Murray Resubmits Request for Quidditch Tournament
MURRAY, KY - The city of Murray plans to resubmit an application to host a tournament based on the "Harry Potter" game Quidditch.
The Murray Convention and Visitors Bureau hoped to land the event for 2013, but its application was never received.
Convention and Visitors Bureau Executive Director Erin Carrico told the Murray Ledger & Times it appears the application was lost in cyberspace.
Carrico is also feeling a bit better about this bid for 2014 because the package will include the fact that Murray State University is showing stronger interest in the sport. An organizational meeting has been planned for late August on the campus to discuss the formation of an actual league.
The game became popular with the rise of the "Harry Potter" books and movies.
