***as a side note, the PAX tried hard to EH an FNG who was working out on the football field during Warm-O-Rama. We failed miserably***
Pre Thang: Dark Web: Merkins (10) /Raise the Roof (20).
The Thang – 4 Station Grinder

Presentation of Shovel Flag:
Hard Had presented the Iditarod shovel flag to Boji. Big T-Claps to Bayside for making this amazing flag.
Boji thanked all PAX for showing up and supporting the launch of Iditarod. He thanked Slow Pitch personally for calling out to him and bringing him into F3. A year ago, I did not know anyone in F3. Now the PAX are some of his closest friends both inside and outside of the gloom. There is no way that I will ever be able to pay back F3 what it has provided to me, however, I will certainly try. I encourage the newer PAX to lean hard into F3 as you will get out of it what you put into it.
Boji led us out in Prayer in an old school ball of man.
Thanks for the support this morning. It was a morning I will never forget. It was an honor to lead the PAX and launch this new site. I appreciate you all more than I can express. -Boji
