Mary Tugboat came in like Randy Orton and dropped some RKOs outta knowhere on the PAX!!!!

Nugent Shovel Flag will be passed between the PAX and planted every day at an AO. The shovel flag was passed to Frosty today.
Today I was surrounded by my Shield Lock Brothers Thor and Patton we started our shield lock about 7 months ago and it has been a great foundation of strength, trust, and accountability for all of us. Some of us have used it to help us stay focused on our fitness goals, sometimes it is a guardrail calling you out for losing sight of your goals or correcting you when you need it, and my personal favorite times are when a shoulder is needed to lean on after a tough day.
If you don’t have a shield lock we highly suggest finding some brothers to invest in and share your time with.
