covid-19 inspired doomsday clock – as a point of interest the real life doomsday clock is currently set to 100 seconds, its closest to midnight since the clock was started in 1947.

Socially distanced COT

announcements – everything is cancelled except what isn’t; beatdowns will continue in person socially distanced on the normal schedule as well as virtually via backblast; Lavender is investigating opportunities for virtual poker



prayer – let us be grateful and thankful for our health and the opportunity to be outside. Let us be thinking about those less fortunate or at risk and how we can help. This is an opportunity to, while physically separate, emotionally come together to innovate and solve problems facing our community and world.

As a personal note, I thought the second F was especially strong today and the chatter is good and important. Let’s be thinking about how we can improve and maintain our second F even while socially distanced and/or quarantined. It’s important for both our mental/emotional wellbeing and in ensuring we come out of this crisis stronger than we were before it.
