    Made it back all right, despite that cancelled Westbury train.* Thanks as usual to everyone who came along, especially for so kindly losing to me at Chase the Ace. ;) The Bolero lamb burger will be on my shortlist again if I'm feeling particularly hungry! Anyway, hope to see folks again in a fortnight. :)

    * Never did find out the reason, though GWR seems to have had a bit of an all-round mess this evening judging by Twitter!

    Thank you to the pegasi for arranging yesterday to be the one day when travel was easy! ;) As I look out of my window at 18 cm (seven inches) of snow on the ground, I can say that I certainly wouldn't have been getting to Worcester today! (Especially as I felt pretty ill in the early hours, though that's no longer the case.)

    Also of course, thank you to everyone who made it to the meet. Quite a festive atmosphere, which I certainly enjoyed -- even if @Ialyrn Aeloria did snipe me out of the Chase the Ace championship! :D You'll be pleased to know that I did eventually get Fluttershy back on her cord with no damage and she's now safely in her box.

    Hope to see as many people as can make it next time (13th Jan). A great Hearth's Warming to everyone! :)

    Good to see everyone today :). Great start to the year!

    I'm currently watching the BBC's 'Inside the Factory' program while eating dinner, and it's just started talking about Worcester sauce. Obviously.

    Thank you guys for today. After a somewhat eventful month it's been really nice to relax, chat and play cards.

    Sorry that the Robot Wars chat became tiresome at times for some of you. My enthusiasm for pony has actually been reignited considerably today, and now I'm much more hyped for season 8!

    Indeed, thank you to everyone who was there today. It was enjoyable. Always nice to relax a bit after a busy couple of weeks, and in my case to forget about dentists for a while! :)

    And @Oilyvalves -- I didn't actually find that stuff tiresome. I was actually quite interested in quite a bit of it. It's just that my lack of knowledge on the subject meant that after a while there just wasn't any more I felt able to contribute.

    Really enjoyed this one. A slightly larger turnout than sometimes thanks to welcome* newcomer @Cheese Sandwich, semi-regular @Oilyvalves and Worcester Irregular @vcgriffin all being able to make it -- great to see you all! :)

    * I don't mean that word in an Our Town way. Honest! :p

    I'm very glad you had a good time at our little subterranean gathering, @Cheese Sandwich, looking forward to seeing you at more. :)

    It was particularly interesting with the addition of a spontaneous (at least, "spontaneous for me because I'd kinda @Patrick Rowberry and I were going to do it") video filming.

    Haven't edited it into anything yet so I can't speak of it as a whole yet. From what I have checked, though, it's a little blurry and there's some visual noise but it seems to be good enough quality given the low lighting at the time.

    I reckon the content; back-and-forth interactions, comedy from it "absolutely, definitely, 100% *not* being a reshoot because the video didn't record first time", etc, will make up for anything like that.

    Come back any time! :)

    Yeah, we're strange like that, in that we're a pony meet where we mostly still talk about ponies. :D
