What will the New Year bring?  - Gazette Issue 1 & 2 -1424 S.R.

And no, we did not get to see the "Ode to old Bloodtusk" in Winterhome. But for some reason, the gates of Winterhome will be reopened from February 22 till March 5! Could it be that the actors of G.L.O.B.E. have finally learned their parts? You'll have to go and see.

Another reprise of sorts is the Historical Field Trip that will be held in Tuckburough. Hobbits did do a field trip there earlier, but that was quite a few years ago. Time to see if the information gained then, has settled in our minds and if not, to refresh it.

Next, I do apologise for being so late with my new editorial. Due to all sorts of distractions of a personal nature, I did not get around to writing it.  So I do wish you a belated Happy New Year on behalf of the entire staff of the Bramblebury Gazette. May it be a good one for all of you!

You know that I always like to include a teaser at some point to make you peek at the full story on another page *smiles*. Well, this time I can announce you that the staff of the Bramblebury Gazette will be enhanced by no other than ...
