Matrem Stupri Veneficus 2013 Recap

The Slug Club had an awesome time tonight at Dave and Busters on International Drive! We met up for the first Matrem Stupri Veneficus Tournament (bonus House points if you’re the first one to translate the name!). It was basically just an excuse to get together and go ham on some games in the arcade. Some of us scored pretty big.

We had a lot of new faces tonight which was awesome! Everyone got along so well. It can be difficult to really connect with first timers when we do events in such crowded places, but we hope to see everyone again for our next meet-up.

The next event is currently scheduled to be the limited Ollivander’s Wand Making Day. I’m hosting it at my apartment so we have a 15 person cap on the event, so hurry up and RSVP before all the spots are taken! All materials will be provided for you for a $3 cash donation.

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!

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.
