    Student Clubs

    Update as of 03.08.2017

    From here on out Student Clubs will be kept track of in

    --> this spreadsheet <--

    YOU are responsible for adding your characters to their respective clubs. There are four tabs at the bottom, Clubs, Club Quidditch, Club Quodpot and Music Club. Please follow the formatting already in place on each tab. If you have any questions or need help, please get ahold of Bee via PM on Elsie's account!

    Remember there is still a five (5) club limit; we also request that students limit themselves to one (1) leadership position. President positions are kept track of here on this list. To take a president position simply post the following form wrapped in code tags, the president must be in fifth year or above and have been in the club for at least two years. Please post all presidential claims from the account in question, thank you!
    PHP Code:
    [code][@'First Last'[/code

    Each club is required to have a faculty advisor- ideally one whose interests or skills line up with the club subject. Faculty advisors are also recorded here, if you have an applicable staff member who would like to advise a club, please post here with the following code.
    PHP Code:
    [code]@'First Last'[/code

    The clubs included here were taken by suggestion. If there is a desire to see a club added to the list or we find that some clubs are not gaining enough attention, the list will be modified. Clubs' longevity are based on participation, so help us out!
     
    Members playing the advisor/presidents are encouraged to work together to create events/meetings for their respective clubs. They clearly do not have to be posted as often as stated in the description, but should have 1-2 IC meetings a year.

    Remember that our students do not have a time-turner, and so cannot be members of every club. Do not sign them up unless they have a genuine interest, and remember that a student in ten classes will not have as much spare time as a student in five.
    • Students have a 5-club limit - please choose carefully!
    • Students are limited to 1 leadership position, on a first-come, first-served basis for accepted characters only, no reservations!

    Members may also add clubs not currently found on this list.  To see a club added to the list please PM a member of staff; new ideas will be discussed and put to vote for inclusion. In order to be considered, clubs must:
    • Have a faculty advisor.
    • Be era appropriate.
    • Be realistic (no "“dragon-hunting clubs" if you want them to actually hunt dragons).
    • Have a president.



    Art Club

    An outlet for student's creative side, this club is largely for students who lack time in their schedules for regular art class, or simply for students who enjoy the class and would like more. The club covers several different periods of art and works on pieces from each style. An art show is set up at the end of the year to display member's artwork from the year.

    Astronomy Club

    For those with an increased interest in the cosmos, the Astronomy Club offers additional stargazing opportunities. The club meets weekly at night in the Astronomy tower. They focus on star charts, seasonal constellations and other cosmic phenomena. Students are allowed/encouraged to take on personal interests projects for house points.

    Book Club

    Separated into two subdivisions, Book Club is segregated by gender to maintain appropriate literary choices for young men and women. The club meets monthly in which they discuss the book they have read over the last month. Each meeting is facilitated by the presidents, including prompt questions and discussion questions to keep conversation flowing. Books are voted upon by the club at each meeting for the next meeting. Members are encouraged to bring suggestions for the next book choice as well as notes from the previous reading.

    Charms Club

    Charms Club provides students with the opportunity to seek out help for assignments in addition to a place where additional charms may be learned. Weekly meetings include discussions on charms, homework help, and the learning of new charms that are not included in the regular charms curriculum. This includes more everyday spells that are applicable to life after graduation.

    Club Quidditch

    Run like regular quidditch though with more opportunities to play. The rules are the same as school quidditch matches, though more lenient and focused on developing skills. There are two "captains" for Club Quidditch who are responsible for setting up teams and arranging the matches in addition to the faculty advisor who oversees and referees games. Girls are allowed to participate by must have proper permission gained from their guardians, they are still unable to play beater however, just like on the house teams.

    **In character ladies need permission to participate in Club Quidditch, though we will keep no record of it. You may add yourself to either team (though staff may switch you if teams are looking uneven AND if you have played guardians they also reserve the right to say no or pull the student from the club at their own discretion.**

    Club Quodpot

    Quidditch not enough broom sport to you? Starting in the 1885-1886 school year, now you can play quodpot as well!  The club meets once a week to discuss the less popular sport, and will hold scrimmage matches on the last Sunday of every month. Due to the fact that the game involves explosives, first years are permitted to join the club but not take part in scrimmages.

    **In character ladies need permission to participate in Club Quodpot, though we will keep no record of it. You may add yourself to either team (though staff may switch you if teams are looking uneven AND if you have played guardians they also reserve the right to say no or pull the student from the club at their own discretion.**

    Dueling Club

    Dueling Club is also separated into groups based on gender. Facilitated in the same manner that dueling tournaments are, students have weekly meetings to practice and learn new dueling spells in addition to actual duels with scheduled duels to be arranged and facilitated by the Faculty Advisor. The two clubs are separate to keep the odds even.

    Engaged club members will receive a +1 to their modifiers in the board's quarterly duels.

    Exploding Snap Club

    There are three variants of Exploding Snap. The first one, the "Classical" Game, is quite simple, however it requires some reflex. The rules are simple: when you see two identical pictures, hit the card with the top of your wand- one point is yours. The player with the most points wins the game. The hard part is, the cards shuffle faster and faster. The second one, the "Patience" Game, is a bit harder. You have twenty cards and you reveal them in pairs. You have to find two identical pictures. Cards explode soon after you reveal them for the first time (of course, if you don't find a pair before). The third variant is Bavarian Rules Snap. In this variant, cards are dealt in a circle, with identical cards to those already dealt being placed in the centre. The identical cards must be tapped in a limited time frame, or else all of the cards will explode. - €œHP Wiki on Exploding Snap

    Weekly meetings include learning sessions and practice, time to trade cards and round robin tournaments.

    Flying Club

    For students who enjoy flying but not playing quidditch, Flying Club offers pitch time to work on flying skills beyond those learned in first year. School brooms are available to borrow if students do not have their own. Members are encouraged to organize races and other flying games during club meetings.

    Garden Club

    Garden club takes place in the greenhouses and goes beyond Herbology class in both magical and muggle plants. Members are responsible for assisting the caretaker in cultivating and maintaining the school's gardens and greenhouses. They are allowed to take on small personal plots in greenhouse five to grow their own plants and for research purposes. Members will learn about more exotic plans, additional magical properties of plants, muggle plants and how to maintain household gardens.

    President: @Gladiolus Sprout
    Faculty Advisor: @Mason Skeeter

    Gobstones Club

    In its standard play, a Gobstones player must capture all fifteen of their opponent's stones before the same is done to them. There are three other popular variants of Gobstones, however: "Classic" Game (where you have to knock seven Gobstones out of the circle before your opponent does), "Jack Stone" Game (where after four snaps your Gobstone must be the one closest to the Jack Gobstone) and the "Snake Pit" Game (which is similar to "Jack Stone", however instead of a Jack Gobstone there's a hole on the centre of the circle). - HP Wiki on Gobstones

    Students face off in weekly games and round robin tournaments organized by the club president and faculty advisor.

    History Club

    History Club was created for those students that didn't feel like they could sate their love for history in just their history related classes. Meetings are held once every week, during which the members usually have a discussion about the history related topic of the week. The club is also known to have the occasional 'special' meetings, like Trivia Night (or more like afternoon), re-enactments of important historical events and the annual club visit to the Museum of Magical Miscellany.

    Leisure Sports Club

    The Leisure Sports Club includes lawn tennis and badminton, allowing students to indulge in two of the fashionable sports of the era, as well as providing a ladylike sport option for all classes. Neither game has an official scoring system- each match agrees on their own, with a common variant having 2-4 players on each side with a player sitting out when they allow the ball or shuttlecock to drop- there was no scoring, with the last team with a player wins. Mixed-gender doubles are played for fun, however tournaments are divided based on gender. (Thanks Jenny!)

    Music Club

    For students who wish to continue to work on their musical skill but find themselves lacking in the space in their timetables or for students who wish for an extra space to practice their instruments. Students have access to the music classroom and instruments, in addition to their classmates and teacher's musical knowledge. Members have the opportunity to put on a semiannual performance for their classmates, one before the winter break and one before graduation. This also includes the school's Frog Choir. (Please specify which part or both of the music club you are a part of, IE: band and/or choir.)

    Potions Club

    Set up to be a club where students in need of practice or help with their potions assignments are given extra time and assistance to work on their potions skills. Members are able to work on assignments in addition to learning new potions and techniques not taught within the normal potions curriculum. Semiannual Potion Brewing Competitions will also be set up to earn house points.

    Transfiguration Club

    Transfiguration Club members receive help with homework assignments, as well as having the opportunity to practice Transfiguration related spells. Scheduled meetings occur once a week, but the club is open on a daily basis for students that might need help with their assignments or simply want to practice the spell learnt at class that day. Older students (Sixth years and up) interested in becoming Animagi may receive help from Professor ---, though they are not permitted to do anything in practice when not under his supervision.

    Wizard's Chess Club

    The enchanted variant of the classic board game in which the pieces move of their own accord when commanded by the player. When a piece is taken, it is removed by the attacking piece, often in a barbaric manner where the losing piece is smashed violently by the winning piece. Players move their pieces by speaking the name of the piece and the square it is to move to by algebraic notation. For example, "Knight to E5". Aside from the self-moving pieces, the rules of Wizard's Chess are exactly the same as muggle chess.- (Harry Potter Wiki) The moving pieces seem to be reasonably sentient and when unfamiliar with a player may obstinate and stubborn to listen. - €HP Wiki on Wizard's Chess

    Students face off in weekly meetings and tournaments. Beginners are encouraged to come and watch. They will then be taught game rules and play by other members and the faculty advisor.

    STUDENT CLUBS HAVE BEEN ROLLED OVER FOR THE 1887-1888 SCHOOL YEAR!

    That means presidential positions are OPEN on a first-posted-first-claimed basis! Please keep in mind characters must be at least 5th years and at least 2 years of participation in the club to be president.

    I strongly suggest that you take a look and make sure that your characters are listed correctly and that any students who were ousted during/because of the ban are removed. I will not be policing this, so you are responsible! Thanks!

    All additions from here on out should reflect their year for the 1887-88 school year!
