    When will the next Worcester meet occur? I'm considering moving from Staffordshire to Worcestershire (Either Bromsgrove or Worcester) by next year as I renew my tenancy for the flat every October and April and these Worcester meets might be the opportunity to check out the city I might be living at next year.

    While it's reasonably quiet in here... I'm intending to do a little bit of promotion for the Worcester meets in a few places online, and one of those is Fimfiction. The snag is that the way blog posts there are displayed means that only a few lines are seen "above the fold" and you have to actively click past the break to see more. Therefore, I'm trying to work out a way of summarising what we do in a few lines.

    I think the key things about our meet that people need to know are:
    • Dates ("twice-monthly" is probably good enough for a summary)
    • Location, including postcode and route from the station
    • The fact that it's fine to bring pony shirts, plushies etc
    • Our SFW nature -- including asking people not to swear
    • No charge to attend (though preferably buy a coffee or something)
    Anything else? All suggestions gratefully received, with the reminder that (because of that display thing I mentioned) very detailed stuff isn't going to fit. :)

    It's probably worth mentioning the times too; we're normally started by 1 and finished about 5, but people are free to come and go during that period. :)

    I don't have experience of other meets but I've gathered from you lot that what actually happens during the meet can vary somewhat; so maybe a brief description of what we do, e.g. talk about both Pony and other stuff and play cards or other games

    Yeah, I'll change "Dates" above to "Dates and times". That should work. I like the idea of mentioning that we're not fussy about when people come and go, either, since that laid-backness is something I think will appeal to many people. :)
    That's true. We're deliberately largely a chat meet, rather than a "go out to places meet", and of course there's the all-important Chase the Ace -- can't neglect that!

    And now I'm even less sure how to fit this into one small post. :p It's not quite as tricky as trying to explain when I'm tweeting about upcoming meets, but it's close!

    I'll be missing this week's meet unfortunately, as I'll be spending the day at the Severn Valley Railway gala. @Somerset Cider I don't know if you're interested in meeting up there?

    @Pigasus I'll get motorised piggy back to you at a future meet, I promise!

    Enjoy the grand galloping gala! Hopefully see you next time

    Just give the piggy a road map and put it on the nearest road, I'm sure it'll get home eventually [email protected]:

    Thanks! Haha, it might take it a little while to walk from Derby.

    OK no worries, have a great holiday!

    Who's up for the meet this weekend? It looks like the numbers might be rather low

    I'll have to see. Currently trying to ward off this illness that seems to have infected everyone at work. I'll give you an update though closer to the time!

    I'm hoping to come on Saturday but it depends on how much pain my ribs are giving me. Hurt them over the weekend and I've been off work all this week.
