MEET ROBIN AT THE 2012 TARZANA ECOF : Saturday 9:30 am
Author of JANE:  The Woman Who Loved Tarzan
Robin will be giving a multi-media presentation:

"Tribute to Tarzan and Jane -- The First Hundred Years."
"My next novel – it won’t be published till September 2012, is JANE:  The Woman Who Loved Tarzan.  It’s set in 1912 and it’s fiction, so I suppose it could be considered historical fiction.  But it was written (with the full authorization and support of the Edgar Rice Burroughs Estate) as a Tarzan classic.  It's the first novel in the ERB Tarzan franchise to be penned by a woman, and the first of the series written from Jane’s point of view.  It crosses several genres (adventure, sci-fi/fantasy, romance, and women’s literature), but at its heart it is, like all my other books, the story of a strong, fabulous woman who stands tall under extraordinary circumstances." INTERVIEW ~ Robin Maxwell

Overview

Our Dum-Dum starts off on Sunday with exploring (and buying) the treasures of the huckster room, two informative panels, afternoon book/museum crawl in historic Old Town Pocatello, Pokey dinner on your own and then the BB board meeting at 9 pm in the hotel’s Board Room for all attendees. 

Monday involves you with an all-day guided tour in an air-conditioned bus of Burroughs Territory including Yale, Raft River, Minidoka, Jerome, Burley, Rupert, the original Burroughs ranch, American Falls, and (if time) the Craters of the Moon and the Fort Hall Replica site.

Tuesday brings more huckster treasure hunt, another great panel, BB benefit auction, our grand banquet, ending with our traditional Mucker/Panthan joint meeting

Wednesday features our Farewell Breakfast followed by more sightseeing for those staying on in Idaho, especially as the Shoshone-Bannock Indian Festival kicks off on Thursday. 

Your registration fee of $75.00 includes the Burroughs Territory road trip guide, banquet, goodie bag, access to huckster room, panel/chat events and the privilege of fondling all auction items. Our registration form and program schedule are up on the web. All events will be held in the Madeira Room (65’x20’ - 1,300 sq ft) which, for you Gridley Wave enthusiasts, has wi-fi. BTW, the Clarion Inn is also HQ for Sho-Ban Festival celebrities so you might see the Head Man Dancer and members of the two Host Drums from the Northern Cree and Comanche tribes. 

Come join us in this area of ERB's early life and really take time to see the surrounding country. For further information, contact our organizers John Tyner tyner@taliesan.com and/or Joan Bledig jthev@aol.com


Since most folks will be taking time to sightsee in the general area (since the BBs have never ventured to Idaho for a meeting before) we invite you to check-in on Saturday and get settled in Pocatello or “Pokey” and share tales on Saturday night. If you are flying, best and least-expensive suggestion is to fly to Salt Lake City and rent a car for the three hour drive to Pokey. One can fly to Pokey from Salt Lake City but it is expensive.  Alternatively you could fly to Boise and drive down from there.   For those of you driving, I-15 and I-86 intersect outside of town.

2010 ECOF GATHERING: June 4 - 6
The Baltimore Area and Shenandoah Caverns, Virginia

Announcement to All
The National Capital Panthans invite you to join them for an adventurous weekend on June 4-6, 2010 culminating in an expedition to Pellucidar for those gilaks brave enough to gather in the Hall of the Giants led by our own Lt. von Horst. 

A tentative agenda is attached for your edification, featuring side trips to Baltimore and the Nation's Capitol to prepare you for meeting our Shenandoah mahars.  While there is no fee and no "host hotel" for this adventure, you must register with us IN ADVANCE so we can determine the scope of our needed adventure support.  However, you will need to bring some form of monetary remuneration with you to spend at the venues, especially the bookshop crawls and restaurants….

For the out-of-towners, as in the past, there will be some limited availability for housing in a few Panthan homes.  For those of you wanting hotel accommodations, we suggest that you may wish to use the Hilton Hotel in Rockville, familiar to those of you who came to our 2006 Dum-Dum/ECOF, as it is at the Twinbrook metrorail station, giving you access to our DC events. 

If you wish to participate, please email your name and email address to tyner@taliesan.com so we can provide you more information as it is available. 
We ALL still live,
JT2 ~ Silverback Emeritus

Tarzan convention, comic book show headed to Waterloo in July
WCF Courier ~  May 10, 2008
WATERLOO --- One of the most popular fictional characters of all time will be swinging into Waterloo the weekend of July 25-26 when the national Tarzan convention, known as a Dum Dum, arrives at the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center. The convention celebrates the most famous creation of Edgar Rice Burroughs, a prolific author who wrote 26 Tarzan novels. The Tarzan event will be held in conjunction with the Iowa Comic Book Collectors Show in the same facility. Both events will be free to the public except for the closing banquet on Saturday night. The main guest will be Denny Miller, who played Tarzan in the 1959 feature film, "Tarzan, the Apeman," and has appeared in more than 25 movies and 100 television shows. Other guests are Jack Bender, a native of Waterloo and former Courier cartoonist who draws the nationally syndicated Alley Oop newspaper strip; Dave Fury, author of a new book on the late actress Maureen O'Sullivan, "No Average Jane"; and Mike Chapman, author of two books on movie Tarzans, Herman Brix/Bruce Bennett and Glenn Morris.

CELEBRITY GUESTS

The Art of Richard Hescox
Richard Hescox is known to Burroughs fans for his beautiful paintings for the Venus stories, pictured on the covers to the Ballantine/Del Rey paperbacks of 1991. He was born in Pasadena, California, and soon rose to prominence in the art world with over 130 cover paintings fo rmajor publishing houses, and Hollywood advertising and design artist for such films as E.T., The Never-Ending Story, and The Time Bandits. In his spare time he has turned to fine art painting, and has been exhibited at many American art galleries and The Society of Illustratros in New York City. He recently moved to Reno, Nevada with his wife and son, and we are happy to introduce him to Burroughs fans at the 2007 Dum-Dum in Louisville. Much of his work is featured at: www.richardhescox.com
DENNY MILLER
Denny Miller's face is well known to Burroughs fans, and to the rest of the world, which is why he called his autobiography, Didn't You Used to Be What's His Name? In addition to playing Tarzan the Ape Man in 1959, he has made over 100 films and 37 TV commercials. Besides that, he is one of the greatest human beings ever to tread the planet, so we are pleased and privileged to welcome him back for Dum-Dum 2007. 

He and our other special guests will be featured on our "Meet the Artists" panel, followed by audience participation in a questions and answers session. See also ERBzine 1480

TARZAN THE MUSICAL (NY | Holland)
Tarzan the Musical from Disney Theatrical has taken two continents by storm over the last year generating record attendances and excitement from fans and critics alike. The Disney people have promised to send a representative to regale the Bibliophiles with  behind the scenes information. The ERBzine editors have attended both premieres -- Broadway and Netherlands -- and share many photos and reviews at:
www.ERBzine.com/disney (Broadway production)
www.ERBzine.com/holland (European production)
BURROUGHS BIBLIOPHILE ACTIVITIES
Herman Brix / Bruce Bennett and Gordon Scott will be remembered at a special panel discussion moderated by Mike Chapman who wrote the Brix bio. Another panel discusses the Bibliophiles, past, present and future. Dorothy Howell and Joan Bledig will entertain with a slide show and Burroughs Jeopardy! game.

Important Information for anyone planning on attending the 
Dum-Dum in Oak Park & Chicago this August!

If you are planning on going to the Museum of Science and Industry to see the Colleen Moore Fairy Castle and the tiny book TARZAN JR, please let Jerry Spannraft or Mike Conran know before July 21st.

Jerry is going to purchase non refundable group tickets from the Museum for those making the trip.  Because the tickets are non refundable, it is important that we have an accurate head count for the group going the Museum.

If you know you are NOT planning on the trip to the Museum, let us know so we have an accurate count.

Thanks,

Dum-Dum host Jerry Spannraft has expressed concern that many attendees have not yet registered at the hotel.  He wants to let everyone know that only 30 rooms are set aside for the Dum-Dum.  That is 50% of the rooms in the hotel.  When they are gone, you will need to find another hotel.  The only other hotel in Oak Park charges $250 a night.

If you stay out of the village of Oak Park you will have problems parking.  The village is very strict about on-street parking.  However, those staying at the Write Inn will receive free parking.

For those planning on arriving on Thursday, be aware that the bus leaving for the Museum of Science and Industry to view the Colleen Moore Fairy Castle and the book TARZAN JR. is leaving the Write Inn at 10:00 am.  This is a trip you will not want to miss!  But if you are not at the Write Inn at 10:00 am, you will not be on the bus!  This is a unique opportunity to view the one-of-a-kind miniature book TARZAN JR. (written by ERB and illustrated by JCB) as the Museum of Science and Industry has agreed to remove the book from the library and have it on display in a special case for us. 

You can reserve a room by calling the Write Inn at (708)-383-4800, 
be sure to ask for the Dum-Dum rate.

Glenn Morris bio by Mike Chapman
Honoring Glenn Morris, 1936 Olympic champion and film Tarzan No. 9, and enjoying the beauty of Colorado will be two of the main attractions of the 2004 Dum Dum. It is set for June 25-26 in Fort Collins, the home of Colorado State University.

Mike Chapman will host the event. He is author of the book The Gold and The Glory, which is the biography of Glenn Morris. He also hosted the 1997 Dum Dum in Newton, Iowa.

Mike offered Fort Collins to be the 2004 host site due to Glenn Morris’s connection to Tarzan, and because of the geographical beauty of the setting. Mike currently lives in Newton, Iowa, but was sports editor of the Fort Collins newspaper in the 1970s.

 “Dum-Dum people who have never been to Fort Collins are in for a real treat,” said Mike. “The Rocky Mountains flank Fort Collins on its western side and provide a majestic landscape. It is a beautiful setting.”

Mike’s two daughters live there and he visits the city frequently. He spent several days in Fort Collins in November to begin building interest in the Dum Dum. He met with the mayor, the executive director of the Fort Collins Convention and Visitors Bureau, and was also the guest speaker at seven different service organizations … all within a three-day period. He was also interviewed on the largest radio station in Fort Collins.

 “The mayor is going to declare Saturday, June 26, as Glenn Morris Day in Fort Collins,” said Mike. “He has pledged to help support the weekend event in any way he can. And so has the director of the convention and visitors bureau. They are really excited about this event coming to Fort Collins.”

The Dum Dum will be held at the Ramada Inn, which sits just 100 yards off of Interstate 25, the busiest freeway in the entire state. It connects Fort Collins (a city of 150,000) to Denver (50 miles south) and Cheyenne, Wyoming (35 miles north). 

The basic rate is $59 a night for Dum-Dum attendees. 
You can call 970-484-4660 to make your reservation.

Mike also met with officials from Colorado State University, where Morris was a standout athlete in both football and track. The college officials are also excited about the event coming to Fort Collins. “Colorado State University athletic people think this is wonderful,” said Mike. “They are going to promote the event on their web site and in press releases.”

The Dum Dum weekend will include showing of Glenn’s Tarzan film, “Tarzan’s Revenge,” and two other films he appeared in. “Decathlon Champion” is a ten-minute short produced shortly after his gold-medal performance in the Berlin Olympics. “Hold That Co-Ed” is a campus comedy starring George Murphy, Joan Davis and John Barrymore. Morris plays a college football star and is seen throughout the film.

A local running club is hosting a Glenn Morris 5K run on Friday, June 25. It will begin at 6 p.m. at the South College Fieldhouse ? the very spot where Glenn Morris trained for the Olympics in 1936. Dum Dum attendees will be able to walk on the indoor track where Glenn trained and see the brand new “Glenn Morris-CSU Track Hall of Fame” that has been established in the South College Fieldhouse.

The gold medal that Glenn won in 1936 in Berlin in the decathlon will be on display during the Dum Dum. Morris Ververs, a former high school principal in Glenn’s hometown of Simla, Colorado, is the custodian of the gold medal. He and Jim Larson, who served with Glenn Morris in the Navy during World War II, will both attend the convention.

Denny Miller, who played Tarzan in 1959 and starred on the TV hit series “Wagon Train,” will be one of the special guests in Fort Collins. He has just written his autobiography and it will be available at the Dum Dum.

A panel discussion is being planned to discuss the careers of the four Olympic athletes who played Tarzan ? Johnny Weissmuller, Herman Brix, Buster Crabbe and Glenn Morris. Mike says he is working on several other major guests.

More details will be forthcoming soon.

    Dum-Dum Trivia:
    While filming the Tarzan and the Rainbow in 1970, on location at Rainbow Springs, Steve Hawkes (Tarzan) and Kitty Svanholm (Jane) were badly burned. During the filming of a torture scene, the two actors were tied to stakes when gasoline-soaked leaves ignited and both were burned seriously. They were rushed to the University of Florida Medical Centre in Gainsville. They remained there for months for skin graft treatment, while the rest of the crew departed for Bogota, Columbia and on to Spain,  to shoot more scenes. The film  eventually saw Spanish release in 1974.
