Facebook and Website

  • Need a public face to Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship as current chat room in Facebook is private.
  • We do have an open facebook page… but we need more to take an active role contributing pictures, links, etc.
  • Peter K and Miles will change domain name of Proudfoot website to Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship…
  • This needs further discussion as Miles and Peter do not believe it is necessary… The site however does need further redesigning. The site and URLs are sponsored for free currently.
  • We need more people to take an active role contributing to the website.
  • New business card – Peter D to draft a new business card – Tolkien Fellowship one side, Proudfoot Esq the other side. This is agreed on to be necessary.

  • Tolkien Reading Day – held at a library? Book readings, stories, songs…Possibly include archery cos play with orc and dwarf

School visits and library presentations

  • blue cards are required – Peter K will sponsor anyone wanting to apply
  •  Peter K will draft up a program

Publications — idea of publishing a book with contributions by members… looking for people with publishing and editing skills to make this a reality.

Peter K has OS writers and fans willing to contribute.

An Australian based Tolkien themed publication would be a great way to communicate with Tolkien fans here Down Under.

Displays – Logan Library is set for Fantasy Week – others?

Letter of introduction – Peter D to draft one up for members to send to businesses, interested parties, etc. outlining what we can offer.
