The Yard Brings It in the Double-Plus Gloom

  • When: 12/18/2018 5:30am
  • VQ: Harlequin
  • The PAX: Sliverbullet, NPR, Whiskey (R), Boring, Vlasic, Rising Sun, Mr. Rogers, Slingblade (R), Aloha, Meat (R), Neutron, Fireball, Cheesesteak, YHC

Thick fog beckoned 14 PAX to #theyard for YHC’s VQ.  Thankfully The Mist spared us any dangerous creatures, but plenty of lumbering, odoriferous PAX were in evidence. The PAX was primed for a rewarding workout.

Conditions

Low 50s with some fantastically gloomy pea soup.
