PAX members started gathering around the flags at approximately 5:20 for some mumble chatter and pre-stretching as those who pre-ran and pre-rucked joined.
5:30: Did the F3 intro – Fitness, Fellowship and Faith.
Five Core Principles – Open to all men; Free of charge; Always held outside; Peer led in a rotating fashion; We end in circle of trust (COT).
Mission statement is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
Credo is to leave no man behind but leave no man where you found him. Announced that I wasn’t a professional and to modify exercises as needed.
Took a mosey to the Grotto.

Announcements: Shovel Flag Pass at Dragon’s Lair / Two club conundrum at Milt’s / Canyon Oscar Mike – Q’d by Tenderfoot / Brush-up project on 8-19-23
Prayer Requests: Rocket, his M and family / Room Service / E-85’s sister / Hooah’s granddaughter, son and daughter-in-law
COT: My M and I regularly offer our assistance to our adult children but are always met with “thanks but not needed”. Of course, we know that is going to be the answer but we consistently offer anyway because you just never know when they might hit their proverbial wall. For example, our son and daughter-in-law recently blessed us with beautiful new granddaughter who is unfortunately struggling to eat and sleep; meaning they aren’t sleeping much either. We again offered our assistance and—to our surprise—our son said, yes, we need help! My message to the PAX members is simple, stay consistent (not pushy) in your offer to help as you never know when it might be needed. And when it is, we can only hope that you will feel productive, valued and loved like we did!
The Q (Hooah) led us in prayer.
6:20 Coffee at Roast.
