We discussed accountability today. It is important to be accountable and reliable – PAX post with the expectation that there will be a group to work out with, and fortunately this is nearly always the case. Are you doing your part to make sure that happens? Fartsacking lets yourself down and lets the other guys down. Stay engaged!

For those few of you who have not yet signed on – get onto BAND today, either via smartphone app (links here: apple / android), or via the website. This is our new preferred Comz Channel going forward – download it and join the band called “F3 Houston” to get all the info on F3 Houston. Here is where you can learn who are the upcoming Qs, sign up yourself to be the Q, read our Backblasts for each WO, learn details of our next CSAUPs, and as usual, make fun of the guys in the Pax in general with some good ol’ Mumble Chatter.

Thanks for the chance to lead and push myself.
