We began with a round of Creaothceann (on the Cascade set); at the end of the round, Cody gave a bit of foreshadowing by saying 'i've never had this much...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Today's Quidditch gathering was one of the best attended ones yet - with all houses represented by multiple people! We began by racing around for Xany, but with a twist... instead of only three people getting points per question, we changed things so the first FIVE people to answer a question would ...

Re: 2019 WINTER SEEKING SCHEDULE

This is the same thing that Snitch refs need to do during House matches. Ideally the log should have seconds (because Snitch ...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

This night featured another fun gathering of Quidditch players for some fun with cauldrons and Quods! First we put our cauldrons on for Creaothceann as players trickled in; then it was time to divide teams. Everyone was asked to choose spells of their choice: some of us chose dueling spells ending i...
