Quidditch Without Borders

26 Oct

Remember the time the RIT Dark Marks came to visit us in Ottawa and it was just one big international quove-fest? We sure do!

This. This right here.

Well, there has been a distinct lack of Quidditch Without Borders going on in our lives this season. So, needless to say, we were thrilled when our good friends RIT invited us to the sunny south (right?) for the RIT Snow Belt Conference Meet this Saturday, October 27!

If you’re in the Rochester area, come on out for what promises to be a spectacular afternoon of quidditch. We’ll be playing RIT, our BFFs WEQL, SUNY Geneseo (the team that knocked us out of WCV – no hard feelings, guys, but we’re excited for a rematch!), and new opponents Aquinas Quidditch and Alfred University.
