PAX:  22 –  Edison, Betamax, Doll Face, Double-Dip, Huffy, Greek Freak, Smashmouth, Tonight Show, Frosty, Folsom, Big One, No Doze, Bloodshot, Room Service, Tenderfoot, Honey Stinger, Safe-Ride, Gunner, Spacebar, Vanilla Ice, & Selleck.

Weather:  Dandy

Qic:  Selleck

Selleck welcomed the PAX to the YARD dispelled mission, core principles and disclaimer; with no FNGs Selleck reminded the veterans to modify as needed and perhaps falsely advertised a PG-13 beatdown.

The PAX moseyed from the playground to the obelisk waved at it 3 times as they circled the mighty mast and headed back to the playground for warm-a-rama.


  • Sprinkler – 10 IC
  • Windmills – 10 IC
  • Bat Wings – 5 IC x 4
  • String Rippers – 15 IC
  • Hangover to Stargaze X 2
  • BLOCKdancer Merkins – 5 IC x 2
  • BLOCKdancer Merkins – 10 singles x 2


Now warm, Selleck directed the PAX to shut their cake-hole and place blocks on the north sidewalk of the YARD bowl. The block will stay on the northside while the PAX traverse from north path to south path. Exercises will called out by Qic upon arrival to each walking path. For reasons only known to Selleck he’s deemed any routine when you traverse the land to-and-fro (as an entire PAX) as AOH.

THANG – P.O.P (parade o’ pain)

Announcements/Prayer Requests/COT:  

  • Check out the APEX 0600 this Saturday at Oracle – test of self/acieration
  • Sign up for TCCTCC (Third Consecutive Classic Two Club Conundrum) will be live this morning; sign-ups limited to 50 PAX.
  • Selleck talked about resiliency and how it seems to be an overarching theme at work and home lately and how he may have misrepresented/mislived(sp?) its meaning in days of yesteryear. Now more-than-ever this wise PAX must ooze our TRUE resilience as leaders in the community:
    • Definition: The capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
    • Meaning: The ability to bounce back, be flexible, adapt, withstand adversity from difficult life events.
    • Being resilient does not mean that people don’t experience stress, emotional upheaval, and suffering. Resilient people tap into their strengths and support systems to overcome challenges and work through problems. (everydayhealth.com)
    • Contrary to Selleck’s comfort level, resiliency does not arrive by pushing through, rallying resources, or “just making it happen.” It’s not a fixed trait….when we are safe and feel connected to others our resiliency increases. It’s time to listen and stop being a mouthpiece for others. Listen, surrender, sense when to push and offer when to pull.
  • Cofferteria at ROAST to celebrate Pony’s 30th and mumble chatter about our exceptional resiliency.
