Mambas vs. Average Joes at Screaming Eagle for some games. Bragging rights, the chain and a trophy up for grabs.

After 20 SSHs, some late arrivals joined us as we moseyed to the Beach Volleyball Courts where we had two concurrent 4x4ish Volleyball games and 1 Cornhole game going on at one time. There were maybe a few more Mambas than Average Joes but it basically worked out. 8 minute games and we rotated twice.

Volleyball Scoring A point when you with the point on your serve Team burpee whenever you lose a point (unless you're Teacher's Pet)

Cornhole Scoring 3 points in the hole, 1 point on the board. PAX hold plank when not scoring

Numbers were tallied and the exact numbers will live in infamy on Snooki's phone, but the reality is that Average Joe's beat the Mamba's by "more points".

T-Claps to Whaler who got MVP for some pretty incredible Cornhole skills

T-Claps to Southie for bringing his Manchester United cornhole boards, much to the chagrin of Liverpool fans Cookout and TP.

Welcome FNG "Sprinkler" who probably had the most diverse background and interesting introduction, but the sprinklers went off during Name-o-rama so we named him Sprinkler. That's just how we roll.

The podcast asked a very poignant question:

“If F3 Cape Fear disappeared today, would anyone outside of the PAX notice?”

We need to have servant hearts and be humble HIMS in our communities.
