The Eä Tolkien Society will all be at Tolkien Moot IX, broadcasting their monthly meeting from the convention, August 3rd at 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm Pacific time. Be sure to join us and the live audience in discussion of all things Tolkien....
It is now just two weeks until TolkienMoot IX begins on Friday August 2nd (Noon to 10:00 pm), through Saturday August 3rd (9:00 am to 10:00 pm), and Sunday August 4th (9:00 am through 6:00 pm). If you have been thinking about attending, but have been procrastinating, you do not want to wait any longer to RSVP. There are only a few seats left.
Seats are quickly filling up via the RSVP form, and we could use a few extra hands to help with the work. We need at least one more GM and 2 volunteers. We do have a few seats left at the youth tables, but the adult tables are almost full, so if you want to be able to attend the gaming sessions, we either need more Game Masters, or you better hurry and RSVP before the existing seats are completely filled up. More information here.....
It is official the Tolkienmoot IX (2013) convention will take place this August 2nd through the 4th in Spokane Washington, and some events (like guest speakers) are available online.
