Mosey to Baseball Field bleachers for Raccoon Crawls only to find there weren’t any bleachers, so we Omaha’d to Bear Crawls x2 through the stands
Stage 5 (Switzerland)
Mosey’d back to Front Street and planned to do Clock Merkins on the hill a.k.a. Switzerland (Swiss make Watches – Clocks are like big watches…) but there was some Mumble Chatter about Poison Ivy on the hill, so we Omaha’d… Indian Run back to the original hill from stage 2 for Clock Merkins
12 Merkins at 12 O’Clock
