Sometimes, when the batlight goes up on Slack that an AO needs a substitute Q on shorf notice, you just have to jump on it before your brain has any chance at all to summon up the excuse-o-rama.  YHC saw the need posted for The Clydesdale AO and jumped on it.  It had been a while since YHC had posted there, so this would be a return of sorts, minus much fanfare.  Some usual social media enticements were sent out, and a bike ride through the AO a day prior helped cement the plan.  Thursday arrived, gloom was in full force.  YHC arrived at the location and saw evidence of EC ruckers already at it.  Planted the #shovelflag and awaited the arrival of the PAX.  Good turnout.  Start time was upon us, and it was off like a dirty shirt.

Good effort by the PAX.  A lot of variety and movement during the session, but the PAX kept it going with a solid effort.  Was great having the 2.0’s there.  As you can see, the picture didn’t work too well.  YHC apologizes to the PAX that got left out off the right side.  God and YHC know you were there.  Blessed to be a part of F3 and to have a chance to Q.
