Conditions– Do I even need to describe?!?!? pre-one hour Tropical storm conditions.

I was anticipating the poor weather conditions for my upcoming Q for a few days, so I prepped accordingly to take shelter underneath the church awning. However, no rain nor tropical storm conditions will stop these #HIM from coming out….and they sure did come out (9 PAX total!) Huge numbers considering mother nature not cooperating. I got a few early morning texts to make sure we weren’t going to hold the metal flag in the air during the beatdown 🙂

Sprinkles HC’d last night and confirmed an FNG was taking the plunge even in the rain.

YHC thought it was only fitting to play the Frozen soundtrack to pay homiage to Tropical Storm Elsa. Quite a bit of playful mumblechatter about YHC’s play list this morning 🙂

I gave the one minute warning (well it was actually like a 2 minute warning :)) We all “lined” instead of “circled” up.

Disclaimer was given and the mission and core principles where explained slowly for the FNG. The Rain or shine principle was emphasized.

Time

Name-o-Rama

FNG Naming- Crop Duster (Steven) is a pilot who has flown/flys with the Air National Guard and Delta… we had a few other good contenders and first told FNG to let us know what name he would least like to be called to see if he would fall for it 🙂

Announcements- Freed to Bleed event/challenge (7/16), 2.0 workouts on Tuesdays at WWP clublhouse,  Saquash event & Asheville Spartan (end of month), discussed F3 communication tools with FNG and continued to welcome him to the brotherhood

I prayed us out- emphasized everyone’s safety in today’s storm and unspoken prayers

As always, it’s an honor to lead and be the AOQ gentlemen! Big shout out to Sprinkles for leading and EHing our new FNG #ISI #HIM.

Aye/Cheers!
