We would like to thank the hundreds of people who came by and visited us at StarFest, at both our table on Friday and Saturday, as well as the room we had all day Sunday! We hope you enjoyed Wizard Jeopardy hosted by the Marauders on Saturday, and the Potions and Practical Magic lessons on Sunday. Our thanks to Madam Grasella Moffat, a distinguished Avistrum alumna, who was our guest Potions lecturer for the weekend. We would also like to thank Mistress Craefter for her terrific lessons on origami and defensive symbols.
Our Wizard Jeopardy winner, Debbie, received two all-weekend passes to StarFest 2007. Brandi, our runner-up, won a beautiful mahogany wand courtesy of Alivan’s Fine Wandmakers, and Sarah, our second runner-up, won an assortment of Harry Potter merchandise from Sage Moon, including a Gryffindor scarf, a candy-filled cauldron, and a poster!
Our winners in the art contest won the same prizes. Paul, our winner, submitted a beautiful hand-crafted wand. Kate, our runner-up, gave us a terrific sketch of Headmaster Dowling in his office, and Bella submitted a colored drawing of herself in Professor Kobiyashi‘s Charms class at OPUS 2005.
The Quidditch Tournament on PlayStation 2 was won by Adam with a score of 570, who got some great stuff from Sage Moon. Our runner-up, T.J., scored 540 and received a bagful of sci-fi freebies from StarFest.
We had a great time, and we hope you did, too! If you missed out, you still have three weeks to register for our all-weekend term at OPUS 2006!
