31+ men came together wearing far fewer clothes than they had earlier in the week. With temps almost 50 degrees warmer it was possible to recognize each other. However Spooky showed up to Q dressed like death (minus the sickle) to deal out the pain. One FNG so disclaimer given and we were off. COP […]

Because the Triple Q a month ago was so well received, it was time for the Quad Q. Thus a PAX of 20, plus four Qs, embarked on a morning that hinted Fall is right around the corner. Cool breeze, dark skies, and determined men.   Warm Up Lo Pair briefed the FNGs with a disclaimer and then led […]
