Dwarfs Refuse to Leave Mid-MO!
Several weekends ago the Mid-MO LB Society hosted a dwarven send off party for a fine series of LBs based on Tolkien’s The Hobbit, which are bound for Grand Junction Colorado. A feast was held as is the common practice within the society and the dwarfs were stamped-silly as each person who entered the contest was permitted to stamp the little fellows. What contest you say? Well dear friend, I had thrown out the contest shortly before the send off party. The task was to create a fabulous FF prize for the series. All the entries would be bundled up with the dwarfs and sent to CO. Once there they will be placed in a box at the end of the series and folks get to choose one. BUT, they’ll all be wrapped and they’ll not know what they’ll get until they open it. AH! The temptation they’ll suffer with not opening all the wonderful little packages!
In all we ended the day with six entries. Fox-Fyr was our grand prize winner for her hand crafted set of rune stones. What did she win? Not telling…at least not yet. Everyone who entered did get one of these (see pic below). Perhaps you’re thinking, ‘Lnd-Crzr, I want one!’ Well friend, you’re in luck. You see, the dwarfs have refused to leave just yet and will most likely winter here in my own Hobbit hole. So while the contest is over, it’s not too late for you to send along your own FF bonus and receive your own gift of thanks. Rules are simple. It must be related to The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien and it must fit inside an ammo box. Handmade is preferred, though not a must. Please ensure that your trail name and contact information is somewhere on the item.
In a nutshell: The Dwarfs refused to leave.
Will winter here in Mid-MO.
Fox-Fyr won the contest.
Want a fancy Hobbit quote like the one above? Send me a FF prize which must be realetd the The Hobbit, preferably hand crafted.
Thanks to everyone who came and entered the contest. All entries are greatly appreciated!
