The Thang:

AO: The Village

YHC arrived at The Village with a minute to spare planted the Iron Flag and announced the 1 minute warning to 2 other PAX who reluctantly exited their vehicles due to the arctic conditions. As the start time approached there was a flurry of activity as the rest of the PAX rolled in! Brownbag planted The Village Shovel Flag and the perfect number  of 7 was achieved  (perfect  because there remains only 7 cinder blocks and 7 pavers on the coupon pile).

Conditions: 34 degrees, clear skies

Ring of Fire#5 – ManMakers (ABrownbag) – everyone loved the enthusiasm, however, YHC had to modify after 1st set of 10 reps. . .each proceeding PAX lead only a 2 count set (purely due to time restraints, otherwise we would have busted out 70 manmakers #nodoubt) . . . Mosey back to Flag Poles
