The weather is getting warmer,  grassy green parks are starting to call, and stomachs are beginning to rumble…

This can only mean one thing. It will soon be picnic time!

Artist Michael Beitz invites you to imagine inviting everyone you know to lunch with you al fresco at his tree-length picnic table.

Of course, you’ll need to pack a picnic basket big enough to hold all the goodies you’ll need at such a jumbo table. For inspiration, take a look at the seven-story corporate headquarters of the Longaberger Basket Company in Newark, Ohio.

It’s never too early to start preparing for summer!

Snooze.

Yawn.

NOW WE’RE TALKING!

“Muggle Quidditch,” or “Ground Quidditch,” began in 2005 as an intramural league at Middlebury College in Vermont. The rules were adapted from JK Rowling’s Harry Potter novels by Alexander Manshel, the first Quidditch Commissioner.

Since then the IQA has helped students from more than 400 colleges and 300 high schools form teams. The IQA serves to promote Quidditch as a new sport and lead outreach programs to increase athletic participation among children and young adults and bring magic to communities.
