    I'm coming from the opposite direction but could come via Malvern to pick up your present if no-one else can @Pigasus. (Might make me a bit later though)

    When do you plan to set off? Let's wait until then to decide in case there's somepony closer

    I should get on with wrapping it up!

    @Pigasus Really sorry you're unwell. I hope you get better very soon! Good idea about the present that Patrick had; hopefully it'll work out.

    By pure chance, I do have the backup cards with me! I'd actually left home by the time you posted this morning, so it was just luck. But yes, the CtA game can go ahead. :)

    @Pigasus I've already set off but as long as I know by about 12.30 or so I'll know which way I need to go from the M5

    I'm feeling a bit better so I'm going to come to the meet for just a little while, between about 2:55-3:40. The timing for CtA would be rather tight so feel free to do that before I come, I will be able take part in the present exchange tho! I've let Culdee know

    One more week to go until the last meet of 2019! You can put me down as a probable -- it looks like the trains will be running normally, too. :)

    I'm planning on writing a fun little quiz for the occasion. Already got a few questions, though obviously I can't share them here! Not a big fancy thing like the UK PonyCon one or the quiz the Trottingham meet had today, just a few minutes of me reading out a few MLP-related questions from a bit of paper. I may even put up a really small and uninteresting prize. :p

    Of course, this won't stop us playing Chase the Ace. Some things are sacred! ;)

    I'm seeing family next weekend, so unfortunately won't be able to make the meet. Hope everyone has an excellent last one of the year. And I enjoy the bonus Logan quiz! :)

    I am only a possible at this time due to transport issues. Car's been written off and the van is a pain to park in town.

    Wasn't even in it. Parked out side Ursa and Ialyn's place after last meet, some delightful bod slammed into it and then did a runner.

    And it looks as though we can add a @Dodj to the cast list for Saturday. :)



    I haven't forgotten about that little quiz! Will be nice to have a few hours away from the real world, as it always is. We may be a long way from Equestria, but sometimes I feel (in a slightly sappy way, admittedly) that these meets make the boundary between the worlds just a little bit thinner. :)

    Just passing on that @Ursa may be able to come tomorrow. I think he counts as a possible.

    I've been asked to post the trivia quiz from yesterday for the benefit of folks who couldn't make it but might want to have a go. The winner with a fine score of 20 out of (I think) 26 was @CuldeeFell -- but of course thank you very much to everyone for taking part! I know we had to rush it a little bit owing to the large attendance meaning Chase the Ace took a while, but I hope you enjoyed this quiz. I did, and I wouldn't mind doing something similar again in the future. :)
