I just wanted to touch base with everyone and let you know that I have talked to the restaurant again and they have a large section of tables reserved for us. I said we'd be about 15 as far as I can tell based on rsvps but that there could be an influx of people or we could dwindle depending on people's availability.

I will be participating in a panel just before hand so I may be a few minutes late... I'll hightail it out of there, but I know it'll take around 10 minutes to walk to (about 6 blks north, 2 blks west). If anyone would like to step up to be a sort of Deputy and arrive at 5 to greet people and get the tables set up, please let me know. I plan to have some introduction cards with questions for each person to talk about.

If you haven't looked at the Berghoff's website, http://www.berghoff.com/, you might want to. It'll give you an idea of just how perfect it is to take pictures in--very beautiful wood work, stained glass windows and such.

If you know anyone else planning to attend, please direct them to this post! Thank you and see everyone next week!!!

Ginny Weasley - Gryffindor Chaser
Posted by truesalcove on 2008.07.17 at 22:44
Hello all. I'm searching for an image that I used to have on my other laptop which got stolen over Christmas. I taught some friends in my area how to play Quidditch based off of the wonderful conventions I'd been to. They loved it so much, as did their 11 year old son, that for his birthday, he's getting at least 20 of his athletic friends together to play a full day of quidditch with different teams set up.

Now, they are wanting to create tshirts for all of the players and each team. They wanted to know what the actual numbers were for each position like in the movies. Now, I know I had a very clear high res picture of the Gryffindor team in the Hospital wing, I believe in the 3rd movie, where you can see nearly all of the numbers. I know the seekers are #7, but I can't figure out what the rest were. I also have to have the picture to show them so that they can compare it to what they want to do.

If anyone can fill me in on the numbering system, as well as has a saved version or a link to the picture, I'd GREATLY appreciate it! Arigato!

Appologies for not being around in forever! I'm in a bit of a bind concerning roomies for Lumos. Here's the info if anyone's interested in a room at the Marriott with my godsister and me:

I'm looking for 2 roommates and also have one ticket for Lumos available.

We have an excellent room in the Marriott - 2 queen sized beds in a non-smoking room and a jacuzzi bathtub. The room is booked from July 26th - 30th. We have the Lumos room discount for all the nights it's available.

It will be approximately $240 US per person (if we have 4 people) for the 5 nights.

Okay so this isn't a pictures post, but it's still very important

if ANY of you have info about this, please let me know, spread the word etc

On sunday, during the re-enactment of Draco getting punched by Hermione, around noonish, I had my yearbook sitting on that dark-wooden table in the center of the main room (just in front of the Great Hall) by my wand and camera.

Someone picked it up and I would really like it back. It has TONS of autographs in there from all my friends and it's written out to Draco and Kayla. It also has a lot of personal info like #'s, LJ's etc, that I'd rather not have running around anywhere.

So, if you can all check your yearbooks and spread the word, I'd really appreciate it.

I know it was an accident, it happens, I'd just like it back

Thank you

Kayla (aka Draco Malfoy)
