***The Tolkienia Times: 60th Year of Fellowship Celebration Edition!*** Can't Post



The Editors of the Tolkienia Times are pleased to announce the commencement of the 60th Anniversary celebrations of The Fellowship of the Ring!

A Much Expected Party



Citizens of Tolkienia arose this morning in great anticipation of the theonering.net’s celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the publication of The Fellowship of the Ring. Although the schedule of events on the one ring.net board celebrations are posted on that site, they are also listed here at the bottom of this article.

Unlike the last joint celebration which had to be moved to the Message Boards due to an extreme lack of weather, the head of the Tolkienia Weather Service, DanielLB, reports that a strong high pressure zone will ensure blue skies and light winds, perfect for the outdoor events planned.

As before, the Tolkienia underground will offer free service today between the Message Boards and the Bywater Train Station. Also, reduced fees for local Tolkienian tours will be offered between the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 6:00 P.M. Contact the Bywater Station or the Mayor’s office for more information.

The celebrations commence at exactly 9:00 A.M. when the Horn Call of Buckland will be played on the original instrument used by Meriadoc Brandybuck.

Long preserved in a sealed, climate-controlled case in a hidden vault under the Town Hall, the horn was recently put on display under glass and with extraordinary security measures (rumors place an enormous hound, and several stocky, luxuriantly bearded and armored personnel in the vicinity) in the E. I. Pheriannath Memorial Library lobby.

The horn will be played by Message Board resident Meneldor who has ancestral experience with horns and other wind instruments.

After a short speech by the mayor, the Celeborn High School marching band will lead a parade of all willing and able townsfolk around the town square and down Gladden Fields Drive to Inchbonnie Road, then onto Gandalf’s Ride, ending with a ceremony at the library where the horn will be reinstalled in it’s display case.

The many festivities taking place around the country, both public and private, include hayrides, craft festivals in several locations, and a small carnival which is open to the public for the cost of four farthings per person located at the north end of Monument Square Green.

The carnival boasts the largest dragon-themed roller coaster within 200 miles of this venue, and a 60 foot tall inflatable cavern and bouncing area called “The Mouth of Moria.” A large plastic octopus floats in the nearby pond, for swimmers to rest, or to use as a diving board.

A children’s area on the northwest end offers hair painting and ear stenciling, as well as game booths featuring contests such as Legolas Limbo, a Nazgul Piñata, and Pin the Whisker on the Warg.

For those interested in leisurely elegance and fine dining, barge tours are available leaving from the Eyott Club every half-hour, beginning at 10:00 A.M. These tours along both the South and West Baranduin are scheduled with stops at various parties being held in private homes along the river.

To close the day’s festivities, the mayor will preside at the launching of the new flagship coast guard vessel, “Melloncirya” at 7:00 P.M. at the Eyott Club Marina.



The “Melloncirya,” ready for launch.

The name means, literally “friend-ship,” the play on words reflecting the desire of the Mayor and the Town Council to present a welcoming presence on our borders and surrounding waterways.

Meneldor will again be the featured guest, as he will formally christen the new vessel at precisely eleventy-one o’clock, P.M., Shire Mean Time.

The ceremony will be followed by fireworks over the South Baranduin, as all citizens pause to reflect on the joy and pleasure of the launching of their new vessel, and the launching, long ago, of one of the great works of western literature, and the Reason for Being of the town, nation, and website we call home.

Below is the message board schedule for the convenience of those citizens making the 15 minute underground trip, which disembarks on the Boards at "Main."

Passengers wishing to visit the other official party venue, the Movie Discussion: The Lord of the Rings board, will need to proceed on foot, following the clearly marked navigation buttons as no shuttle is available.
