After last week’s cancellation due to bad weather, YHC had the privilege of kicking off Whiplash’s 2017.  17 PAX joined in the celebration.  Welcome Deuce from New Bern.  Mid-to-upper 40 degree temps this Saturday morning, after enduring a week that went from near single digits on Monday morning up to 70+ by Friday. <some joke about how long to wait “if you don’t like the weather around here”>
