20 PAX denied the comfort of the fartsack to celebrate Part 1 of the Tankyard Anniversary week celebration.
YHC didn’t realize the significance of the day/week when signing up to Q…….This week marks the 1 year anniversary of the Tankyard, when TBC ran us all over Gower park and surrounding areas to experience the AO in all its glory.Today is also 11 months to the date from my first Q experience (11/7/13). Thought it would be fun to re-visit some of my old backblasts for a stroll down memory lane…..
