Celebrating 15 years

On Wednesday, 9/4, the Winter Park Public Library put on a lovely Harry Potter trivia extravaganza! Members of the Slug Club attended the unofficial event (it did not count for House points) with about 50 other Harry Potter fans from around Central Florida. It was held at the Mellow Mushroom located in Winter Park.

Meg and myself teamed up with my boyfriend, Erik to create the Ravenbrawlers team, while Heather, Melissa and Mallory had their own team named The Order of the Goat. A third team was created with Dory, Ashley and Dominic.

There were 3 rounds of about 30 questions each. We had an awesome time, and although we thought that the Ravenbrawlers and The Order of the Goat were head-to-head, another team won. I’m going to figure out how they cheated, because the Ravenbrawlers deserved to win, dangit! I suspect a Quick Quotes Quill…..

Here are some questions that were particularly difficult. Can you answer them? Comment with the correct answer, and no using Google!

What was the name of the Slytherin Quidditch player that Draco Malfoy replaced as Seeker in the Chamber of Secrets?
Which four animals is a student allowed to bring with them to Hogwarts?
What was the creature that Luna Lovegood said can be warded off with onion?
What House was Terry Boot sorted into?
Besides Viktor Krum, name the other members of the Bulgarian quidditch team.
What does J.K stand for in J.K Rowling’s name?
What row was Harry’s prophecy located on in the Department of Mysteries?
Where was the first official meeting of Dumbledore’s Army?
What chess piece does Ron sacrifice himself to in order to help Harry advance in The Sorcerer’s Stone?
Who directly preceded Albus Dumbledore as Headmaster of Hogwarts?
What was the name of the student who betrayed Dumbledore’s Army to Umbridge?
What was the name of the location where Harry Potter and Cho Chang had their first official date?
Who said this quote: “You know, Minister, I disagree with Dumbledore on many counts … but you cannot deny he’s got style …

The Winter Park Library held other events this weekend to celebrate 15 years of Potter, so if any club member attended any events, please feel free to post your recap on the blog.

Our next meetup is on Thursday 9/19 at Dave and Busters where we will be hosting the first Matrem Stupri Veneficus Tournament. Witches and Wizards will be able to test their magical abilities with games and sports. A grand feast will follow.

Until next time, Wrackspurts!
