Earlier in the year it was decided we would try and do a convergence once a qtr since we now have workouts spread across Gaston county. The 4th and final one this year was held at the original AO Gashouse(Schielle Museum). The timing on this one was to collect items for the Boys and Girls Club in the name of OST. We did this last year and everyone at the club was very grateful.  If you are able, come out on the 12th to help take these items to donate them and see for yourself. Bandit will be sending out the time. This one was also scheduled the morning after our Christmas party so that we could keep each other accountable at the party. It worked for some and some it didn’t but all that could made the workout anyway. So below is how it went.


YHC talked for a few minutes about building leadership during F3. Something we sometimes lose sight of. It takes all of us participating and stepping up to lead to keep this thing going.


Let’s mosey! We went up to the track. I figured everyone would think we would stop once we got there so we went on around for a lap.

The Thang:

YHC read a story called That’s Not My Job(Google it). It’s about Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. I’ve had this hanging in my office for years and read it at least once a week.

Partner up and line up down the sideline of the football field. For the next while we did the same thing and just swapped out the exercise. P1 runs across the field and back while P2 does the exercise then switch.

100 Merkins

200 In/Outs

100 Squats

200 Plank Jacks

200 Def Leppard Merkins

Even though there were so many of us and we were spread out on the field the mumblechatter was still very strong! Great job everyone!

We circled back up in an uncomfortable close sweaty circle. YHC talked. I do that every once in a while. I mean I don’t really like too but sometimes I will. This is what I said in a nutshell:

Thank You to everyone for supporting me in my time as Nantan. Thanks to Whoopee for giving me the opportunity to lead and learn. Mostly I learned. I learned what I believe the Nantan should be and that I’m not quite there. I struggle with how to motivate others to lead. I believe I can and do lead but not in the true fashion of a leader. A leader shouldn’t just get people to follow him but should be inspiring others to lead. My promise to you, with your help, is I will continue to learn and grow as that kind of leader. For now I will hand the position over to a man that inspires us all. This guy is always pushing and supporting the PAX. He is always looking out for the six. I saw him jump out of a car and get the six at a workout he wasn’t even at! For the past 6 months or so he has pushed us all with his involvement in SFN. I am proud to call him my friend and brother and know that I’m way better off now that he is in my life. TOOLTIME!!!!!!!!

Ok so I may not have said it just like that but something like that. At this point Tooltime took over as Q.

After Freight handed the Q over YHC explained that Brownstreak was a guy that YHC always looked up to. That even though he was a quiet guy he would ALWAYS bring it when it came to beat downs. So in honor of Brownstreaks return this past week YHC gives you….

YHC is honored and humbled that Freight has selected him to take over as Nantan Next year. YHC prays and asks for prayers for wisdom, strength, courage, humility, grace so that YHC can serve the men of Gashouse well this next coming year. Thank you Freight for your service and dedication to F3 Gastonia this past year as Nantan …..YHC has a tough road ahead following you. It is truly an honor to call you a brother and a friend!
