14 SPEARHEADs decided to start their Thursday off a little early for some good old fashioned time hacks.
The following information was PreBlasted to the SPEARHEADs earlier this week:
Points of interest:
We arrived at CMS at 0435. Clueless, our newest committed SPEARHEAD, was first on the scene. He proudly displayed his laminated copy of the map that was distributed earlier in the week.
At 0440, the team assembled and chose a team leader and navigator. The team was given a waypoint – “MP” (Mountainbrook Park)
Luckily for the team, Clueless was able to use his map and the team leadership developed a plan. The team leader proposed a time limit of 20 minutes, while Angler suggested 30 minutes. The Q took an average of 25 minutes, and we launched at 0445. Team Leader: Clueless Navigator: The Hoff
Waypoint: Mountainbrook Park.
Estimated distance: 1.5 miles.
Time Limit Chosen: 25 minutes
Route: The team went down Lori Ln and onto Colony. Left on Carmel. Right on Mill Pond. Follow Mill Pond to Mountainbrook, bear right. Park is at the end of the road.
Actual Time: 30 minutes :: TIME HACK FAILED
At Mountainbrook Park – find package hidden in the bushes.
Ruck with 6 bricks and a length of chain discovered. New coupon.
A new team leader was appointed – Dora. Navigator appointed – Mighty Mite.
Culkin, being a Mountainbrook native, was permitted to assist the team with finding a secret short cut through the woods.
Waypoint: Phillips Place Cinema.
Estimated distance: 1.25 miles.
Time Limit Chosen: 20 minutes
Route: The team went into Mountainbrook park until they saw the creek. Hoff found a new log, and Donkey Kong found a rock. Two new team coupons.
Turn right at the creek, walk through the woods and up to Colony road. Take Colony Road to Fairview. Left on Fairview. Left into Phillips Place.
Actual Time: 22 minutes :: TIME HACK FAILED
The team was lucky that there was a security vehicle parked in front of the movie theater. There is a fountain there, which was planned to be used for a punishment for failing the time hack.
The PAX stayed dry, and we continued on.
Coupon hidden in the bushes at Phillips Place. Liquor Cycle found a 40lb sandbag. New coupon added to the team.
A new team leader was appointed: Crab Cakes.

Actual Time: 37 minutes :: TIME HACK FAILED
When we made the turn onto Camilla, our time hack was already failed. Dora was killed off and added to the Team’s load as punishment for missing the time hack. As we know, The Hoff likes to pick up men, so he leaped at the chance to carry Dora for the rest of the way.
