Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

This evening's pickup was exciting - complete with new blood and a new Quod to test out! We began with two rounds of Xany: one with the regular set and one with the Cascade set. Then it was time to divide among teams - upon realizing nearly half of us (Katelin, Kathren, Kendra) had names beginning w...

Re: Survey for Seeking Fun

For completeness:

I would LOVE to snap my 3 game losing streak take part in another Snitch tournament! I can make anything work, but starting in February or so probably makes the most sense.

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

The first pickup of 2019 was a very exciting series of matches, featuring cauldrons, Quods, tridents, and all sorts of other fun things! And every house was represented! We began with a round of Creaothceann before deciding to split up into teams based on Hunger Games districts. With half of the peo...

Survey for Seeking Fun

Our last Seeking Tournament was nearly a year ago; as the new year starts, it makes sense for us to gauge interest in another one! So, if you are interested in participating in another Seeking Tournament in the near future, please reply to this post and tell us which months you would prefer such a t...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Not too many people flew onto the pitch last evening, but those who made it out there had plenty of times to explode! We began with two rounds of Xany: one with the normal set and one with the Cascade set. With three people there, each was asked to choose a letter for "team" selection: Tarma chose J...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

This past evening saw another fun, exciting round of pickups, complete with a returning face and a runaway Quod! We began with two rounds of Xany: one with the normal set and one with the Cascade set. We then broke into teams based on Shadow's suggestion of "chemistry vs physics" - only to find the ...

Re: Class Assignments

I wrote the following essay on my final for Dario's Transfiguration class several years back (I took it before he was known as Professor Brighton) and it's still one of my favorites. As I'm sure you're aware, the new Human Transfiguration spell known as "Mental Duplication" has made major headlines ...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

On a cold, dark, rainy evening in late November, a handful of Quidditch diehards took to the pitch for the next round of Quidditch pickups. Beginning with a regular game of Xany, we deliberated over team selection and ended up going with "Students vs Professors"... but the conditions of the pitch al...

Even though the regular season of Quidditch is already underway (there's another game this Saturday!) pickups have been continuing as scheduled, including this night. We began by placing cauldrons on our head for a quick round of Creaothceann, but then it was time to divide into teams. Advancing an ...

This evening, we had the first pickup in November... all four houses were represented and we even got to introduce a new player to the Quod! We began with two different "Xany" races (the first three to answer score points): one with the regular set (possibly the most exciting Xany race I have ever e...

Last week we all met on the pitch for another pickup! This time, we had all four houses represented - including some new players!

Today it was time for the third pickup of the season! The turnout count wasn't the greatest, but we still had lots of fun nonetheless - and a smaller crowd allowed us to complete more games! We began with three rounds of Xany: in between our standard rounds with the regular question set and the Casc...
