November 2nd F event held at Average Joe’s house in the North Kingdom on Friday. A good time was had by all!

Couch Potato Q’ed his final beatdown at AO-Annex on Friday before his move from Grind City to the Windy City. All the best to this HIM and his family as they begin their next chapter in Chicago!

If you follow F3 Memphis on social media (Facebook.com/f3memphis or Instagram), be sure to check out the PAX highlights posted there. Sharing these stories is another way to get the word out about F3 Memphis and potentially stir up some sad clowns to join us in the Gloom! So far there are highlights posted for Grimace, Landline, Tomb Raider, Stop Drop & Scroll, Yoga Splash, Ball Drop, Photoshop, Turkey Leg, TryCycle, Cheesehead, Slater, Baby Back, Evan Almighty, Rocket Launcher, Geppetto, Skinny Dipper, Moneyball, Scarecrow, Tinder, Boudreaux, Barnum, Spirit Stick, Gus & Upgrade. If you are willing to share your F3 story on social media, DM Boudreaux

Highlights for this week:
AO-Armory and AO-Wolf Convergence on Wednesday. Post at your AO of choice and mosey as a group to Municpal Park Pavillion (next to Germantown Athletic Center) for a joint beatdown, then mosey back to the respective Start X

Post-beatdown convergences are being held on Thanksgiving morning at Berm, Blazing Saddles, and Reaper

Berm will have sausage/eggs breakfast burritos following a Thanksgiving workout Q’ed by @Turkey Leg (1st F Mane). There will be additional food items on hand and a gallon of Orange Juice — you can chip in on these items or bring additional drinks. @Chef (Stefan Erdedi) will be bringing cheese dip/chips also. There will be, not one, but two fire pits to keep you toasty while you enjoy some 2nd F. Need an HC by Tuesday AM to ensure the appropriate amount of food.

Blazing Saddles will offer a potluck style post-beatdown breakfast, so far the list looks like this:

@Life Coach (Chris Leuck) coffee and pumpkin pie
@locHTe (Harris Todd) OJ
@Run DMC (Stephen McFadden) coffee and something
@Finkle (Kevin L.) mini cinnamon rolls

Go to the channel and sign up for what you plan to add. @Moneyball (Stephen Green) is cooking up the Q!

Check The Reaper’s channel for details on what’s happening there and how to get in on it!

Fitness Challenge is Back!
Looking at a push to finish the year strongThrough year end – cumulatively tracking anyone that logs Posts, Miles Ran, Miles Rucked, + Weight (so individual categories for each)
In Addition – tracking total Murphs completed prior to year end – its an excellent WOD that pushes you and helps increase overall fitness and a variety of muscle groups
Weekly – “Exercises” – starting with Thrusters/Burpees
The person with the most “weekly” (by Sunday night) gets to call the next week’s exercisesYou can enter your responses daily (or go back and select the date as needed). I won’t be logging anyones scores/posts so do it yourself. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScmDTPxFAHzV901NC8CbYQOa8GjWlbEMWXeuR8a5njFd5mswg/viewform?usp=pp_url
