The Mereth Aderthad is indeed happening! The general chaos of my life lately made it so that the website was severely delayed: mostly built but needing just enough essentials to make it impossible to finish in the time I had for it. But ... it's done! Finally!

http://mereth-aderthad.com/

Absolutely anyone can register for a membership. There's also an email newsletter to sign up for to get updates. There's also an LJ comm: [livejournal.com profile] mereth_aderthad. More social media will follow, but these are the ways to get updates for now.

If you're attending, there's an additional RSVP form I'm asking people to fill out. One, because it will help us to know how many people will actually be here! :) Also because there are sections of the site for doing things like planning carpools that don't need to be open to all and sundry, and sending in an RSVP gets you access to those.

In case you're not sure what the heck I'm talking about: Mereth Aderthad is a gathering of Tolkien fans in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. It's going to be part fan convention, part holiday. We'll have a kickoff event that first Saturday (more information on this is forthcoming). The week after will be more informal and we're really open to doing whatever our attendees want to do. (Hike mountains? Sit around a bonfire and drink VT beer? Hang out on the beach and watch the lake?) All Tolkien fans are welcome. My only stipulation is that they should be open-minded about fanworks.

Hooray, website! I'm still hoping to make it, though not sure how I would be getting there. We'll see!

Oh, cool. My original plan was train to Hartford, then rent a car and drive up to Coventry. I have to do another price-check and see how that's looking.

My amendment to that stipulation is "don't attack fanworks or creators thereof even of characters, relationships, and plots you hate" but that's because I'm a bit of a pessimist about fandom behavior right now. :(

If only, like Elwing, I could take wings and fly. How I would love to come along and meet you all. Perhaps one year, if funds permit.

Huge kudos and well-done for setting to this task. I know how organising even the smallest get-together takes time and patience. I'm bookmarking the website whatever.

I'm sure it will be lovely friendly gathering. Uniting (if not re-uniting) many Elven spirits, with fun and feasting. Perhaps on a smaller scale than those of the High King, but surely no less jolly.

PS. Don't forget the harp. Does anyone have a harp? :D XX

I wish you all oodles of fun! Even if I had the means, the summer holiday of my kids kick off on the 24th of July...

Dawn, I have a suggestion - would you consider opening the forums to people who aren't sure if they're going yet? I would like to ask about shared rides from Maryland, but I'm not positive I'm going yet so I don't want to RSVP. But I would be more likely to go if there were other people going from here! Catch-22. :-)
