2018 Blackbeard Memorial Day Challenge

ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD,

BBChallengeBlackBackOUT.

Blackbeard’s “I’m Kind Of A Big Deal” Challenge has been created in memory of SSG Matthew Pucino, US Army Special Forces Operator who was killed in Afghanistan, November 23, 2009. This challenge, like Matthew, is Kind of a Big Deal. Matthew spent a time or two in the gym. This challenge reflects Matthew’s persona, as he always worked hard at whatever he did. Whether it was earning the coveted Green Beret, or memorizing hand signals to call plays in a hurry up offense on the football field, or putting on fifty five pounds of muscle, Matthew worked hard.
