The Bushwackers are the oldest team in East Bay Circle of Men with many members having committed significant portions of their lives to creating an organization for men and to providing a support for men to realize their dreams. With each man being a graduate of the Sterling Men’s Weekend, the team is presently comprised of 5 men, ranging in age from their 30s to their 60s. Some men are family men, all but one is married.

Below each man offers something about themselves, their team, or their work with men.


Declined to state


I am on the Bushwackers because I know these men will push me to give my best. These men tell me the truth about how I show up in the world. Because of this team I perform better in all areas of my life.


“A man needs men to support and empower him to be a better man than he would be on his own”


I have been on a men’s team for close to 25 years. It has made a huge difference in all aspects of my life. Being an active participant on the Bushwackers has allowed me to have men in my life as committed to my success and well being as I am to theirs. This trust, brotherhood and commitment to support each man to be his best self are the gifts we give each other each time we meet. We are truly blessed and I wish this blessing on all men.


I am commited to finding my life’s purpose, and being the best man I can be. Until then, my purpose is to Risk Annihilation in everything I do. And being on this team is a big step in that direction.
