2011 was a great year for Quidditch, as the IQA traveled to various conventions in the U.S. (from C2E2 in Chicago, IL to LeakyCon in Orlando, FL). By hosting demo matches and presenting at panels, we were able to make many friends and get Muggles to fall in love with the sport. So…we’re doing it again!

If you missed out on one of our convention opportunities in the past, you’ll have lots of time to plan ahead now!
The IQA is currently in the process of planning four great convention appearances for 2012:
- Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2)- April 13-15, North Building at McCormick Place, Chicago IL (http://www.c2e2.com/)
- Ascendio- July 12-15, Portofino Bay Resort, Orlando FL (http://hp2012.org/)
- LeakyCon- August 9-12, Hilton Chicago, Chicago IL (http://www.leakycon.com/)
- New York Comic Con- Oct 11-14, NYC Jacob Javits Center, NYC, NY (http://www.newyorkcomiccon.com/)
Sound fun? It is! We are currently looking for convention leaders and volunteers to help out at ALL of the conventions. Convention leaders will be running the show at the conventiona, making sure that panels, demo matches and tabling are all set to go. For demo matches, we are looking for IQA teams that would like to show convention attendees how the game is played. And hey, you earn a day pass for each day you volunteer. Not too bad!
More information will be released as the time gets closer. If you want to help us spread Quidditch across the nation, let us know!
Email Kristina Moy (email@example.com) or Logan Anbinder (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any general questions, volunteer requests, or if you have any ideas for future conventions.
