It was a cool and rainy morning but that didn’t stop 11 PAX from posting at the Tavern.  No FNG’s were present so a quick disclaimer was given and we got after it.

We then moseyed over to the HT parking lot and around the shopping center. I intended to do our workout in the middle of the parking lot but the rain picked up as we came around the front of the shopping center which led us to stop in front of the Step South Dance studio.  Then I broke out my trivia Weinke and engaged the PAX in a mental and physical beatdown.  The trivia format was based around Batman lore and included comics, TV shows, movies, and video games with multiple choice answers for each question.  Taking direction from previous trivia workouts by the incomparable Italian Job, there were specific exercises depending on if the question was answered correctly or not. I’ve bolded the correct answer and the exercise we did.

Once I had gone through all 20 questions we moseyed over to the VA center where we recited the Pledge of Allegiance.

There was still a few minutes to fill so we did some arm burn.  This is a series of arm exercises in cadence and one’s arms may not be lowered until the Q has completed each exercise: small circles forward and back, big arm circles, straight up circles, presses, overhead claps, Moroccan night clubs, seal claps, butterfly.

YHC then gave a word on sacrifice.  I has struck me over the years how Batman will readily risk his life to save another, even if that person is an enemy.  This brought to mind John 15:13 – No one has greater love than this, that someone would lay down his life for his friends.

This does not have to mean physical death for the one who sacrifices but instead putting aside ones own desires for the benefit of ones they love.

As it was still raining, I gave the PAX the option to do our name-o-rama under the shelter at the VA Center or in the rain.  We decided to do it in the rain before wrapping up with our announcements, and prayers.

I supremely enjoy being on Q and recognize it as a privilege to lead a fine group.  Shout out to everyone who posted and to Pescador for allowing me to lead.
