Almost Got Through the Pinochle Deck…

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City Arrowhead (Indian Trail)

…if it weren’t for those pesky runs.  A breezy 52 degrees when 6 PAX joined the fun. A pinochle deck of cards can be good or bad, depending your perspective. Only 48 cards, but every card is in there twice, and the lowest card is a 9. Yeah, so, here we go.

DISCLAIMER

COP

Dynamic warm-up as we moseyed to the swingsets

  • SSH IC x10
  • Seal claps IC x10
  • Mtn man poopers IC x10
  • Willy Mays Hays (the wrong way) 10ct ea side
  • Imperial walkers IC x15

THE THANG
We drew the cards at the swing set.  (An optional modify in parentheses)

  • Hearts – Merkins (merkins on knees)
  • Diamonds – V-ups (BBSU)
  • Clubs – Underdogs (just bend your knees more)
  • Spades – Squats (modify up to squat jumps)
  • Aces – run up the first part of the hill, sprinting the straight part, mailbox to curve. Loop around, back to swing set

The runs took some time.  We finished 41 cards. Mortal Kombat was not suggested by YHC.
