Blinking lights and several police cruisers were in the launch lot at Centurian today. Two of our pax were robbed at gunpoint by a male assailant. Checkpoint and Voodoo were not injured. YHC intentionally out for pre-KB due to BRR driving duties and most other KB regulars doing BRR. That left these two men in the dark. May have been a crime of opportunity or the assailant may have cased the lot as we are there like clockwork every Friday. Be mindful of your surroundings and always try to travel in a herd. Shovel flag planted by Escargot. Mood certainly somber among the pax, but we moved forward as the police did their work to try and find the assailant. Cane turns 39 and come to find out, Udder is 34 today. Happy birthday gentlemen.

YHC shook by this incident. Pax appeared to be as well as the mumblechatter was essentially nonexistent. All pax worked hard today. Welcome to Handy Manny, a friend of YHC and a Charlotte native. Great to have you and certainly hope to see you in the gloom soon. YHC took us out in BOM. Prayers for Voodoo, Checkpoint, and the troubled assailant. Really hate that these two men had to endure this today. Prayers for our brothers who are doing the BRR, other participants, and all involved for a safe event. Happy birthday to Cane and Udder.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THE HERD MENTALITY. Unfortunately, we all know that bad things happen every day and we need to stand together. Aye.
