QIC: Script kiddie

No pre ruck or run this morning, everyone wanted to get a bit more rest in before the BD was begun.

I got there a bit early to decide the field and run through the BD plan, one last time. Ace was the first to show up after me then everyone else quickly rolling in, with Dunshire flying in to join us far the last warmup, sun gods/revese sun gods.

Warm-O-Rama:

Moseyed to our normal spot and then it was time to begin

24 SSHs – Had to add a bit more celebration since it was my Birthday

15 weed pickers

15 wind mills

15 Copperhead squats

10 sun gods

10 reverse sun gods

Once that was done, it was time to head to the field with some fun with the number 51.

The Thang:

Thang1
This Thang was brought to you by the number 51
Start at one corner of the field run to mid field stop and do 10 burpees
Run to the other end of the field
51 WW2 setups
Run to the goal post and do 10 Wolverines
On to the next corner.
51 squats
Head to midfield and it was time for 10 long jump burpees
Next corner 51 LBCs
Stop at the goal post and l0 hand release burpees
Back to the corner we started and 51 SSHs
And after that run to the center of the field and finished it  off with 11 burpees
That covered the fun with the number 51

Thang2
Since we were already in a circle it was time to do a fire drill
Everyone does high knees until a PAX calls out FIRE! then everyone stops drops does a merkin rolls to the right does a merkin, rolls to the left does another merkin, then pops back up and goes back to doing high knees until all the PAX have called FIRE!  Dunshire wanted to go again since he had a story to tell about a kitty trapped in a fire, at the end the kitty was saved and we all were burnt, to varying degrees, but… There was on more Thang to do

Name-O-Rama was done

6th man was Lightweight, so we got to know him a bit better

MOC
Lightweight talked about a runner that was blind but had someone running every race with him guiding him every step of the way, then mentioned in life we need to find people that can help us when we cannot see the path or are tired, to help encourage and guide us along lifes path, great MoC!

Announcements
Mentioned pre-order for shirts were still going we have 7 days and are about half way there on both
Mentioned possible second F event but not sure of if that will occur or not, this evening
Asked for more PAX to grab the Q sheet and pick a date for Starting line it is pretty wide open.

Prayer requests
Crumpet has a friend dealing with Covid so prayers for a quick and thorough recovery
I asked for prayer for my brother-in-law for a good report/healing with the possible COPD diagnoses

Gathered for the Ball of men and there were some general comments about, umm balls, that went a bit south, but all in fun and hey we are a bunch of guys so you know it would happen eventually, lol, prayed then on to Coffeeteria
