Summer Update and Important Fall Things

11 Jul
It’s summer! The folks on the quidditch team have been busy, that’s for sure – we even have three players who are currently in England representing Canada in a series of exhibition games around the Olympics. (Links to the matches can be found here if you want to see Team Canada in action.) We’ve also been keeping busy playing quidditch every Sunday, from 2-4ish pm, at Carleton, and anyone who’s in town is welcome to join us whether or not you’ve played before!
 
We also wanted to let you all know what our plan is for the fall. Our first practice for the fall will be Sunday, September 9th at 1pm in Strathcona Park (the 101’ers are using our field, alas.). We’ll be publicizing this more closer to the date but you can all mark it on your calendars now!
 
The following weekend, September 15th and 16th, is our introductory training camp – it’s not as scary as it sounds, we promise. It will be two days of quidditch for the new players to learn the game, for people who we met at our table in clubs week to come try out the game, and a chance for the returning players to get back into the swing of things. Anyone can come for some or all of that weekend.
 
Competitive team tryouts will be September 22, 23, and 25th. This year we are also expanding our recreational team. We’d like to see more of you coming out just for fun on Sundays, enough that we maybe can get a couple of rec teams going!
 
Let me repeat: If you don’t want to be on the comp team, JOIN OUR REC TEAM! We promise fun, general hilarity, and lots and lots of awesomeness on a weekly basis.
