Baggins Birthday Picnic Party in LA!!

August 23, 2005 at 6:43 pm by xoanon  - 

Arwen writes: We are pleased to announce that TORn will hold their annual Los Angeles Baggins Birthday Picnic on Sunday September 25th, from noon to 6pm, in Griffith Park next to the Merry-Go-Round (see below for directions).

In what has now become a tradition, we will have three main contests:

  • a trivia contest where your knowledge of all things Tolkien will be tested;
  • a costume contest open to all ages (two categories: children/teens, and adults)
  • and again our very popular impersonation contest, where participants outshine each other in their rendition of lines from the movies (this year, pick preferably from all three Extended Editions, Fellowship, Two Towers and Return Of The King).

As you know, this is a potluck event, so we need all Middle-earth picnic attendees to bring as much food, drinks, plates, utensils and napkins as possible. For any information regarding the picnic and for food contributions please contact Arwen@theonering.net.

We hope to see many LA Ringers on Sept 25th in Griffith Park, for what we hope will be a party of special magnificence!
