We do have tables to set up on, but sometimes surfaces are limited- so it is advisable to bring TV tables or craft tables if you have one.  Ponies take up space!

SHOW AND TELLHave a neat pony to share? Rare pony? Pony from your childhood? Nirvana? Bring it and tell us about it! It is okay if you have brought it to prior meets!

CRAFTY TIME
That's right, bring some crafts to work on!  If I can figure out the media - I will try and arrange so that we can play a pony movie!  (I'll have a laptop but if anyone has a projector?? That would be really really awesome! Also- if you have pony movies to share, bring them!)

CUSTOM CONTESTS

1) PONY CUSTOM CONTEST :  "WEATHER THEME" pony of any generation (please no ponies you have used for swaps or other contests!)
2) 2d ART CONTEST (only restriction is that it be pony related!)
3) 3d ART and CRAFTED GOODS CONTEST  (for everything else that you might make! Only       limitation is that it be pony related)
4) COLORING CONTEST That's right- bring your markers, colored pencils and crayons- because there will be a coloring contest!

MANY MANY FABULOUS PRIZES !!

PLEASE BRING
POTLUCK - bring snacks or drinks to share!
* Bring MLP Coloring Books to help the coloring contest!

I believe the 6th of August 2016 would be better since that is a Saturday. ;) I'll start working on some design ideas. :)

I'd love to plan to go next year. It's a bit of a drive but since I've got time to plan ahead maybe I can work it out. I'd have my girls in tow. I'm sure they'd love it. How many people usually attend out of curiosity. I've never been to one and tend to shy away from groups of people I don't know but a pony meet seems like it would be fun. Plus I'd love to see some of the talented artists work firsthand.
Also is there a brag or pic thread from this years meet so I can peek through and see how it went?

It would be great if you could come Jenny! Attendance varies- usually between about 12 and 20-something, this year was on the low end of attendance.  It's never too crazy, more like a friendly gathering, we swap ponies, do some crafts, visit and eat food :D

I didn't think to bring my camera this last time so I don't have photos!  But here is an album from our first year to give you an idea:   https://picasaweb.google.com/troellchen66/PonyS

I think there's actually a pretty good range of ages! Some of us bring our kiddos too.  And let's be honest, we're really all about 10 at heart. ;)

I'm sure you wouldn't feel out of place Ponyshoes. I've not been to a meet but everything I've heard of pony people says they're all very welcoming and accepting of all ages. The meet seems like a very laid back friendly environment.

Definitely a huge range of ages- you are not going to feel out of place- it is a very informal fun event, in fact people often bring their moms, friends, kids-
