The PAX was excited and enthused to have some new blood Q’n over at the Lion’s Den. Excitement and enthusiam soon waned once they figured out what Ole Soup had in mind for the morning.
After waiting around for a few minutes to see if GCOD was gonna come flying through the parking lot, we decided it was time to get this party started.

Great work by the Pax. Looking forward to GCOD bringing pre/post workout nutrition whenever he finds his way out of the Fart Sack. Awesome morning to be out in the less than gloomy settings today. There was much mumble chatter on many things F3 related (Differences between the #803 and the #864, why your home AO is your home AO and things like that.) But what really got the group going is the lack of PAX at the #LionsDen. There’s been plenty of talk about how it’s a great/underutilized AO, so seriously come check us out. Don’t worry, the lion’s you hear roaring in the background are kept in cages, and you are completely safe…. unless you’re the “6”. No seriously, I kid, I kid.

-Sign up for the Drifter 6K I hear it’s a great time
-Turn Up for “Turning Point”. Great 3rd F Opportunity. Slim and Sponge are the go to guys on this one

Soup Out…
