Quidditch End of the Season BonfirePosted by desi on May 24, 2020 - 12:05 am
George: "I can't see anyone trying to bump off a quidditch team."
Fred: "Wood might've done the Slytherins if he could've got away with it."
Something is going on over at The Quidditch Pitch. The stars are shining down and a fire burns brightly at the center of the field. Students from all Houses have congregated around the fire, excitement heavy in the air. The Quidditch season is over and it's time to celebrate.
The Overseers are closing the pitch for the next year to rebuild HEX Quidditch from the ground up. Come join us for our End of the Season Bonfire as we burn the old to make way for the new!
