49°, Cool & Cloudy
Dip City (AO Expansion – Downtown)
Lake Shore Park
PAX: Homer, Noonan, Rancid
YHC arrived a half hour ahead to find parking and scout the AO. First timer out here, y’all, and Google Maps images only get ya so far in planning! Noticed paper “Tow” signs posted right where I had initially stopped, so I got some EC by parking two blocks south then moseying in. Turns out, PAX are able to park on Chicago Ave directly alongside the park – good news for folks who drive-in!
Lake Shore Park is small yet mighty. Plenty of greenspace, dip/pull-up bars, park benches, running track, and direct access to the lake. Feels like Dip City is going to be seeing the shovel flag more often!
0530 – WELCOME, BROTHERS!

Planned to meet at CF for Mary, but PAX stayed put by the dip bars since we were closer to the exit, nearly at time. This turned into a most fortunate audible as the park field sprinklers turned on during the COT; dryness prevailed (for today…)!

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
― Albert Einstein
Don’t be afraid to make a mistake. Learning is growth, and in F3, growing is what we do.
Make the mistake. Accept the penance. (And it’s never too late to say you’re sorry!)
Thank you, Sky Q!
