Schedule change to the 3rd Conference on Middle earth, Part 2
It's actually more of a delay and transformation. The 3rd Conference on Middle Earth will become Conference on Middle Earth 4, and is now tentatively planned for some time in 2015.
Why the schedule change? For those of you who may not have yet heard, Thain Peregrin Took III, aka jan howard finder, passed away in February. Faithful to the cause he held dear, we, his support staff, have been working to bring 3rd COME to fruition. However, life has been handing us lemons and we can't squeeze them fast enough. One of the "lemons" is a lemon of joy; we celebrated the arrival of a baby girl to our group. But as you know, babies use up a lot of time and energy.
It was with great reluctance that we realized we just couldn't get done what needed to get done in time to put on 3rd COME, Part 2, and make it as much fun as the first one. We didn't feel that it would be fair to you to host a conference that wasn't fully up to the standards our Thain held, so after much deliberation (and lemonade,) we made the decision to postpone and transform the event.
This transition to Conference On Middle earth 4 will allow us the time to review submitted papers and look for more. So if you haven't written that 'little paper' you wanted to write for the conference, now is the time to get started. As the details are finalized, we'll be keeping you posted with updates on the new conference & submission deadline dates, hotel rates, registration and other important information.
Those who have paid memberships can either contact us about having their memberships refunded, or roll that membership over to Conference On Middle Earth 4.
We're looking forward to helping with the evolution of the new conference, and hope you will continue to stay involved and support our efforts. If you're as excited about this project as we are, please feel free to contact us and request to be a Conference volunteer.
