Be Recognized as an Elite PAX

F3 STL Patch Program

The F3 STL Patch Program was created to provide a goal for regional leadership, community, accountability and acceleration into being an F3 St. Louis HIM. The patch is earned, not sold.

Starting January 1, 2021, those who achieve all of the requirements will be honored at the F3 STL Anniversary Event in October.

This patch is only achieved by the most dedicated PAX, both local and visitors from around F3 nation. The criteria is based off the success of the F3Grandstand Patch Program featured in 43Ft podcast (Cspan + Beaker). PowerPlant developed the idea and Brain, our current Weasel Shaker, is delivering it to the PAX.

For each completed answer, the individual PAX also needs to knock out 5 burpees.

  2. List all STL AOs
