Preblast for the Week of 8/20/18

Highlights for the week: One VQ (1040), service opportunity, two traveling workout options, Iron PAX, and a ruck sim!

Iron PAX Challenge:
We’re joining other F3 regions across the nation in a little friendly competition: who is the fittest PAX of them all. There will be weekly, timed challenges, and each PAX who participates will report his own results. Check Slack for more details. Cheesesteak is our Iron PAX Q.

New Region Plants:
We have the privilege of helping two new regions get off the ground. The mission of F3 is to plant, serve, and grow men’s workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership. We’ve been doing awesome planting new AOs in the Memphis area, and now it’s time to start branching out. In August, we’ll be helping launch F3 in Mobile, AL. Martin, TN launch has been pushed to October. Join the #plant channels in Slack to get in on the action.

F3 Mobile: Launching 8/18
Bottomless will Q 8/25 – Joining him are O Positive and Four Eyes.

F3 Martin: Launching in October
Memphis will Q dates are TBD. Free lodging will be available.

We’re also leading a Black Ops workout in Little Rock in the hopes of launching there soon – 8/25, Q’d by Bruce and Soybean. Some guys are clown car-ing that morning, so let us know if you’re interested.

GrowRuck 12, September 21-23:
If you’re wanting to sign up, but the cost is prohibitive, come to the ruck sim Saturday (details coming soon). We’ve got two free registrations to give away.

Read the updated, official event preblast here. This includes the full weekend schedule.

Registration is open! Go pay your deposit!  We are potentially being capped at 70 PAX unless registration jumps quickly in the next couple of weeks. Go ahead and HC. This is one time when FOMO is real and justified. You don’t want to be that guy the week after GrowRuck hearing all of our stories and lessons learned.

All 3 F’s will be out in full force. We sent nine HIM to Chattanooga last year for GrowRuck 05, and we all came home with stronger bonds as brothers, lots of personal lessons, and a greater appreciation of F3’s mission/vision and the IMPACT we can have on Sad Clown Syndrome in our community.
