The BackBlast:

Including YHC, seven strong Pax posted this morning at the newly named Echo Chamber.  Apparently, a local cross country team also meets at the AO on Saturday mornings.  Seeing how they were occupying the picnic table area, YHC immediately needed to think on my feet.  Not always the best way to do things, but it happens.


At 7 am, slow mosey to the basketball court for warm – o -rama.

Mission Statement – recited

5 Core Principles – you know it – done

Hope all you Pax got a good space at the beach this morning.  You were missed.

TClaps to Lulu and SharkBait for the partner work during Dora.

SeaWolf was able to get his phone and still was the first to finish the 11s….whatever.

It is going to take YHC some time to get used to this humidity.  You get used to it….right??


Beach day is today!  If you are not there already, you are in traffic

Prayer Requests – aging parents and family traveling and several not spoken prayers


FNG – Sharkbait is Lulu’s 2.0  Age 27(ish), and recently moved to the Tampa area.  Works in IT, and is thinking about making a transition to sales.  He mentioned that he was “bitten” by a shark once.  In reality, he may not have been.  AirWolf quickly threw out “Sharkbait”  and it stuck.  Welcome!


YHC took us out, giving thanks for the day.


Thanks for the keys, Lobstah!  I left them in the locked echo chamber.


Have a great day, and happy Father’s Day!




  • 3 for coffee after.  AirWolf was there for a few minutes, and then Lobstah and YHC enjoyed some coffee and 2nd F.  Boom!!
