“I was very happy to have everyone here in Butler County. The facility is gorgeous, and both days the weather was perfect - I couldn’t ask for a better regional. All the teams came out, played hard, and had a lot of fun. I was impressed from top to bottom with how efficiently everything was run. This was a good weekend of fun, clean quidditch, and I’m very happy to be the regional coordinator of the inaugural Great Lakes regional championship. I look forward to many more!” said Alex Scheer, USQ Great Lakes Regional Coordinator.
