Thanks very much to everyone who visited our room at StarFest 2007! Lady Viola Fey really enjoyed all of the Death Day cards. Read on for winners of our contests, plus a special edition of the Morning Oracle!
Morning Oracle – Starfest Edition
Fans who came by during the weekend were able to pick up a special edition the Morning Oracle. In addition to news of a peace treaty with the Galactic Empire, readers could find out about the PREvention of Transfiguration ENhanced Deception (PRETEND) Act, the attack on Timmernak, and the arrival of Avistrum’s new Quidditch coach, Vittoria d’Medici.
Wizard Jeopardy, hosted by the Marauders, was a great success, with more than 100 audience members in attendance. We distributed a number of door prizes as well as our main prize, a free weekend pass to Starfest 2008. Patrick Brownson was the winner of our Jeopardy game after two tiebreaker questions. Our runners-up received an Alivan’s wand and a Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie poster. We also gave away 50 “mourning armbands” for Sirius Black for our fans to wear at the movie premiere. We would like to thank Sage Moon and Starfest for donating all of our prizes for the event.
New Head Boy, Head Girl, and Prefects!
After the Wizard Jeopardy contest, Headmaster Dowling showed up to announce the elevation of Trent Voertigern and Audrey “Trouble” Deserand to Head Boy and Head Girl. He also awarded Prefect badges to Enigmus‘s Susan Jevoli, Lobostro‘s Emmaline Roffignac, and Colubrae‘s Lucas Zeiapher. Congratulations to all of them for superb work during the last year!
New Quidditch coach Vittoria d’Medici refereed over 60 matches, played on the PlayStation 2, to crown winners for our Quidditch Tournament. Saturday’s winner was Kore-Rhi Drakenwulf of Enigmus, but Opus 2006 winner Andrew Harcrow of Parador reclaimed his crown with a win on Sunday. Each day’s winner claimed a Nimbus 2000 replica broom, courtesy of Starfest.
Our art contest was won by Parador’s Bella Byrne, who submitted a hand-made wand for the competition. She won a free pass to Starfest 2008. Second place went to Susan Jevoli, winning a Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie poster for her painting of Renfield. Third place, an Alivan’s wand, went to Emmaline Roffignac for her watercolor of an ankh. Well done!
