COT & Observations

“Individual commitment to a group effort. That is what makes teamwork, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” -Vince Lombardi

Upon setting up the workout area, Spacebar spotted a skunk roaming around in the gloom, doing whatever skunks do in the gloom. Spacebar notified the PAX of the skunk before the workout started. Spacebar was threatened to be banned from Q’ing ever again if a PAX was sprayed by the skunk. For better or worse, no PAX was sprayed… perhaps Spacebar will be banned from Q’ing for other reasons. T-Claps to our St Louis PAX Air Heart for meeting us in the gloom this morning!
