will be starting Monday, July 9th
, and continue for a tempest filled six weeks of harrowing adventures. We will have Quaffle, IRC Games, Snitch and activities in the HOL Forum to completely bewilder and befuddle the participants!
More specifically --
Each week will see two activities in the HOL forum - a creative task and some sort of puzzle.
Each weekend, on Saturday at 9 pm HOL time, we will have an IRC activity. We will alternate between IRC Quidditch games and Quaffle on the weekends. The last weekend (August 18th and 19th), though, will be a double feature, with Quaffle play on Saturday and Quodpot (yes, we will bring out the cauldrons for that!) on Sunday.
We plan that all the persons who showed signs of seeking Snitch fame will have one to two games with opponents of comparable skill.TEAM POINTS**
