Thanks for spending the last Tankyard of 2014 with YHC.  It was an honor to lead each one of you.  2014 has been a special year for me, and F3 has been no small part of that.  The 1st F is great, but there’s no way I would still be posting without the 2nd F.  The camaraderie, fellowship, accountability, encouragement, pushing, ass-chewing, and the like from all my new buds out here is something hard for a lot of men to come by.  I’m thankful I’ve got it in each one of yall.  Let’s do a better job of making this available to our friends, neighbors, and coworkers who could sure use the same things.

WE NEED MORE Qs!  Especially in these winter months, when a lot of the regulars have dropped off to hang at the fern, we need you to step up.  Make it a resolution.  But make it happen in January.  WahWah, Beavis, Rusty…I’m talking to yall.  If you’ve been coming for a couple months, you can make it happen.

New Years Day Convergence Thursday, January 1 at 0700 at the Peace Center…Tankyard will be meeting there.

Drifter 6k trail race at Conestee on 2/7 – quickly becoming the SwampRabbit CSAUP event…got folks coming from CLT and COLA.  $10 F3 discount takes it to $20 and apparently they give a lot more swag than that.  Check the preblast.


Continued prayers for Amy Hunter and family…emergency procedure to prevent stroke Sunday did not go as planned.
