2020 Passport Challenge Wrap Up

The New Year is upon us and with it the completion of the Passport Challenge! Hopefully you decided to participate, stretch your legs, and get out of your comfort zone. Need a recap on what the challenge was about? From November 1st through December 31st PAX were challenged to visit as many unique AOs as possible and stamp their Passport. Not just 1st F activities, though! We threw in the 2nd and 3rd Fs to encourage men to really get outside their comfort zones and see what else F3 can offer. At the end, the PAX with the highest tally at the end would be crowned the Passport Champion and receive a prize befitting their tenacity: custom F3 Passport Challenge dog tags with their F3 name stamped in. No runners up or participation trophies here; just sheer determination and willpower to be at the top.

The deadline has passed. The final stamps have been tallied. So where do we stand? Who is on top?

First let’s take a look at the numbers

  • 45 PAX across Area 51, SOB, Union County, and Waxhaw participated
  • 97!! 1st, 2nd, or 3rd F sites recorded at least one unique visit with several from other regions even outside North Carolina!
  • Bushwood provided the highest number of Passport stamps with 19
  • F3 Waxhaw crushed the competition with 29 PAX registering at least 1 stamp and a total of 340 stamps in all

But after all that, what you’re REALLY after is who won?

After a hard fought battle that went back and forth many times…

Tallying 56 stamps and providing over 30% of the stamps for the SOB region…

The second place PAX is Chopper! Great job buddy! Way to get out of your comfort zone, challenge yourself, and set a great example to others!

And now…the moment you’ve been waiting for…

The winner of the 2020 Passport Challenge…

Hailing from F3 Waxhaw…

Tallying no less than 60 Passport stamps and 17% for the Waxhaw region…





Congratulations Das Boot !!! Well done! It isn’t easy getting up early, driving to sites unknown, taking time out of your weekend to participate in 3rd F activities, but you did it and you’re better for it. Thanks for inspiring and driving competition. Your dog tags have been ordered and we’ll get them to you ASAP.


Stay tuned for new challenges throughout the year. 2021 is just warming up and there will be new opportunities to grow, serve, and lead!

[…] For those unfamiliar with the Passport Challenge the concept is simple.  Attend as many different AO’s, 2nd F events and 3rd F events within the Area 51, SOB and Waxhaw regions as possible.  You can only stamp your passport for hitting an individual site or event once so the goal is to get out there and visit as many different ones as you can over two months.  See this link for the wrap up of the 2020 Passport Challenge.  https://f3southcharlotte.com/2021/01/04/2020-passport-challenge-wrap-up/ […]
