The Tough Mudder -mando up
« on: May 15, 2013, 11:08 AM »
so it has come to my attention that the wounded warrior project doesnt accept charity money from just anyone... however the tough mudder is a funder for them. now several in Taakure Clan plan on undertaking this challenge sometime next year. and we want to officially invite any and all mercs to undertake this challenge with us (either at the same event as us, or across the us.)

we will take before and after pictures, and are openely challenging any mercs to undertake it with us. This charity also hits home for me, as i am a veteran and fully support what these people do. and who knows if we get enough interest in this perhaps we will do a challenge coin run for all those that partake in the event.

so lets get us a roster going people :)

IF YOUR TEAM INCLUDES (lets try to keep the alorads in charge of the teams here people)

      6 to 10 members, you each get a $5 refund!
      11 to 20 members, you each get a $10 refund!
      21+ members, you each get a $15 refund!

(looking at starting this event next year, giving everyone enough prep time and swag to be made and groups to be formed.)

I'm doing it in October in Aus, dressed as Deadpool ;) That's the plan anyway. There's a few folks down under who have been supporting Wounded Warrior with this for at least a year now.

A heads up,  Mercs will be instituting a Forum award for this, and other similar events. Criteria (at present) will be:

OM's only
Must complete event wearing Mercs shirt (or Clan shirt) Or full kit for you crazy crazy folks (MAV!)
Must have photo evidence of event completion, in said shirt
The event itself must sponsor a charity. IE, Tough Mudder donates to Legacy, whereas a lot of (generally easier) fun run style events require you to do your own fundraising for the cause they're supporting. Other eligible events could potentially include Warrior Dash, Spartan Race, that kind of thing.

We're working out a name for the award, I'd appreciate it if you could PM me suggestions, and any further brainstorming about criteria of events and eligibility.

Wish I was OM. I'd defiantly do it. Possibly full kit, minus weapons, maybe I'd take them if aloud.  ;D Or maybe as a Clone Commando. Maybe in a few years, once I get OM.

Keep in mind safety if you're doing it in kit. You're gonna have to be SUPER fit to start with, and then you gotta worry about restricted movement, things catching on things, being submerged in ice water while wearing a helmet, breakages, things falling off, losing boots in mud... list goes on.

You'll be badass sure but you might not be smart.

It's recommended to do events like this dressed in the bare minimum. Shorts shirt and shoes basically.

These events will kick your butt.
I did one during a unit reunion 1/67 CAB 2nd Brg. 4th ID.
Only way My broken dissabled butt made it was becouse  my bros were there helping and mitovating each other.

Wish they had this event closer to where I'm at in Canada...
They host all of four, two way out west and two way out east. Oh wait, there's also nothing much in central US either.

Anyone happen to know of one that takes place around the same time as a convention?  :laugh:
