A friend posted this on Facebook, which got many of us geeks very excited -- The Harry Potter Open.
From the Facebook event page:
"Yes, really.This sounds like fun, I wonder what the motions will be. Too bad that the "Is Snape evil?" question has been answered in the last book.
Saturday 31 July 2010 is Harry Potter's birthday. Celebrate it in style, in Birmingham, in debate form.
Reg is £30 a team, or £25 if you come in a suitable magical costume.
There will be food, there will be drink, and of course, there will be Harry Potter motions."
This is the event calendar page on British Debate:
For the geeks among us I'd also like to remind of AnimeExpo's Otaku Parliamentary Debate.
