Short Summary

When Hofstra's Flying Dutchmen Quidditch team was established two years ago no one could have predicted that it would rise from obscurity to one of the top teams in the world and the number one team in New York. We've placed 3rd in the Fall 2012 Northeast Regionals and 2nd in the 2013 Shellshocking Spectular hosted by UMD. We've grown and bonded as a team and have never been stronger than we are today. Now we're ready to tackle one of our biggest tournaments yet, the sixth annual World Cup being held in Kissimee Florida on April 13th and 14th 2013. But the trip is expensive and we need your help to make it! Even the smallest donations are appreciated and will help us get one step closer to making our second World Cup appearance!

What We Need & What You Get

All funds raised will go directly to helping the Flying Dutchmen reach Florida. We're looking for at least 2000$ to cover the costs of airfare, hotels and transportation once we're in Kissimee. We have a variety of perks in return for your generous support, including quidditch-style wristbands and car magnets, personalized brooms and jerseys (made by Flying Dutchmen team members!), a signed team picture and more!

**If you donate at any increments below 50$, you receive all the listed perks below that increment. So if you donate 40$, you receive the picture, the wand, the wrist band etc. However if you donate 100$, you receive the jersey, the car magnet, the team picture etc (but not the broom). Likewise if you donate 75$, you receive the broom, the picture, the wand etc (but not the car magnet).

The Impact

I think it's safe to say that every person who's ever heard of "muggle" quidditch is a little apprehensive at first. Running around on brooms, you say? Calling dodgeballs "bludgers" and volleyballs "quaffles"? But the impact quidditch has had on the Flying Dutchmen has been enormous. We came together as strangers and ended up forming our own quirky family. We've been challenged at every practice and tournament to be the best that we can be, not only for ourselves but for our teammates. We've battled through rain, sleet and snow to prove to the quidditch world that we are a force to be reckoned with. Reaching World Cup VI will be the ultimate testament to our determination, our dedication and our love for the sport and each other.

Other Ways You Can Help

We understand that not everyone can make a donation at this time, but there are still ways to support the team! Spread the word, reach out to your friends and family and share our cause on social networks! Or check out our online store, The Flying Market at http://www.cafepress.com/huquidditch for a variety of quidditch-themed paraphanelia (all proceeds go to supporting our team, from acquiring new equipment to funding future travel).
