Four Portals of Tiger Lane
THE SCENE: It was dark and warm. In the distance, a gaggle of PAX were seen running down Hollywood, migrating south from the Old Forest.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER: These happened, Cheesesteak! Get off my case!
We assumed the plank position, and YHC asked the PAX what they thought the concept of being a High Impact Man meant. We talked about making a positive impact on our communities and neighbors. Then we talked about how making an impact usually comes through intentional relationships.

Pair up! PAX were instructed to discuss and name two individuals whom they want to impact in some way – maybe a child, maybe wife or girlfriend, maybe a neighbor. Loooooong mosey with your buddy to Tiger Lane – good chatter.
At the Four Portals, we each selected a section of portal wall and did the following:
Jump-up burpees (burpee in front of the wall, jump onto the wall at the end of the burpee) x15
Incline Merkins x15
Rinse and repeat with 10 reps then 5 reps.
Mosey over to grassy expanse for a little burpee catch-me-if-you-can.
Same partners, P1 heads downfield running backwards. P2 does 3 burpees then chases down P1. When P2 is caught, he does 3 burpees while P1 runs backwards. Etc until we reach the sidewalk at the end. Rinse and repeat going back the other direction.
Mosey over to fountain, whose walls are 2-3 times as tall as the portals. 25 derkins OYO.
Loooong mosey back to the rugby pitch with your partner. PAX were instructed to tell their partner one action they would take this week to impact the people they identified earlier. I said I would take my oldest son out somewhere to talk about becoming a man and being responsible and reliable. I also said I’d have a conversation with a widow at church about her finances and what kind of support she needs.
We stopped at the rugby field for some Mary.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
8 PAX, no FNGs
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC encouraged the PAX to follow through on the actions they talked about with their partner, and to hold each other accountable over the next week.
The Sandlot never disappoints, mainly because the PAX never disappoint. Prayers for Alcy Ball Development Corp, who are trying to buy a house to use for offices. Prayers for the PAX to be active and productive at work and home. Some got Squatober reps in after the pic, then we headed to the nearest donut shop.
