COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Three years ago Dec. 2, 2017 A-Rod took a chance to start a new AO for F3Knoxville in Powell, TN. In that COT, he stated that as men we were not designed to operate alone. We need a community and to work together. Three years later, the Brickyard AO is still here and we have come together. We have added and lost men over the years, but we are not the same as we were the first day we stepped out. Part of the ideal of F3 is Iron sharpening iron. At the Brickyard, we may not speak in the most politically correct ways but we push and help one another to be better. I know that I am a better man for coming in the gloom and being shoulder to shoulder with these PAX. A-Rod had a prior commitment today (rucking long distance with 60lbs) so he asked if I would share his words as well:
Three years ago I started this AO and knew only one FNG was going to show up. I knew other F3 men were coming from other AOs to support me, but didn’t know if there would be any turnout. I was pleasantly surprised! Not all who helped start Brickyard are still participants, but we have a very strong group that show up and that encourage each other. Thank you for making F3 Brickyard the fun and challenging AO that it has become. Thank you for supporting me and now Herbie as we lead you. Continue to make this AO great by volunteering to lead and bring others out with you.
Brickyard was made by a normal (barely athletic) guy so that other men could find friendship and better themselves physically. It has worked but only because of your involvement. I look forward to steering our way through 2021 as a group and supporting each other through the coming challenges of the year.
Thanks again for your commitment!
Strength and Honor
