SSH x20 IC
Abe vigodas x20 IC (mumblechatter…so let’s slow it down even more…)
Mountain climbers x20 IC (…and let’s speed these up)

Flying sun gods sobriety style (AKA Nancy Kerrigans). Lean torso forward, raise one leg to the back, reach arms out to side and do small arm circles. Forward x10 IC, switch legs and reverse x10IC.  (At some point Crawdaddy requested Tonya Hardings)

Let’s mosey, with some reverso mosey, to the front of the school.


Blankets.  Poles.  In a field at 5:40AM.  Welcome to F3.  It’s not a cult.

Stretcher relay – Teams of 4.  1 victim in stretcher.  2 pax carry.  1 pax stays back and does any combo of wonderbras, bobby hurleys, and LBC’s. Rotate through, so everyone can be the victim. (Tenderfoot mentioned this would work better for transporting small children.  Which was prophetic because…)

One stretcher pole broke immediately.  Backup plan.  That team used their remaining pole for Irkins, Hanging Rowers, and Derkins.  2 pax held the pole horizontally, while the other did the exercise x10, rotating through the positions. (That’s what she said.)

Some nice modifications were made.  Instead of a lap of the field, changed to out and back.  Also went with some 4 person carries.  Great job everyone.  You’re ready to manage the uncertainty of an emergency transport when camping deep in the woods.

After enough of that CSAUP nonsense…

We moseyed to a hill for 7’s.  Bobby Hurley’s at the bottom, and Lt. Dan’s at the top.  (we thought Rainbow was running away until crawdaddy caught him and brought him back…don’t leave us!  It’s not a cult.)
