The following individuals will be running for the following Executive Board positions: Vice President, Communications Director, Media Director, Intramural League Captains (Berserkers, Falcons, Jaguars, Outlaws, Pulverizers). Please take some time to read their statements regarding their bid for the position. Elections will be held at ECQ’s banquet and elections from 5:00pm to 8:00pm in Piano Row L151 on November 21st, 2014. RSVP to the Facebook event here. Voting will be in-person at the event; no absentee ballots will be permitted. We look forward to seeing you at elections!
I was appointed as VP in the fall and now officially have to run and get voted in. So far I’m pretty alright at what I do.
The communications director needs to know how to (obviously) communicate with people both in and out of the Emerson community. As a tour guide I often have to communicate with prospective students and their families. I have worked in customer service jobs as well, which require fast-paced thinking and good people skills. Being a Marketing major I believe that I also have knowledge that I could use to assist the Sales/Marketing Director with our social media content and the general promotion of ECQ. I really love the Quidditch community and the sport itself and I think it would be great to be part of the Executive Board in order to improve and expand its reach both in House League and the World Cup.
There have been no nominations for Media Director.
Please elect me for poorly thought out jokes, bad movie references, lame parties, a winless season and more awkwardness than you could ever hope for.
DO IT. NOW.
I want to be America’s Next Top Falcons Captain so I can lead the team to victory alongside the love of my life, Lindsay Geller. Together we will bring la junta to new heights, both in terms of attractiveness and Quidditch success. While I’m currently working on a video speech that will be a much better pitch, here are three quick reasons why I’m the right guy for the job: 1) I will probably cry if I don’t get elected, 2) my legs look great from all the walking I’ve been doing in Europe, and 3)Lindsay and I would literally be THE cutest as co-captains.
Although I am just a freshman this year and it is my first year ever playing Quidditch, I feel that I have what it takes to be a captain for the Falcons. Throughout high school I was involved with sports teams every season, as both a player and a captain. I understand what it means to be on a team as well as how to coach/captain a team to play its very best. Even now I am playing on Boston Riot and learning so much more about the sport, faster than I thought possible. With one my teams captains leaving at the end of this semester the Falcons will be losing a beloved leader to teach us how to be the best we can be, and play to the best of our abilities. And with our teams endless potential, losing a great captain to hone our skills is not okay. That is why I believe I should be elected captain of the Faneuil Falcons because although I may not have as much experience as some of the other players on my team, I understand what it means to have fun, play as a team and most importantly look good while doing it. So please elect me, Josh Friedman as captain of the Faneuil Falcons
I am interested in being the Faneuil Falcons captain because I truly want to make a difference. I love playing Quidditch so much that I want to be in a position that will help make the experience great for everyone.
In my time of playing Quidditch, I have learned many things. Of course, I definitely have room for improvement but that’s what I look forward to the most. The way I see it, everyone has room for improvement and I want to be able to help everyone as much as I can.
I know I would do a good job as a co-captain. I am passionate, friendly, team-spirited, and dedicated. For those of y’all who see me at practices and games, I can be seen dancing around, cheering for people, or taking pictures; however, when the situation calls for it, I can be serious. I am also always willing to help whenever and however I can. If you ask the members of the World Cup team, they will tell you that I run around campus delivering dumplings, despite not being on the team. That said, I am also willing to set up fundraisers to get the funds we need to get newer, better, or more much needed equipment.
As a freshman, I may not seem like someone who should be a captain or an E-board member, but I will put forth great effort to filling the role. Whether it is attending games, practices, or meetings, you can bet that I will be there giving it my all on and off the field.
Hi, I’m Sam Scarfone. Falcons Flock together. Play well, look better. I’m all about that team bonding. Viva la junta. Quack quack quack. And if you want a bigger stick between your legs then vote for me for the Faneuil Falcons captain! #floasted #zoasted
Back home at my high school the music wing was my home away from home and the students in it were my family. When I first arrived I was worried I wouldn’t find a place like that here. That was before I found the Faneuil Falcons. At a extremely rapid pace I have grown fond of every member on my team, and I’m sure they would all agree we are more than a team. To take the opportunity of being the captain of a team as impressive and attractive as ours would be an absolute honor. I may not have been playing for very long, but I have learned a lot in my time on the Falcons. Between what I have learned from my current Falcon captains as well as what I will learn from recently joining Boston Riot, I feel I could be a great asset for Captain. I have been in leadership positions before back in high school. I was Tri-M president as well as Vice President of our Thespian Society. I would, of course, be a fair captain and would make sure everyone gets equal playing time. I also will make sure to have as much time for my team as possible. I view my responsibility as a captain as one thing: to give back as much, if not more, opportunity and spirit as given to me by this team. What this team puts in I will put out tenfold. Falcons vote for me Brian Tolep to help head this flock to victory during the spring semester QUACK QUACK QUACK!
I have been with the Falcons since the very first semester and I am an active member of the team. I think that my experience, my good relations with my teammates and my constant presence are assets that a captain needs. I love this team and I think that being a captain would be a great experience in itself.
Since my first day at Emerson College, I knew I wanted to paly quidditch. I was never a very sporty kid, but I figured, since I loved the books so much I didn’t have to be sporty. And I was right. The intramural league is one of the most accepting and open groups of people I have ever had the pleasure of getting to know. I want to be captain so I can encourage people like myself to join this community and play the amazingly hilarious game that is quidditch. I want to be captain because I want to lead the JP Jaguars, an amazing team with committed individuals, to victory while having a fun time. It can be difficult to balance the two. I’ve seen my future co-captain Leeanne Dillmann do it for two years now. And I think I would be able to do it as well. I love the Jaguars. And I love Emerson’s intramural league. The best way to show that love, I think, is to run for Jaguar captain and help kids like me find a community unlike any they had been a part of before.
“Michael Kiaunis.” Two words? A name? A state of mind? No. “Michael Kiaunis” is not any of those things. “Michael Kiaunis” is a Captain. Your captain. “Michael Kiaunis” will take the Jaguars, and bring them to the top. And do you know what happens when we get to the top? I sure don’t. I am “Michael Kiaunis” and, with your vote, we can get to the top together, and figure out what the heck we do once we get there. If appointed Captain of our humble Quidditch team, I will bring more pep and spirit to our already fabulous team. Following in the footsteps of the beautiful Jagger Kugler I, Mick Kiaunis, will attend every practice and game throughout the season and make sure everyone has as much fun as possible. Our biggest problem at the moment is representation at games and practices. Without the entire team at all of our games, our chances of winning are significantly lower than if we had a full group. I will push for more players to be at the games, and make sure those who attend them regularly are rewarded. I really don’t know what else to write here so I’m just gonna post so Ruby Tuesday lyrics to take up as much space as possible: Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday Who could hang a name on you? When you change with every new day. Still I’m gonna miss you. Well that took up some good space and I’m done now. Leap, Kill, Love <3
I’ve been on the Outlaws for 4 years now. I love the outlaws with all my heart. This team has been the bright light throughout my Emerson career. I have experience both house league and world cup. I know what it takes to win and more importantly what it takes to be a team. I want the outlaws to be loved again in the league and want every single person on the team to get play time, feel valued and improve. This team has given me so much and I just want to give it back. oh, and I BLEED BLUE
I was captain of the Outlaws in the 2012-2013 season, when we last won the Griffith Cup(!!!!) and am currently one of the captains of Emerson’s world cup team. With my involvement on both sides of quidditch at this school, I think that I have a good grasp of how to balance fun and lightheartedness with a desire to compete. You guys already know what I can do on the field, and I want to use my knowledge and experience with the game to help the Outlaws win the Cup again.
My last two years of school have been hectic to say the least. And what I have missed most of the things I was forced to sacrifice is Quidditch. And more than that, I’ve missed my team. As my graduation date approaches, I am ready to get back to my favorite team on the planet and play with them. But more than that, I would like to leave them with something valuable. As captain, I hope to bring them together as a family even closer than they are now with the help of Kieran Collier and welcome all future Pulvies with a smile and instill our team with a sense of positivity and determination. I want nothing more than the Pulvierizers to be a much bigger part of my time and legacy at Emerson.
I’ve really come to love Quidditch starting out freshmen year I was hesitant to join, but spring semester I found just how enjoyable it was and by this semester I really bonded with my team to the point where they are a huge part of my self-identity. I want to keep that going with the Pulverizers, they have been so welcoming and kind to me I just want to keep the tradition going and make sure that future students feel the same way. Also I’m competitive with an athletic background and this serves as a great outlet for my own personal health and I think have a lot to offer in the way of staying injury-free and excelling gameplay.
The reason I am interested in running for team captain of the Park Street Pulverizers is because from this fall season I feel I’ve been able to help lead my team into each game by putting us into situations where we could win or be close to. I also feel I was a huge asset to the team both offensively and defensively by, along with my former captain Kieran Collier and former captain Vernon Lickfield, by helping putting in strategy where it was needed and helped keep my team in games that almost appeared to be hopeless for us to win or make it a close game. And I’ve also been able to get extra experience and knowledge of the game of quidditch from playing for the Boston Riot which has given me much experience and ideas of strategy to be able to apply to the Pulverizers if I were to be elected captain. And because of these things I’ve done, I feel I can be a great leader for the Pulverizers and help them become a great team in house league play. But the biggest reason I want to be captain of the Pulverizers is because I feel they are such a great team full of wonderful and talented individuals and I would love to be able to lead them for many years and season to come.
