Today was our 1 year anniversary.  Hard to believe it’s been a whole year of moving iron over at Olympus and Gullah and I are excited to see where 2015 takes this site.  Special shot out to our ORIGINALS….I am not sure if this has ever happened before on a 1 year anniversary in the past.  We had all the original men from the first day post on the 1 year anniversary.  Props to: Big League Chew, Mighty Mite, Alf, Yankee, Gullah and Hoff.

As for the the regulars that we’ve picked up along the year.  Our site would be nothing without all of your efforts, commitment, dedication and creativity.  Your input and time spent with us has molded Olympus into what it is today (a CSAUP site for sure) :)!   Ralphie – Thank you for letting us pull your truck today…which was likely the epitome of any CSAUP workout addition we’ve ever done!


– Gullah to be the Shoe Q for Olympus.  Please bring in your gently used shoes or new shoe donations to our workouts on Saturday.  F3 is trying to raise 300 pairs of shoes in Area 51.

– F3 Christmas Party, Sugar Creek Brewery (The Old, Olde Meck Brewery) December 6th, 2014

To all the others, it was an honor to lead this group today.  Efforts like this make being a Q so rewarding.  Thank you and hope to see each of you again in the future.

Respectfully – The Hoff

This looks like a great workout. I’m sorry I missed it, but I was getting some 2ndF with my oldest 2.0s at Y Guides camp. Congrats on the anniversary.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
