Announcements:  Turkey Tot on Thursday and Samples asked the PAX to watch the one ways in and out of the Colosseum as parents coming in to drop off cheerleaders might take offense to your driving.  Folsom asked about using his driving for a pickup strategy.

COT:  Swinger first mentioned that he was thankful for the PAX coming out this morning considering the conditions and shared that even though there are many differences in opinions this year, we need to remember to come together as families.  This weekend is all about love and sharing giving thanks for each other and families.  Samples tagged with that theme and reminded the PAX that sometimes when we get offended, there is a break in the relationship and we need to apologize, looking at the person, saying sorry for what we did wrong, what we will do next time and ask for either forgiveness or acceptance of the apology.  The act of apologizing will allow healing and begin the rebuilding of the relationship.

Aye- Samples
