Tolkien Moot 2010 August 13-15 Spokane, WA, USA.

Postby tolkienmoot » Wed Aug 04, 2010 12:57 am

Greetings,

This is just a quick reminder that Tolkien Moot 2010 is now only 10 days away in Spokane, Washington, USA.

http://www.tolkienmoot.org

The event is still free and open to the public, but we do need people to RSVP to help us plan seating in advance.

Tolkien Moot now has a more expanded venue than previous years (this is the sixth year), so you should really consider checking it out this year.

The convention begins Friday August 13th at 5:00 pm, and ends on Sunday evening August 15th.

Even if you can't attend for whole days, at least consider attempting to drop by for the unique special events this year.

In addition to "Raw Hobbit", "Tolkien Youth Panel", Middle-earth Talk Radio live broadcast, multiple RPG tables, live streaming of audio and video with interactive real time chat from participants around the world, Tolkien computer games, and guest speaker Michael Martinez, we have the very special vocalist Elvish singer Rehtaeh performing each day.

Her performance schedule is as follows:
Friday August 13th 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
Saturday August 14th beginning at 7:00 pm.
Sunday August 15th beginning at 2:00 pm.

You can learn more about Rehtaeh at her website http://www.rehtaehmusic.com or listen to her interview on Middle-earth Talk Radio http://www.middle-earthradio.com/talk-show/. She will also be presenting a "world premiere" of a new song from her upcoming fourth album, exclusively at Tolkien Moot.

See the schedule on the website for all the events, and please RSVP for the times you believe you can attend.

I know not. :-)
It is still a fairly small gathering (in person, though growing significantly in online attendees). This is our sixth year, though previously named MerpCon, last year we began the transition to Tolkien Moot. We discuss it regularly on the show Middle-earth Talk Radio, and in the magazine Other Minds magazine. It is possibly because it has been more role playing gaming (Tolkien specificially) centric in the past, but the venue has expanded each year (though always focused on Tolkien). Please do check it out online when you get the chance.
Namarie!

Concerning Raw Hobbit

Postby Michael Martinez » Sat Aug 07, 2010 10:00 am

We had a great response to "Raw Hobbit" last year. It's a 1-on-1 interview format done in the same style as William Shatner's "Raw Nerve".

I'll be interviewing Heather for "Raw Hobbit".

You'll not only be able to watch the interview live on the Web, but we'll also have a chat room active so people can comment and pass on questions.

Tolkien Moot is a very net-intensive experience during the panels.

Well, sorry you didn't know about it before hand. However, the next Tolkien Moot (2011) is taking place June 24-26, also in the Spokane, WA area.
We have tentatively picked the Service Station, but have not yet 100% firmed that up yet.
We will keep updating on the website http://www.tolkienmoot.org
Once we have an RSVP form updated for 2011, please RSVP, because the seating fills up quickly.
Namarie!
