Here we are, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, reading with envy about the goings-on elsewhere: the Gathering of the Fellowship in Toronto, the Premier in Wellington, the TORN party, etc. (sigh) For those of us who cannot travel to those far away places, we have been saddened that we could not participate in those magnificent festivities. But no longer.
Ahem, (in my best Bilbo Baggins voice) I have an ANNOUNCEMENT!
Tol Andúnë, the Hawaii Chapter of the Tolkien Society, is proud to sponsor The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Premier Party!
The party will be on December 14th, from 3 PM to 6 PM at the Yum Yum Tree Restaurant in Ward Center, Honolulu Hawaii. There will be a buffet, trivia games, a costume contest, and drawings for various prizes including The One Ring as well as a raffle for a ticket to Trilogy Tuesday at the Ward Theaters. Reservations are required as seating is limited. The cost is $24 for adults and $15 for children under 10 years. Deadline for reservations is November 15th. You can download the reservation form at the website: www.tolandune.net or call 808-593-3855 for more information.
So there you have it Xo! In our small, Hobbit-like way, we will celebrate the ROTK, Hawaiian style! I sent a brief email to Erica about this (who I met in New Zealand while I was on a Red Carpet tour), but I know she is rather busy with the things going on in Wellington nowdays. Would it be possible to post this info on the TORN website? I would be ever so grateful! I know there are many other Ringers here in Hawaii, but don’t have a way to reach them otherwise. (Last I heard, the theater here had sold around 300 tickets to Trilogy Tuesday).
