Whilst soaring over campus on our Hippogriffs on our way back from a Hogsmeade butterbeer run Thursday evening, we noticed something strange, curious, queerer than a Dumbledorian secret passcode. Harry Potter nerds. In flight. Yes, that’s right. The Dork Parade on Broomsticks Intercollegiate Quidditch Association has officially arrived at UC Berkeley.

The East Coast bred organization boasts over 200 College Quidditch teams in the nation. Considering the high population of caped Rowling fans roaming our campus, we’re shocked it’s taken this long for wizard meatheads to get the league flying.

Co-founders Charlie Strauss and Hana Kwon wrangled up 36 hopefuls for Thursday’s tryouts. A crowd of rubber-necking muggles watched Potter diehards toss around the old Quaffle.

The Facebook group remains elusive, however, it appears that intramural matches will be happening weekly at Memorial Glade Pitch. Chances are we’ll know more once Strauss and Kwon weed out the wizards from the squibs and finalize a winning lineup.

I have observed that of all sorts of insurance, medical insurance is the most dubious because of the conflict between the insurance coverage company’s necessity to remain profitable and the customer’s need to have insurance. Insurance companies’ earnings on health and fitness plans are certainly low, hence some providers struggle to earn profits. Thanks for the tips you discuss through your blog.

I have seen that currently, more and more people are attracted to surveillance cameras and the area of digital photography. However, as a photographer, it’s important to first devote so much period deciding which model of camera to buy and also moving via store to store just so you might buy the lowest priced camera of the brand you have decided to decide on. But it won’t end generally there. You also have to take into account whether you should buy a digital dslr camera extended warranty. Thx for the good guidelines I acquired from your site.

I must express thanks to you for rescuing me from this particular matter. After surfing around through the the web and seeing ways which were not productive, I was thinking my life was over. Existing devoid of the answers to the problems you’ve sorted out all through your entire write-up is a serious case, and the kind that could have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I had not noticed your blog post. The capability and kindness in handling all the things was precious. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a point like this. I can now look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for the specialized and effective help. I won’t think twice to propose your blog to any person who requires guidelines on this area.
