CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
You are highly valued!! Reminded each PAX individually that they are highly valued and are placed here and now for a specific purpose. We are highly valued by our Creator.
First time at AO Sandlot, loved it, a great urban jungle mixed with a dash of recreational sensibilities.
Performing the exercises on sand adds a whole ‘nother element of suck. We had to match the pace of the movements to our partners so that we’d end at the same time. This pushed both and kept us working together instead of a free for all followed by waiting on the 6. A few wise PAX started on the grass until QIC clarified that the rounds were to be wholly performed in the sand pit. However, the recent rain kept the full effect of the sand at bay. Almost splashed and no chaffing.
I really had a great 2nd F time watching the sun come up and hanging with the guys in good dinosaur conversation until after 0700.
Crucible. Ah, the Crucible is going to be soo difficult!!! (March 30)
