Quick DiCCS earlier than usual as I wanted to leave time to explain what we were doing.

Create teams of 4 for what would be a competition to see who could get the most “points”. The goal was to get a minimum of 2026 points which would be the birthday year of Jesus tomorrow (according to the internet). A quick mosey to the Nesbit circle where our directions/exercises were printed out and a crayon per team was left to keep track.

I thought I had planned for almost everything. What I didn’t plan for is that once Ice 9 heard competition, he sprinted to the awaiting sheets of paper and grabbed them all and took off running. I had to chase him down to ensure the rest of the pax knew what what to do.

Speaking of exercises and what pax were supposed to do, here is the sheet:

Lets Celebrate Jesus’ 2026 Birthday!
Get a minimum of 2026 points. Team with the most points wins.
Stop what your doing at 7:55 to meet back at COT no later than 8:00. There is a 10 burpee penalty if you are late.

I’m almost positive that posted thats in a format too hard to read so I will post it in the slack channel as well.

Basically there were 3 area to earn points. No one area would get you to 2026 points so you had to move. You also had to be strategic with your moves as the different areas provided different opportunities for points. While both areas offered running, Kensington offered slight more running and rock work while Millbridge was more exercise focused.

The winning team earned 2,900 points. Out team earned 2,100. Some teams didn’t break 2,000 but I think most were in the vicinity of 2,026 points.

Coffeteria: the coffeteria was awesome. Most who worked out stayed for at least 10 minutes. About half stayed for 30 minutes. It was a great social hour (45 minutes) with lots of cheer, conversation, and drinks flowing.

Thanks to all that came today and thanks to all that helped put on Coffeteria. I believe its the first time our numbers have doubled the temperature in Waxhaw.
