    What: Spreading Awareness For Half-Breed Rights Ball
    Who: Acacia Ruskin is hosting it, though has a few NPC sponsors to help with decorations and food. ACAB welcome, preferred 3+ rep, but not fully required. Supporters encouraged, skeptics welcome, haters are free to post and protest.
    Where: Hogsmeade Hall (Free Of Charge Is Good For Acacia.)
    Why: To get further support of Half-Breeds rights, and to give more information about Half-Breeds, as well as hope to dismiss stereotypes of people who are Half-Breeds.
    When: November 17th, 1887
    Forum: Would love one, if that is OK.

    With some anonymous sponsors help, decorations have been paid for, and the Hall has been spelled to look nice (though Acacia had no part in that, given she is not old enough to do magic outside of school). The hall has also been spelled to be larger than usual, to fit more people inside. Food has been served, and fliers are handed out with information in support of Half-Breed rights, as well as requests to support the cause (Supporters and Sponsors Needed). Acacia has also brought a first draft of her book, in hopes of finding a publisher, or friends of one.
    Set created by me! Check out more at my graphics shop!

    What: Puddlemere United v. Holyhead Harpies Victorian ManCave Evening
    Who: Thom to host for male friends and acquaintances. Invited:
    @August Echelon-Arnost@Leon Lupin@Ryder Lukeson
    @Phineas Black@Aldous Crouch@Roberto Devine
    @Nathaniel Gallivan@Roman CrouchMitch Quiddell
    @Wesley Cavanaugh@Charles Macmillan@Regan Pendergast
    @Edmund Grimm@Henrie León@Theodore Gallivan
    *Blank spaces are bodies. I ran out of played males I thought Thom would be reasonably friendly with. If you have someone you want to get added to this event, hit me up; otherwise assume those are NPC Black's members or something.
    Where: Thom's Quidditch box
    Why: Because Thom's getting cabin fever not being able to host any parties with his pregnant wife. This party may be taking place in a Quidditch box but in addition to the game it'll be a general scotch drinking/cigar smoking/politics discussing manly men's night out.
    When: Nov 11th; boozing and such starts up to two hours prior to the start of the game, which takes place in the evening. Guests can arrive whenever convenient. Supper will be available during the game.
    Forum: Nope, just a PSA! Anyone on the invite list can shout if they'd like a thread, otherwise just assume it happened and was grand!

    What: The Conservative Calling with Stephen Flint
    Who: Members of the upper and middle class who are known to hold conservative opinions, and a few others that Stephen personally feels can be brainwashed into supporting a conservative candidate. Any women invited would likely be UCPB and eligible to vote. Stephen will simply "forget" to invite muggleborns.
    Where: Hogsmeade Ballroom
    Stephen will be discussing the issues important to conservatives, including the dangers of associating with the muggle crown once more (not to be confused with mixing muggle and magical blood, which Stephen will be avoiding due to halfbloods in the crowd), the problems of half-breeds, and most importantly staying true to their roots and treasuring their current values.
    When: November 15
