Check out this wrap-up article on Saturday’s MQC-SNEQC Invitational! We got a mention :D
"Brandeis impressed all with new jerseys and a much improved lineup from last season, succeeding in snagging the seventh seed…"
Congrats to Boston University on their first-place finish!

Things you can vote on:
- the size of the pitch
- value of the snitch
- halftimes and timeouts
Thanks, IQA, this is awesome. But hopefully they don’t take 90% of the things being proposed in “ALL the Regions” into consideration. My favorite “I promise I personally will quit if these happen” suggestions:
- split the game into three sections, each of which either end a) after snitch catches or b) after 10 minutes… thus making seekers/snitches even MORE important
- reduce the snitch value to 10 points - that’s TOO drastic, and it’d turn everyone off seeking entirely (a position that few people enjoy playing anyway)
- start games via jump-ball for each ball
- play the game in four quarters
EVERY QUIDKID SHOULD TAKE THIS SURVEY.
The Newcastle Fireballs have played 2 more Triwizards in both April and May.
We’re all eagerly awaiting the official reports to link, in the meantime here is a teaser photo. Our subs getting ready for brooms down in the April final. Because it’s not NQS unless we’re engulfed in a giant hug <3
Check out our buds in Australia :D
One of our players is a journalism student. When we got home from the WC, she wrote a love letter to the game. Y’all should read it. It’s perfect.
Looks like the IQA is getting serious about making tackling safer and more professional!
World Cup is over, the sappy lovefest that always follows the tournament has died down, and now discussions about the future of the sport are starting up again. I’ve got a lot of thoughts on the topic, so I figured I should share some here.
On the jersey numbers/nicknames debate:
