At the conclusion of Warmarama PAX moseyed over to the Bear Country football field with the American Flag in tow. The American Flag was posted near the field where the PAX circled up. In a sign of respect to America and to those who fought and bled for our freedoms, PAX observed the National Anthem. Following the National Anthem PAX were split into two groups for a competitive game of Carolina Dry Docks (CDD) Ultimate Frisbee. The original rules of Ultimate Frisbee applied, however if a turnover occurred the offensive team had to do 5 CCDs and when a team scored the defense had to do 20 CCDs. The game started out evenly matched and it was a constant battle back and forth. Team 1; Gunner, Catapult, Cowbell, Sunshine, Bachelor Pad, Nomad, and Buoy struck first making the score 1-0. Team 2; Yoast, Submac, Cowboy, Scully, Airwolf, Doss, Cyborg, and Ironman immediately woke up and caught on fire scoring 6 straight points making the score 1-6. At the conclusion of the game, Team 1 displayed grit and scored the final point of the game to make it 2-6. Not to make excuses, but Team 2 did have 8 players. Kidding aside it was a great game that displayed tremendous sportsmanship.

YHC read two famous quotes that referenced the importance of our Independence.
“The Flag of the United States has not been created by rhetorical sentences in declarations of independence and in bill of rights. It has been created by the experience of a great people, and nothing is written upon it that has not been written by their life. It is the embodiment, not of a sentiment, but of a history.”
“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
