ of Team BLAK. Introductions were made as a 4th car pulled up with another unfamiliar face, FNG #2, . . .welcome.

More PAX rolled in and so did FNG#3 & Hollywood (#Kotter). Crankbait is an Ehing machine and brought all these fine men out today. He left no stone unturned and search FAR and wide for the FNGs, but there was a common theme, everyone (except Hollywood) was a spinal implant rep! Apparently Crankbait ‘made them an offer they couldn’t refuse’.

Skimark then arrived solo to complete Team BLAK’s Shieldlock. Brownbag brought the tunes with a heavy dose of “Helter Skelter” covers from Motley Cru’ to Pat Benatar (YHC was waiting for the Wayne Newton Las Vegas Cover) (Apparently every Musician worth their weight is obliged to cover this tune!!). Humpback arrived on time and 2 minutes early to complete team “Lock’d & Loaded” Shieldlock.

Hottub & Flyover came for the COP and some miles. Hailing from N.E. Tennessee was Launchpad (He’s here to Thursday and lookin’ forward to Waverucker tomorrow)! These men comprised the quintessential PAX (Usual Suspects, DR brothers, FNG’s, and Kotters) . . . YHC had one thougt, “Well, there goes the Wienke “ . . . time to modify!!

Name-o-rama

Naming of the FNGs . . . FNG#1 – John is an Ohio State Buckeye  . . . who’s arch rival is Michigan Wolverines … who’s headcoach is Jim Harbaugh therefore his F3 name is, “Harbaugh”; FNG#2 – Steven’s last name is Pinkerton which is also the name of a  “Weezer” album . . . so his name had to be “Weezer”, right??; FNG#3 – Grayson is a local boy who graduated from Wofford College, who’s rival is Furman . . . who’s mascot is the Paladins . . .therefore his name shall be “Paladin”.

NOTE: a Paladin is any of the twelve peers of Charlemagne’s court; a knight renowned for heroism and chivalry

Announcements: Christmas Party December 14th. Make your plans now to attended!! Annual Halloween Beatdown – October 26th . . . start working on your costume now!!

Prayers: YHC prayed us out

Moleskin: Shieldlock Challenge is a real barn burner, who will be crowned top team at the end of the week? Keep posting, EHing, & bringing the Kotters to find out! Awesome work everyone!! Special thanks to Crankbait, a true HIM and visionary. Special thanks to Brown Bag, his musical prowess is legendary. It’s been great seeing Flyover out in the Gloom on a regular basis (even if it mainly just for runs)! To all the PAX of F3GrandStrand, “Keep on giving it away!!”

Aye!

Quaker.
