I had the pleasure of showing Larry Curtis (TheOneRing's MrCere) around Wellington's LOTR locations last week. We had planned to meet in the evening but unfortunately he was unavoidably detained elsewhere and couldn't make it.
He did manage to write up the tour on TheOneRing.net's blog, and it looks like he had a good time!
So, instead of meeting with MrCere and Tehanu (also from TORn), I met up with Kristi, who has attended earlier Welly-moots, and we
discussed setting up as an official Tolkien Society spinoff - a "Smial". The
official plans are now underway, so watch this space!
Meanwhile though - in a week and a half there will be another chance for Wellington's Hobbit friends to get together, again at the Embassy Theatre.
Peter Kenny, from the Australian Tolkien Society will be in Wellington, and he's keen to get together with like-minded people here. Also with him will be Astrid from the Austrian Tolkien Society, so a good get together is promised!
The details of the meeting again - it will take place at the Embassy Theatre on Thursday the 22nd of December at 7:30pm.
Hopefully we'll see you there!
