Fidget the elf owl
A message for Captain John Umland
Tue Feb 28, 2017 18:04

Isis did not have her own personal owl, so she had selected one of the available school owls from the owlery. Fidget the elf owl seemed the most friendly, and so she sent him off to Aladren commons. Fidget flew with gusto, puffing out his feathered chest proudly as he bolted out passed the bigger owls. Not a lot of people picked the happy little guy, so he was very glad to be selected for this delivery of the utmost importance, toting his envelope all the way to Aladren and dropping it off on the desk of one Mr. John Umland. It read as such:

Captain John Umland,

Congratulations on your promotion to Quidditch Captain, although Iím certain it comes as no surprise after your reign as Assistant Captain. This year, as you probably already know, you will be responsible for posting sign-ups, running tryouts, reserving the Pitch, and scheduling and facilitating team practices. You will also have to select an Assistant Captain. My recommendation is Louis Valois.

If you would rather have a different assistant or feel you cannot carry out these duties, please owl me so that we may discuss your reasoning and figure out other options for the teamís future. Otherwise, feel free to inform Louis yourself. Congratulations once again, and good luck this season.

Isis Carter.
