It wasn’t long ago that a typical workout at SOS consisted of a dedicated PAX of 3-4 guys from Powderkeg (Slug, Duplo and TBag…Steamer and Hook & Ladder would show when they were not on shift at the fire department).  We would show every week and wonder why we didn’t just start another day at Powderkeg instead of traveling to Williamston every week.  The guys from Anderson didn’t show anymore and we had no luck getting any locals to come.  Still we pressed on.  One rainy day several months ago the 3 amigos car pooled to SOS and much to our surprise an FNG showed up!  He was later dubbed “I Try.”  It was I Try that gave us the inspiration to keep showing up every Tuesday.  Thanks for being dedicated and continuing to show up I Try, because of your dedication and everyone’s willingness to invite other guys to come and start there morning our right we had a record crowd of 14 PAX today!  Cotters to Roid and Cabin Fever!!  Here is what they endured…
