Q: Waffle House
Waffle House welcomed the PAX to the comfort of the F3 tent.  A portion of the parking lot that was only 49.9% covered in black ice.  He provided the F3 mission statement and disclaimer.  PAX members had diligently (naked-man moleskin) completed their homework by listening to:
Joining hands in the middle up high, the PAX made a symbolic tent to start things off.
The PAX completed a BCTS – Bear Crawl Tent Squat – down the sidewalk to the B-Ball court. Two lines face to face, hands touching up high, squat IC.  The two PAX at the tail of the line, bear crawl through the tent moving toward B-ball court. Made it to the garbage can and moseyed the rest of the way to a beautiful dry ice free center court. Thanks Bubbles & Tater Tot!

Together We Follow- YHC reminded the PAX that when everyone on a team has the ability to complete a mission, and a clear understanding of the mission
Tentpole Leadership thrives- F3 style!  However, sometimes the mission isn’t even clear, that is when command and control thrives.  This is where our mission started.
