Johnson City Launch, Week 2

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City Iron Horse (Founders Park) Starfish Qs

F3 Lexington sent the A-Team to launch Johnson City last week. This week, Lexington’s Dream Team traveled to the mountains of east Tennessee in a big ol’ #ClownCar to pay it forward and assist our brother, Donatello. Following the successful expansion model, week 2 focus for this AM’s 22 pax was the #2ndF. 6 FNGs this AM added to the total of 24 FNGs since the Johnson City launch. That is strong! Major #Tclaps to Donatello.

-This AO is in the heart of JC, next to a market where a food truck was parked. We smelled doughnuts the whole time. FNG Beaker was kind enough to buy doughnuts for the traveling pax. They were amazing. Can’t stop thinking about them. Picture Krispy Kreme hot glazed but twice bigger & even better. Unbelievable.
-Can’t give Donatello enough praise for his efforts in getting Johnson City going. 24 FNGs in a week’s time needs to be recognized by all of F3 Nation.
-Blindside forgot his shoes but he was able to pick a #realnice pair of comfy Dr. Scholls from the local Wal-Mart. The velco straps were sweet.
-The #mumblechatter game is already pretty strong. Heard a ton of encouragement out there, too.
-At least half of today’s pax attended #coffeteria at Chick-Fil-a (this was after the beautiful doughnut experience). The #EH game is already strong with this group. The owner of CFA was EHd along with a local pastor. It was exciting to see. Think about it, these guys have experienced F3 for 7 days and they’re already excited to share it.
-YHC can’t thank enough the A-Team for last week’s launch and the Dream Team for this week. We have a blast with launches but it’s a lot to ask men to leave their families to travel 7 total hours. THANK YOU!
-Alter Boy, we retrieved your pretty bag from last week’s stay in JC.

-F3 Asheville is coming next Saturday for Week 3
-Don’t forget Tuesday bootcamp from 5:30-6:15
