Turning Point displays the true definition of “You Against You”

1 pax rolled into Turning Point this AM with the anticipation of doing away with the virtual ShovelFlag that has been used for weeks and finally planting the “real deal” that was decked out in Battleship Gray as if it came straight from battle at the Midway atoll.  YHC had the Q and seemed to be the only pax ready to take on Turning Point on this day.  Feels pretty good to hold the record number for pax attendance in the F3 Lake Murray region.  The Thang was prepared and the show had to go on so YHC donned his gloves and went to work to represent all of F3 Lake Murray at Turning Point.  A good time was had by all (ONE).

  • This would be my first post in which the pax attendance was one.  I have to say that it was quite humbling.  I would be lying if I said there was not a small part of me that wondered if I could make Graveyard, or even head back home.  But then the impact of F3 hit and I realized that I was the only one present to represent F3 Nation at Turning Point today.  If I did not move forward I would fail not only myself, but all of my F3 brothers and the F3 Nation.  If a post is planned, the show must go on.  I can’t say the 2nd F was very good (or present), but with the new Turning Point shovelflag planted firmly in Midway soil, I completed the workout.
