The Thang

-The pax started in the middle by doing 5 burpees.  They would then carry the coupon overhead to each  corner and back to the middle.  At the corners they would do coupon curls.  They started at the first corner with 10 coupon curls and added one curl with each successive corner.  Every time the pax came back to the middle they would do 5 burpees.  After the pax made it to all four corners and back they would run one lap around the park.  This sequence was continued until about 5 minutes left in the workout.  The goal was to make it through 4 rotations.  However, most of the pax made it through 3 rotations with Bart Simpson making it quite a ways into the fourth rotation.  The curls continued to add up from one sequence to the next.  Thus, after 3 rotations, the final corner would have been 21 coupons curls.

Leaders Message

-Just as all of the armed forces veterans represented at this park have sacrificed so much, so we can do what we do, we all have other examples of people in our lives that have sacrificed for us, such as our parents, or often many others.  Never forget to tell them how much you appreciate what they have done for you.
