Another typical morning in the gloom expecting a Gastone beat down, who had sent a pre-blast something to the effect of a surprise announcement or Q. There was a big turn out. More on that later. There was 1 FNG, welcome Cow Bell. Gastone provided the standard disclosures and hit on the 5 principles of F3. He seemed to be focused and determined at this point and jumped right in to warm up.

At this point, Gastone gathered the Pax for an announcement. Started talking about change and how it was time to hand off the baton after about 18 months for the dark knight Monday AO. At this point, I noticed a number of tears from the Pax. Maybe that was the sweat or perhaps sadness. Gastone shared that YHC was taking over. Feeling the love, YHC immediately called the next exercise, none other than tunnel of love. Form a line, get in a plank position with the beginning of the line completing a military crawl. Continue till the end of the line.
Turtle walk – like an Indian Run, except with a bear crawl. Key learning, this doesn’t work with so many men after so many merkins.
Mosey to play ground
Partner A completes.10 pull ups while partner B completes 20 squats
Rinse and repeat
Mosey towards snoballs
Stop for 20 big boy sit ups
Mosey to the start
End with the pledge
The mole skin
A pretty big Q fail on my part. Video did not record during namerama. If you were there and don’t see your name let me know.
A big shout out to all AO leads for ensuring Q’s go off without a hitch. For those recently relinquishing, thank you for your leadership and for setting the bar high.
It’s always a honor to lead. Till next time – Turtleman
