Minnesota May Meet! May 27th Down South on the Farm
« on: March 01, 2017, 06:29:43 PM »
Hello, Minnesota (and surrounding states!)! It doesn't really look like Spring today, but by May, it should be sunny and bright, the trees will be that lovely Mimic Green, the grass will no long be Jenny Brown, and the birds will be singing... whatever pony color birds sing in! Time to get together!


Host Ponies: Glory and Firefly. They're pretty thrilled about hosting together!

When: Saturday, May 27th, from 10 am until 4 pm, but feel free to come earlier/stay later. (If you want to camp on the yard, we've got space!)
Where: Aurora's House- sort of by Albert Lea. Better directions will be pm'd before the meet. It's about 1.5 hours from PonyQueen's house.
What to Bring, Food: Potluck Item. We'll be grilling or cooking the main course, you should bring side dishes and deserts.
What to Bring, Pony: Ponies to sell and show off, money to buy aforementioned ponies. Something for the prize table if you are able- this doesn't have to be a Pony Thing- it could be a food item or something the non-collectors might be interested in.

I've gotten us a DJ! He's a friend of the family trying to make this DJ thing work, and he's pretty nervous about playing a bunch of music he's never heard before. Fun!

My house is a hobby farm, and by May there should be baby piggies along with the normal poultry and pets running around. The corn will be just springing up, and you'll be able to see the wind farms!

There will be games, prizes, and of course, a tour of the pony room. Don't wear the fancy pants, we have dirt. Probably mud.

Who Will Be There?
Yes!

Aurora plus about 5 people
Kazzellin
Blackfrost & Mom
Scarlettkitty81
Sapphire Rain
Eternia
MNGusty +3
Bianca

No (boo!)
PonyQueen
Aquatic Neon
Patchwork

Maybe?
Wizzer218
Delphian

Potluck list:
Aurora: Main dish, pork-oriented
Bottled water
Blackfrost: Cupcakes

Woo! Sounds great! Best of all, it's after classes are out for the semester, so I know I'll be able to make it! :D Too bad it's early for rhubarb, but I'm sure I'll think of something else to bring - like the blackberry swirl cheesecake I mentioned last time and wasn't able to deliver on. ;)
My creativity keeps running into the wall of "it's already been done."  :argh:

me and mom game for coming! I'd love to see baby pigs and be on a hobby farm again.   Use to have one but actually had horses.. and well horses and cats and several dogs.

We're going to try and bring something desert wise, unless you think or anything else really.. but its still early we got time to figure it out..
Weeeeeeheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I was pondering that, and I don't think there is. I can message a few of the regulars- I'll do that next week if they don't show up by then. I'm glad you guys found it, though!

I am gathering a small group of family to help out with the background work, and to keep the dog from jumping on anyone. He's got horrible manners, but he's a good boy. So when we are figuring out how many cupcakes to make, it will include at least 5 hungry non-collectors and a toddler.

And I was serious about not wearing good clothes- we are on a dirt road, with a dirt driveway, and a lot of dirt. If there's rain, there will be mud!

It's a little too early for me to say yes or no for sure, but I'll definitely try. :D I don't know how well my allergies will hold out though. Are there any horses on your farm?

I'm closer to Iowa than I am to the Twin Cities, that's for sure! The closest town to me is Wells, if you Google that you might be even closer than you think. Where in Iowa are you?

It's a little too early for me to say yes or no for sure, but I'll definitely try. :D I don't know how well my allergies will hold out though. Are there any horses on your farm?

Animals I have: Poultry- chickens, turkey, guinea fowl. Short-haired dog (Bulldog). Anti-social cat. Boa constrictor (in a cage in a back bedroom, so if this freaks you out, pretend I didn't say it). We usually get baby pigs in April, so there will probably be piggies. They aren't terribly near the house, but the chickens are free-range. Feathers are all over the yard.
The dog, cat, and snake are in the house. We don't generally encourage the poultry or pigs into the house.
I can't think of any other allergens, other than general pollen and dirt. My husband is allergic to a lot of things, so we try to keep the house relatively mold-free.
The only other thing I can think of that might be inconvenient for some people is that the pony room and one of the sales rooms are on the second floor of the house, and there are a few steps to get into the house. If anyone needs me to build a wheelchair ramp, let me know. (I'm only half-kidding here, if anyone has any special mobility issues, let me know.)

And HOORAY! I'm so happy to see other people here!


ETA: I am looking for the Ponyville G3 Rollercoaster. Anyone?

Aurora, I have the set with the roller coaster, though I don't think it's complete. I've been working on selling my ponyvilles, but have never brought it with as I can't find it all. Guess I'll be bringing it along this time! :D
