It is time once again to celebrate Fat Hobbit!
The Bounders of the Shire, Addernotch Station, will host the annual Fat Hobbit Celebration ((Mardi Gras)). Fat Hobbit will be held at the Bird and Baby Inn in Michel Delving at 9pm /servertime on Tuesday, February 23, 2021.!
There will be a concert by Green Hills Music Society (GHMS), and a 'Come as You Aren't' Costume Contest to choose this year's King and Queen. The contestant costumes are to be of Purple, Green, and Gold. Those entering the Costume Contest MUST wear the festival colours. Guests may wear these colours in honour of the festivities, but is not required! We look forward to welcoming you!
Please note that the New King and and Queen will be expected to lead The Last Dance, so be sure that you can stay that long.
I would like to thank everyone who helped to make Fat Hobbit a success this year. There were 25-30 folks who came. We even had someone from distant Laurelin!
We were graced by four members of past Royalty. The winners are always a surprise. This year was no exception. Congratulations to you both! The contestants were beautifully costumed and so were many of the non-contestants.
ESPECIALLY, I would like to thank Miss Rothariel for postponing the start of the Musica Banditos Concert until we were done.
Below in random order, there are more specific thank yous.
