Yay! That's wonderful news. We should have a TORn moot there one night!

It'll be great to meet greendragon and deej in person Smile

For anyone still considering going to HobbitCon, it looks like there are no more hotel rooms on offer. So anyone booking their tickets now, be prepared to stay somewhere else, Or get just a day ticket (but that will only give you a taste of the thing..). I've attended this wonderful event every year since its inception three years ago, and it's become a highlight of my year. So nice to meet TORn members one has come to know through the website, and actually talk and party with them. Not to mention the so-called star guests, all of whom have always been most kind and amazingly friendly to me. If anyone needs more information about this event, let me know and I'll share whatever knowledge I've gained through the experiencing of the first three HobbitCons.
Less than two and a half months to go now....

TORn at HobbitCon update - March 3, 2016

With less than a month to go until HobbitCon in Bonn, Germany, staffers deej and greendragon are busily getting ready to join their fellow fans there! For the first time, will have an official presence at the con, where we'll be delighted to chat with folks, give some panels, and maybe share some merchandise and giveaways!

At the moment, TORn is scheduled to give two talks at HobbitCon:

Saturday 2nd April 2pm in Saal Maritim

A Party of Special Magnificence - Behind the Scenes of The One Last Party

February 2015 in Hollywood - and fellow fans gathered with some of the cast and crew from Peter Jackson's Middle-earth movies, to celebrate this fandom we all love - one last time - TORn staffers greendragon and deej share tales of fundraising on an epic scale, preparing for this special event, and trying to keep elves, dwarves, hobbits and men - and the occasional dragon - happy! Plus we'll show some footage from the night itself - and maybe some extra video clips of cast who sent along their support.

Sunday 3rd April 12pm in Saal Maritim

There and Back Again - Looking Back on an Extraordinary Journey

Seventeen years ago, a film maker in New Zealand began his work bringing Middle-earth to the screen; and began a mission - quest - thing. In the years which followed, we've travelled far and wide, in cyberspace and in the real world; meeting cast and crew; getting magical glimpses behind the scenes; and most importantly, sharing an epic journey with our fellow fans across the globe. Join staffers from to share reminiscences about the highs and lows of this Unexpected Journey with a Fellowship of Fans.

You can read the full program for HobbitCon here.

The schedule is subject to change, so we'll update you if need be! Meanwhile we hope to meet lots of fans there. Rumour has it this may be the LAST HobbitCon - so let's make it a good one! See you in Germany. Bis bald!
