Welcome to ℌ𝔬𝔤𝔴𝔞𝔯𝔱𝔰 ℌ𝔦𝔤𝔥 𝔖𝔠𝔥𝔬𝔬𝔩
Have
you been looking for a solid and progressive education in the art of chess? While at the same time making new friends, competing and having
fun? All in the magic universe of
J. K. Rowling's
Harry potter books?

What we can offer you.
Hang on a mo eager student. We need to make sure the Sorting Hat is ready for your grand entrance and possible acceptance into one of our Four Houses first 🔨🛎️!🔊🎩😴
Well since hes lost at the moment, we shall proceed with explaining the program:
A.
After joining this club, you will be required to take this  Sorting Hat Quiz
The result of the test must then be submitted in this forum:
https://www.chess.com/clubs/forum/view/sorting-ceremony

- At the moment we have
Slytherin House Common Room 🐍
up and running.

- We are very proud to announce the creation of the Gryffindor House Common Room 🦁

- Introducing  Ravenclaw House Common Room🐦‍⬛
 

- And we now complete this section with the birth of
House Hufflepuff Common Room 🦡

B.
We will now send out Messenger Owls to invite, and make sure new members will be placed in the correct Houses, and that we are all interconnected. We will then go into a short time period of intense planning. Each House will propose, vote and select our final roster of professors in the following chess & Quidditch subjects:

(a) Astronomy Professor & Quidditch Organizer - Someone who has experience in creating tournaments and Club Events. If you don't have the experience but are willing to learn, that's fine too. Just at long as you are active in helping to create and monitor the games in our upcoming Quidditch House Cups🏆(Chess matches).

(b) Defense against the Dark Arts Professor & Quidditch Beater - A tactical, positional (and often) defensive player. Your job will be to use the Bludgers (chess pieces) to temporarily knock out🥊 chasers and stop them from scoring!

(c) Dark Arts Professor (Gambits) & Quidditch Chaser - Your job will be to constantly chase down the
opposing teams  Quaffle (King), while attempting to quickly, surprisingly and creatively fight through the defenders. A risky job indeed!

(d) Flying Instructor (speed chess) & Quidditch Seeker - You will be someone who's at least decent at speed chess (Blitz or/and Bullet). Catching the Golden snitch (trying to win the game) quickly, and teaching others to do so is the main part of this interesting job. The Seeker is usually a small and very fast player 🚀🌠

(e) House Caretaker - and finally we need someone to moderate the chats (notes) and be in charge of Your House Common Room. We need someone kind and firm when they have to be. A most important position that even comes with a promotion!


C.
And now it is time to reveal the Curriculum for 2024.
We will compete in fierce (but friendly) chess matches between the Four Houses. There will be competitions off the board as well. You will be quizzed, trained
and otherwise tested to your absolute limits. We will learn how to use all the great tools available to us on chess.com. And on top of all that, there will be great prizes and awards to win. Like the ultimate prize of  Headmaster or Headmistress 😱😵 and much much more..

Now you may be asking if all of this is even possible to create. My answer is, time will tell. But let me leave you with a great quote:
"It is important to fight and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then can evil be kept at bay though never quite eradicated."
- Albus Dumbledore (The Half-Blood Prince).
