Conditions: pretty good – 43 and humid
Michael Phelps: 10
Merkins w/ locked elbows: 10

Mosey to track, pick-up coupon, meet at box office/concession stand
Each PAX dealt seven Uno cards
Red: squats w/ coupon
Yellow: curls w/ coupon
Blue: 4-count flutter kicks
Each time a PAX needed to draw one or more cards, all PAX rifle-carried coupons to the bleachers and waited while unlucky PAX ran up the bleachers (without coupon) to select one or more cards. This PAX then moved the draw pile up the bleachers one row. All PAX rifle-carry coupons back to concession stand.
Wild cards changed colors but came with four burpees
Wild cards +4 changed colors, came with eight burpees, and draw four for one PAX
Skip cards caused a mosey to the coupon storage area and back
Draw two cards came with two burpees and draw two for one PAX
Several “special” wild cards were in the deck; however, only one was played that resulted in one lap on the track
At 0600, all numbers on the cards were doubled for the exercise
Dreamliner wondered aloud how to do merkins with locked elbows; this shoulder warm-up exercise needs its own name in the exicon
Cash Flow seemed to be the unlucky recipient of most of the trips to the draw pile
There was much complaining about the time taken to draw cards as other PAX held coupons overhead
Planer used his trip to the draw pile to move the deck up several rows
Bing first discovered the “special” wild cards; speculation abounded about the Lawn Boy “hieroglyphics” on the cards; fortunately, the Gator suggested totem pole card never surfaced
Funny Car commented on the other card games Qs have brought in the past – e.g., F3 work out deck and normal playing cards with exercises for each suit (draw four at a time)

“My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging.” Hank Aaron (Feb 05, 1934 – January 22, 2021)
For F3 PAX – just keep coming back… it helps however you are feeling and whatever else is going on in your life.
