Celebration for the 10th anniversary of the Greek Tolkien Society

Dear members and friends,

We are pleased to announce the events planned for celebrating the 10th anniversary of our Society. The Prancing Pony invites all its members and friends to join us in a 5 days program of events full of memories, knowledge, fun, nostalgia for the past and hope for the future.   The program focuses on the persons and things that brought us together and made us what we are and consists of two parts. One in Athens and one at a mountain resort in Achaia (north-west Peloponnesus).

1/ Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th October, 5 to 10 pm, at Pure Bliss (Romvis 24a, Athens). Retrospective exhibition of photographs, videos and memorabilia. A presentation of certain papers that made us known to the community, as well as a showing of the recording from our famous theatrical performance.  Traditional hobbit hospitality with food and sweets. Detailed program with show times to follow. Come and let’s remember all that has brought us close together and led to today. Fee: The price of the coffee or drink you might want to drink.

2/ Friday 5th to Sunday 7th October, at “Achaiko Chorio” mountain resort. A two-day excursion to a secluded mountain resort with many activities, such as games, shows, trekking, archery and of course feasting and many surprises. We have prepared a “package” that includes all basic needs for transportation, accommodation and nutrition. For those who choose to come by coach (which saves us all gasoline and toll expenses plus it’s a lot of fun) the departure will be at noon (12:00) on Friday from somewhere centrally in Athens with a pickup stop in Corinth as well. The return to Athens is estimated for approx. 6pm on Sunday. Those who choose to come by private car should coordinate and share with others. Also they should know that the last 1km is a dirt road and that the price of the “package” remains the same. For the accommodations, special care will be taken as far as families and couples are concerned.
