Re: [mythsoc] Deadline for current price?
- I know she has been having problems getting a checking account set up.
It is partially my fault. She's decided, after a lot of hassle trying to
set it up with the Tolkien Society information (since they are a British
Corp) to use the MythSoc ID# and my paperwork for that got buried in a
home office reshuffling. Digging it out in the next week, I hope.

excuse for not notifying the people who have sent her checks that there's
going to be some delay in depositing their check. All it would take is one
letter to anyone who sent her a check saying that their check has been
received, but there will be a delay. I got no reply to about six letters
sent to Lynn and the British people in charge of Tolkien 2005. If not for
seeing Lynn at Mythcon last year, I would have had to assume that the
conference had been cancelled and that all the letters sent to them were
being thrown away. I suspect that Tolkien 2005 has lost some potential
members who sent a check and also got no reply, but who didn't happen to see
Lynn at Mythcon like I did.

Apparently the fiftieth anniversary is being marked from publication
of the final volume?
Why not a year-long celebration from 2004 to 2005?
