    Lancashire Brony: It's A Pony Kind Of Christmas: Saturday 16th December 2017
    Dice And Donuts, Preston, 11:30am-5pm
    [​IMG]
    Welcome to the First Aniversary of the Preston MLP meet, and just in time for Heath's Warming Eve. Every local pony is welcome to this gathering of the Lancashire herd in Preston - but we know many of you travel hundreds of miles for these preston events.

    Our venue to Dice and Donut's a local gaming cafe that serves coffee, donuts, toasties and beer to the gaming crowd. We have a reserved bank of tables- ok to be honest most of the ground floor. for what will no doubt be a large and friendly gathering.

    The shop is now stocking tails of equestria, and the CCG - we have erh converted them.

    Schedule

    The plan is to meet up at 11:30am at Dice and Donuts.

    Suprises to celebrate a pony kind of christmas
    12:30 Swap presents via secret santa
    13:00 New pony game - of Pony Shuffle! - Hypnohooves has the decks, and if you want to enhance the experience for all the ponies get the app of your mobile phone. A guide on how to play is here
    13:00 MLP-CCG new release limited format (price to be determined) for those not playing the pony shuffle
    14:30 celebrate the 1st anniversay
    15:00 to visit some pony merch in preston for pressies, or remain at dice and donuts for those all shopped out!

    16:00 Back to dice and donuts for beers and chat

    Details:

    Secret Santa

    Bring a present and receive a present!. Those who want to can bring a small wrapped present suitable for a MLP fan to swap. £5 to £10 is the suggested value. (If you are short of ideas argos next to the venue has blindbags as £2 and ponies for 5).

    CCG Limtied Competition

    The new releease is out, and although this isnt a pre-release (that is expected in preston 1st dec) we do have promo support for a limited competition along the same lines as a pre-release (price to be confirmed on the day) along with a fun game for those who dont like the ccg or dont want to pay for getting cards

    Shop with ponies

    ok most of the pony merch in preston is now probably sold at our venue, but we do have some other shops if anyone wants to pop out and get stuff for christmas

    Plush Con.

    Bring your plushes, see if they can enjoy being part of the celebrations!

    Hello! I will be there all going well. How will your Secret Santa work? Are we getting gifts for specific ponies or just selecting randomly on the day?

    Should be awesome anyway. As @CrikeyoRilley will tell you, choice is a tricky thing.

    I'll have to see what I can make for the secret santa...

    severalof the group are from cumbria, we also get ponies from london and scotland attending. So yes pop on down. also note the virgin festive train fares! they hide them on many sites, but look for returns and you should find them

    Hope every pony is ready for 2moro! i cant wait. we got events planned! Remember ponies bring a wrapped gift for the secret santa! keep the price lowish in the £5 to £10 range. I have a few suprises awaiting you all!

    for ponies driving. note the market stree tcarpark is cheap in preston, along with the christian road one. Also if you park in the butler street carparks (station or fishergate) you need to exit left - as fines are inplace for cars going right.

    Me and @Cloudane will be there ^^ unfortunately being a stealthy brony mean I'll have to give the secret santa a miss. A bit unfair to keep asking him to look after my pony contraband, ponies may think he's an AJ fan :p

    Don't forget the priorities have changed, traffic down Fishergate and Corporation Street now gives way to Butler Street (this is supposedly to avoid excessive delays to rail replacement buses).
