MOLESKIN

YHC is traveling back to Nebraska for the remainder of 2021, so, naturally, we had to wring out as much holiday cheer as we could muster!

The challenges may have been brutal, but the PAX emerged stronger than ever – with plenty of smiles and laughter to help us through to the end.

LeMond led a brilliant Q Source on Shorties (Q1.6) in the Champagne Room at Starbucks. (No cars were towed in the making of this discussion!)

Next Q Source is Shield Lock (Q.1.7) led by Rancid on 1/8/2022.

May you each have a joyful holiday season filled with love, light, and intention!

Until next year –

SYITG!

Aye,

Rancid
