It was a good day to have a good day. Unfortunately today was a test of strength, stamina and memory. This is what happened…

YHC rolled into the Mt Holly Middle school later than planned due to some traffic light hijinks on the trip north. As the luxury sedan arrived, the President of F3, Dark Helmet, called for the PAX to head away from the start…before start time! Sure, YHC can cut time close sometimes but I had at least 15 seconds before 5:30. Thankfully the Q stopped before he got out of the parking lot. Gracias!

The Q probably did a warmup, and he definitely asked if there were any FNGs present, of which there we none. At some point in all this he asked if anyone, other than YHC, could recite the Mission of F3. No one spoke up so we were instructed to do 5 burpees. We moseyed at a pretty good clip around the corner until we stopped. The Q asked again if we could recite the mission, nothing close was given, 5 more burpees. This scenario occured several more times, along with the Q asking for the 5 Core Principles of F3. This was a little better but still not close enough. More burpees… YHC even spoke up one time when something other than the Mission and Core Principles was asked and I wasn’t supposed to answer. More burpees….Apparently Pillager can’t do Side Straddle Hops in cadence either. More burpees…

By the end of the beatdown the PAX was pretty close on both counts, so the Q let up the pressure and allowed us finish up in one piece. Many thanks to Dark Helmet for posting north of his native land. Aye!
