The Winners


Congratulations to the winners of The Barrow-Downs Fellowship of the Ring Essay Contest! We had almost 250 essays submitted, and most of them were very good, so the competition was fierce. Gollum was our most written about Fellowship 'member', with Samwise Gamgee coming in a close second. Surprisingly, we did get as many love letters to Legolas as we thought we might. Excellent!!
