October 26, 2020 / AO – The Canyon / Weather: 19 degrees

PAX (5): Cyclone, Mac N Cheese, Polaroid, Othello, Fairy Tale
Q: Fairy Tale

This Q was a fun one to plan. I was excited to Q the Canyon again, especially after a holiday! I mislabeled the names of a few of the exercises, (specifically Carolina Dry Docks; I wrote those down as “California Down Dogs”– major facepalm) but the PAX present were knowledgeable and kind enough to help me get those corrected as we went through the beat down.

The morning of the Q was dark and cold, but the PAX came through with great energy, and at 7am the mission, principles, and disclaimer were stated and we were on our way.

In this time with the whole global situation, it’s more important than ever to keep the families we have connected. Especially during this holiday season when families are separated by COVID, our families– biological or otherwise– need us to be there for them, just as much as we need them to be there for us. Just a reminder to keep the people we’re closest to, close. Happy New Year!
