Posted in Uncategorized on September 20, 2014 by carpefuturum

Many thanks to those who have participated in this group over the years!

The group is now closed. You will still be able to participate in HPA events as an individual (check the HPA website), or you can join our sister organization, Defense Against the Dark Arts, the Harry Potter Meetup Group of Northern Va, which hosts both social and charitable events in the area.

Good luck and take care! We know you are awesome people, who are doing awesome things in the world!

Want to Take Over Carpe Futurum?

Posted in Uncategorized on July 26, 2014 by carpefuturum

Many thanks to everyone who has participated in Carpe Futurum over the past few years! Your sense of service and dedication are greatly appreciated, both by us and those you have helped.

Unfortunately, neither Kate nor I are able to devote the time and energy to this HPA chapter that it deserves. If you’re interested in taking over management of this chapter, please e-mail carpefuturum@gmail.com by August 31, 2014. If no one volunteers, this chapter will be closed. However, you will still be able to participate in HPA events as an individual (check the HPA website), or you can join our sister organization, DADA, which hosts both social and charitable events in the Northern Virginia area.

Again, many thanks to all who have donated and participated!

Sundays: Harry Potter Movie Review

Posted in Uncategorized on May 30, 2011 by carpefuturum

Join DADA, the Northern Virginia Harry Potter Meetup, for a virtual rewatch of the Harry Potter movies. Each Sunday at 8pm ET, we’ll be rewatching a film and sharing online our thoughts and reactions, heartfelt and snarky alike. Put in the movie, pick your poison (Facebook, Twitter, livestream, etc.) and log in at 8pm Eastern to watch!

The Twitter hashtag is #hpreview. Learn more at http://hpmoviereview.wordpress.com.

We had a great time last night with Sorceror’s Stone and coined a new phrase: “Stop, drop and troll.” Next up: Chamber of Secrets on June 5.
