Site Q's

Site Q's are people who have stepped up to start an AO and are responsible for scheduling Q's, promoting the location and making sure it maintains the core principles of F3. Our Site Q's have done a great job and I look forward to this continuing.  Our current Site Q's are: 
  • Monday, Echo Chamber - Chili Pepper
  • Tuesday - Bicycle Time, Pincher
  • GreenMile - Drake
  • Tuesday, Camden Yard - Hercules
  • Weds, Nolan - Sniper
  • Thur, Unconditional Surrender - Flashdance
  • Friday, Nathan Benderson - Jimmy Dean
  • Saturday, AlphaQuadrant - Bing
  • Saturday, Lion's Pride - Kotter
F3 is set up as a reverse incubator leadership model. If you have ideas, and want to take on leadership at an AO, lead a charity event or cause, approach any one of us and let's put it in action! This is not about the leadership team executing on all of the ideas.
