Alright then, here's who's said they'll play. From Gryffindor, Ron Weasley and Neville Longbottom. From Ravenclaw, Linus Moon, Morag MacDougal, and Padma Patil. From Hufflepuff, Susan Bones said she was maybe interested, and also that Wayne Hopkins, Bobby Stebbins, and Eloise Midgen might play. From Slytherin, Harry Marvolo, Teddy Nott, and me, and also Pansy if I can talk her back into it.

We'll be playing this in two rounds, 6 December and 13 December, between lunch and dinner, I think, with maybe a final showdown in the evening after dinner. I'll work out the exact schedule once I know exactly who's playing. Susan, are you? And your housemates, or not? Anyone else from Gryffindor or Ravenclaw?

We'll do it round-robin style so you won't just be eliminated when you lose, and even if you're dead certain you can't beat Teddy or Ron (and really, I know I won't be in the final round) you can still beat out everyone else.

Jones suggested a cake as a trophy, do people like that idea? Because that wouldn't be too hard to arrange. You could take it back to your house and eat it with your house mates.

There are so many students here that play chess I was thinking it might be fun to hold a chess tourney.

I think I'd just include first years, though, because usually you get better at chess the longer you've played it, and so letting older students play wouldn't be fair. Though maybe I could make an exception for Hufflepuffs... or at least for older students who only learned in the last two years, I don't know if there's any like that. They probably wouldn't want to play chess with firsties anyway.

Is anyone interested? There are chess clocks in a closet in the library so we'll have those, and we could surely scrounge up enough boards and pieces.

P.S. I hope it's alright that I used the charm to make it so everyone could see it. If there are any teachers that have run chess tourneys before could they please let me know? I think I know how it's supposed to work but I've never even played in one before let alone organised one and it would be nice to find out if I'm understanding it right, that is if you have the time to talk to me about it.
