Back on the Horse

Posted on

YHC signed up to Q The Rabbit well before the dreaded injury bug struck again (will the third time be the charm?). I’d been on the fence about whether to keep the Q or not but with the knee at about 90% and having posted at the THicket a week prior, I knew it was […]

Butt Sweat and Tears

When YHC pulled into the parking lot a crowd had already gathered. With Duplo arriving we knew it was time to get going. We’d go back […]

Cinematic Anniversary

Posted on

Two years ago, 12 men ventured into new territory to launch The Thicket. Today 23 PAX — who now have nine AOs in that once new territory of Chatham County — celebrated the anniversary in cinematic fashion.
