IW 10 IC

The Thang

51 Merkins

51 seconds of Flutter

Mosey to picnic shelter

51 Perfect squats

51 Dips

51 Bench Jumps

Mosey back to shovel flag after a parking lot detour

51 Erectors (formerly known as Air Humpers) #paxm’swillbegrateful

51 Mountain Climbers

Mosey to side of church

51 seconds of People’s Chair then repeato

51 SSH

Mosey back to shovel flag

Rinse and Repeat all of the above [because of time, audible change to Erectors 20 count, Mountain Climbers 31 count and dropped SSH on this second round]  

There was merlot!



Scott Shuford. played football for Furman Purple Pladians, P squared.  This was one of those very rare times when an FNG has the most stamina of the entire group #didsomeonesaycrucible #couldthisbemudrun32ndmember.

For enduring such a #downPAINment, the PAX was rewarded with Chia muffins courtesy of the birthday boy.   A Chia Muffin is not to be confused with a Chai Pet or a Chia Head, neither of which is edible (but make a fine gift).  A Chia Muffin is not as tasty as a Grilled Cheese on a Donut, but it is healthier, that counts for something.


Powder Keg expands to THURSDAYs this week (8/28).  Published start is 5:30, but several guys will arrive at 5:00 this Thursday, as they will need to leave early.  The Thursday inaugural will also be Face’s VQ. Come out and support him!

Several local churches are sponsoring ‘Man Up’ on November 8.  There will be beer, venison (that’s deer meat for you city slickers) and guns with free ammo.  Bring your own gun or shoot the ones provided. Caravan meet-up is at 7:00 am at the Pelzer 7-11.

Prayer requests:

Pray for P Squared’s faith activities on the Furman campus.


YHC gave praise to God for seeing him through another year, and an eventful one at that. At his last birthday, he was unemployed for the first time since 1988.  YHC knew God would see him through that and he did, with a much better job.  As good as that was, it does not compare to the significance of becoming a member of F3 Nation. No monetary blessing could compare to the spiritual and physical renewal that came from that. Praise and thanks to God, but also to his soldiers in F3, #thankyouseemssoinadequate

YHC wishes to thank each member of the Powder Keg PAX for helping him to celebrate another year of life and for singing ‘Happy Birthday’.  Thanks to Brown Shorts for timekeeping duties as well.  It is an honor to lead such a fine group of men.

This quote was read prior to the BOM prayer.

Work for a cause, not for applause

Live life to express not to impress

Don’t strive to make your presence noticed,

Just make your absence felt.
