  1. What do you end up with at the Powder Keg when all former FNGs for this AO show up for the same work out? Can we use this comment thing as a impromptu “ROLL CALL” – of sorts?
    What was this, our 5th edition of Powder Keg?

  2. FASTFORWARD to 26July2014… QIC Domer hasn’t posted yet, but this can’t wait…F3NATION is about fitness, fellowship and faith! It’s mission is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership. TCLAPS to Brown Shorts for your leadership role as we gathered around the Shovelflag! YOU modeled something that is righteous – you glorified God in stepping out of your comfort zone! Great warmup! Before TODAY, some of us knew there would be ‘coupons’ – just not the flipping form they would take! After doing 11’s of werkins & derkins and hanging from the rafters, Domer Simpson took us on a mosey past the backside of the church… we stopped after we arrived at the edge of an unpaved parking area near some woods with a ‘pig trail’ leading back into the wooded area. Domer’s instructions was for us to partner up and follow him on the trail to pick up our ‘coupon’ to use in our next routine. Some organization was kind enough to sponsor this ‘tired flipping’ activity. But it didn’t end there! Glad our FNG F3Dorothy doesn’t have to preach tomorrow. The soreness eventually passes and will be worth it in the long run! Your F3MDorothy, Aimee, is gonna be so proud if you can stick with your new F3Brothers. Remember… Fitness is just the magnet. Fellowship is the glue. However, FAITH is indeed the dynamite! Together, it allows men to beat the SadClown Syndrome. Don’t know what that is yet? Ask one of us. Join us in F3. You’ll be glad you did! NEWSFLASH: 3RD F opportunity “BATTLE CRY” 630pm this Wednesday, 1938 Brushy Creek Road Trinity Point Church. F3 Powder Keg is an outdoors rain or shine, hot or cold 1st F opportunity (fitness) and meets at 315 Roe Rd on the Marathon Church Campus: SATURDAYS 700AM & MONDAYS 530AM!
