Background: Gabriel Kisber and I were inspired to create a fold that related to our coming up Convention theme and our CLTC 5, which is Harry Potter. We divided into three stations:
Scene it
and divided the members into the 4 houses, Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff. During each rotation the leaders kept track of how many points that house made, and in the end we added them all up to announce a winner.

In potions- members were tested on their knowledge of felix fellexus, polyjuice, wolfbane, and skelegro potions. Each house was asked to create a recipe of each potion within a time limit of 10 minutes and whatever house accurately created the correct potion won 50 house points. (we made smoothies)

In scene it- members were asked questions about Harry Potter.

In dueling- members from two different houses created spells and dueled each other using wands.

Scavenger Hunt- members of all houses were given clues as to where all seven horcruxes were and were asked to find them.

Before the fold, each member received a letter that stated this:
Dear Master or Misses ,
We are writing to you from our desks here at the prestigious school of witchcraft and wizardry of Hogwarts. We trust this letter will find you well, I sent it first class by our special homing bird system.
We are pleased to tell you that you have passed the examination in wizardry you took with us here last month, and that on Saturday, December 10, you will be invited to station 9 3/4 (Jeremy Reisman’s House, 1801 Brooksedge Cove, Germantown, TN, 380138) from 7:00- 9:00 for a night of spells, potions, and more! I must warn you that if you do any mischief or wandering into the muggle’s world, you will sadly be expelled.
Please remember that you are one of the fortunate few to be born with your gift, a gift that must be used but not abused, you are wonderful wizard/witch!
Your Awesome Professors,
Professor Gabriel Kisber of the Dark Arts
and Professor Sonja Lipman of Charms
P.S. Please remember to leave your cauldrons and owls at home, seeing that they will not be necessary!

Be there or suffer a Dementor's kiss

At the end we related Harry Potter to Judaism-
