Teams from the area joined together this weekend to compete in the United States Quidditch Northwest Regional Championships...Yes, Quidditch like Harry Potter. The game is played exactly like in the books and movies except the players do not fly, but they do have to run with a broom between their legs.

This "muggle" version is full contact and is said to get it's inspiration from rugby and dodge ball. 6 Teams played in a tournament at Columbia Park on both Friday and Saturday according to news reports.
