Tower of Power

Conditions: COLD. 36 degrees, but no wind so that was nice. The Thang: YHC showed up a little early to set up and verify the Tower of Power course. Most PAX came screaming in right before the one-minute call so YHC felt a little better that it wasn’t going to be YHC, Fergie, and Hoser. …
