Strong work, 23 pax for my second Q @ HMP!

Welcome Paper Weight! Hope to see you again soon.

Clown Cars heading to Carterico 12/23 to retrieve the Cape Fear Ghost Flag – depart Donut Inn ~0450. Watch Slack for info, go if you can!

Sign up to Q! The calendar is wide open. Tiny Dancer will glad to have you lead on a Wednesday. (see other site Q’s or speak up for other AO’s) If you’re not taking the Q, you’re missing out. It is truly an honor and gift to lead. If you want a wingman, grab someone & Co-Q it!

Meal Train for Ball Bearing – find the link on Slack. Sign up to cover a meal for the family. Let’s rally behind our brother & support where we can!

Prayers for Cpt. Stubing’s family as the grieve.

Prayers for healing for Niles’ M as she struggles with autoimmune issues.

Again, and as always, it was an honor and pleasure to lead! It never ceases to amaze me that 22 grown men will follow me around, in the dark, doing stupid exercises, and do it gladly.

Go out there and make a difference for good in your world. In light of the current season, remember the gift we’ve been given, accept it for yourself, and give it away to someone else.   “…weary soul take heart. For help is on its way, and holy is His name…”

Until next time…

Blade
