BombSquad’s 6 Year Anniversary BackBlast – Better Late Than Never, But This is Ridiculous!

Workout Date:



Quaker, Spork, Skid Kong, Beefsteak


21 Pax - You know who you are

The Thang:

AO: BombSquad

Conditions: New Years Day 2022, Perfect

This was the day, almost! BombSquad was established 1/2/2016 by a hardy band of brothers from Warthog (including but not limited to Bling, One Call, Lombardi, Billboard, & Handy Manny) who knew the Carolina Forest area was in dire need of some invigoration of male community leadership! It was the perfect place to create a new AO; smack dab in the middle of what would soon become the epicenter of a population boom!!

The location had it all, plenty of parking lots, baseball fields, a football field, & even a small porch for inclement weather.  Sunshine was one of the 1st FNG’s EH’d to the AO and he quickly became and EHing machine in his own right. By the time YHC arrived on the scene, near the end of June 2016, BombSquad was posting 15 to 18 Pax every Monday & Wednesday (Saturday Beatdowns were not instituted until later that summer).

Since its inception, BombSquad has been an integral part of F3GrandStrand as we left no man behind but left no man where we found him. Pax have come and gone and come back again, but through it all, the brotherhood continues to grow and become stronger. Over the years every Pax who identifies BombSquad as their home AO has contributed to its vitality, longevity, and strength. A special thanks goes out to the 5 men who stepped up to lead BombSquad as its AOQ (High Interest, YHC, Skidmark, Spork, & Beef Steak) over the past 5 years. Through their dedication and leadership, BombSquad has thrived during every season and every challenge. We look forward to even greater heights moving into the 6th year as CrossStitch takes the helm.

To commemorate our 6 years of existence, our current AOQ (Beef Steak), 3 three past AOQs (SkidKong, Spork, & YHC) split the Qing duties.

We had 21 Pax in attendance. This is what I think happened.
