So as I’m sure most of you have seen by now, Blue Mountain Quidditch Club has lost keeper Devon McCoy to Florida’s Finest (since he, you know, lives in Florida). Blue Mountain Quidditch Club has also picked up keeper John Gaffigan, most recently of NYDC Capitalists, less recently of NYU Nundu.
Talk about a major plus for both players and both teams.
Gaffigan on BMQC gives them a true, solid distributor with a ton of experience. McCoy is a fantastic player but not really one you would want to spread the ball around. Gaffigan and Isaac Mitchell now give this team a really nice pass-first v. drive-first duo of keepers. Gaffigan was reportedly going to play for the University of Dayton’s relatively new, un-established team, and I think he’s going to be much happier with BMQC (although it is sad that Dayton is missing out on what would have been an incredible coach and athlete).
McCoy on Florida’s Finest makes a lot of sense beyond him not having to pay thousands just to go to tournaments. I’m obviously not quite as knowledgeable about the South region, but McCoy has the kind of talent that really can push that team over the edge and into the clear top spot in the region. McCoy also gets a chance to work in an offense with (two time, two position Team USA player) Sean Pagoada, and if these two can build chemistry in the quaffle game, it’s going to be an extremely fun duo to watch.
so idk if you guys have heard about the series of attacks on the UF campus, but pretty much everyone is paranoid. i only see girls walk in groups at night and they have extra people patrolling the campus and escorting people if they’re alone
and tonight i was walking back with some friends…
Hey. Yo. READ and Reblog the hell out of this. UF Quidditch, way to step up and take action.
Our tournament is coming up on September 20th! We’re also having a fundraiser at Buffalo Wild Wings that day!
So after the tournament we encourage you to head on over to Bdubs with your teammates and show them this (either printed out or on your phone) and Bdubs will give us 10% of your sales! Everyone wins!
Here’s what we’ve been up to for the past week. We’ve had a couple practices, done some CRAZY recruitment at the involvement fair, and met with some new recruits. It’s gonna be a good year!
