The Fortress


Boot camp style workout. At Woodland Park. Two large Playgrounds, Frisbee Golf Course, 1 Mile Dirt Track, HUGE Field.  Plenty of space here to craft a diabolical smokefest for even the strongest PAX.

Park at Grace Church off of East Boundary Drive.

SATURDAYS always followed up with 2nd F (fellowship) at Lamplight Cafe and Bakery located at 121 W. Indiana ave. Great opportunity to get to know members of F3 Black Swamp and refuel from the workout.

    Backblast – July 3, 2021
    AO: The Fortress – Grace Church/Woodland Park – Perrysburg, OH
    QIC: Geppetto
    PAX: Isosceles, Huckleberry, Jennay, Chanel, Solo, Callahan, Lego, Doubtfire, Fossil, Nitrous, Hannibal, Roundup, Strudel, Venom, Geppetto, Enron, Peach, Eli “Oil Change” Reichenbach (FNG), Jim “Patron” Deering (FNG)
    Workout: “We Hold These Truths…”

    Two FNG’s this morning so I took extra time with them explaining F3, what it stands for and our Principles. Thinking about it now, I did not state the Mission of F3. Big error on my part. No FNG’s so right into Mission and Principles:
    F3 – Fitness, Fellowship, Faith
    Missed the Mission Statement!
    The core principles of F3 are that it must:
    Be free of charge
    Be open to all men
    Be held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
    Be led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary. You versus you. Modify or stop an exercise if you need to. The most important thing is that nobody gets hurt.
    End with a Circle of Trust

    The Thang:

    The Six – Doubtfire – Eh’d by Heisenberg. Worked out before F3 but the accountability wasn’t there. Now, he knows when that alarm goes off there are going to be men anticipating that he will be at the workout. Loves the support and caring he gets from the group.

    Announcements: Tentative ribbon cutting for the Inclusive Playground is set for July 17th.

    BOM: Q read the following:

    “The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

    BOM w/prayer:Prayers for Doubtfire’s wife Jodi. Prayers for Strudel’s niece. Prayers for everyone’s safety this holiday weekend. Prayers for those that defend our freedom.
