What is QuidCon?
QuidCon is the first convention of its kind, one designed especially for quidditch players and IQA volunteers! QuidCon has something for everyone, with three days of programming, with sessions ranging from how to fundraise for your team and how to plan a tournament, to Q&A sessions with IQA management and the rules council. QuidCon is also the first opportunity to get certified as an IQA head ref or snitch from the best head refs in the league, including Dan Hanson and Will Hack. In addition, we’ll have a Great Hall-style feast, a ball, a friendly regional “house points” competition throughout the weekend, a mini tournament, and time sight-seeing around Chicago—all with your favorite quidkids! Don’t get left in the cupboard.
Who can go?
Anyone from an official or unofficial IQA quidditch team, anyone who wants to become a certified IQA head ref or snitch, or any IQA volunteer. In short, you!
