On a hot Wednesday during lunch, the newly created “Quidditch Club” attracted 70 eager students, all squeezed into the classroom of A14. The club adviser, Justin Raisner, was amazed at how many students came to attend the first meeting.
“I think there were three clubs in here,” Raisner said, after all the students managed to escape the over-crowded room.

The two girls who started the club, Monica Chin and Christina Rice, were surprised about how popular the club had become.

“We only expected a few of our close friends to come,” said Chin, “This is just unreal!”

They had decided to start the club since they are both die-hard Harry Potter fans and have seen many colleges have made their own quidditch teams.

Quidditch is a game created by J.K. Rowling in the mystical world of Harry Potter. In the books and movies, the players ride on broomsticks and chase after flying objects; called the quaffle, the bludgers, and the golden snitch.

The players try to catch and throw the quaffle into 3 rings, suspended high in the air. Unfortunately for the muggles stuck in reality, it is simply impossible to fly around on cleaning tools.

But Potter fans have found the answer, and now have an official “Quidditch World Cup.”

“It has always been our dream to live in the world of Harry Potter,” both girls gushed, “so we thought this was the closest we could get.”

The two of them plan on splitting the members into four “houses”: Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Gryffindor, and play on one of the open fields at Carlmont.

Even if you’re not a complete Potter-fan or quidditch-er, you can still join in on the festivities.

“We plan on doing different activities every meeting and we’re open to any ideas, too. It’s not just going to be about playing quidditch, we’ll always be talking about Harry Potter,” explained Rice.

Those who love the series, prepare for movie marathons, quidditch playing, and other Potter-filled activities!
