The Week in Review:

M: 70 T: 63, W: 55, Th: 68, F: 62, Weekend: 65 = 383 Total Posts!

Club 345: Cheers to the 3 PAX this week that posted every day and twice on Saturday! Mom’s Kitchen (Andrew S), Rudy (Kelly O’Leary), & Yoga Splash (Matt Neil) earned another stripe for their decorated CMUs.

Club 345 Streak: The current 345 streak sits at 6!! Which PAX will step up this week to extend the streak another week?

Highlights for This Week:

  • The F3 Memphis in May Challenge has been announced details below from our 1stF Q Average Joe (Jimmy Madeksho).
  • The Annual F3 Memphis Crawfish Boil has a date (June 3rd), a time (3 – 6 PM), and a location (locHTe’s house), and a planning committee ready to go. Details below from our 2ndF Q, Scarecrow (JT Pitner).


From the Desk of our Nantan, Turkey Leg:

  • Across The Nation – May challenge is back: and
    • So far we have 14 teams signed up representing F3 Memphis.
  • Tentpole will be rolling out some “initiatives” etc – May time frame – stay tuned. Mission is simple – plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership. This will be POD based as we communicate it.
  • I’m still offering a direct Nan’tan (or regional manager vibe as Hobby Lobby (Hater of CMUs) would say) challenge to hit 100 PAX on a single date (or more) in May. I have the punishment in mind if we hit it.

1stF Magnet Flag Challenge Update: Congratulations to AO-Reaper on earning a weighted score of 42.5 and earning the 1st F Magnet Flag Challenge for the month of April. With 2 FNGs, 1, Kotter, and 1 VQ (Daisy Duke), they were able to hold off a formidable challenge from AO-Old Forest with 30 points (1 FNG, 1 VQ, and 2 Second Post PAX).

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.

Q Source Weekly Weinke

Get Right – the first step of personal alignment – a Leader takes the Daily Red Pill – his commitment to accelerate his fitness, fellowship and faith.

Mammon – the sustaining relationship between a man and his work. Work is good for a man, but should be his least important relationship (M, Shorties, Shieldlock, Whetstone, Mammon). Though tempting (Jester) given it’s quick affirmation, it can easily rob your attention from enriching the lives of those you love. Keep first things first
