Our reward for a week of hard work was a relaxing Saturday. We all slept in before starting our day with brunch at 11 a.m.

After brunch the YPMs surprised us with a scavenger hunt that pitted us against each other in a quest to take pictures of landmarks around the campus. We were able to explore UVA and work together to race to be the first to finish the scavenger hunt.

Once everyone arrived back at Bice House, we discovered the second surprise of the day: a chalk circle on the parking lot in front of Bice which was to be the arena in which a tournament-style water balloon fight would be held. Things got heated quickly, and it was funny to see roommates chosen to fight against each other. After the championship round, we had a free for all.

After relaxing and having dinner, we had enough time to work on our policy projects. Overall, it was a relaxing but surprisingly productive day.
