Something to Keep me in Good Standings

Something to Keep me in Good Standings

YHC rolled up early to Hawk’s Nest on a pretty humid late September day, quickly joined by Snowflake and Sable.  Thunder Road wasn’t far behind, and mentioned he thought Floorslapper was on Q.  I told him I got the 1 week head’s up from Deep Dish with a well thought out blast on Slack yesterday.  About that time Floorslapper rolls up early, walked up to Deep Dish and asked if had the Q.  I offered it to him but off we went.  22 was the count, trifuseniks accounted for, Site Q Hopper down range but Deep Dish present.  Pretty good disclaimer given, not my best, but no one has sued me yet so I’ve got that going for me.


Ran to the office building up Colony for COP.

The Thang:

Mosey across the street to Summerhill Ridge Dr to the sidewalk just in the front entrance.  About this time before any instructions given, Semi told me they did this same thing last week.  Ran down the hill to the dead end, 10 merkins and back with 20 jumpsquats at the sidewalk.  Ran to Stonecroft culdesac, 10 merkins, 10 wide arm merkins, back to sidewalk for 20 jumpsquats.  Ran to Amberwood culdesac, 10 merkins, 10 wide arm merkins, 10 diamond merkins, back to sidewalk for 20 jumpsquats.  Ran to other culdesack on Summerhill with 10 merkins, 10 wide arm, 10 diamond and 10 burpees.  Back to sidewalk for 20 jumpsquats.  Some mixed up the order a bit, #socialdistancing.

Some American Hammer and Flutter while waiting on the six.

Mosey back down Colony to Hope Church and grab a lifting rock.  We did basically a variety of the beast, but you can’t do the beast in the front yard of the church.  So we modified with 5 reps, 5 times walking across the grass in front of the church.  Several comments about a perfectly good parking lot right beside us were made.  First round was squat push press while holding rock overhead in between stations.  Second round was tricep extensions while holding rock overhead, veterans walked while doing exercises.  Third round was curls.  Fourth was bent over rows.  I guess there technically should have been a 5th, but seemed like a good place to stop.

Headed back to the Colony Place fountains.  20 step ups (10 each leg), 20 dips, 10 decline merkins, 3 times through.  Air press x 50 then back to launch for some brief Mary.

Snowflake with the take out prayer.


Great group today, lots of chatter as to be expected.  Puddin could probably teach Spackler a little patience with the flatulence, sounded forced.  But Spackler did chime back in with some country club golf swagger.  As I was trying to find a Q for Anvil tomorrow Snowflake reminded me I had already asked him and he had it, bonus.  Great connecting with Sweater Set, he leads the Young Life contingent in S Charlotte.  Covid cancelled Family Camp this year but always an awesome time.  Slingshot out front for the Summerhill Ridge set.  Huddle House with a VQ at Hydra Thursday so show your support.  Clover really wants Hawk’s Nest changed to Falcon Crest.  Pretty sure he planned the overthrow while in Bald Head.  Not sure what the posting count is for Limey, but he keeps showing up.  When I asked Deep Dish about the rocks at Hope last week, his eyes lit up and he said, “really nice rocks.”  So we had to check them out.  They were very nice, but unfortunately I still have to give the nod to the large smooth river rocks at Bagpipe.  Only Ballantyne.  Enjoyed it guys, thanks for the ask Deep Dish and Hopper.
