- Hi,I am one of those who lurk, rarely if ever post, am not a member (actually not sure why I haven't signed up...) and yet have attended a few of the MythCons. I saw the message from Sherryl.

Roughly speaking, there is a group of about Mythcon-going 100 Mythopoeic Society members, about half of which occasionally post to this group. (I don't know if the other half don't belong to the mailing list or if they don't ever post.) I usually expect at least 50 of that group of 100 or so members to be at any given Mythcon.
I'm one of those 100 or so people who are at most Mythcons.Wendell WagnerIn a message dated 1/23/2011 12:48:41 P.M. Eastern Standard Time, SherrytTreeHouse@... writes:
Who has been to the annual conference?

- ;-)I discovered the society through the mention of Mythlore in a discussion thread on usenet (in one of the Tolkien groups).Being in Denmark, going to a Mythcon is likely to remain a dream for a long time yet (we've still got four kids living at home, but once they have all left the nest . . . who knows, perhaps . . .) The UK is a little closer, so I'll be going to the Return of the Ring next year in Loughborough, which I am looking very much forward to ('looking forward' as in a ten-years-old excitedly jumping up and down in the chair asking 'Is it my birthday soon? Is it my birthday soon? Is it my . . .?')/TroelsOn 23 January 2011 18:48, Tree Lady <SherrytTreeHouse@...> wrote:
Thank you, Troels!
At the risk of starting a new thread (Oh, no!) how did you all discover the Inklings and the Mythopoeic Society? Who has been to the annual conference? (Alas, not me.)

Love while you've got
love to give.
Live while you've got
life to live.

- Hey! Mythcon was incorporated into the 1992 Tolkien Centenary Conference (which was *glorious* imho) and also the 2005 LotR 50th Anniversary conference in Birmingham... so *sometimes* Mythcons are on the eastern side of the Atlantic ocean!
Still, I know what you mean - it would be lovely if we could all access transporters and just *be* there....
