That’s a LONG Runway at the Chopper BB 10.19.18

I don’t know how many times I’ve posted at Vets, but when I have we’ve generally been confined the big parking lot & baseball fields area. In preparation for this Q I wanted to see what else the park has to offer so I went Wednesday afternoon & scouted things out. What I discovered was that when the construction is completed on this park Vets will be one of the most badass AOs we have.

Weather: 36* with 93% humidity.

Gearlander: Grey North Face Toboggan, Neon Fire-Orange Nike Pull Over, Black Nike Shorts with Black Nike Tights underneath, & some Grey Addidas shoes.

PAX:

  1. Crash
  2. Carlose
  3. Snow Day
  4. Tony Malito 
  5. Jitterbug (R)
  6. Worm
  7. Nice & Slow
  8. Huggies
  9. Meatball
  10. PK
  11. McAfee
  12. Nino (QIC)

I gave the disclaimer & we were off on a mosey over to the basketball court for COP.

COP

  • (20) Imperial Walkers IC
  • (20) SSH IC
  • (20) Grass Grabbers IC

Enough with the warm-up, we had things to do so it was off on a mosey through the construction to the back side of the park where Thang 1 was waiting. (the hill in the daytime vs the gloom)

Once the PAX was all finished we took a moment to recover by walking up the hill picking up the cones along the way. Upon getting to the top of the hill we moseyed back over to the basketball court for Thang 2. Due to the construction taking place in the park there are 12-15 picnic tables all placed along the sides of the court. When I was scouting out the park the other day the tables were arranged like this & it was like a sign that I had to use them in my WO.

Announcements

Intentions: There were many said, unsaid, but specifically thoughts & prayers with Banana Bread. 

I took it to the SkyQ thanking him for another day & the opportunity to lead these HIMs for 45 minutes of their day. It’s always a humbling experience to get to Q.

Nino out.
