Okay, let’s talk activities! :awake:

-We should have a coloring contest this meet, since that’s one of our staple activities. Who shall be our meet pony this time around? I would like to propose we select a pony from the following groups: tropical/baby tropical, sunshine, happy tails, summer wings, windy wings, flutter (both years), and merry-go-round. :)

-Dice game will most likely happen, since that’s a favorite for many.

-Do we want to have a customs presentation again? Let me know if ponies want one, and I can do that again (and hopefully make it a bit more cohesive ;p ).

-Diana, what do you think of people making their own felty pony? We could have the bodies sewed and mostly stuffed, people would just decorate and add yarn hair.

-Bean bag toss?

-Raffle? This one isn’t going to be at someone’s house, so I don’t know that this one is necessary. :huh:

-Board games (G1, at least)

Let me know if you’ve other ideas for activities we could do, and any feed back for the current ones listed! :D once the date poll is over, we can switch it to the group the meet pony should come from - unless folks just want me to pick someone. That could be done, too. ;)

I know Nimrodel and her husband are into board and tabletop games, and Erick is huge on them as well. Maybe we can do some gaming as a side activity, for whoever wamts to? We have a moderate selection of tabletop games we could pick from to bring.

That's a great idea! Maybe we can scout out other pony/unicorn themed games?

I picked up the merry go round stamping game at the last meet, and I also have the merry go round adventure gane! :) I also have the unstable unicorns game. :D

I think Unstable Unicorns might be a little... risque for a family friendly event.
I'm also gonna say the rodeo should be an outside thing, so we should skip that for this meet.
I'm interested to see how the board games go, though! I have a Candyland-like game that I can bring. You have to bring your own little playing pieces, though- I'm not opening them up!

I was thinking about how to split the cost of the event center fairly. If everyone who is vending (setting up a table to sell things) pays $5-10 (depending how many people can make it), or maybe $5 a table so people who need two tables (me!) could contribute a little more?
Thoughts?

I wouldn't know about then non-family friendly aspect of it; haven't played it yet. I do have all the expansions, the but, er, "adult" themed deck is not mixed in; I left it in its own box. ^^;

No outside space at all this time, then? No worries; I'll nix those then. :)

Edit: Do we want to try having a customs contest this meet? :D

I googled it- you are right. Looks ok. I just sort of lumped it with Cards Against Humanity!

Customs contests are very pretty, and I love to see what people can do. We could also just do a display--- I am a huge fan of all kinds of contests, but sometimes our participation in them is a little lacking. Ponyqueen, if the party isn't at your house, are you going to enter an art contest? Will you do the whole thing with your left hand?

Okay! I have requested the first off! Here’s hoping it gets approved. :awake:

If it’s Aurora approved we should be good to go, then! I shall see about remembering to bring it along for the games to play part. :satisfied:

Art contest as well as customs contest sounds fun! I like this plan, since I know we have at least 3 artists in our group. :D

I have made suggestions for the meet pony; see the above activities post. ^.^

Just want to say I love the idea of a customs or art display. I probably wouldn't join a contest...but I like when we all share things we made!!

By the way, were there any pictures taken at the last meet? I'm curious to see how the rodeo went :)

My nephew took pictures of the Rodeo, I will get those sent to me! It was silly fun, and I would like my Discord to get another chance, but this venue is a little too inside. Jocelyn, keep working on your head, we will ride again!

Kazz, I could not for the life of me remember where you put that list! Thank you!
I went through and looked at the activities again, i think a felt pony would be fun! I have plenty of embroidery floss, and felt is cheap, let me look into the rest of this!

Hahaha! Aurora Approved! I just couldn't function last night, or we would already be on the next step!
