Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

This past evening we had the first pickup of 'summer time' for HOL. People from all four houses showed up for the party, though we probably couldn't quite describe the gathering as "2 ickles and 3 nuts". Instead of flying to a recent Muggle song (as I threatened), we began with the more standard act...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

This evening's pickup may or may not have been affected by an incident involving Muggle clocks working differently in different places. Regardless, there were still plenty of explosions for those of us who were able to make it out there! We began by casting spells to determine teams: Will was the on...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Before this evening's Quidditch pickups could begin, we all needed to vanquish another foe: Muggle clocks that insisted on poor synchronisation on both sides of the pond! But despite the confusion, we still managed a solid turnout, with each house represented. First we began with two rounds of Xany:...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Last evening's Quidditch gathering could be considered a birthday celebration for one of our players... except that the bot had a mind of its own. 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

A note to refs: please capture the Snitch grid at the start of the match and keep a log of the match itself - and when the match is over, email both to quidditch@hol.org.uk ! This is the same thing that Snitch refs need to do during House matches. Ideally the log should have seconds (because Snitch ...

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...
