re: Eleventh Annual Month o' the Chicken

Not to worry.  There were only 2 chickens  who showed up for Rivendell.  Several from  The Knights of the White Lady Kinship, Miss Glofinwing from Coursserim, and a couple of others all showed up to tender the chicks. 

At the end of the month, Li'l Meadowlark will be delivering chickens to Rivendell , and the Free Range/Crosser of Roads Run, led by Uncle Rooster.   They can help then.   

Remember to keep an eye on the schedule, so you know in advance what is coming up and when.

OH! I just discovered that I had the wrong date for ''Take the Hobbit to Isengard''.  It is this Saturday.  I have corrected it in the schedule.

re: September?

If we do the starting runs Aug 30 and 31 will it continue onto September with the rest?

re: Eleventh Annual Month o' the Chicken

Not as a regular thing.   If you need help, we will gladly provide it.   Come to the runs and we shall see what needs to be done.   In reality, the only difficult runs are Bree-land and Trollshaws (Rivendell) in the Flying the Coop level.  Many solo the entire Flying the Coop Quests.

The Free Range Run and above come round rarely as they are more challenging and dangerous. These are offered randomly throughout the year as the leader(s) have the time and energy to do so.  Free Range is ALWAYS offered during  Month of the Chicken (August). 

Respectfully,

Rebra
