Ah sounds fun. I went to Accio 05 and that was fantastic fun, the feast on the Saturday was amazing and the Quidditch. I would love to go this time round but can’t afford it.

If I wasn’t scheduled to work that weekend, I would be there in a heart beat, especially because I was so disappointed that Sectus 2009 was cancelled.

Alas, it’s not to be, but if I can save up the money in time, LeakyCon here I come!
