Tolkien Moot 2012
Tolkien Moot 2012 is just around the corner.

It will take place all day Friday, July 13th, all day Saturday July 14th, and all day Sunday July 15th in North Spokane. The event this year is only open by invitation. You should have received an invitation email sent May 11th, 2012. If you did not receive this invitation email, check your spam folder and if not found there, then please contact us to add you to the invitation/RSVP list.
The event is taking place in North Spokane (near Whitworth University). The specific address will be sent to you by emai when you have been confirmed as an attendee.

There will be a "pot luck" approach to providing food, drinks, and snacks. This year's smaller, more exclusive event will be open to only about 20 people this year, so do not procrastinate in confirming your registration this year.
The registration form for the larger Tolkien Moot 2013 at Bozarth Mansion will be made available in the weeks leading up to the 2012 event, watch for the announcement. 2012 will not have any fees, but 2013 will have a pre-registration fee as well as attendance/event fee(s) for those who are not helping as volunteers, game masters, or special guests.
