The Oscars are coming, One Weekend to rule them all

party logo  

We are just a week and a half from ‘Ringers take Disneyland’ and our Feast of Starlight celebration at the ‘One Dragon, One Party’ event at the Cat & Fiddle.

So, here are a few little updates for each event to help you better plan your weekend.

One Dragon, One Party

The Cat & Fiddle needs a fairly accurate head count for the party in order to schedule staff, so we will close Pre-registration for the ‘One Dragon, One Party’ event on Sunday, Feb. 23 at Midnight, PST.

This will allow them to properly staff for the party and have the food on hand. Don’t worry about this meaning last-minute people can’t attend, it just means we are changing this a bit. (more…)

Call for papers: the third TORn Amateur Symposium

TORn Amateur Symposium The folks of the TORn message board Reading Room, the section of our forums devoted to discussion of Tolkien’s literary works, have just put out for a call for papers for the third TORn Amateur Symposium (also known as TAS3).

The first two TORn Amateur Symposiums last year published 22 essays on topics as varied as The Physics of The Hobbit, The Corrupting Nature of The One Ring, Concepts of Healing in Middle-earth, The Matter of Glorfindel, and Music and Race in Howard Shore’s Score.

TAS is an opportunity for those who love Middle-earth to share their ideas on Tolkien-related subjects in a longer written form. (more…)
