12 Days of Christmas Cont’d…

Eight of Tradition’s toughest met in the cool, wet gloom for a 12 Days of Christmas themed total body beatdown with a taste of cement.   I wasn’t at Mr. Belding’s bootcamp yesterday as I was working at 0500, but theme was inspiring.  It went a little something like this…

5) Announcement: Striker is coordinating a fellowship event on Wednesday evening, December 17th, starting at 6PM(?).  Bring guns and beer to The Range at Lake Norman.  I know, those two things don’t usually go well together…  $30 charge at door for range dues and free gun rentals.  $5 of your $30 cover will go to a local charity.  Hit the range and/or simulator for some target practice and fun!  Once your done shooting, drink up (BYOB).  All F3er’s welcome, experienced or not!
6) Tradition Christmas Party this Saturday, 7PM until….  I accidentally said 2.0’s welcome and encouraged.  I meant to say wives/significant others welcome and encouraged!
