Re: 2019-2020 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Right after every house finished their first regular season game, we only needed to wait a single day for the next pickups. And so, on a cold, dreary November evening we took to the pitch as usual! We began with three rounds of Xany: two on the regular set and one on the Cascade set. Then everyone p...

Re: Team Management

In baseball, the saying I remember is "It is easier to fire one manager than 25 players" - and the truth is the manager tends to take quite a bit of the blame when the team has an off season. Often, the manager may very well be hamstrung by decisions that the team's owner makes... but, of course, ow...

Re: Questions?

It was a tournament we ran a year and a half ago to give people more chances to catch Snitches outside of regular season games. It ended in April 2018 and Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis was the undefeated champion. We may very well have another Snitch tournament within the next year though; they are alw...

Re: 2019-2020 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Even though some clocks may have been changed, that didn't stop people from flying out to the pitch for pickups, including representation from all four houses! We began with two rounds of Xany: one round with the regular set and one round with the Cascade set. And I am pleased to report that everyon...

Weeknight Pickup Scheduling: your opinion is highly sought after!

Ever since “SLAPS” (Saturday Late Afternoon Pickup Sessions) were folded into Quidditch Board activities, we have tried to organise Quidditch pickups in two different types of time slots: weekends in the evening hours HOL time and weeknights in the hours after midnight HOL time. Although the weeknig...

This past night featured another round of pickups, complete with a player who had never played before!

This past evening featured the first weekend pickup of the season; on an autumnally cloudy night with depressing weather, people from every house (including a confirmed Squib) flew onto the pitch. In fact, no fewer than nine people showed up to play! We began with two games of Creaothceann... the Sc...

Re: HP Fan Theories

My personal theory is that the Pensieve that Professor Snape showed Harry Potter - in which Snape's reasons for his actions are 'revealed' to be undying love for Harry's mother - was altered by Snape (and that Snape's actual motivations were somewhat different than what he showed Harry). We spend mo...

Pickups began for the year on this warm, early October evening. Five people suited up to play, representing each house - and we began with two games of the popular 'everyone can score on every question' variant of Xany (once on the normal Quidditch set and once on the special Cascade set). Then it w...

Re: Task 11: Leave Your Mark

That said, I met all sorts of great people from all four houses over the years - and enjoyed all sorts of adventures along ...
