Jeff Morris Worldwide Invitational Bocce Ball Court

It’s really pretty simple. A bunch of people are giving $500 each to build the Jeff Morris Worldwide Invitational Bocce Ball Court on the upper lawn of Engelbrecht House.

1. Give $500 and your name will be on the plaque, AND THEN
2. You can attend the Worthless Bastards Bocce Ball event (on a day yet to be named,) OR
3. You can opt for a $500 credit on an upcoming class for which you have not yet signed up.

Let’s do this thing!

Call Daniel Whittington at 512.720.8801 to contribute!

This is the photo of Jeff that will be on the bronze plaque at the Bocce Ball Court. Jeff is the editor responsible for the interior design and layout of the Wizard of Ads trilogy.

I’m expecting Jeff to show up and hang out with us when we play Bocce for the first time together. It’s funner than you think. Think of what you might learn from him.

Want to have your name on this plaque?
Want to play Bocce with Jeff and the other Worthless Bastards?
You know what to do.

Become a Hobbit of the Shire
In appreciation of your gift of $100, Wizard Academy will send you
an official certificate – suitable for framing – naming you as 1 of
only 300 Hobbits of the Shire.

In addition, you’ll be invited to the “Hobbits Only” unveiling party at Wizard Academy when Bag End is complete. We’ll have food, music, and entertainment. We may even do a bit of teaching. Trust us, it will be the best $100 you ever gave. 

As a matter of fact, this would be an awesome gift to give a friend. Sign up yourself and a friend and then you can both come together. They win, you win, the academy wins, and Bag End comes into being.

Finally, your signature will appear in the leather-bound registration book of The Hobbits of the Shire that will be featured in the Grand Library of the academy’s central tower. Likewise, the names of all 300 Hobbits of the Shire will be listed in the Official Academy Guidebook sold in the academy’s welcome center.

You’re going to go down in history, just like the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

Well, not exactly like them, but you get the idea.

You can give online by clicking on the “donate” button to the right, or you can help us by telephone. Just call (512) 295-5700 and ask for Daniel Whittington. Your help is appreciated far more than you know.
