Wherever You Are
The Summer Olympic Games are in Tokyo, but the Tar Heel Olympics are at your house. Compete individually or encourage your family and friends to gather up their Carolina gear and partake in a little friendly competition. Event one is Ulti-plate Frisbee. Get inspired.
Here’s what you need:
3 numbered paper plates (also labeled ‘U,’ ‘N’ and ‘C’), plus 5 paper plates per player
Here’s what to do:
Kinda like ultimate Frisbee, but with a Tar Heels-at-home twist. Secure three paper plates on the floor or countertop and label them “U,” “N” and “C,” worth 1, 2 and 3 points respectively. Give every player five paper plates and predetermine a place across the room where they must stand. Every player is trying to land their tossed plates onto a “U,” “N” or “C” plate with every toss. If the player lands a tossed plate onto a secured plate, the player receives the points for that respective letter. Player with the most points after all plates are tossed wins.
During this event, be sure to record yourself competing. Post your video to our Facebook event, Tar Heel Olympics: Ulti-plate Frisbee, between Friday, July 30 and Sunday, Aug. 8. That’s how you’ll be counted for competing in this event. Remember, when you compete in all four events (and post the videos to prove it!), and post a photo of you wearing your printable medal by Aug. 8, a 10/10 Carolina can cooler will be mailed your way. You’ll post your event videos within each corresponding Facebook event, and your printable medal photo can be posted in whichever Facebook event you would like, as long as it gets posted. Not only will you be on your way to the epic can cooler, those with the most Carolina spirit will be in the running for additional prizes, too.
