Whetstone Discussion at ManU

    • When: 03/29/18
    • QIC: Reborn
    • The PAX: Popeye, Roxanne, Aqualung, Kenyan (R), Herbie, Ponytail (R), Big Fundamental, Smiley Face, Cracker Jack, Apache, Jester, Anchor Bar (R), Italian Job, Reborn

When asked by Italian Job to Q on this date, I had my reservations at first. It was only going to be 4 days from the end of the P200 and I honestly did not know if I would want to after running 36-miles over the weekend. However, I had also planned to Q at Old Town on the 26 of March, only 1 day after the P200, so I really had no excuse. Also, it was my 42nd birthday.

Well, ManU is the AO where Italian Job allowed me to lead a warmup around 2-years ago and is also the same AO where I Q’ed my first full Workout (Goats & Sheep if you are interested).

After YHC gave the F3 Disclaimer and we discussed the 5 Core Principles of F3 we began a mosey over the fountain for our Warmup.


All in Cadence: Side Straddle Hops, Derkins, Dips, Irkins, & Step Ups. We then started our mosey over to the Manchester Park playground pavilion for the following:


At the playground we partnered up. Partner 1 ran around the park and Partner 2 performed the following:

Wide Arm Merkins, Low Slow Squats, LBC’s, Carolina Dry Docks.


We then moseyed to the Main Manchester Office Complex and kepts our partners. I asked the PAX to rememeber the following exercises and only discuss the exercises with their pantners, nobody else. The exercises performed were the following:

Merkins, Lunges, V-Ups, Dips.

We then took a mosey back to the fountain where we perfomed multiple exercises OYO (to many to rememeber). We then moseyed back to the COT.

The whole purpose of this was to show the level of Mumblechatter at each location (See NMM below).

On Monday I handed over the shovel flag of Old Town to Canseco. It was an honor to be asked to serve as the Site Q 8-months ago by Burgundy, and it has been an honor to lead there. I appreciate the oppourtunity I have had and I know that Canseco will only make that AO better.

So, now what for Reborn? It has been on my heart a while now that our Region is doing well when it comes to WO’s and attendance. However, I have often wondered how men are doing emotionally and spiritually. I know some are struggling and are even searching for another man to reach out to. I know this is true because it is just a fact of life.

F3 has a program to help with just that. It is called Whetstone. If you sign up for Whetstone, you are paired with another PAX with whom you share your life with, pray with, and lean on in both good and bad times. In April YHC will be taking over the role of Whetstone Q for the Rock Region. I want to encourage you to sign up for the program to be paired up with another with whom you can sharpen yourself with.

A PreBlast will be coming out soon, so be on the lookout.
