**Audible was called at this point and Wait Time was forced to take over as Q while YHC may or may not have needed to squat in a nearby bush/tree area.

Announcements:

  • Wild Kingdom starts Tuesday! Let’s show out big time and support Tonight Show!

Ponzi discussed keeping an eye out for “The 6” and how this extends outside of just workouts. Encouraged everyone to “lookout for the 6” by reaching out to guys we haven’t seen in a while, guys who may be struggling, or guys that just come to mind randomly. Lastly, looking out for the 6 includes inviting FNGs and guys who need this more than we may even know. Shared a story with the group about how a teacher invited a kid to join choir which changed the whole outcome of the teenager’s life b/c it made him feel valued and like someone cared about him. We can do the same by inviting guys to join us. We never know what someone might be going through and just the simple act of inviting them to join F3 might change their life. It has for many of us already.

Ended with a prayer for safe travels for Folsom’s family, FDIC’s wife (Alicia) to find a new job, and brothers we haven’t seen in a while and some that we have who needed prayers.

Aye!

Ponzi
