 This is a page for the pony meets I've attended.

So far I have attended the McHenry Meet 2 years in a row.  This meet is one of those coordinated through the Midwest MLP Yahoo group.  This group is focused mainly on Midwest collectors, but anyone is welcome to join.

Pony Meet 2002 --- McHenry, IL  Aug 10-11

   This was a lot of fun.  The first day we mostly just oohed and ahhed over the ponies everyone brought.   Later we had a reading contest.  (Those people that wrote the pony books were not normal).  We watched Unico (an older anamae' movie) and Firefly's Adventure.  Most of us slept over at the meet.

    Early Sunday morning some of us went to the flea market.  All of us who went found something.  When we got back we showed off our finds.  We played pony trivia.  There was a pony race.  Baby Bow Tie won and Pearly Baby Moondancer came in last.  When I left "Identify the fakie" was in full swing.

Pony Meet 2003 --- McHenry, IL  July 26-27

   With a total of 9 collectors and 2 husbands, this meet was another success.  Activities were a little more spread out over both days this year to help include everybody.  Everybody got to pick a custom-bait pony when they arrived.

  

    One of the first events was the Annual Pony Race which Baby Bow Tie won (me).  Took a fieldtrip to Toys R Us to look for the new ponies and played with them when we got back.  We also watched movies before bed.

   

    Among the activities today there was the annual fakie contest and a customizing contest.  If anyone asks if the new ponies are sturdy, it took over 30 minutes for him to behead Sparkleworks.  A few people drifted in off the street to admire and remember MLP.
