-Announcements, prayer requests, and Shout Out.


-Apparently the new Top Gun trailer did not motivate too many PAX to come out on a Saturday but T-CLAPs to those who did show and this routine will be back soon.

-Buckeye ordered Snowflake to watch Top Gun before returning to college.  Extra Credit, watch Red Dawn too.

-Flea, now fully recovered from the P200 ultra, put in a solid effort and it was great to have him back among the PAX #kotters

-Joker, with no shortage of one-liners, said to YHC during the Thang “You’re writing a check this body can’t cash!”

-Peaches kryptonite is the crabwalk but he crushed the rest.

-I Feel The Need For Speed!

-As always, an honor and pleasure to lead.

Buckeye Out
