Krazy Ivan 2018

By | January 22, 2018
PAX:THE Manny, Turbo Tax, Butt Splice, Steve, Backdraft, Carpool, Tanked Up, Sea Bass, Burgundy, Hawgcycle, Bushwacker, Triple Shift, EiEi, Shooter, Captain Sparkles, Gabrielle, Pelican, M*A*S*H*, Fracsac, Turtle

The events depicted in this Backblast are completely stupid and utterly pointless.  Any similarity to events which are neither stupid nor pointless is purely coincidental.   No animals were harmed in the running of the Krazy Ivan. The Inagural Northshore Krazy Ivan CSAUP went off as planned, sort of.  The Northshore won, the Southshore whined, and… Read More »

PAX:Backdraft, Beans, Bogey, Cowbell, Crab Legs, Jingle Vader, Milkman, Rudy, Tool, Triple Shift

Night time.  Strange how the DST change has made the night more gloomy than the morning.  But 10 PAX arrived in the evening gloom for a workout topped off with a few brews.  #Tclaps especially to Triple Shift and Jingle Vader, for whom this was their second F3 beatdown of the day.  #NegativeTClaps to Fracsac. … Read More »
