The Central Florida Slug Club is a group of Harry Potter fans from the Central Florida area. Meetings are held at least monthly, primarily in Orlando but occasionally in Lakeland, St. Petersburg, Daytona Beach and other locations throughout the area. We're also a new chapter of The Harry Potter Alliance as of mid-May 2014. Keep an eye here or on any of the social media sites linked below for information on meetings or HPA campaign involvement!

Hufflepuffs: A Dedication

In wizarding history, we often hear of tales of Gryffindors, Ravenclaws, and Slytherins: Gryffindors for their bravery, Ravenclaw for their wisdom, and Slytherins for their ambition. As a Gryffindor myself, I have a hard time grasping the concept that Hufflepuffs don’t get enough love in the wizarding world, which is why I am dedicating this blog post to them! Here are a few reasons why I love…

The Legendary Butterbeer Float

Butterbeer float. I heard this term and thought it sounded absolutely amazing. Ice cream AND butterbeer? Divine.

Then I realized you could use butterbeer ice cream and butterbeer to create the sweetest, most decadent treat in all of the Wizarding World.

This item is not an official menu item at Hogsmeade nor Diagon Alley so if you ask a team member to make you one, they probably won’t know what…

Book Club Meetup - Chamber of Secrets

Book Club Meetup – Chamber of Secrets

Words by Terrea Riggs. Pictures by Terrea Riggs and Alyssa Hancock.

Nothing beats the feeling of being welcomed home. I haven’t been away, I just never get over walking into an event late and being greeted warmly by my wizard friends (and this time the bartender, too!). So even though I had to work at my muggle job at 1am on Tuesday, my trek out to the George and Dragon Pub for book club on…

A Slytherin Call to Arms

A Slytherin Call to Arms

ATTENTION ALL SLYTHERINS!!! YOUR HOUSE NEEDS YOU!

As we all know, Slytherin is the superior house at Hogwarts, but how can we flaunt this superiority when we are currently in last place in the house ranks? We need to show these Mudbloods and lesser wizards how serious we can be when it comes to earning house points. This is why I call on you all to step up and take pride in your house! Let us…

I am a Harry Potter fan and i would like to know more information of the Central Florida Slug Club. What is it you do? What is the Harry Potter Alliance?

The Central Florida Slug Club is a Harry Potter fan club based in Orlando, Florida. We meet up around twice a month to talk about Harry Potter and to socialize with other Harry Potter fans. We do a variety of different activities including library discussions, social outings like mini golf or laser tag, and visits to the theme parks. We even have a book club within the group that meets every two months. The book club alternates between HP re-reads and other non-HP books chosen by members. You can RSVP for any meetup at our Facebook page or our Meetup.com page

The Harry Potter Alliance (also known as “the HPA”) is an organization that uses the power and energy of fandom (numerous fandoms, not just HP) to help create social change. Examples of some of their work include raising $123,000 for Partners in Health in Haiti after the earthquake and donating over 120,000 books to underprivileged and underserved readers through their Accio Books donation drive.

The HPA has chapters in a number of different countries around the world. We are one of their newest chapters. Our HPA group is a subdivision of the group (within the Slug Club, we call that group “S.P.E.W.”), with a few of our members getting together to help the community. We have already participated in this year’s Accio Book drive and will be meeting on September 28th for our first formal meeting and to discuss our next project. If you’re interested in getting involved with our HPA/S.P.E.W. group, they have a separate FB group located here.

Slug Club House Points Standings - September 18th, 2014

House Points

Here are the House points as of yesterday, September 18th.

Gryffindor is off to a great start! The question is – can they hold on to it? Gryffindor started off high in the rankings last term as well but that wonderful energy did not last for long.  Hufflepuff has been quiet over the last two years, with members being more interested in having fun rather than worrying about the pressures of the…

Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes

Ah, another year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry has begun. The Great Hall is once again alive with noise and the smell of food, quidditch tryouts are once again underway, professors are diligently preparing students for exams, and students are once again going mad trying to keep up with the load of homework. Fret no more my dear fellow classmates! For I have the answer that will…
