  • Poor coordination coming out of the holiday weekend today left no one assigned the Q. Sway — whose lack of coordination caused the problem in the first place — took it himself. [I hope it was satisfactory.]
  • Mission will have the Q on Thursday
  • Chaser announced good attendance at the MWF “Amble” runs and reminded all of the 2ndF lunch at Lizard’s Thicket this Wednesday (and every Wednesday).
  • Church Fire, who sells insurance for churches and whose boss has a Google alert set up for “church fire,” objected to his nickname because of business reasons and humbly asked for a replacement. He was assigned a new one by the Pax this morning. Although “Assless Chaps” was seriously considered, the pax agreed on the much more tame “Alter Boy.”
  • Also over the weekend, Ben Brantley was assigned the nickname “Sergio.” The discussion went something like Ben, Ben and Jerry’s, Cherry Garcia, Sergio Garcia ==> “Sergio.”
  • KBs were available for pickup this morning. We still have a handful to distribute — come get yours!
  • A GORUCK Challenge in Charlotte in August has piqued the interest in a few pax. Details will follow Thursday, I’m sure.
