Help uOttawa Quidditch get to the World Cup!

13 Mar

uOttawa Quidditch is on our way to the World Cup in Kissimmee, Florida! We’re excited to be part of the premiere sporting event of the year, the pinnacle of our sport’s athletic competition. We will be competing against 79 other Division I teams from across the world, including teams from the USA, Italy, France, Mexico, and our very own Canada (Fleming College and the University of Toronto, although they did not originally qualify, are sending teams as part of the regional allocation process).

We’re incredibly excited to have the opportunity to represent uOttawa, the Ottawa quidditch community, and Canada. Because the World Cup falls during our final examination period, we’ve been hard at work deferring our exams and making sure our assignments and take-homes are squared away before we travel to Florida to play quidditch in the heat (no slush! It’s a quidditch miracle!).

We became known for our pre-game dance and cheer at WCV. Can you say reprise?

However, World Cup poses significant challenges for our team even outside of the examination challenge. We have 21 competitive players, a coach, a Canadian Regional Director, and some lovely fans to take all the way to Florida, and unfortunately our dogsled won’t get us that far. To that end, we’ve been running an online fundraising campaign to help augment our on-campus fundraising, and we’ve been incredibly pleased and grateful by the support we’ve received so far. We would appreciate any support you’re able to give – we’ve received donations of $1 and $5, and donations of $214 and $250, and a full range of donations in between.

We’re not asking for your charity – we’ve got a full slate of awesome perks, prizes, and rewards you can claim for your donation. Whether it’s a signed t-shirt or sexy calendar you’d like, or a personalized quidcapella serenade or TARDIS tote bag, we can provide! Feel free to check out our perks and pick out that sparkly Snitch ornament, cozy hoodie, swag poster, or mix cd that best suits your tastes.

Here, we’ll tell you why:
