Hobbit Feast at Starved Rock KUNGLOOSH writes: Our Tolkien fan group got together on Saturday, October 14, 2006 for a day of eating, fun, eating, hiking, and eating. (Hey, wouldn’t be a Hobbit Feast without the food!) The festivities were at Starved Rock State Park in Utica, IL. There was even a tree that looked like a “party tree” from the movie. Those who attended were: me, Bill, Nancy, Rob & friend, James, Susan, Rogan, Alesia, and Sandy. A toast was given in the memory of our greatly missed friend Balin. Our group gets together twice a year at Starved Rock and our next get together will be in June. [More]
