Ray Charles with his first official stint as QIC showed he was, in fact, overdue to lead the Pax.  Strong work brother.  Plank & merkin ad nauseum had the Pax O2 deprived and commenting unsavory things.

Great to have 3 more FNGs – F3 Nation continues to grow!

Special shout out to Sickle and Supersonic.  The 2.0’s led the field in the Karaoke and some other parts of the run/plank&merkin.  Nice work young men!

I think it was a Bolshoi-less showing from the Pax on a sub 40 degree day – so thankful for that.

YHC was less than pleased when my Co-QIC Ray Charles crop-dusted me and then some during the Prairie Fire Mary.  That’s just wrong in so many ways brother.  Paybacks are especially painful.

Great work this morning guys.
