The Thang

Explained their role to the ruckers (Hummer and LinkedIn), then all other PAX headed out for the Parkside clubhouse. Divide into teams: Dreamliner, Dirt Bike, and Cash Flow vs Gator, Moneyball, and Marvel.

Virginia Run’Em Poker: Each team’s bucket is in front of the Parkside Clubhouse. All PAX seek out the ruckers who have a deck of cards. Grab a card and take it to opposing team’s bucket. Rinse/repeat until time is called or cards run out. Best 2/3 hands of 5 cards for each team wins.

Ruckers: Headed out after their role was explained; down Bennet’s Creek Road to Parkside circle, kept going around until their time to head back. Gave a running PAX a card every time they came to them, and switched directions several times to confound the runners plans.

Mosey to flags

Reverse Indian Run: All PAX mosey single file around the turnaround in the parking lot, first PAX turns around and runs a faster pace until he meets the line. Finish once all PAX have a chance at the faster pace.

Teams then assembled their 3 hands. Team 2 won with two flushes and a full house compared to Team 1’s Four of a Kind, full house, and two pair.


Winning team got to pick Theresa: Sitting Toe Grab (each side), Partner-Support Quad Stretch (aka the “Roman Fountain” or the “Flamingo Tango”), “The Archeologist.”


James 4:1, 6:What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
  • YHC encouraged the PAX to consider where the source of conflict within their groups and within themselves is coming from: what are the desires/passions driving them? Then consider how to humble their own desires to the desires of others, for then God promises to give more grace.

Ball of Man


  • Considering the competition in play, the obligatory “take a dump in the other team’s bucket” joke was made, along with the deeming of such action to be a “Royal Flush.”
  • The Ruckers (following suggestions by YHC) switched directions several times, resulting the calculations of the runners being thwarted on more than one occasion.
    • In theory, no runner should have run more than a halfway around Parkside Circle. In practice, that happened multiple times.
  • YHC did not think the PAX would make it through all 52 cards in a single deck, otherwise he would have included a second deck.
  • It warms the cockles of one’s heart to see Moneyball and Theresa reunited.


  • Moneyball is looking to do another 2nd F disc golf get together and a 2nd F golf event. BOLO for more details.
