The mission of The Oak this year was to bring the PAX together for fellowship and strength in Relationship. we have seen the past Oak Events benefit families and communities in need. This event was about understanding that our relationships with each-other keep us coming out to crazy things like this and pushing hard to help the man to our side who may need it. We are in a unfortunate time where we have a couple of brothers who are in need and we dont quite know how to be available to them yet. As we learned with our brother Picasso, situations do not take long and certainly do not give the respect of a warning. This event, my intention was to create that awareness and be able to do some for many that need us at a moments notice and get the 6 as Summerville has become known to do.
1 Hour welcome party prior to heading out on the trail. Tinker kept the weinke organized while Stalker and YHC took turns granting the PAX wishes.

10 minute break for water and chow before heading out on the trail. We had pax team up for log carries, a 60lb sandbag, and a lovely spring present that was brought for a PAX by Stalker. Pax formed two columns and made their way down the trail for the hike. Along the way down the 7 mile hike there were 4 pain stations and 2 fundraising opportunities. Thanks to Tinker for recording everything.
25 Burpees on Q
25 – Squats on q
First audible at Mile 2:
10 Pull-ups for $0/ 5 Pull-ups for $5/ 0 Pull-ups for $10. (Stalker kicked in additional $1 dollar for every rep done by someone. He paid out another $45 total thanks to the light weighted Cheetah and City Slicker.
At this point the Pax had to be constantly reminded to keep close and the back half of the group was having an issue with that. So YHC stopped them on the trail and had them do 25 Burpees on Q as a penalty. YHC reminded them that there were not many plans for Burpees on the weinke but if they couldnt stay together then there will be plenty added.
