By PIQA - April 14th, 2011
April 9th was quite a day! The clouds, chilly temps and rain that lasted through the first games dampened everyones' mood, and play had to be delayed due to lightening. However, right at 2pm the sun began to make an appearance, and everyone finished out the day in high morale (and highly muddied clothes). I am very proud of everyone who went. Even though we didn't place, I heard multiple people on other teams comment on our sportsmanship and how nice we were. And despite the bipolar weather, the mud pit we had to play in, and a limited number of subs, you guys were absolute troopers. You guys represented PIQA, and the university, with class! Let's stay classy, work on improving our game play, and we're sure to kick ass at the Midwest Cup next semester. :)

Purdue Quidditch Invitational
By PIQA - October 18, 2010
Purdue University's Vawter Field will turn into the playing fields of Harry Potter's
Hogwarts School on Sunday, October 24, as "Muggle Quidditch" invades Purdue's college
campus with a real-life Quidditch Tournament.
Players will chase human snitches and launch balls through custom-made hoops,
all while dashing around the field on broomsticks. Interested spectators of
all ages will be welcomed to watch and enjoy a day of magical bliss.
The occasion of the event is to be the major gathering point of many colleges from the
Midwest to play Quidditch in support of the International Quidditch Association, the
world's first non-profit organization to promote the earthbound version of the sport,
invented by J.K. Rowling in her Harry Potter novels, whose mission is improving youth
athletic participation, community interaction, and literacy education.
Members of the public and attending Purdue students will meet delegates or full teams
from 8 colleges throughout the Midwest including: Ball State, Bowling Green State
University, Illinois State, Loyola University, Transylvania University, and watch
several intercollegiate games.
The intercollegiate tournament will take place at Purdue University's Vawter Field
at Martin Jischke and 3rd street in West Lafayette. Matches will begin at 10:30 a.m.
and will go until 6:00 p.m.
