Asphodel the PR Hobbit writes: The Ohio Ring Council (ORC) is proud to announce that we will be celebrating the birthdays of our favorite hobbits, Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, at our version of the Long Expected Party in Canal Winchester, Ohio on Saturday, September 18th. Details and directions are available at

“The Long-Expected Party” will be the first annual party in central Ohio hosted by the Ohio Ring Council in celebration of all things Tolkien, Middle Earth and Lord of the Rings. There will be feasting, games and activities, live celtic music, dancing, and general partying and fun to be had. The spirit of Middle Earth and Hobbiton will be brought to life with decorations galore, much of which was hand-made by ORC members. All in all, this will indeed be ‘a night to remember’, and we hope all fellow fans attending the party will agree!
