Hey brother,
Thanks for the add. Enjoyed your comments in the Start Water group. Profile pic is great, but I didn't know you had 300' sticks in Seattle. Looks like your on top of the world.

Hey Kris I just read your post about training ideas and the deck of cards drill. I am a big supporter of the BASICS. Would you mind putting this drill in the group Company Drills so that others can use it? Great drill...

Glad you enjoyed it. I also believe that the training is very good overall. What did you think about the question and answer session after the evolutions?
