Shawshank Celebrates the 12 “Cards of Christmas”

Conditions:  Cold 29 Degrees

The Thang:  It’s always a challenge to Q Shawshank.  These brothers really bring it and like a few surprises.  Trying to get a little creative, but also keep the Pax warm on this very cold morning in the gloom.  8 Pax appeared with a pleasant surprise visit from Alter Boy. Plus, 2 Pax for Stridelite.
