• Summertime Quacken PM workouts start tonight at 1800, and Monday morning workouts will cease until Autumn. Lizzy is the Monday PM Q.
• Flag hand off at Big Ball this Thursday, Drive-thru to Postman.
• Convergence and GTE this weekend at Asylum. F-3 Knoxville is doing a canned food drive in conjunction with the convergence. Z-Pack will collect the canned food donations at the Quacken, and he will turn it in at the convergence.
• Also this Saturday as part of the convergence there will be a Nant’an transition from KickFlip to Mermaid.

I am thankful for FixerUpper and the PAX.
Fixer EH’d me in December 2022.
I’ve made friends – guys like Fixer, Lizzy, Wedding Singer, and others and we’ve carried each other’s burdens here at the Quacken through prayer.
My fitness has greatly improved and I feel more equipped in leadership.
At the least I want to maintain what Fixer and the PAX have built over the last year and a half. My goal is to grow this AO and do more fun fitness, fellowship and faith stuff together. We will do these things at the Quacken as we pursue the mission of invigorating male community leadership.

A scripture to encourage us in F3,
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
New International Version
9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Prayer time.
