Preblast for the Week of May 29th

The Week in Review:

M: 65 T: 58, W: 55, Th: 56, F: 70, Weekend: 44 = 348 Total Posts!

4 FNGs (Welcome!): Knight Rider, Mouse, Ponzi, & Scuba Steve are the latest PAX to join our ranks. Give these HIMs a warm introduction the next time you post with them at a workout.

2 Willie Lomans (Welcome!): Baby Shark (F3 Houston) and Doppelganger (F3 Smokies) joined us during their travels this week.

Club 345 Streak: Due to our Memorial Day Weekend convergence the 345 streak is on hold with an 8 week streak. We’ll start tracking again this week. Who are the HIMs that are going to step up and keep the current streak alive?

Highlights for This Week:

  • The Annual F3 Memphis Crawfish Boil approaching. Join your fellow PAX on June 3rd from 3 – 6 PM at locHTe’s house. If you haven’t paid, you still have till Tuesday to hit that :hc: and send your money to Scarecrow (JT Pitner). Links for paying are in the #announcements channel.
  • The 3rd F portion of the annual crawfish boil is aiding Yo-Yo Ma’s (Ellis Rich) organization, World Relief. Please consider donating funds or goods to provide assistance to World Relief as they provide assistance to refugees new to Memphis. A list of requested donations is posted in slack.
  • Make plans to join Pablo (Chris Hardwick Sr.) for his 63rd birthday (DOUBLE RESPECT!!!) on Thursday this week at AO-Lair. This bootcamp will also include a 15 minute CPR lesson conducted by Murse (Collin Hardwick). Hit that :respect: emoji if you read this.

1stF Magnet Flag Challenge Update:

The May 1stF Magnet Flag is still very much in play. Currently AO-Mothership is in first place with 40 points with 1 Kotter and 2 Second Post PAX. Morg has had a strong week and is now in 2nd place with 32.5 points due to their 1 FNG, 1 Kotter, 1 VQ, and 1 Sophomore Q. Way to go Croissant (John Poissant) & Rogaine (David Long)! Remember, this is a weighted competition based on FNGs, Kotters, VQs, FNG 2nd Posts, and Sophomore Qs.

The individual F3 Memphis May challenge will be the same rules as the Rucking portion of the F3 National Team Challenge. Our top 3 points earners will win the “Ruck Around and Find Out” patch for their efforts.

2nd F: Fellowship

Checkout #2F-lunches if you want to grab lunch with your bros! Checkout out Events Calendar for more 2nd F.

The Annual F3 Crawfish Boil is a great opportunity for some 2nd and 3rd F! Bring the fam, eat some weird bugs (or hot dogs…but those are mostly for the 2.0s), and make a difference for Yo Yo Ma’s (Ellis Rich) employer, World Relief.

Purchase your “tickets” from YHC by May 30th, and lemme know if you have any questions. Can’t wait to have a blast and impact our community with you HIMs!!

Venmo & CashApp details are in Slack.

The East Memphis crew is getting the Spring calendar full for a number of 2ndF gatherings:

June 10th– Evan All Mighty (Noah Guess) will be hosting a family shindig from 6 pm – 8:30pm and food will be provided. Just bring your family and some drinks.

Don’t forget to let your friendly Weasel Shaker know if you’re planning an F2 event.

Get Right –> Live Right
Get Right is about a man getting himself back into proper alignment, and must be done first
Live Right is about seeking Purpose and IMPACT in the lives of those around HIM, which ironically helps him stay Right
