"The very best of evenings to you all! No, to our new students, welcome! Hogwarts will be your home for the next seven years, but they'll be the most trying years of your lives. I encourage you all to make the most of it and get to know your yearmates; they'll be the ones you'll have to rely on most. To our old students, welcome back! Another year full of magical education awaits you! As always, if you have any issues throughout the school year please be sure to seek guidance from your respective prefects and/or Head of House," Evangeline pauses and smiles. "Now, onto more exciting news. I'm sure you're all very interested in the goblet that stands in the middle of the hall. I'm happy to announce that Hogwarts will be hosting the 2037 - 2038 Triwizard Tournament! Our friends from Ilvermorny School in America and Beauxbatons Academy in France will be arriving in the coming weeks to partake. Of course, the champions will be chosen by an impartial selector: the Goblet of Fire! Nonetheless, there's an age line; only students who have completed their OWLs will be able to put their name in the running," she pauses again, waiting for the chatter to die down. "Champions will be selected the evening of Halloween. That's all for the time being. Let the opening feast commence!"
