Friday the 13th? 
Eek! It is Scream Dragon Friday! 

 

Date: Friday October 13 *shivers* 
Time: 7:30PM ((UK / 2:30PM servertime)) 
Location: Green Dragon Inn, Bywater 

The days are getting darker and darker, as the shadow of autumn spreads in the Shire. This is the season for scary stories; gammer’s tales that seem more real than ever…. Even the most reasonable of us might get superstitious when the wind howls in the windows, the floor panels creak on their own and biscuits jars seem to empty themselves when you are not looking…

We hobbits are arranging a special Friday evening for you: The Scream Dragon Friday, happening on Friday the 13th October! Time to bring your most horrifying stories, poems, music pieces (and scariest horns). Share the goosebumps! No need to sign up, just turn up during the evening and whisper to Miss Pycella who is hosting the event.

See yer at the Green Dragon Night of Horrors! Let’s make it a horrible… I mean horrifying experience for everyone!


((  OOC:

Usual Green Dragon Friday guidelines apply, so this is a roleplaying event for hobbits, with travelling (and scary) dwarves welcome.))

Where to go?? That's up to you!

By Peppy Bristlebrush, editor   

A percipient reader wrote to the Gazette saying: What gives, Master Peppy? You tell us about two events that occur on the same day! What do you expect us to do now? 

Well, dear percipient reader, that is entirely up to you! You have the choice. We just try to make you aware of what the possibilities are. It would not be good, if our editors would decide to pick just one event and only write about that one.

So it sometimes happens that two events are planned on the same day. To be honest, the Hobbit Calendar is rather full and with the regular weekly and bi-weekly events that we already have, it can be hard to find a date that is not "taken" yet.

We have at times tried to bring the organisers of coinciding events together to see if they could find a way out and sometimes they can. But  this is not always possible.

But the bottom line is, that it is not up to the Gazette to make a choice, it is up to you, our readers. And sometimes the choice is a hard one when both events are equally attractive. We will keep you informed about them and then you will decide where to go.



Have a good time, no matter what your decision will be!

Awesome Azure Autumn

Hiya! 

The OAKS be back!    The Oldfurlong Amazin Koncert Series has returned!!  

The OAKS came back last Saturday, September 30th with The Chapel of Musical Friendship in a tree-mendous concert.  

I must say that this was truly an amazing group of musicians with absolutely brilliantly beautiful music.  Not only are they fabulous musicians in their individual bands, but they be friends who luvs ta play music t'gether.
Many in the band contributed arrangements to the overall performance which was a group effort among these musical friends and I no folks could feel that sense of friendship in their outstanding music. 
I was sincerely honoured to be able to add my flutin' ta this awesome band and feel very fortunate to consider these lovely folks my friends.   *smiles and sends a warm hug ta them all*


A while back, my gammer told me "Old friends are like gold and new friends are like silver."
So cause I always did like shiny things, I keep lookin fer new friends...

Well, recently, I was over on the back of that great BIG eagle Landroval...
I remember it was on a Sunday, right around the time I usually get hungry, and I was going ta the Pony fer a snack.
Turns out I never did go inta the Pony cause on the stage out front I herd a band playin' some marvelous music!

I went over and listened fer a while....
then I danced up close ta the stage and asked,  "What's the name of this band?"

One stumbled toward the front of the stage and said, "We're Gandalf's Toenails"
I kinda backed away from him....

and then a pretty elf lady said,  "Oh no no, we're The Crew in Blue"

One very purty lady smiled and said, "We're the band that never gets paid"

Then a tall elf with a mask so I could only see his twinklin eyes said something like they "Ain't dune" but I couldn't understand cause his words be muffled by the mask.

There was a hobbit lass in front...I tried to talk to her but she couldn't hear me over her drummin and her belly rumblin...I think it was time for her snack two    *grins*

Actually, I couldn't hear much of what was said over their music...which was AWESOME...and the sound of all them folks in the audience dancin' and cheerin'...
So I decided, lookin at them all dressed in dark blue like the azure summer sky in the evenin'...and the pleasure the entire audience was havin' listenin' and dancin' to their music... that I'd just call them...

The Azure Pleasures

It was a bit tough talkin them inta comin ta the OAKS on account of they left as soon as they finished playin...and I had ta chase them down the alley by the Pony ta talk to them...but I asked if they'd come to the OAKS cause I knew you folks would love them... and they agreed!!

They said they'd be willin to come in October...which made sense since half of them already had their masks on.

So do yerselves a favor and join us in Oldfurlong on Saturday, October 14th when we'll have fun partyin while we listen to the Azure Pleasures...and bring along yer gammer..she needs ta get out more.

No worries cause ya don't have to wear something azure (or dark blue) .....

Come dance...drink...smoke....and party wit us in Oldfurlong...on Saturday October 14th at eight bells  when ya'll get the the very real pleasure of listenin ta

The Azure Pleasures

Grand Order of the Lost Mathom, 10th anniversary party

posted Oct 1, 2017, 5:27 AM by Peppy Bristlebrush

By Lina Willowwood 

10 years! We've been around for 10 years!  
Oh dear... I suppose this means we have to celebrate? 
Yer right, we will! And we hope to see yer there! 

The hobbits of The Grand Order of the Lost Mathom have great delight in inviting our friends and acquaintances to a party of special magnificence on occasion of our tenth anniversary!  



Date: Saturday October 21
Time: 7:30PM ((UK time, 2:30PM servertime))
Location: 4 Brookbank Street, Songburrow, Shire Homesteads.

A decade and then some

Our tenth anniversary! Or rather, our tenth and 1/26th anniversary, since our founding date really is on October 9th. But still - the 21th is a grand day to celebrate!

So, there will be a grand party including speeches, drinks, food, fireworks and entertainment. The kitchens in Songburrow are gearing up already, and there is sure to be a few unexpected surprises as well. Will Strollers or Badgers show up? Will there be brandy? Dancing bears? Grumpy gaffers? A new play? Gifts for the guests? Perhaps! Just don't be surprised should you find some free-roaming oinkers in the village.

Welcome to good friends, neighbours and acquaintances! We hope to see you in Songburrow!


((  OOC:

We would be delighted to extend our hospitality to the hobbits of the Shire, as well as to good friends among the dwarves and the big folk.

The event will be held IC within a RP atmosphere ((so no OOC talk, even in brackets)). Weapons and armour should not be worn within the bounds of Songburrow; please dress for a social gathering or in traveling garb. Please leave your pets at home.  ))

Welcome friends!

Live at Longo's! The Evendim Hillbillies in concert.

posted Sep 28, 2017, 8:58 AM by Peppy Bristlebrush   [ updated Sep 28, 2017, 12:05 PM ]

By Janco Bloatfoot 

Hiya, dear readers,  

I bring you some fine news from Oatbarton: The Evendim Hillbillies, a local band, will be playing a concert in the Shire. No need this time to travel up north, although the villagers will always welcome you there... with chores that they are too lazy to perform themselves. Especially those famers up in Northcotton are infamous for that. More in particular that pipeweedfarmer, Miss Blossom Gamgee. She's already standing next to barrels of pipeweed, but no, she needs YOU to sort them and sample them. I'm not marrying her, I can tell you that!  

So we looked for a location in the Shire this time, one that still has all the atmosphere of Oatbarton itself.. We talked to a nice and industrious pipeweedfarmer, Master Longo Burrow. He gave us permission to play at his farm. Let me give you the details before I ramble on a bit more.

What:    The Evendim Hillbillies, live at Longo's
Where:   Longo Burrow's farm in Tuckburough
When:    October 7th, starting 19:30 ((UK time, 2:30 servertime))

Now who exactly are the Evendim Hillbillies, some of you may ask?


We (I can say "we" as I am part of that merry gang) are musicians who originate from Oatbarton in the North Farthing. Some of us were even born there. As farm life can be very busy, (currently we are in the middle of harvesting) the Evendim Hillbillies do not perform very often. But we do aim for a Spring and a Fall concert, each year. So attending an Evendim Hillbillies concert is something special!

Lately it has become even more special, as famous singer/performer Emylou Haggins often joins our ranks and brings the audience some of her famous and succesful songs. Let me introduce her and the other Hillbillies now:

Pete Proudfoot, better known as Onionfarmer Pete is our bandleader and lute player. Together he and I founded the Evendim Hillbillies some years ago, as a duo for starters. We also founded "the Farmer's Guild". Unlike woodworkers and tailors, cooks and so on, us farmers did not have their own guild yet, so it was about time too!

I, Janco Bloatfoot, met with Pete in Michel Delving one day and we talked about music. We did not talk long as he tuned his lute and I took out my clarinet and we started to play those fine tunes that we learned back in Oatbarton. We started to perform together and it seemed that the Shire folk really liked our music. We thought about expanding and forming a band..

Potty Nutbutter was one of the hobbits who agreed on playing with us. He takes care of the low notes, played expertly on his theorbo. It took some effort to persuade Sir Potty to change clothes for performing with the Evendim Hillbillies, but in the end he agreed. He now leaves his hat tip at home.

Miss Lully Locket was recruited as our horn player and what a talent she is on that instrument! She plays even the most difficult melodies when volunteered to do so.

We also needed a drummer and we found one in Miss Annera Happyheart, a woodworker from Bindbole Woods, later Combe.
She often is accompagnied by her twin sister Linsina who sometimes stands in when a Hillbilly needs a break. A multitalented lass, she is.

I already mentioned her, our famous guest-billy Miss Emylou Haggins, born as Emily Haggins. She too originates from Oatbarton, but left that town to succesfully seek fame and fortune in Bree. We made a song about her and when she learned about that, she came to us, first to scold us about it, but as we played it for her, she changed her mind and agreed to appear with us at our next concert. It was a huge success and each time we do an all-nighter (a big concert), we ask her and when she can find the time in her own busy schedule, she performs with us.

Reluctantly, I'll tell you about another guest-billy.. Reluctantly, as Miss Emylou has stated it must be  a one time affair and should not encourage her other fans to think they can ask and do the same! We had a request from what must be her number one fan, Miss Acorne Oakley: could she sing a duet with her idol, Miss Emylou Haggins? So we invited her to a rehearsal and what a lovely voice she has! She was also very dexterous on the cowbell! Miss Acorne is well known in the Shire, almost a celebrity in her own right, as she organises the monthly OAKS concert series. And ofcourse the Evendim Hillbillies have also played in Oldfurlong due to her. So one good deed deserves another and Miss Acorne has earned herself to sing a duet with Miss Emylou Haggins.

Onionfarmer Pete negotiating with Longo Burrow

If all that is not making you think "I want to be there too!", nothing I could further write would. So I'll leave it at this and hope to see you all at Longo Burrow's farm on October 7th for an evening with the Evendim Hillbillies and their Oatbarton style music!

((OOC
  
This concert is open to visit by all good and well behaving people.

Oatbarton style music comprises of country, cajun, southern rock and similar. Some of the music is based on newly made or heavily adapted midi files. You won't hear them anywhere else.

Roleplaying is very much encouraged, so please no OOC remarks in /say.

We ask the tall folk to take a place behind the not so tall hobbits and dwarves, so as not to block their view ))

The Traveling Bilberries will be travelling home again!

What:    The Traveling Bilberries in concert  
Where:   The Methel Stage, Bywater  
When:    November 4, 19:30 ((UK time, 15:30 servertime ))  
 
Those hobbits that like to go out visiting across our Shire know that I'm often out and about the Shire walking around talking to my neighbours.   I'm no gossip understand.   I just like to know who is doing what with whom and where it's happening.   Then of course I like to make sure my neighbours know also.   But I would never gossip about anybody!   

Well ..I thought you would like to know what I heard..that is why I'm writing this to inform all of you what I overheard the other day in one of our local inns.    Several hobbits were talking about an all-hobbit band that used to play in our Shire but true to their name went off traveling outside the bounds...
I believe their name is the Traveling Bilberries.

Rumours floating about the Green Dragon seem to imply that those rascals will be coming back to play a full 90-minute concert here on our own Methel Stage on Saturday November 4th.

One of those charming gaffers that I have had my eye on for awhile said that it's going to be a merry musical time with much frolicking and dancing.   I think I might go see if he might want to dance with me.   Although that frolicking seems to be a lot more effort than when I was younger...
I say that a lass knows when she is getting older cause work is a lot less fun and fun is a lot more work.

I wonder if those Traveling Bilberries found golden treasures when they were off adventuring out of our bounds.....hhmmmm
I have heard it said that gold is not the key to happiness...but I think if you have enough of it , you could have a key made!

The real treasure I thinks is finding a nice lad who is willing to rub your feet and keep you warm during the cold winter nights.   Of course you couldn't tell by me.   My love life is like a piece of barrow-brie cheese; most of it’s missing, and what’s there stinks.

Perhaps this concert may be just the opportunity to find a nice lad.

Anyhow it will be the place to hear some excellent music, see some old friends, and be seen in your finery...only with some the finery is not too fine.   I just hope the audience will come dressed properly and that none of those muscular dwarf lads lose their shirt on their way there!


well lads you have plenty of time, so find a nice shirt and you'll be sure to leave the lasses with a better impression.

Only thing worse than a dwarf lad with no shirt is a hobbit lad with SHOES in the Shire!

Back to the upcoming event, I have heard mighty good things about this band so I think I may venture over and there does seem to be a lot of time left to get a good seat for this concert ...for those of us that like to relax and enjoy our musical times.   
Of course I will still be available for dancing!

So I'll meet you there at the Methel Stage on Saturday November 4th at seven and a half bells
( that's 19:30 UK time for the tall ones ) when the Traveling Bilberries will be coming back to the Shire for a grand concert!

Don't be late..I'm not saving a seat for you!

Baggins Dragon Birthday Friday, Friday 22 September

posted Sep 18, 2017, 5:52 AM by Peppy Bristlebrush

By Lina Willowwood      

It is September 22nd! The birthday of some fine, albeit strange hobbits of the Baggins variety!  
Cheers for mad Ol' Bilbo! Cheers for his nephew Frodo!   
Let's celebrate their day with an ale at the inn!   



Date: Friday September 22
Time: 7:30PM ((UK, 2:30PM servertime))
Location: Green Dragon inn, Bywater, The Shire.

Bilbo Baggins hasn't been seen in the Shire for near on 20 years now. More recently, his nephew Frodo sold Bag End and moved to Buckland. Which left Lobelia for us, and that's hardly somet to celebrate...

Still, do yer remember the parties held at Bag End? The food, the drink, the pressies, the fizzers? Sounds like a day to celebrate, it does. Which we will do!

Hence, we welcome yer to bring Baggins-related entertainment: Songs, poems, stories or riddles. We'll start the celebrations at the Green Dragon (since it is Green Dragon Friday), but depending on how the night goes on, we might head over to the Party Tree for a last Baggins toast this night.

Welcome hobbits!

(( OOC:

This is Green Dragon Friday, the weekly hobbit RP event, but with a Baggins theme.

While travelling dwarves are always welcome at the inn, for lore reasons we ask that the Big Folk do not attend. Please roll up a hobbit instead to attend, it is grand fun. ))

A fishing match at Bamfurlong with surprising results!

posted Sep 14, 2017, 10:36 AM by Peppy Bristlebrush   [ updated Sep 15, 2017, 5:44 AM ]

By Ponso Pondhopper   

As part of the annual Harnkegger Games, organised by Durin’s Folk and The Blue Mountains Regiment, we were proud to host a fishing match in the Marish. And what a match it turned out to be!   


In total, there were thirty-nine contestants. That, in itself wasn’t surprising as folk come from all over to take part in the Harnkegger Games. A total of eleventy-hundred and two fish were caught, also not surprising, given the number of contestants. What was surprising was the results!   


The weedy prize was shared between Skaldfingur and Myntee, both of whom caught six bundles of weed.


The third prize, with a catch of seven trophy fish, five edible fish, eighteen other fish, three bundles of weeds and an old butterknife, went to Drucilla. (64 points)
Second prize, with a catch of four trophy fish, eight edible fish, twenty-one other fish and only one piece of junk (a rusty breadknife by the look of it), went to Rhongar, a dwarf. (64 points)


But the first prize, with an outstanding catch of nine trophy fish, five edible fish, twenty-two other fish, one bundle of weeds and a rusty fruit-knife, a total of eighty points went to our dear friend Mister Fidgit! This not only beat the previous Harnkegger record of 62 points, set by Miss Seggra two years ago, but is also a new record for Shire Angling Club matches.


To catch thirty-eight fish in fifteen minutes is an achievement in itself, but to catch fish of such quality is outstanding. Mister Fidgit has set a record that will be very hard to beat in the future. He has shown that, when it comes to fishing, we hobbits are hard to beat.


Furthermore, of the eleventy-hundred-plus fish we saw catches of eighty-seven catfish and a hundred and fifty-six dace, which provided a grand first breakfast for the hungry competitors who have been fishing through the night.



The Return of OAKS!!

By Acorne Oakley  

Hiya ta all the fun-lovin folks of Middle Earth!  

Many of ya folks have asked me when will the OAKS be comin back?

( turns out that may have been a mistake cause it kind of flared up a bit and we had ta replace the whole tree! )

So...I got in touch wit them fine workers that was fixin the roof of the Floatin Log and they agreed ta come ta Oldfurlong as soon as they be finished at the Floatin Log.  They worked as quickly as they could while still doing a good job..that's important to them.
but time drug on fer a bit and still all the tables and benches of Oldfurlong was broken ...and the old oak stood there charred on one side.

Then one mornin here they came ....they told me it be gettin warmer and roofin repair be hot work....so they thot they mite fix up Oldfurlong.    I was mighty pleased ...even after I saw dear Tiny slippin them folks sum beers ta speed up the repairs.   Thanks Tiny!
Papa even brought in sum woodworkers he found at the Hobbit Market in Michel Delving...
            *smiles thinkin of her helpful Papa*

So Oldfurlong be ready fer anuther OAKS....
