News for Calgary Ringers from Galadriel: “I just thought I’d let you know that a group of Calgary Ringers are putting together a potluck picnic for the Baggins’ Birthday on Sunday, Sept. 22nd at Edworthy Park. Tentative events include Tolkien/fantasy-themed improv games, Middle-earth trivia contests, and a demonstration by a local medieval recreation group. All Hobbits, Elves, Dwarves, Humans, Wizards (and even Orcs) are invited. The details are available here”
