Surge’s Fuzzy Balls of Fury

YHC ventured out to Surge for my 2nd visit, and 1st Q. These dudes are beasts. Mumble chatter levels weren’t on par with The Hollow, or Detention, but that’s probably because they’re out there kicking tail and working relentlessly. Other AO’s take note, these guys aren’t messing around.

#TCLAPs to these PAX for putting in the extra work and ALL running Stride Lite. YHC was the only PAX who slacked off and missed out.

Conditions: 74 and with a nice breeze to start


The Thang:

Mosey around parking loop to get blood flowing, circle up in bus loop

Count off into 1’s and 2’s, team up

Round 1: Each team holds a people’s chair. Last man wins a burpee ball for his team. The PAX took ages to start faltering… YHC had to improvise … after about 3 minutes, each PAX had to keep one foot off the ground during the chair, this resulted in a tie between team 1 and 2 (still took too long! great work!!)

Round 2: Each team holds 6 inches just above the ground, last man with his feet off the ground, wins a burpee ball for his team. Team 2 took this one home.

Round 3: Each team holds balls to the wall. Last man wins the last burpee ball. Team 2 take this one as well, though it was, really close. Good work, Wee Wee.

The games:
Fuzzy Balls of Fury

2 sets of 9 cones with tennis balls on top are arranged down a line around 50 ft long. Each ball has an exercise on it. Each team sends a PAX to fetch a ball, that PAX comes back and then the WHOLE team has to perform the prescribed exercise. The next PAX may then go and get the next ball, once the WHOLE team is done. The first team to clear all cones of balls and finish the reps is declared the winner. The Twist: Each team had the burpee balls that they earned earlier… they use those to sabotage the other team. When a PAX leaves to fetch the next ball, he can take a burpee ball and place it on the other team’s cones. At some point that team will need to remove that ball and complete the burpees.

The exercises were 40 reps each, except for the lap around the parking lot.

Team 2 won by a slight margin, even though they only had to perform 7 burpees, as opposed to team 1’s 25 burpees. Who’re the real winners here??

Cone Flip game:

5 cones are placed in a line. 3 cones are face up, 2 cones are upside down — advantage to the team that lost the previous game. Each team will form a line roughly 30 yards away. The first PAX for each team runs to the line, turning a cone either up or down. (Team up vs. Team down). Once flipped, the PAX will sprint back to their line and tag the next PAX. Play continues until all cones are flipped either face up or down. Play stops the moment the line of cones faces the same direction or until time is called.

The twist for this game was YHC calling different methods of movement to the cones like bear crawl, broad jumps, sprints, back pedals, etc.

There wasn’t a clear winner here, as time was called. Despite the shenanigans of multi-cone flips, and mysterious extra tennis balls, both teams were pretty evenly matched.

Time called, back to flag for COT
