"Gobstones has never received the publicity Quidditch enjoys, but I was most upset to learn that our victory was not deemed worthy of a single line in your paper."
-- Grugwyn Rufford, Daily Prophet (DP1)
Mr Grugwyn Rufford, a member of the Welsh National Gobstones Team, wrote to the Daily Prophet complaining that they did not cover the tournament that had taken place on 10th June and, in particular, had not reported the resounding Welsh win over Hungary (DP1).
The dates on each issue of the newsletter do not match the dates of the stories, rather they indicate the date that the newsletter itself was published. The stories in the newsletters appear to date from approximately 1992-1993, the timeframe of the second and third books.
Although the date printed on the first Daily Prophet Newsletter (DP1) is 31 July 1998, the timeframe for this event is 1992-1993. As it appears in the first of the newsletters, it is more likely to be June of 1992 rather than 1993.
