Quidditch Comes to Camp!

June 30, 2010by adam1

What do three Chasers, two Beaters, one Keeper and one Seeker have to do with Machaneh? Quidditch, of course! Quidditch is the sport made up by J.K. Rowling in the wildly popular series Harry Potter. Today is Yom Harry Potter, and what better way to celebrate then by learning a new sport?

Quidditch is played on “flying” broomsticks and is a mixture of dodgeball, tag, and flicker ball. Rho Muller, our resident Quidditch expert, who doubles as shekem lady, taught the sport, “Quidditch is the most rewarding sport that ever existed. It redefines sports as a whole. People who haven’t tried it are missing out!” Muller, plays for her Boston University team as a Beater. “The beater protects its team by throwing dodge balls at the other team”.

The Chanichim are loving it! How often do they get an excuse to run around with broomsticks? It’s also a nice change from every day sports and encourages creative thinking. More updates on Yom Harry Potter to come.
