For our June discussion series, we are going to take a brief break from our book discussions to have a more focused topic. Chamber of Secrets introduced us to Gilderoy Lockhart, the WHY? of the infamous series of DADA professors. Let us delve into this maligned and cursed profession: We will discuss the many DADA professors during Harry's years at Hogwarts. Discussion will include items such as: - Which one was the worst? - What houses should they be sorted into (for the one's not canonically sorted)? - The future of DADA. Hope to see you there! ---- Our monthly Meetups are almost always free to attend. We do collect donations during each monthly Meetup (or sometimes hold a raffle). This helps fund our operating costs as well as supplies like prizes, crafting materials and more. You are also welcome to donate at any time via the internet at https://secure.meetup.com/TGTSNBN/contribute/ Please do not let this discourage you from attending if you cannot contribute at this time, it is only a request, not a requirement. Thank you for your support!
The Midsummer Fantasy Faire is a fantasy (non-historical) themed faire in Ansonia CT. It is A TON of fun, and has performers not seen in the Tuxedo Faire and their are less Muggles than other faires. The Ansonia Faire is 1.5 hours from NYC, only 30 minutes further away than the Tuxedo, NY Faire. So lets show Ansonia some Hogwarts love! HP Cosplay, Ren Cosplay, etc is not required but definitely encouraged! Start and end times are the formal times of the Faire. But I usually recommend arriving at Faires at least 30 minutes before gate opening. We will also hopefully be joined by some members of HP-CT! Please note that we will not have transportation available for this event. But please use the discussion section below to organize car shares or train shares! For more information about the Faire, visit its homepage: http://www.mfrenfaire.com/ IMPORTANT NOTE: This event is RAIN OR SHINE
