13 PAX (incl 1 FNG) strapped on their bigboy pants and most certainly did NOT #fartsack on the first truly cold morning of the season for Smokey the Bear’s VQ at The Tank Yard. Smokey promised that we’d be letting “the animal” out and the PAX were not disappointed.

  • Major T-Claps to Smokey the Bear on his VQ. YHC has no quads anymore. They’re not even sore. They’re just… gone…
  • T-Claps to the Tank Yard PAX for stepping up to Q. That’s two VQs this week at the Tank Yard and 4 total VQs in the 3 weeks since our big bang. Dexter has his VQ next Tuesday, so let Flay or T.B.C. know when you’re ready to step in (ahem: Bunyon, Baby Nate). Next step for y’all is to fashion some shovel flags
  • Pretty sure several PAX (Dexter) will be investing in some gloves for next week #chillyhands
  • Dine Out for Mom is TODAY. Get out and eat. Dinner convergence at 1800 at Papas and Beer
  • Thankful for Semper’s school issues getting worked out
  • LIfting up Semper’s family for their health issues and procedures coming up
  • Praying for guidance for Sanchez as he works to make a personnel decision at work
