-The QICs were forced to improvise, adapt and overcome… well, actually it was just a girls soccer tournament that posed the challenge… but, with the large field overtaken by some of Charlotte’s finest young soccer players, the Area 51 PAX bounced around the campus fringes to find suitable space for a proper beatdown.

-After a nine month hiatus, Special K made an appearance in the gloom.   Welcome Back!

-Feats of strenght and speed:  Donkey Kong tapped into his inner primate, demonstrating tremendous knuckle-walking speed in the bear crawl.  Ochocinco and Far Side turned on the jets in the 50 yard dash. 

-Five members of the PAX conducted a scouting mission at the new Charlotte South workout site — The Rock — that will officially launch on Saturday September 8th at Calvary Church.  Indications are that this site will have much to offer, including a hill that may leave you running home for momma.

John Chepul is my brother – Run him hard as he has a reputation to up-hold. Name suggestions – “Tax dodger” or “Geitner” as he prepares tax returns
