Koldplay and Kettlebells

  • When: 01/14/19
  • QIC: Ace Ventura
  • The PAX: Avalanche, Buckwheat, Easy Rider, Jackpot, Forgotten Jelly, Hammer, Oboe, Robin's Nest

9 PAX met on this chilly morning hovering at a balmy 34 degrees. YHCs sinuses have been thrashed with kold + low humidity (higher humidity is the ONLY thing I miss about Western New York in the Winter…and the food!), but with a forecast of 90% humidity, it was time to get out there. To celebrate, the PAX were met with some tunes from Koldplay to keep it punny. Oboe showed some dance moves making Travolta jealous. Avalanche, Buckwheat and Forgotten Jelly decided to use megakettles. I think Jackpot said he was coming back out for good! Good to see Easy Rider back from his European tour. Hammer incorporated a little Skedaddle with his Liberty Skemettle. Robin’s Nest seemed moderately amused throughout (I think he needs a pood and a half gorilla KB!!! See link). After a quick disclaimer it went down something like this:
