    Joy of joys, the summer is here! And summer means time for food and drink!
    This summer, we'll visit the northern vineyards at Northcotton Farm!
    Get ready for this year’s Grand Summer Picnic!

    Date: Sunday June 30th
    Time: 7:30PM UK/BST (2:30PM servertime)
    Location: The vineyards at Northcotton Farm, outside Oatbarton, Laurelin server

    We are pleased to invite all hobbits and good friends to this year’s summer picnic! Activities to look forward to include music, dancing, games, food, drinks and fireworks. And wine, lots of wine. Perhaps yer will be able to start making yer own?
    This year, we'll visit the Nortfarthing, more precisely Northcotton Farm just west of Oatbarton. The farm has some quality vineyards for us to peruse and learn more about northern wine-making traditions. For instruction on how to get there, see below.

    Please bring your own food to share with the others, for the picnic potluck!

    All hobbits are invited, except Lobelia and Lotho. We're still undecided over Ol' Flourdumpling, because he'll end up eating all the food.

    There may be a pie rolling run as well, so bring an extra set of dry clothes...


    This is certainly a hobbit-preferred event, but well-mannered dwarves and good friends from taller persuasions may surely pop around too. Just don’t block the view of the locals during the entertainment.

    To reach the vineyards, follow the map below. Basically, once you go through the entrance (to the farm, not the adventure instance), turn left at the first main crossroad, then keep turning right along the path.

    While the vineyards are safe, there are some level 30 shrews and crows around near the entrance. If you need help to get past them, please contact Lina or Pycella.

    The rain stopped just as I was leaving Appledores with Lobelia's contribution to the picnic.
