Easter weekend and didn’t expect a large crowd due to vacations and family obligations.  Arrived at the Waterfront at approximately 6:55 and saw a large gathering of people at the Waterfront, but none of the PAX.  The large gathering of people was for a 5K to benefit Special Olympics.  I was afraid that someone had changed the starting location or canceled due to the 5K.  Bob the Builder pulls in behind me and wondered where everyone was also.  We double checked our resources and looked to still be on schedule.  We start toward our regular starting location and Largemouth appears from the 5K crowd.  “I signed us all up for the 5K, starts at 8:00”, he states, to the surprise of everyone.  Everyone’s eyes grew large as saucers, then he said, “Just kidding”.  Several other PAX had shown up by then and it was time to start the beatdown.
