Quidditch Cup!

Happy Sunday, everyone!

This afternoon at St. Mike's was a very cool event... the very first Quidditch Cup!

For those of you unfamiliar, Quidditch is a wizarding sport from the Harry Potter series. I'm a huge fan of the books, so I was really excited to see that they were bringing the sport to St. Mikes!

We were really lucky, it was a gorgeous fall day, some people didn't even wear jackets. The days are starting to get chillier and a coat is becoming necessary at all times. It's even snowed a few times (nothing that's stuck though). But for this afternoon's Quidditch, we had warmth and clear blue skies.

Colleen and JLo- we're a silly bunch :)

Erica, Colleen, and Me :)
 They had been advertising about the cup and tabling in Alliot for a week, so in the end lots of people were excited and formed teams with their friend. There were about ten teams and they had a tournament. Altogether, it lasted about two hours. It was super entertaining.

Colleen, Erica, and Lexi, the refs!
My friends Colleen and Erica signed up to be referees. Neither of them had ever seen a Quidditch match in real life and they were a little nervous, but they did a GREAT job reffing!

Also, for the people who just wanted to watch, the RHA (Residence Hall Association, who ran the Quidditch Cup) provided Harry Potter themed treats. We had cookies and Butterbeer, a drink made from cream soda and butterscotch. It was my first time trying Butterbeer, and it was pretty good.

The winners! Sirius Blacks

Overall, it was a great afternoon and I hope it happens again in the spring. It was a great way to get away from homework and spend some time enjoying this weather before the snow starts really falling.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!!
