-Nice job by the Pax on a beautiful Saturday morning.  Nice little sprint competition between Turkey Leg and Ocho Cinco.  Young Love unable to determine who finished in front as he was too many yards behind.

-Jack Webb made a brief appearance.  Had to be an abbreviated session for sake of time.  No complaints registered.

-Hands of Time originally scheduled for 2 rounds but YHC thought better of it after Round 1.


Skinner is looking for a 4th to add to his Leatherneck team for April Mud Run.  Send him message on Twitter at “@f3skinner” if interested or let Joker know.
