So I come into my room and see this in my coat pocket. I pull it out and proceed to freak out - of course. I open it, and find two pages. The first page says this:
To Whom It May Concern,
On behalf of the Department of Magical Games and Sports and the International Quidditch Association, and in coordination with the CCAD Student Programming Board, you are invited to attend the first-ever CCAD Quidditch Cup!
After significant badgering by members of your Student Programming Bard, the Improper Use of Magic Office has relented and the appropriate provisions have been made to bring Quidditch, the Wizarding World’s most popular magical sport, to your school’s campus.
In case you are unfamiliar with the game of Quidditch, it is played on broomsticks (usually flying broomsticks, but we certainly don’t have time for flying lessons). For Muggle Quidditch, each team is comprised of eight players: three Chasers, two Beaters, one Keeper and one Seeker. In Muggle Quidditch, the eighth player represents the Golden Snitch and plays an important role in the game (the Seeker that catches the Snitch ends the game). A complete guide to the game of Quidditch can be acquired by visiting the following web address: http://dft.ba/-CCADQuidditchRules.
The CCAD Quidditch Cup will be held on Friday, April 15th on the CCAD Campus Quad. If you are interested in entering a team in the tournament, please complete the attached Entry Form and return it to the Offices of The Assistant Director of Student Activities (Eric Ott) by NO LATER than Thursday, April 14th. This will allow enough time for the appropriate equipment to be Apparated in from our Headquarters in London. Team sign-ups will be accepted at the special showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I on Thursday, April 14th (to which attendance is encouraged).
If you are not interested in being a part of a Quidditch team, you are invited to attend the Cup as a spectator. Signs and banners supporting your favourite teams are encouraged! Pumpkin Juice and other sundries will be provided for you.
We hope that you will join us for what is sure to be an exhilerating afternoon!
Yours in Sport,
U.S. Collegiate Liaison
The second page is the sign-up sheet. I’m going to be a Keeper. It’s going to be awesome.
I fucking love my school.
