Mosey to the top of The Stairs, Plank for the 6

  Wounded Bear Crawl the cul-de-sac

Mosey down the stairs, the plan was to return to the AO until mumble chatter lead Mad Cow to pontificate that we still had time for another trip on the stairs….so the Q lead the PAX another trip up and down the stairs before the final mosey back to the AO.

At the AO, Pax completed:

  Cheerleader Merkins (Three Pax planking shoulder-to-shoulder, 2 Pax completing inclined Abyss Merkins in the gap between the 3 Pax, putting their hands on the 3 Pax’s shoulders during the merkins. Complete 5 merkins, rotate positions).

Bart Simpson was offered the opportunity to choose his own adventure and pick the next exercise from a list read by the Q. Bart Simpson selected an exercise the Q added to the list as he read the other options:

Bridge of Hate – All Pax but one, Mad Cow, were on their 6, shoulder to shoulder. Mad Cow started at one end of the Pax line, was lifted and passed (think crowd surfing) down the line of Pax until he reached the last Pax. Mad Cow then joined the end of the Pax line on his 6, and the next Pax crowd surfed down the line.  Or rather, that’s how it’s supposed to work. As it turned out on this occasion, the Pax had to resort to dragging and pulling Mad Cow across their bodies while he army crawled over their desolate corpses.  This exercise was then abandoned.



  War Hammer
