SQL CHANGES

posted Nov 8, 2008, 6:19 PM by Imperial Jedi   [ updated Nov 8, 2008, 6:22 PM ]

Hello SQL,

It's been a great time playing quidditch with you. As of now I will retire from Commissioner. I will no longer organize games and hold the equipment.

If you want to have the quidditch equipment for free, please message me. I will give preference to anyone wanting to be commissioner.

I'm starting my Senior classes next quarter. I'm not only removing myself from quidditch, but also from the Chatham Area Rowing Association in order to not be overwhelmed when completing my Senior Project.

Let me know if you have any questions. I thank you for your understanding. ^_^

[Additional Note: November 9th SQL Game has been CANCELLED.]

Hope to see you at the World Cup! If you can't make it, you may be able to watch the event on our live webcast on the website. We are still working out the camera logistics.


Thanks very much,

Hello Quidditch Players and Enthusiasts!

Thanx for the great turnout yesterday. We had reporters from the Savannah Morning News joining us. Their article about the Savannah Quidditch League can be found in today's paper or online here: http://savannahnow.com/node/597999

Great job and see you all on Nov. 9th!

EDIT: The same article was also put in the Augusta Chronicle here: http://chronicle.augusta.com/stories/102108/met_480253.shtml

Game Postponed AGAIN!!!

Okay, we're going to keep trying to have a game each weekend until we get one. Today it is obviously raining and that's putting very dangerous conditions out on our pitch. I think we can all safely blame the Dementors this time. You can use the extra time to prepare for your midterms. See you next week (I hope!)

IQA SOUTHEAST Group Notice

posted Sep 19, 2008, 9:25 AM by Imperial Jedi   [ updated Sep 19, 2008, 9:47 AM ]

IQA Southeast has a few announcements today.

First of all, we'd like to welcome the newest quidditch team in our region, CSU Quidditch with Commissioner Travis Rampley. Welcome!

Travis had some questions about hoops, so I'm going to post Alex Benepe's recent hoop construction instructions along with a scribbling somewhat representing what the Savannah Quidditch League did for hoops. Please visit the group and exchange ideas.

Also, Kori and I are working on putting together a regional cup. There will be a new discussion thread to submit your suggestions and preferences for such an event. We need to know what you would like for a date, location, half-time, etc. If your team can host a regional cup, let us know.

Okay, I think that's everything. Have a great weekend!

IQA Southeast Regional Coordinator
