Exciting Times

30 Dec

We hope everyone has had a great break from class. We certainly have been busy.

First, we are completing our application for club status at the university. This would make us the official team of UofO. Part of the application requires the signatures of 10 prospective members. We need 10 people to meet up with one of us to sign a form, declaring your intention to join the team and releasing your contact information to the SFUO. If you’re in Ottawa and able to meet one of us, please get in contact with us. It’s very simple, we just need your name, student number, e-mail, telephone #, and signature. This is very important, without these 10 signatures, we cannot become an official club. If you’d like to sign, send an e-mail to

Now, exciting news. Our first practice will be January 9th from 2-4 pm at Carleton University. It will be hosted by the Carleton Quidditch team. This will be a blast. Don’t worry if you’ve never played/have no idea what the rules are/are afraid you’ll look foolish. Most people have never played before, so you’re not alone. Andrea Hill, the team’s coach and founder, will explain the rules of the game. As for being afraid to look foolish, don’t be ridiculous. What could be cooler than this?

Your friends will be jealous. So, to keep this jealousy from destroying your friendship, bring them along. Everyone is welcome. If you want to travel with us to Carleton, we will be meeting in front of Tabaret. We will be leaving at 1 p.m. sharp. If you aren’t with us, we can’t wait for you. Please be on time. Or you can choose to meet at Carleton. Practice starts at 2 p.m. Again, please be on time.

If you’re meeting us, please don’t forget to bring your UPass or bus tickets. You will also need a broom or something broom-like (ex. lacrosse stick). Dress warmly in comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Know that we will be playing outside regardless of weather.

Get pumped.
