Do You Have The Right Stuff? PB: ToG @ The O, 3-18-21 0530, Motor Boat Q

There was a demon that lived in the air. They said whoever challenged him would die. Their controls would freeze up, their planes would buffet wildly, and they would disintegrate. The demon lived at Mach 1 on the meter, 750 miles an hour, where the air could no longer move out of the way. He lived behind a barrier through which they said no man could ever pass. They called it: The sound barrier. Then, they built a small plane, the X-1, to try and break the sound barrier. And men came to the High Desert in California to ride it. They were called test pilots. And no one knew their names.

— The Right Stuff (1983).

The O. It’s not the high desert of California. And it’s 2021, not 1947. But you are still American men. Think you might have The Right Stuff? Then show up, and prove it.

Bring a coupon. You’ll need it. Be ready to sprint. As always, It Will Pay To Be A Winner. There will be Single Combat. Not everyone will win, but you will all get faster, tougher, stronger, and more humble. SYITG.
