    it is confirmed for the 21st. the comments i had from mareseyside made clear no one from there wanted to travel outside of liverpool and every date i picked clashes with somepony, so had to pick one :) will post details soon - but planning around getting my buck legacy deck out for a trail run, plus drinks etc and yes i have booked dice and donuts again.

    The Mareseyside ponies won't travel an hour to Preston? Well that's their loss! :p

    At what sort of time would the meet-up begin? My last train home is around half eight, so the earlier the better to make the most of it! A friend of mine is interested and may be coming as well.

    Sounds good to me.

    Perhaps we were just lucky, but last time the Old Vic had a lot more free space than The Station inn.

    If I happen to tag along may I be so bold as to ask if they're accessible? (sorry to be a bother)

    got more detail on your requirements? as term accessible can mean many things. dice and donuts is a ground floor venue but has a slight ridge outside. so technically for wheelchairs on your own no, with someone to give a genetal push yes it is. But the toilets are upstairs. This inst a major problem due to the station being 30 yards away (with plenty of toilets) and the pub next door having a ground stairs toilet. Over the old vic... erh thats and old pub but i have checked and is accessible for most people

    I'll be with someone if I go, yeah I'm a wheelchair user. It's more about if they had accessible toilets really (which you've answered :p )

    bit of a shame they not got a groundfloor toilet- but also forgot to mention 20 yards away is the fishergate centre which has the accessible toilets as well and is open when we are there.

    take a look here to see options. dice and donuts is marked. along with old vic. and the station/fishergate. you can see inside fishergate for the toilets https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place...491d620a795a04f7!8m2!3d53.756878!4d-2.7053887

    Fishergate is literally next door, so I can't see it being much trauma to pop out now and again

    Just a heads up (mostly for @MCtoastie ) I can't easily set things in stone at the moment due to family issues. Everything is highly uncertain at the moment but so far it looks set to be a tough month. Just have to see how things go...

    some planning news here, (post the great trump game, tails of equestria and also the remember me thsi weekend)

    Due to the new release of the my little pony collectable card game - i'm considering holding the next event on the 17th june as an official pre release of that set, with competition prizes. then holding a general meet in july followed by a break till december to allow ponies to attend various meets.

    17th June theme: mlp ccg - with competition!. plus for those not into the ccg game - the MLP top trumps game with a prize and "remember me" casual play.

    22nd July Theme: mlp monopoly, mlp game of life plus tails of equestria

    feel free to message me with what you think of the plans
