CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
A true HIM serves others. We continually talk about this in F3, as we should, because as true men we should serve our families, our coworkers, our friends, and our community. The great thing about F3 is that I see brothers not just talking the talk but walking the walk. The 3rd Anniversary Celebration for F3 Knoxville was a great example. Brothers like Lazy Boy and Abscess got up early to make sure the grounds were prepared for us. Brothers like Hooker and Edit, who, because of injuries could not compete, were manning some of the Brolympics stations, keeping score and cheering us on. Brothers like Junk. Abscess and Lazy Boy were out at the picnic area on Sunday, several hours ahead of time, smoking our meals. I am not mentioning all the other brothers who pitched in time and equipment to help out. Another cool thing about F3: there are ALWAYS brothers volunteering to help, whether with setup or cleanup.
It was also awesome to see F3 Brothers serving their families. All those dads out there with their kids, running with them, hopping with them, tumbling with them, and laughing with them. It was wonderful to meet wives and partners of our brothers – some great folk that were easy to talk to.
We have something special with F3 Knoxville. And if we maintain our pledge and duty to serve our community, there is no telling what directions we will go. One direction will be to Cleveland, TN on Saturday, November 17 when Abscess and other brothers will head there to help launch another F3 AO. Join them if you can.
AO launch in Cleveland on Saturday, November 17.
