WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

The location of a much-anticipated conference has changed in Wichita Falls due to the inclement weather. 

The Southwest Quidditch Conference was originally slated to take place at the soccer fields on the west side of Memorial Stadium. 

But as Newschannel 6 has learned, the conference will now take place at Hoskins Field on the east side of Memorial Stadium. 

People are coming from all over to participate. One married couple traveled 4 and a half hours to compete. Their team is on a winning streak so they feel good about tomorrow.

They say while they have only been playing together for few months, being married helps with chemistry on the field, “we've been playing together off and on since we started and then it was just last semester that we continuously started playing together as a pair and working together. we're very excited. it's going to be interesting with the weather especially.”

The conference will begin Saturday morning at 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The event is free for the public to attend.
