Raddy is curious: why no Tolkien "fan clubs" as such? Can't Post

Something got me thinking today (Yes, that might have been risky, I admit). Whilst checking out whether it would be worth joining a medieval reenactment society it occurred to me that there aren't many Tolkien "fan clubs" as such-by that I mean clubs where fans actually meet up to make friends and to discuss Tolkien's work.

So that got me thinking: what if every country or at least most countries had a national or regional Tolkien fan club, whereby people could meet at their own convenience to participate in meetings/events-such as:

Face-to-face critical discussions/meetings based around friendly debate of Tolkien's work

Tolkien-themed parties and cosplays

Re-enactments of famous scenes/battles

Lessons in Tolkien's languages from field experts

Marathons of the films in the company of fellow fans, perhaps on a hired big screen/projector screen?

Get-to-know sessions for lonely Tolkien fans who want more people to share their interest with (e.g. me!)

Laugh

What do you think? Am I going mad? Would it be a brilliant idea in only a perfect world?

I'm just curious to know how far the levels of people's fandom would extend to. Mine would certainly reach this far.
