South African Tolkien fans say hi Can't Post

Hello to all the Ringers!
My name is Jennifer. For my twelfth birthday I received a little book from my aunt. It was called The Hobbit. She said it was a book a bit like The Lord of the Rings. I was afraid – my childhood fear was Gollum, so I put it aside for a month or two. One day, out of sheer curiosity I took it with me to school, and started to read it.
In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.
That one sentence had me hooked. I finished the book in two days. When I came home the second day, I ran around the house to find my mother’s LoTR DVDs, which I finished in one night.
The next morning my aunt visited. I raved about everything Tolkien to her. She grinned, knowing she had created a Tolkien geek. Since then, we’ve baked lembas bread and seed cake, cried buckets of tears during marathons, played out scenes with legos and planned our costumes for the Hobbit.(Not many people have such shiny aunts) I’ve also been to New Zealand – I’ve done everything from swinging a replica of Anduril on Mt. Sunday to correcting a guide at Hobbiton’s set.
In South Africa there aren’t many Tolkien fans. I think that if there are any, we’re the luckiest fans on earth since The Professor was born here. We’re just looking for some way to contact other fans in South Africa – I’ve already asked at my Comic Book store – it seems that Ringers are non-existent here. They don’t know any except us.
And thanks for a wonderfully informative site – I love TORN and have been using it since the beginning. I’m only fifteen and still a bit of a newbie. So if I say something really stupid or make a mistake on the message boards, please correct me.
Farewell, wherever you fare till your eyries receive you at the journey's end!
