I've heard some very sad news - Issue 3 - 1426 S.R.

Aye, the sad news is, that a fine hobbit, a good friend and a talented musician has passed away. It is dear Master Pipes, also known as Geoffroi. Our thoughts are with his family, his musical friends and anyone who knew him. He will be dearly missed! There will be a tribute to him on March 15 in Bree (See the announcement below. Read More... if you don't see it).

Ack, it's that time of year again where everyone can get confused over what time an event will start. I'm talking about the clock fiddling, ofcourse! Clocks will be set forward one hour to have more daylight, but not every clock at the same time! From Sunday 8 of March until and incuding Saturday March 28, the difference between the Michel Delving clock ((UK time)) and the clock called Servertime ((Boston time, or Eastern Standard Time)) will be four hours and not the usual five. Please bear that in mind this month!

What can be expected this month? There is PIE-day ofcourse on March 14 and there is Bullroarer Took Day on March 17. The Spring Festival will start on March 19 and will last almost an entire month. We close the month with the March OAKS on the 28th. And ofcourse there are the usual Hobbit Markets, the Nights of the Muses and the Green Dragon Fridays!

We hope to meet you on one or more of these occasions!
