. : A Long Expected Party : .

The only way to have more “down time” is to have a separate event designed for just that reason.  We’ve had small gatherings in the past few years revolving around the release of each Hobbit movie.  And in 2015, a special request for a Frolic in the Shire for Spring, which now has come and gone…and being well received.


But that was only in small groups. Mister Baggins has arranged with the Shaker Village to have a more laid back event focused around more down time.  We will still have our evening meals in the Meadow View Barn (depending on the number of attendees) and after hours in the Dancing Pony, more archery, dancing and/or singing or whatever YOU tell us you want.  Though we won’t be bringing in guest speakers as with the regular ALEPs, but any and all panels will be presented by the very attendees themselves. Though all past guests are always welcome to join in on their own accord.


So, here’s your chance on offering those costuming, crafting, leather work, writing, or just discussions that we’ve not had time to fit into ALEP 1, 2 or 3.  If you just want to kick back and enjoy the Shire and do nothing, then do it.  If you have been wanting to offer a panel on costuming, here’s your chance.  There will be a space on the Panels page for you input.


Accommodations will now be booked through the ALEP web site.  No need to to contact Ann but you will need your registration number in order to book a room. For better security, Mister Baggins will be in touch to gather credit card info that is required by Shaker Village.



The request that we keep getting aside from additional panels or repeated panels is to have more “down time”.
