The Falcon 26 is Hard

AO: Rubicon

When: 2024-05-23

QIC: The Real Woody

PAX (14): Avis, Cookie, Devito, FannyPack, Focker, Lil Hurt, MillerTime, No-See-Um, Pinkey, Special K, Sweep3r, Tank, Trebek


Working his way back into the Rubicon fold, (3 times in the last month after a 2 year hiatus), YHC stepped up to take the Q and give the PAX a great BD.  While in the midst of planning, it was to be a tour of the AO but when that occurred earlier in the week, YHC changed the course and decided to pay honor to a fallen F3 brother, Falcon, who the BD is now named after.  The PAX were to bring a coupon and the customary chatter on the channel began. The playlist was constructed a bit differently than the traditional Alt or Classic Rock ones that most Q's deliver.  Or in @Goat tunes.  It was 90s/2000s R&B and seemed to be well received.  Weather was amazing and the energy was pretty decent...until the whiteboard came out. Disclaimer given.  LET'S GO!


13 SSH, sprinklers, weedpickers Mosey for ~400 with carioca, butt kicks, skips, mixed in. 13 copperhead squats, MTN climbers, copperhead merkins

14 SSH in cadence

26 Flying Squirrels

26 Curls - with coupon

26 No Cheat Merkins (HRR with shoulder tap) - no coupon

14 SSH

4 rounds...we only got through 3, although Tank (like always) could've done 4 if permitted to go at his pace the entire BD. It was unfortunate that some of the PAX had to endure the same BD a day earlier at the The Bound AO...or maybe it wasn't??? There was definitely a lot of frustration and chatter at the start when 26 flying squirrels kicked it off, but that soon turned into a lot of strong men, working hard to honor Falcon and to support each other.


We discussed the meaning and prayed for Falcon and his family.  Prayers and praise for Pinkey's father, Sweeper's friend's daughter, Woody's brother and those unspoken offerings. Coffeeteria followed...

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Always a privilege to lead these men.  Woody...aka, The Real Woody, Morning Woody...OUT.
