Announcement: Historical fieldtrip to Brandywine river

posted Oct 18, 2010, 10:24 AM by Yola Plumblossom
Where does the Brandywine river come from, and where does it end its long journey? Did the river really freeze once, so white wolves could attack the Shire? Whatever possesses the Bucklanders to go swimming or mucking about in boats? Answers to these questions, and more, may be given during our third historical field trip in hobbit lands. There are no guarantees, though!

We will meet up in the Golden Perch inn in Stock for a quick ale before heading off up-river. Our target is Girdley Island, famed recreation spot for Bucklanders, with promises of good fishing and little in the way of furry wildlife with sharp teeth. Once there, our local historians will present stories, tales, poetry and songs related to hobbit lore. Food WILL be served.

Want to know more about hobbit history? Then come along! We will meet at the Golden Perch inn in Stock for a mug of ale at around 18:30 ((servertime)), then we'll set course for Girdley Island and a day of hobbit history, tales and the odd poem. And, of course, roast sausages over the campfire!

I hope you will join us. Bring sturdy clothes and your fishing rod! And, of course, your favourite hobbit friends!

Date: Sunday October 24th, 2010
