Outdoor cinema for #gtstoogies Week 3

This week the #gtstoogies Outdoor Cinema will the screening The Return of the King, the third and final film in the epic Lord of the Rings trilogy.  The Memory Elephant, the Dabrowski Dogs and the Twitter Birds will be going to the pictures as well as to the #RSCON3 Reflections Party http://reformsymposium.com/conferences/rscon3/rscon3-reflections-party/

Emotional Dabrowski loves all the beautiful New Zealand scenery in the films especially all the scenes in the Hobbit holes at Bagend and she takes a roller coaster ride of emotions every time she watches the films.
Intellectual Dabrowski is being a bit tedious and delivering a lengthy lecture about the geography of New Zealand to a visiting kiwi  who fortunately is quite good natured and humours him.

One Twitter Bird who has been busy for the last couple of weeks drawing smiley emoticons on white boards thought he was supposed to draw a smiley on the screen until people started calling out “Sit down in the front!”

The Pre-Post Party Party

 

There will be a Reflections Party for #RSCON3 Reform Symposium this weekend. The invitation and all the details can be found at http://reformsymposium.com/conferences/rscon3/rscon3-reflections-party/

Sprite, the Memory Elephant, the Dabrowski Dogs and the Twitter Birds are having a Pre-Post Party Party to make sure they have their party hats on and all their reflections collected.  They have brought out the  Take Away from RSCON3 screen capture slide so that they can sign it to express their thanks to the organizers, presenters and moderators.

Outdoor cinema for #gtstoogies Week 2

Last week the #gtstoogies enjoyed an evening at the outdoor cinema to watch The Lord of the Rings.

I was not able to participate as I was very much involved with attending the #RSCON3 Reform Symposium.
But fortunately for me The Lord of the Rings is an epic trilogy which is usually screened in three sittings and I am able to attend this week.
The Twitter birds who were helping me collate links to slide shares and blogs from the RSCON3 Presenters and links to blogs from the RSCON3 Attendees are taking some well earned time off and enjoying the film as well.
