Daily Prophet, Issue 15

Announcement Email List
There may be a few of you still not signed up for this list or you changed the email address that you want mail sent to. Please visit our Google Group to sign up so that you don't miss any important information. All Dueling Club updates will be sent through the group mail.

Dueling Club
The Dueling Club matches have all been set and the tool and gauge information is posted in THIS post. The pattern will be released this Thursday at 5:30 a.m. Pacific Standard Time.

If you receive your death hat or sock from your opponent before you are finished you must send the work in progress to your opponent. They will either frog what you've done and use the yarn for the next round or, if the project is completed, they may decide to keep as is or finish the project.

So, I know that I have mentioned the average finishing time for both the hat and sock brackets, but please keep in mind that some are very competitive and will try to complete these projects as soon as possible. In the hat bracket, I have no doubt that some will finish the hat that very same day and get it in the mail. Socks, of course, will take a little longer, but don't be surprised when you receive your death hat or sock in the mail.

NOTE: Lily of Flitwick - Your emails are bouncing back to me.

The bracket list can be found HERE also.

I know that we've been dealing with the whole Dueling Club sign up thing, but don't forget that the first Quidditch match begins this Wednesday! The trivia will be posted at about 7:30 a.m. PST Wednesday. The Snitch will be released during this round on Saturday at approximately 8:30 a.m. PST.

House Point Update
Here's where the houses stand before Quidditch Round One

Ravenclaw 83%

Slytherin 86%

Hogwarts Happenings
Wisteria has taken Professor Lufkin under her wing and shown him around while he isn't teaching, so he's been rather preoccupied. I haven't read too many mishaps where he is concerned, but I know for a fact that many of you are still mooning over the infamous Professor Black who is still teaching the Potions class. I thought that I should repost his picture for the first years to ogle at see.

This week in the Care of Magical Creatures class students found that two books were required for this class? What were they? The second book is required for which year student? In your blog posts this week it would be interesting to see pictures of this book along with the mention of an animal that you found of interest while reading it.
