I hurried into the local Examprepwell department store to grab1 some last minute Chirsmas gifts. S300-115 Dumps 1Z0-808 exam questions I looked at all 210-060 practice exam the people and grumbled2 to 70-347 pdf myself. I would be in here forever and I just had so much to do. Chirsmas 1Z0-808 exam questions was beginning to S300-115 Dumps become such a drag. CISM training I kinda wished that Examprepwell I could 1Z0-808 exam questions just sleep through Chirsmas. But I hurried the best I could through all the people to Examprepwell the toy department.

And then she left the aisle. The CISM training boy continued CISM training to CISM training hold the 210-060 practice exam doll. After a bit 1Z0-808 exam questions I asked the boy who the doll was for. CISM training He said, “It is the 210-060 practice exam doll Examprepwell CISM training S300-115 Dumps my sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She just knew that Santa would bring 210-060 practice exam 70-347 pdf it. “I told him that maybe Santa was going to Examprepwell Examprepwell bring it . He said, “No, Santa can’t go where my sister CISM training is…. I have to 70-347 pdf give the Examprepwell doll to my Mama to take to her. “I Examprepwell 210-060 practice exam asked him where his siter was. He looked at 70-347 pdf me with the Learningpdf S300-115 Dumps saddest eyes and said, “She S300-115 Dumps was gone to be with 210-060 practice exam Jesus.

My Daddy says that CISM training Mamma is going to have to go Learningpdf be with her.” My heart nearly stopped beating. Then the Examprepwell boy Examprepwell looked at me Learningpdf again Learningpdf and said, “I Learningpdf told my Daddy to tell my Mama not to go yet. I S300-115 Dumps told him to tell her to wait till S300-115 Dumps I got back from the store.” Then he asked me if i wanted to see his picture.

I S300-115 Dumps love my Mama so 1Z0-808 exam questions very much and I wish she dind not have to leave me.But Daddy says she 1Z0-808 exam questions will need to 1Z0-808 exam questions CISM training be with my sister.” I saw that S300-115 Dumps the little boy had lowered his head 210-060 practice exam and had grown so 70-347 pdf qiuet. While he was not looking I reached Examprepwell into my purse and pilled out a handful of bills. 70-347 pdf I asked the little 1Z0-808 exam questions 70-347 pdf boy, “Shall we count that miney one more time?” He grew excited 1Z0-808 exam questions and said, “Yes,I just Learningpdf know it CISM training has to be 1Z0-808 exam questions enough.” So I slipped 70-347 pdf my money in with his and 1Z0-808 exam questions we began to count 210-060 practice exam it .

I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy S300-115 Dumps had for Learningpdf his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.

With Quidditch Australia’s State Shield pencilled in for October 2018, player and coach applications for the Victorian Leadbeaters are now open!

The Association is pleased to announce the selection panel for the 2018 Leadbeaters; Congratulations to Nicola Gertler, Dean Rodhouse, Nathan Morton, Edward Vienet, Michael Braham and Ben Watson on their appointment. The Leadbeaters are now seeking a coach to take on the helm of leading the team to another back to back victory for Victoria.

The role of the coach is as follows;

The Leadbeaters coach will be responsible for the overall coaching and training based management of the team. The successful applicant will be expected to act in conjunction with selectors to decide on team composition, train the Leadbeaters over several months and run the team on the day of the Championships. The coach will also be required to assist with the logistical organisation of the trip. The coach will become a member of the selection panel if they are not already a member of the panel.

The time commitment of the coach would be to run one or two training sessions per week as well as travelling with the team to the championships in October (currently forecast for October). All travel, accommodation and spending money is the responsibility of the individual, however, the VQA intends to fundraise for the team which should hopefully assist some of the financial burdens of the players and coach.

Applications for the coaching position may come from individuals who intend to be playing or non-playing and are required to state their intentions when completing this application.

Applicants will be required to submit an application, including a letter of recommendation. The letter of recommendation may be from any individual of the applicant’s choosing, not exclusive of a member of their own team or individual outside the quidditch community.

Applications for the coaching position close at midnight, Friday 27th July. 

————————————————————————————————————-

Players!

All Victorians wishing to play for the Leadbeaters must completed the form below and attend any but preferably all of the following sessions;

Melbourne MudBash, 21st – 22nd July: Players who sign up by Friday, 20th July, will be viewed at Mudbash participating with their club teams. The intent of watching players at club event is to see them working in a familiar environment with players they train with. The selectors hope this should allow players the opportunity to demonstrate the skills and discipline they have within their club lineup. Players will not be judged on the final position of their team within the tournament, however, will be judged on their teamwork.

Try-out #1, 2:30 – 5pm,  Sunday 5th August: Players will participate in a serious of drills and scratch matches with the intent of playing with new teammates and exhibiting their skills and versatility.

Try-out #2, 2:30 – 5pm,  Sunday 12th August: Players will participate in a serious of drills and scratch matches with the intent of playing with new teammates and exhibiting their skills and versatility.

Players who cannot attend any of these events may still apply however will be required to provide a justification as to their non-attendance. The two try-out sessions are free, however, signing up BEFORE the event is mandatory to ensure insurance requirements are met. Applicants must be members of the Victorian and Australian Quidditch Associations, as well as meeting the eligibility criteria as follows;

 

  1. You currently play for a club from that state;

  2. You currently live in that state;

  3. The team that you first played quidditch for is from that state,

  4. You spent the majority of school (K-12, at least 7 years cumulative).in that state

 

If you have different states for each of the above criteria, you may choose which team you wish to apply for.

Once you are chosen to represent a state as either a player or reserve, you forfeit your eligibility based on clauses B, C and D. For example consider a player who grew up in Melbourne spending all of their schooling there, but then went to NSW for university and began playing quidditch there. If they choose to represent NSW this year, they may only play for NSW in future years until they play for a club team in a different state.

Withdrawing your application or failure to make the state team you applied for does not forfeit your eligibility to apply for other teams. You may apply for multiple states but must withdraw all but one application before final selections.

As these are new regulations for 2018, we will be allowing people to use their eligibilities under B and C even if they have already represented a state, as they may not have been aware of these options. Going forward however, these criteria will apply. – Quidditch Australia

 

The two try-out sessions are open to all applicants. From these events, the selection panel will determine the necessity to hold further invitational sessions or begin selecting the squad.

Player applications close on Friday, 10th August 2018, however application sooner allows the selectors more time to consider your application. 

Questions may be directed to the Leadbeaters Selection Panel at team@quidditchvictoria.com.

  1. I am also putting forward an application to the Thunderbirds as a back up option but I would much rather play for the Leadbeaters.
