Hope this is allowed but if not then remove it with my apologies.

I co-own a DVD/Blu-ray rental business in Matamata , New Zealand , and thought I'd start a Facebook page of my film hobby hoping to be in contact with more local collectors.
I visit this forum daily and will always as it is great.

Cheers,
Clinton.

Clinton, I guess the town still has a Hobbiton sign, too?

The town is Hobbit mad - well most of the town are - I actually haven't been out to the movie set as it doesn't really interest me much.
It's a multi-million dollar tourist attraction that the info centre says is great for Matamata businesses for $$$$$!
But to be honest the money goes to the Hobbit site and maybe a coffee shop near the info centre as the tourist place has its own pub etc.
But it has put Matamata on the map! [Smile]
