Quidditch Western Cup Regionals - Day 2
After the kids quidditch they made just one pitch for the start of the semi-final. I wish they would have done just one pitch the entire time. The field was larger and there wasn't any distraction of other players crossing into each other pitches. Anyways everyone moved their seats ten feet in to be closer to the action (at our own risk, of course). There were two semi-finals and then the winners from those semi-finals would play in the final.
I have to say that these final three games were the best of the weekend. They were action packed, the quaffle changed from hand to hand so fast. Bludgers were nailing people left and right. This was Quidditch at it's best.
I sit here Sunday evening just having spent the entire weekend watching this very magical event and I still can't believe it. I was at a Quidditch match not only did I watch live Quidditch I watched about 20 games of Quidditch spanning a weekend. It was great surrounding myself with other die hard Harry Potter fans. And theses guys are not just die hard fans they are extremely talented athletes.
And in November they are having the Quidditch World Cup with over 60 teams participating over a 2 days of action packed fun. I'm going to start making plans to attend this year. And I'm going to see if I can find local teams that play.. not only to watch but to see if I can join in on one
I now understand why the Wizarding world loves their Quidditch.
Be sure to check out the 305 pictures that I took during the two days.. Album 1 http://ow.ly/4skMx & Album 2 http://ow.ly/4skNM Also I'll be posting video of the event as well in the near future.
