This location was great for hosting a meetup! And the party itself was pretty good, too. I'm actually kind of surprised that I was too busy talking to people to play a game of Ponopoly!People brought some great food, too. Huge thanks to whoever brought the ham!

\------ Traffic Warning! -------/
I'm looking at a traffic map currently and many roads heading in the downtown direction are labeled red. Longest red streak is along HWY 26 starting at 217.
Travel safely, everyone!
Thank goodness I'm already downtown.
A bit of constructive feedback to the organizers for any future events they may host. Please try to place any important information in the meetup's description, such as expectations and guidelines for those attending as well as the full nature of the meetup. I also, personally, find it a good idea to be straight forward if something pony specific being held by the brony community, or just a general event we plan to attent as a group.
This kind of information should be presented as soon as possible and where everyone can see it when they sign up, rather than bits of information disseminated using the conversation feature. The descriotion can always be edited as necessary if things change.
The reason I commented, rather then update is becuase I'm on my phone. Sometime information pops up at the last minute
Please mark your gifts pony or nob pony for our nob brony guests.

Okay, so me and my brother are bringing gifts for the gift exchange, and cheese spread and crackers. :)

Anyone else bringing good?
I can bring stuff that i dont need to keep in a fridge... so maybe chips and soda?
Do you have cups, plates, & plastic silverware already?
I put together a present & I'm going to be looking to see what I can bring as food. Possibly will pick up a platter from Winco.
I shall bring some gifts as well.
Yay, I can come!! And I'll also be bringing a gift with!

Can we bring more than one gift?
0 · December 15, 2013
Yes you can if you plan on bringing it just incase someone didn't bring one.
A couple things I'd like to add to this. This year, let's make it so gifts for certain people are not allowed to be put into the pile, and that somebody can't know what all the gifts are, so that they know exactly what to pick. Both happened last year.

Private gifts need to be separate from the White Elephant gifts. Also there is no reason why someone knows what all the gifts all.
0 · December 14, 2013
That's why I brought it up. Both happened last year.
What's the price limit for the gifts?
No price limit.
I ordered some Christmas gifts, but they might not get here until Christmas or after... So I don't have one to bring that I can think of.

I'm bringing a gift, and I'll try to bring some cookies as well, if I can find time to make some.
I see no reason I can't go.
I shall be bringing a gift.

I'm bringing a gift!

I plan on bringing a gift, and maybe food. Food might be difficult, as i'll be coming from work to this.
I do plan on bringing a gift for the exchange (not sure what, though), and I can definitely bring some food...I could make some cookies, or bring chips and dip, or crackers or something.

It's very important to know if you will be bringing food, and a present to the white elephant so I know if I have to bring extras of anything

White Elephant Gift Exchange Rules ( Same rules my family has played with for the last 15 plus years we have hosted parties) :
1. To receive a gift in the exchange, you must have bring a gift or have a gift brought for you. Some people are welcome to bring extra gifts for those who can't bring one.2. Gifts can only be stolen twice in which it becomes locked.3. Children can not have gifts stolen from them.4. The first person who gets to pick will also get one change to steal any gift at the end.5. Have fun.

These rule can change depending on if the party is hosted by the PSU group or Josh.
Potluck Rules:Please state if you plan on bringing plates, silver wear, napkins, drinks.
So what are the rules on the gift exchange this year? Last year it was a rule to not bring white elephants & everyone got something that was pretty cool. Also we had a stealing rule where a gift can be stolen like one or two times until it is where it will stay. My gift might sort of circle around the stealing idea, I won't say what it is or how exactly it does but I have been working on putting this together for quite a while knowing there probably was going to be another gift exchange this year.

Who brings white elephants? And Why would that even be a rule? I think it would be cool if you could find a white elephant.
I have a location for this. It will be at the college and I'm just waiting for the call back on the room for 40 people

I can tentatively sign myself up to host this. My capacity is 15, so if someone with a larger space can host post up in the comments and I can change the location.
