Hammer Time #34 – Where are the backblasts?

Man F3 Raleigh is getting slack on the backblasts. 4 years ago, there was a backblast for nearly every workout. Now we’re seeing maybe one a week for all of Raleigh. Yes writing a backblast is a pain in the ass. Yes many are boring. Like mine. However, they can have tremendous value giving PAX ideas when leading a site. This is probably the primary reason for publishing them. I always liked reading who showed up at a workout, what the group did and where they went. We learn about serious issues our PAX are dealing with so we can pray for them. The power of prayer is incredible. Once in a while there is an awesome story that simply deserves to be told and retold. I miss the backblasts. Step up. Lead. And later in the day, write a damn backblast! We’ll all be better for it.

9 PAX showed up this morning ready for work. After two previous leads without any toys, I decided to bring back the trailer full of tires and a trunk full of sledgehammers. Here’s what went down.
