You can pick up an Ascendio pin on Randall’s Island – we’ll have the exact location for you that weekend at the HPEF Twitter; follow us for specifics. We’ll also have the Ascendio Street Team out on the Island, handing around Ascendio postcards and a few lunch bags for lucky Quidditch players and fans.
Quidditch has long been a part of HPEF events; one of the first Quiditch games played by Muggles was hosted at Nimbus 2003, and the first Water Quidditch match took place at Lumos in Las Vegas in 2006. At Infinitus, Kristina Moy presented about the IQA’s structure, rules and gameplay, and instructed attendees on how to start their own Quidditch teams. On the playing fields, the IQA also played a demonstration game and hosted a scrimmage for new players under IQA rules.
We’re planning to host some amazing Quidditch activities at Ascendio, on the playing field and in the meet-up rooms.
The Quidditch World Cup takes place on Randall’s Island in New York City on November 12 and 13; tickets are still available if you want to catch a few games!
