– 8/3 BigBang for new Irmo workout. This is a big deal and a challenge to us here in Columbia to make this work. Let’s see how many we can get out there on 8/3. If you can’t make 8/3 (like me most likely) then get out there 8/10 or 8/17 if you can. Maybe I can get a Q out there to spread a little SwampFox cheer to the Lake folks.

– 8/3 Hot Summer Nights race. Lets get a big F3 presence. We’ve picked up new members every time we’ve shown up strong at a race. Time to do it again.

– First Annual F3 Dads Camp at YMCA Camp Thunderbird the weekend of August 16 – 18. Cost is only $87 per person which covers room (air conditioned cabin) and food. This is open to all of F3 and so far over a hundred attendees (including kids) have committed. Here is the link for more information: http://f3nation.com/2013/07/03/1st-annual-f3-camp/

– Monday/Wednesday boot camp at #Brickpile starts next Monday, July 29th. Roscoe is QIC and will need others to step up and lead. This is intended to be both an alternative workout and a supplemental workout day. You will now have 7 boot camp opportunities on 5 days to choose from.

– Tuesday July 30th is kettlebell day at #Brickpile. Bring your KBs and learn from a professional instructor (secured by Robber). We will divide the workout as needed depending on the number of people and KBs available.

– The Capital Rotary Club blood drive is WEDNESDAY, JULY 31st. Several of our guys are members (Logo, Nancy Drew, Woody, Sunshine, Apple, Heist to name a few). The location is 1333 Main St — the CBRE Building. Please visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code: CapRotary to schedule your donation or call Bryan at 760-1562 for more information. Please participate — the Red Cross has announced a critical blood shortage and needs your help.

– Robber has offered to head up or F3 Foundation efforts. The F3 Foundation is set up to receive donations and disperse those funds as determined by the local pax. Any money we raise here will be used here. More to follow, but I really think we have an amazing opportunity to leverage our membership for some positive contribution to this city, be it service projects, mentoring, or something different. If you have an idea of how we can make an impact, please share it.

– I’ve have agreed to head up 3rd F (FAITH) efforts but, honestly, I need help. I’ve explored options like a men-focused video series to show at my house one evening a week (thinking Tuesdays) and looking at what people in other F3 locations are doing. Some F3 groups do “Six Pack and A Bible” (no kidding) and I like that premise though a six-pack may be pushing the limits of decency. More to follow but please let me know if you are interested and/or would like to help me get this organized. Between a wife, 4 children under 8, work and 5-6 pre-dawn workouts a week I’m pushing my limits mentally (not difficult) and physically already. Would love some help. Hit me up at [email protected] or on twitter @pjasonreynolds if you have an interest.

– The Facebook page is up and running. The weekly schedule will be prominently displayed and “pinned” to the top of the page each week.
