Tourney Notes:

  1. Impressed, but not amazed that Jack Webbs won the tourney. I did a similar tournament 2 years ago at #F3Sirius and the winner there was also Jack Webb. At first thought you’d probably guess that SSH or something easy would win, but at second thought you realize that F3 men don’t usually like easy. #nosadclowns
  2. Unfortunately @Stromboli wasn’t here to enjoy the win, however 6 of the 16 Qs represented in the tourney were present, even though they had no idea they were competing. #gottashowtoknow
  3. Two of the rounds today had an 8 to 8 tie in voting, luckily that allowed the ref (YHC) to tie-break. #stripesandwhistlehaveprivilege
  4. YHC did his best impression of Ed Hochuli this morning with a size Small referee shirt. #Ifeelmanly
  5. Lots of 2nd F today due to the format of the 1-minute exercises and no cadence, also due to the fact that we were at #TheGeneral (@Shoe, @Kingfish, @Outlaw, etc.) #hecklersrule
  6. When partner exercises are called, the typical next question is, “does size matter?” We learned that is a critical question for Partner Tea Bag Throwdowns. #thanksGump
  7. So who is General William Haines Lytle?  I recommend checking out his Wikipage (, but for the full effect please download “One Shining Moment” to play while you read. #everythingonwebistrue
  8. Speaking of songs, not too shabby with the group National Anthem! #tonedeaf
  9. YHC had a lot of fun running the tourney today. Thanks to @Shoe for taking us out with a classic prayer which was taught from the Man himself, Jesus. #OurFather

    Ahoy! Three posts for me in #Isotope land this week brings back lots of memories and familiar faces. By the way, who do I send my gas receipts to?

    Did Skipper wear a head band? I believe the last time I saw him in his referee shirt with whistle was back in the old days in the OakHURT pool parking lot where he might’ve been doing a Tiabata Apollo Ono.

  3. Alabama

    Great to see I made the final four except it was for an exercise I don’t even remember doing!
