The same wooded enclosure. The smoking wreckage of the helicopter sits amongst piles of mangled BOC bodies. Once such beautiful people, reduced to nothing more than simple cadavers. Burning debris and detritus are spread throughout the area, and the sweet smell of toasted human flesh wafts through the air. Suddenly a hand appears from underneath a twisted piece of metal. Miles (kilometers), crawls out. His bones broken, left eyeball hanging from the optic nerve. Kilometers is a dead man walking. He grunts, cries out. An idea appears in his mind, he remembers his EMT training. He remembers the ‘Forbidden Section.’ The section that is not spoken of. He remembers that he is actually trained in necromancy.
Kilometers chants under his breath, his mangled tongue working its best magic. ‘11, 11, 11, 11, 11,’ are the only intelligible sounds. ‘11, 11, 11.’ The bodies around him begin to show signs of life. Ethan’s finger twitches. Nathan D Plock lets out a groan. Paul begins to make the motions of a pole dancer. ‘11, 11, 11.’ Noel starts mumbling about rocks. Tess motions ‘hang loose’ to her neighbor. ‘11, 11!’ All the undead BOC’ers take up the chant. As it rises in volume so does Kilometers. He floats 10, 20, 30, 111 feet into the air. He cackles, and calls the meeting to order.
The meeting is called to order at 6:33

QUESTION (Is mayonnaise an instrument?): Can you get reimbursed for the wetsuit rental? Yeah. Are you sure? Dude, he’s the president. You don’t get reimbursed for other gear. Yeah, but. No one’s gonna pay for your ski rentals, bro. I don’t think we should pay for Salt Pump. Let’s vote. It passed. Wetsuits are being paid for.
Undead Kurt attempts to begin a BDD chant. Unfortunately he is headless and the breath escapes out nothing more than a hole in his neck. His hands are also completely severed and he can’t figure out how to operate snapchat with his gory stumps.
ME– no one sent me any emails.
NOEL– To clarify about gear: any councilmember can propose gear. To do so, send an email detailing the purchase, why we need it, costs, etc, to the secretary. All proposals are compiled and sent out before the meeting. Councilmembers will then be ready to vote and then voting is done. You must be a councilmember to propose gear!
CHRIS– This story comes from deep in the vaults of the shred club annals. Longboarding at Cheney Hill. C Spence comes out. “Are you okay with us boarding down your driveway into oncoming traffic?” “Bro I shred it daily I’m not gonna stop you, DROPPING.”
NOEL– I spent the last eighty three years in Svalbard. Skiing up shit then skiing down. Decision to take a nude is made. 15-20 degrees. Nice day, right? Clothes off, shred boards stil on. Total goon/kook thinks there’s a P Bear. Locked and Loaded. Skins off skis. Ready for battle. Guys it’s rock. Nude interrupted for nothing ugh. GODDAMMIT KEVIN. (still got the picture)
Pardo-I went to Alaska, Bear Mountain, over 1 griz per mile, couple too tree coooks take a trip. Weather turns, they go bed down, Hank (Henry Colt) forgets the two person bed. One person bed is big enough, Hank was middle spoon (score), Pardo was the papa bear, Paul baby bear, Hank gets stressed oot and sends it into the emergency bivy, its raining sideways, woke up in the morning and crushed the hike, saw some sweet nature scene, thats all he has to say.
The bodies of the BOC quickly begin to decay as the meeting is called to an end. Kilometers’ magical power fades. He plummets to the ground and detonates with the force of a hydrogen bomb. The greater LA area is reduced to nuclear wasteland. The US Government interprets this as a Russian attack and sends missiles to Moscow. Mutually Assured Destruction runs its course. The world is plummeted into a new Dark Age. To be continued.
