QIC: no-ski
PAX POSTED: no-ski, dillio

2 PAX posted this AM for the in the Gloom Beatdown. Dillio got in just in time, so we won’t question his car parking abilities here today :).

As we did our mosey on the second warmup round, DBA made a quick special appearance with his daughter to make sure that YHC wasn’t running an UNO beatdown today. Many thanks for checking in on us! Hope your back recovers quickly, so you can enjoy the beatdowns with everyone else soon.

It was a lovely morning. Temperature was about 77 degrees and not so humid. Flag was planted and the beatdown went according to plan.
