Tappy Taps — 15 IC
Big Ones — 12 IC
Sun Gods forward — 20 IC
Sun Gods backwards — 20 IC
Pre-Thang: The PAX then performed 3 exercises twice that consisted of 25 dips, 25 step ups and 25 derkins.
Thang: The PAX then mosied a quarter mile to a large grass area where 4 cones where set up in a diamond shape and performed “7 of diamonds”
Cheap Seats explained the Thang (7 of diamonds) –Performed on a large diamond. For the first round, do 7 reps of an exercise (burpees) at each of the 4 corners with a mosey (or sprint) in between corners. Each round, increase by 7 reps with a different exercise each round, for a total of 4 rounds. Round 2, 14 Bonnie Blairs at each of the 4 corners. Round 3, 21 merkins at each of the 4 corners. Round 4, 28 air squats at each of the 4 corners. If time allows, continue for a total of 7 rounds, decreasing the reps by 7 for each of the last 3 rounds with exercises of the Q’s choice. We will do some rounds on your own, then wait for the six each round; and some rounds we do as a group.

Vandelay reminded the group that there were opportunities to Q at the Oracle through November and December. Cheap Seats agreed to lead a 7am beatdown in December.
Cheap Seats discussed reflective listening and provided the 3 below quotes:1. “One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.” –Bryant H. McGill2. Most of the successful people I’ve known are the ones who do more listening than talking.” –Bernard Baruch3. “Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” –Stephen R. Covey
I challenged the group to truly listen before you speak and had the PAX go home and practice reflective listening with their family.
Tug Boat needed prayers for John in his family who is struggling with some health challenges and we said some prayers for Room Service who is in search for a job.
We had some fun with the Huskers Northwestern game and had the below PAX members predict the score with the winner getting a gift from Cheap Seats
Sixth Shooter is the WINNER!
Cheap Seats closed with a prayer
