A group for fans of the many, many works of legendary fantasy author JRR Tolkien.
Whether you've read the Silmarillion twenty times along with all twelve volumes of the Histories of Middle Earth or just seen the movies once or twice, everyone is welcome!
I started this group as I couldn't find a similar one in NZ, and since we're in the beautiful country that doubles as Middle Earth itself, it's a prime opportunity to meet other geeks and geek out.
I haven't really done anything like this before, but I'll do regular meetups in and around Auckland. If there's enough interest, we can also get out and about to explore some beautiful landscapes, take trips to Hobbiton, do some archery/swordfighting classes and generally unleash our inner elf, dwarf and hobbit. For the keen horse riders among you, I'll also try and look into horseback tours of LOTR filming locations. Ideas for other things to do are always welcome!
