At roughly 6:00 AM YHC decided to have PAX meet up by the flag for a ring of fire known as Howling Monkeys.

Howling Monkeys! Howler Monkeys Howling Up a Storm at Brevard Zoo

YHC instructed everyone to gather in a circle and grab their ankles in a Monkey Humper fashion. The first person, YHC, does 10 Monkey Humpers followed by the next person and so on. This is going to burn! PAX did 2 rounds.  In the first round each PAX was asked to name their favorite band and in the second round each PAX was asked to name something they were thankful for. Sure enough after round 1 there was grumbling with relief – when YHC said ” WE ARE NOT DONE!” There was obvious chatter as ” Tapps, you got to be kidding!” YHC was not kidding – hence the name Howling Monkeys!

Before our next event – we got some Imperial Walkers, Copperhead Squats and some killer merkins named by Canoe. Canoe I did not enjoy those one bit! And now onto Dodge The Pickle!

Dodge The Pickle! 

Beatdown concluded with YHC calling all PAX over to play a game called Dodge The Pickle!  Spin a bottle – whoever it points to is allowed to throw all the pickle balls  in a bucket at the PAX as they try to run away and not get hit. The person who got chosen got to spin the bottle next and whoever it landed on got to throw the pickle balls at the group as they tried to get away. However,  the person who got chosen  to spin the bottle chooses a 5 count exercise for the PAX  before trying to run and get away from getting Dodged by the Pickle! Lots of laughs by all!

PAX moseyed to the flag with a few minutes of MARY!  Michael Ahrens was a FNG today and he was named Honest Abe!

Thank you for allowing me to lead this morning in the gloom!  Love you brothers!
