Oh, I almost forgot to mention, after all that talk of Quidditch, Madicon 21 is this weekend! I know it's really short notice, but I've been pretty busy and haven't been able to be as involved in it this year as I usually am. I've barely even got my costume in order, and after my win in the competition last year with my Nurse Joy cosplay, I've got a bit more pressure than usual. If you for some reason find yourself in the northwestern region of Virginia this March 9th-11th, come stop by James Madison University for our own gaming convention, hosted by the Science Fiction Fantasy Guild. I'll be gushing over special guest Kelly Turnbull from Manly Guys Doing Manly Things most of the weekend, because she's amazing (nothing to do with it being my staffing job), but if I can find the time to put it together in the next 3 days, I'll also be presenting a panel on Quidditch at some point during the con, maybe even piecing together a scrimmage for anyone interested. So come say hi, enjoy a tabletop oneshot, some 40K, video games, comics, music, and plenty of competitions, special artist and writer guests, vendors, and rescue owls. For those of you not lucky enough to make the queue for Comic-con 2012 tickets this past weekend (I only managed to snag Thurs, Fri and Sun, sadly...), Madicon is close enough for $20.
