Ultimately, I don't care where it is, I'll be rolling up in there regardless! I need my pony getaway!

I hope we hear something soon!

My summer plans aren't all concrete yet, but I do know that my husband's class reunion is this summer and we won't want to miss that. There are also talks of a vacation of some sort with our friends. So hopefully the fair won't clash with either of those, because I'd hate to miss out on going since I didn't make it last year.

I really, really hope they don't cap tickets this year!   

I understand NOT putting a local Groupon out there (one year we got lots of confused parents and small children upset that we were "stealing the kids' toys") but once you start making the "Exclusive Convention Club" elitist.... it's really hard to change that perception!  :(

My understanding was that part of it was the Groupon, part of it was the lack of space available, and part because a 'closed event' with no ticket sales at the door, meant sellers weren't going to have to deal with paying taxes on sales?

Part of it is probably also because there was a lot more theft at the last few 'open' ones; too.  A smaller event is easier to control things like that.

I don't really think 'elitist' fits, because the only limitation is that the tickets be bought ahead. They aren't saving them for certain people or anything like that, or saying you have to be "selected" to have a booth, like some other cons do, after all.

The thing that makes me a little sad about capping the event is that I always bring someone with me, and it's never been anyone interested in buying ponies.  I think the friend I brought this past year bought a little bit of art, but that's all. I'd worry that I was knocking someone that would buy from the vendors out of a ticket by bringing a guest, but it's unavoidable, I need someone else to take over part of the driving, and I don't really have any friends to hang out with at the convention other than whoever I bring.

I'd love it to be in Nashville or Atlanta... I think I could swing going to somewhere up north or back in a central state...

Just Checking in :D

Can't wait to hear the news. As soon as it's announced I'll have to start cleaning all my G1 ponies for sale... it's going to be epic. I've gathered boxes upon boxes of G1 ponies and accessories that I haven't sorted in at least 10 years.

Nashville would be workable, that would be fun too. I just hope I can still drive to it reasonably. ;D

I just want to know when/where so i can make sure to allocate enough days for travel and if it's the same weekend as last year it's during D23 which I was hoping to attend this year... but Pony Fair is always top priority.

The wait is killing ME! Hahaha. Location depends if I can go or not....sigh funding is the issue. I have wanted to go since I discovered it was held in Minnesota. Never knew about it until then. Can not wait to hear where it is:)

me to its all about the location as well as the logistics.. as i do not drive it is a little difficult getting around.  plus am i taking a bus or a plane? is the bus stop or airport close to the hotel or close to the place where the fair will be held etc.... it all depends
