YHC lead the men out in prayer, praying for all who showed up this morning and our brothers who could not make it asking God to guide them as they go into a new week.  Also prayed for any and all who struggle with stress or grief during the holiday season.

Naked Man Moleskin:

* Solid effort by Twinkie who showed up late but still managed to find us even though we were not in sight of the #Shovelflag

** Was supposed to be 3 rounds called Omaha due to time…also because these were HIGHLY EFFECTIVE


As always it was an honor and a privilege to lead such a great group of men.
