Introduction to Shaoman 2019 banner


Shaoman 2019 was held November 4 - 11. The theme of the freeweek was Hogwarts TarValon.Net. Each membership group respresented a Hogwarts house, tailored to their specific character.

There were 5 events run and many people participated in them. Each of the participating members received a Harry Potter themed OWLs grades. The group with most points from all activities and highest grades was the House Cup winner.

7 groups participated in the Group theme contest and apart from site-wide voting, the groups also sent in winners in different categories - "Best colors", "Best mascot", "Best motto" and "Best representation of House". Alfter all the points and votes were calculated, there was a tie between two groups and so they were both the winner.

As usual, Spamathon also occured this Shaoman and it was themed after the general theme, making it a Quidditch match between the Houses.
