In the News...
For a little goings on in the U.S. of Harry Potter, we bring you this:
Get ready for a Harry Potter tournament
Tickets and participant badges for the fifth annual Harry Potter Trivia Tournament will be released Oct. 2 at the Vacaville Public Library.
The competition will be 7 p.m. Oct. 21 at the Vacaville Performing Arts Theatre and is open to Vacaville students between third- and eighth-grades. Every elementary and middle school in Vacaville and Travis school districts, as well as several local private schools, have been invited to send two competitors and are selecting their participants now.
Badges from any school that chooses not to participate will be rolled over into the pool for general public release.
Organizers expect about 50 badges will be released, in addition to about 400 tickets.
The event is free, but tickets are required for admission. No more than four tickets will be issued to any individual.
Trivia questions are based on all five Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling.
There is also a costume competition for trivia competitors, as well as members of the audience, with prizes for the best. A drawing for Harry Potter-related items and other goods will be held to benefit local literacy programs.

So if any of you lucky people get to witness this, drop us a line and let us know how it went. ;)
