So, we planned, we partied, we cleaned up afterwards... :) What did you think of our first A-U Ball? Personally, I thought it was fantastic! Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and many people found time to stop by even for just a few moments....I loved having such a party for LotR's sake as well as to celebrate our friendships here. So, now it's your turn, let us know what you thought? Should we do it again? Should we maybe do more than one a year? Things you loved? Things to try next time? Try to keep it positive but do let us know if there are things to make different, too :)

I had intended to attend the ball a lot longer, but I found it nearly impossible due to some family issues that came up. The time I did spend there was very fun, filled with some good fellowship. I really do hope we have another ball again, hopefully at a better time so that I might be able to to attend for a longer amount of time. :)

I voted "Quite a lovely time, with food, fellowship, and fun..."

I voted the same as Larael. I enjoyed myself but I was also a bit disappointed that not many people really attended. And the sad thing was that plenty of people were posting in the MR section but not on the ball threads. It didn't really matter to me that my escort was not always available as I just liked to interact with whoever was there, but there seemed to be just a few of us actually posting. Which is a real shame considering how much effort everyone put into it. But at the end of the day, those who decided to ignore the threads missed out on a gathering of the lovely AU members. :-)

Perhaps a winter ball would be good? what does everyone think? I think sooner may be hard with the member awards next round starting and a lot of folks are busy with school/work/family, but around the holiday season perhaps we'd all be able to come to a party then at least for a bit? Also, that way we wouldn't have so many parties back to back that they'd become mundane, and it'd give us mods time to make up advertisements/banners, and plan some more. :) I'd like to get the word out on a next one more in advance so more people are aware of it and attend. Maybe it could be like an Elven feast, last for days...a week even? Let us know what you think, we'd love your input.

I think that would be a good idea! Perhaps to help spread the word, members could have banners in their sig with the date and things like that? And those of use who have been before could perhaps encourage others to take a look. I think next time though it doesn't have to be:

"and as she looked round she noticed....."

I think it would be less formal and RP-ish if we just posted as normal. :-)

I was very disappointed that this time around, I only had a bit of time to poke my head in and then jump out again. RL has me really busy, too. But if it's during winter break and lasts a week, certainly more people with my problem would be able to attend. :)
