    "Ax gets it made early" Edition!

    So for next month, we're looking at either the fifteenth or the twenty-second. As usual, we'll be meeting in Cardiff Central train station at eleven o' clock in the morning, and hanging around there waiting for late arrivals until twelve noon or quarter to twelve, depending on whether everyone we're expecting has turned up or not. If you can be there, and want to be there, please post below and state which date you'd rather meet up on, as well as suggesting any activities you'd like to do on the day.
    The usual plan is that we go to a local bar, Bar Icon, and sit around chatting about colourful marshmallow equines and whatever else we happen to be thinking of at the time, but if you can think of something more exciting than discussing Fluttershy's Favourite Flavour Milkshake or who Rarity's Next One-Episode Fling will be over a pint of pepsi, please, throw it in the comments below! Seriously. Please do.

    So to Recap!
    • 15/09/13 or 22/09/13
    • Meeting at 11:00am, Cardiff Central Station
    • Waiting there until 11:45 to 12:00
    • Going to Bar Icon
    • More exciting things that you can suggest!

    I can't help but wonder if people just haven't seen the thread, like me last time. If enough of us have Facebook maybe a group might work better? (Merely a suggestion of course)

    Not as such, though we do tend to end up at Bar Icon, which is, obviously, a bar. During the day there's no age limit, though, and we tend to all head home by about six, so age shouldn't be an issue.

    I never noticed that, but yes, you're right. Aren't these meets normally held on Saturdays, though?

    Bonus news for those of you available next weekend - there's a Con!
    This is a multi-generation con that's been going on for the last ten years, and this year it's in Cardiff. Fifteen quid for one day is more than reasonable, I think, so I'll probably be going on the Saturday if I go.

    Oh yeah, I remember hearing about that. I was planning on going, and I didn't realise that the dates for this meet and PonyCon coincided. Should be a good chance to meet Cardiff bronies that aren't on this site.

    They don't actually coincide as of yet, but I think it might be best to make our meet the 21st intead of the 14th - give the wallets of those who go to the con some time to recover!

    I'm starting at the University of South Wales (Glamorgan) this year, so I'll hopefully be able to turn up at this meet, however I can only make the weekend of the 21st-22nd as I'm not moving into halls until the end of the week before this. Probably going to the con though, likely Sunday only. My bank account didn't know what hit it last weekend though so can't spend too much...;)

    The 14th clashes with a Bristol meetup.
    So I'm voting 21st

    Three votes for the 21st so far, and none for the 14th - looks like it'll be the 21st so far!

    21st sounds good to me, I'm free both days so I really don't mind when it is.
