The THANG: Scale the Castle Walls
The PAX ran an Indian Run through the mote and around the castle (in the street, around the parking garage). The PAX ended up running as a giant ball and followed a leader that cut the run about a block to early, but all turned out okay. Starting on the 4th floor of the parking garage the PAX began The Thang.

Bubbles shared with the PAX the importance of building and protecting your castle. Your castle does not always have to be your home or family; people need to take care of their inner castle as well. It’s important to build yourself and become a better man, father, brother, or spouse. Build up yourself and the things around you will also continue to grow.
The final thing shared by Bubbles was that your castle never stops growing. You started building yourself and becoming who you are since the day you were born, and you will continue to grow for the rest of your life.
“Your task is to conquer yourselves, not ships, lands or castles. This battle is the one in which you especially are to ‘come off conqueror’. It is fought every day. In fact, it is a continuing process which commenced a long, long time ago”. – Neal Maxwell
Bubbles announced that his wife and him are expecting their first child, a baby girl. Bubbles shared that it was the coolest feeling he has ever experienced and that he can’t wait to be a father.
