LSU is home to one of the most veteran quidditch programs in the country. Founded in the spring of 2008, the Flying Tigers began as a ragtag group of friends who loved Harry Potter and wanted to try something new. Now, in 2013, they are a squad of dedicated athletes who are determined to become the world champions of this fast-growing and fast-paced sport, and they intend to do just that at World Cup VI. This will be LSU’s fourth World Cup, and after two Elite Eight finishes, they are ready to go further and do everything necessary to take the coveted first place spot.
We have been preparing for this battle for months. We train every day of every week in an erratic coastal climate, and we put 110% of ourselves into every step we run, every pass we throw, and every breath we take. We eat, sleep, and breathe quidditch, and through our collective desire to win, we have grown into a close and loving family. We want to compete at the World Cup more than anything. It means the world to us.
Unfortunately, we've paid for all of the tournaments we've been to this year out of our own pockets, and this time, the tournament is all the way in Kissimmee, Florida. Baton Rouge is twelve hours from Kissimmee, and even without plane tickets, the trip will cost over $2500. We need your support - and we'll do anything we can possibly do to get it.
That’s why we set up this page – to help you help us! We want to show each and every one of our supporters that we care about them, so we personalized our perks as much as we could. When we say that we love each and every one of you, we are being sincere, and we’ll do anything we can – quite literally! – to demonstrate this to you.
Additionally, we will release special content for every $200 milestone we reach (think Brad Armentor playing in a wig!), and we will randomly include awesome swag like stickers and pins in the merchandise packages we send out. So please – help us realize our goal of getting to World VI! Donate if you can – and if you can’t, help us spread the word! We appreciate your support more than you can ever know.
