The darn clocks again - Gazette Issue 3 -  1425.S.R.

Well, dear readers, no prizes for guessing what the subject of this month's editorial will be! It's about clock fiddling, ofcourse. It's that time of year again, where the authorities ask us to put forward our clocks by one hour, so there will be more sunlight in the evenings. Mornings will be dark longer, but you can't have everything. Now, the problem each time is, that hobbits west of the Big Pond choose another day to forward their clocks than their cousins east of the Big Pond. In the West it happens on March 10 and East has us fiddle on March 31. So for three entire weeks, the difference between Michel Delving time ((UK time)), as we use in our announcements, and the clock called server time will be 4 hours and not 5, like it is most of the rest of the year. So take that into account when you come and visit one of the events in that period of time.

Enough of that! There is more ofcourse in the lovely month of March...
