Yes my lovely little cubs, it's Gryfftoberfest time. Every October (literally, every October) we host a month of fun, games, competition, and allow you to get creative and crazy. This year the difference is that we are offering BEANS as the prizes, not just fame or glory or bragging rights.
The motto for this year's Gryfftoberfest was submitted by Jennifer Kusakabe and that motto is The voices in our heads agree - we're not crazy! We had a total of 40 submissions and gave away 170 beans for this one contest alone.
Now that the motto has been selected, we are onto our arts portion. Designing avatar's and signatures to be voted on. The info for this can be found here. Once that contest is completed and a winning signature and avatar chosen, they will be put online for all Gryffindor's to use to their hearts content.
But that's not all. In addition to these two contests that we have, we will have a total of about 8-10 contests running throughout the entire month of October. Many are already posted and the bean count for activity is tremendously high. If you're looking to have a little fun, while earning some beans, you'll definitely want to check out our Gryfftoberfest forum located, here. Come have some fun, play with your fellow Gryffindors and earn tons of beans!
