The Pax: Deliverance, Gilmore, Mulligan, Flounder, Tarde, Kay, Checkbook, FloRida (QIC)
Three curious first-timers posted to the humid gloom to sample the flexibility breakfast. Checkbook, seeking any excuse to avoid the 24/7 frenzy of last minute wedding preparations at home, posted early in order to have first choice at a space. Deliverance sought out a new vista, but Flounder was specific about returning to his assigned seat. Tarde arrived on time but empty-handed, yet, as Gilmore observed, managed to magically produce a yoga mat before the first stretch. #BePrepared.
Standing Stretch Sequence:
- Arms overhead, arch back, arch left, arch right.
- Arms out to sides, helicopter to left, helicopter to right,

Name-arama & COT. Kay pointed out that this will be less pleasant in cold weather. YHC agrees, although perhaps defines “cold” differently than Kay.
Q sheet has space for signup to lead Thursday stretching. YHC is happy to continue to Q this session, but willingly cedes leadership on any given Thursday to any pax ready for a change of pace.
QIC floated the idea of a venue change to Kernersville Farmers Market near town hall on E Mountain Street, where a large fully-covered, well-drained, and wide-open shelter is available to keep the pax dry under almost any conditions. Plenty of time to ponder and discuss.
Always an joy to participate, an honor to belong, and a privilege to lead.
