The TarValon.Net Membership Manual contains additional information on this topic.

Since its inception, TarValon.Net has participated in numerous Official Events each year. Some are organised by the Department of Events and Conferences, while other are conferences in which we participate as a group. There are also numerous unofficial local gatherings held all over the world by our members.

Official parties held in North American have their own tracking map.

Local Events

If several members live in the same area many will try to arrange unofficial meet ups every once in a while. Likewise, if another Tower member is coming to the area they may arrange to meet up, to show the visitor the area (even if it's just the inside of a pub).
