MN Hearths Warming Eve RL Meet up
« on: November 21, 2018, 10:28:40 PM »
Hey everyone! Planning is underway for the Hearths Warming meet! The meet date is January, still hammering out exact date.

The Hearts Warming meet is going to be our Holiday party!:awake:

So, what's going on?
Location: Starlight Event Center, Waseca, MN - Lynx room
Please bring 5$ to help pay for the rental of the space.
Time: 10-5 (set up around 9)
Date: Jan 12th 2019
Host: G3 Minty

Food:
Everyone will be in charge of their own food.
But there will be a small group that is ordering from the local Mexican restaurant. If you plan on doing this make sure you have enough cash to pay for your portion.
There will be desserts so please bring a small treat to share.

This decision was made via Facebook Messenger, if you have other comments questions or opinions please share them as I'm only relying what has been discussed there.... Since no one is discussing anything here...

Events:
Secret Santa Gift exchange- see second post for details to sign up.

Dice Game- Bring 2 generic gift for us all to fight over. about 2 to 5 dollar range.

Minty dress up contest- bring your g4 minty ( in any form mcPonies included) dress up with fun socks or holiday finery.  Ponies will be judge by hidden ballot.

Kick it up a notch contest - since minty will be our host Pony for the event, it only makes sense for us humans to have a cute, crazy, or just plain silly sock contest. Wear your funnest socks and we will choose a winner of who has the best socks

Tree Decorations- Two teams get 2 rolls of toilet paper and random Christmas decorations to decorate a volunteer like a Christmas Tree. Winners gets bragging rights

Bean Bag Toss- For reals this time! May involve footballs or horseshoes (since I'm pretty sure we can't do an actual horseshoe toss).

Art contest- Make a drawing for the event! Winner chosed by popular vote.

Coloring contest- Color in a pre-made picture at the event; division for kids and adults (cause we all like coloring). Winners chosen by popular vote.

Custom contest- Do you make customs? Make one around the theme of the meet! Winner chosen by popular vote.

It was discussed to skip having an official sales time, if you have trades or sales arranged before thats fine.

Raffle for prizes:
this is an idea I'm still throwing around. Bring a prize to get a ticket, any additional tickets will cost a dollar. Still working on what kind of prizes etc and details of how it will work
Love to hear feedback.

Open to more ideas for events and games!


Who is coming?? :D

There has been alot of discussion about the event in the MN MLP messaging thread. let Kazz or myself know if you haven't been invited yet

If you sign up you are committing to buying a gift for the name and wishlist you receive. please stick to the wishlist. if for some reason you are unable to attend, but still signed up. we'll get info to you for mailing the box.

Sign up deadline: DEC 10th.


SECRET SANTA SWAP SIGN UP
You are are to spend 20$ on items from the wishlist you received. you can spend it on one items, or many items, but you need to spend a minimum of 20$ with a maximum of 25$ (don't want anyone to feel cheated) The items must be on the wishlist.

So please think about this when you are writing your wishlist. Mimic and baby dancing butterflies is not going to happen. Most people with an extra are probably not going to add one to a 20$ Secret Santa Swap. Make sure the items you add to the list are no more than 20$ retail. Even if you chose one larger item, please list several options for your partner or it will be no surprise and it ruins a lot of the fun. Be thorough when completing the list so your Secret Santa has lots of options. We don't all shop the same so keep that in mind.

Like with most swaps. if you have a question for the person you are buying for, message me and I will ask them and get the question back to you. Please remind me who you're buying for, in this case, so I don't have to dig through emails to find who you have.

Message me with the following information.

Title: Secret Santa


-Member Name:
-Email:  in case we lose contact with you.

1. Do you prefer a few small items or one larger item?

2. favorite pony generation?

3. List a few of your favorite or questing ponies (remember out of budget ponies will be overlooked)

4. Do you like customs or other handmade pony items? if yes please list details.

5.  Non pony fandom favorites?

6. Things you do not want to receive.

7. allergies

8. Candies or extra ideas.

9. other random details that will help your SS shop.


I will be keeping a name of everyone who is participating

Joining SS.

How do people feel about non-pony prizes?
Or really any feedback at this point? >_<

You can count me and my boyfriend, Erick as a very strong maybe. He says he wil not drive down there if the weather conditions are bad, but we both have the 12th off, so if the roads aren't bad, we will be there.

Non pony prizes sound rather exciting! There are probably interests that enough people share for it to be fairly competitive - dolls, Pokemon, cute stickers, Disney, Japanese plush, cats, etc. I wouldn't really have any pony prizes because my collection is very unimpressive compared to most of your guys', I wouldn't have anything worthwhile to donate. But I can think of several Pokemon things I own that would be great...

Knowing Erick and I, we would probably jump on the Mexican restaurant group order. Getting food delivered/having everyone be responsible for their own food does make things simpler and easier to manage, so I think it's a good idea. The tree decoration event sounds rather hilarious, too!

Non-pony prizes are a thing that tends to happen. :)

I will do my best to make it to the meet, but as I have to work a half shift that day I will most likely be arriving around noon or so. :cry: (I spoke with the scheduler; should be good to go!)

Edit: I'm okay with the idea of going to the mexican place! :D

My creativity keeps running into a lack of time and resources.  :cry:
I'm also available via twitter at @Kazzellin :)

So many projects!! What do I want to work on? :awake:

ok. so here's my idea for the raffle table.
you can earn tickets through out the day, and at the end well will draw to the number of tickets that we have prizes.

Ways to earn tickets:
1 Ticket for coming
1 Ticket per item/gift donated to the raffle
1 Ticket for every event that you win. (if its a team event you each get a ticket)
1 Ticket for winner of contests (will be anonymous voting)
or you can buy a ticket for a dollar.

What do yall think?

also suggestions for the Host Pony?

I think any money spent to buy raffle tickets would be great to go to the site rental first, then anything over that amount can be saved for the next meet. That sort of just means we give it to Marla, since she is pretty much always in charge of that.
I love the idea of tickets being given out throughout the day.
And tickets as prizes for the raffle table is a great idea, too.

Signed up for the Secret Santa. Let me know if anything is amiss with my form.

Non-Pony Prizes tend to happen no matter what. We all love things other than ponies, and at this point, a pony prize will either be a generation we don't collect, or a little more expensive than we want them to be. I have been storing prizes for years, so I should be able to bring at least three prizes for the table, plus for the dice game.

I also won't be there right away at ten. I might ask for work off so I can enjoy the party more, though. I was pretty dingy at the last one!

maybe we should move back the start time since well. it's a 2 hour drive for me, and most people can't get there at 10 anyway. maybe 11 or noon?

Does anyone object to minty being the host Pony this time? If not I'll start working on artwork for the coloring contest.

I approve of Minty! She's so cute and Christmassy. We should just be sure to avoid balloons, and candy canes on trees, and any chance for her to destroy something.

ETA: I just went and modified my wishlist for my swap partner. If you have trouble finding something pony-related on the list, I have given several other options. As far as I can see, everything is current and I still prefer milk chocolate to dark chocolate. Good to know some things don't change!
