      Dear all,

      The Eagles of Thorondor would like to invite all of you to another fun event, which will also help coursera players complete their week 2 first distinction track peer assignment. This is another fabulous event where we come together, but this time, to enjoy the delights of Bree!

      Eaglestock is our very own kinship social event, where we get together to have some fun. Past Eaglestock events have been connected to festivals, horse racing, deeds, taking the hobbit to Isengard and many many more.

      Date: Friday 8th and Saturday 9th May 2015

      Location: Bree, Breeland

      Meeting point: Prancing Pony

      Participants will gather outside of the Prancing Pony while we wait for other players to arrive. Have a look at the link if you would like more information about one of Bree’s important locations.
