The meet was awesome: professional, organized, fun, and full of ponies! We consider ourselves shy people, so we were afraid we would feel uncomfortable, but we didn't at all. We were welcomed and everyone was friendly, and at the same time we were never put on the spot or pressured to participate in anything. Everyone was kind to each other, and we felt like we were among friends. It was a neat experience, and I'd recommend it to even the shy folks!
So glad I was able to attend the meet. It is a great venue with great people. The games planned were fun and the setting with the outdoor tent was very nice. Thanks to Jewel and everyone else who made this meet a reality!
I have many fond memories of my time at the MD MLP Meet.It is the first pony meet I've ever attended and the first time I was able to meet other collectors in person. For that alone, the MD MLP Meet will always have such a warm spot in my heart. But the MD Meet is more than just nostalgic fancies. It's a place that I've been able to create and build years-long friendships. I come knowing the atmosphere is welcoming and always entertaining. Shenanigans and crazy misadventures had. Good food, good folks, good times.
I have been attending Jewel's pony meets since 2003. I can't tell you how excited I was to meet *in Person* other MLP collectors like myself! Every meet has been wonderful. It's a day full of ponies, talking, eating and playing games. I highly recommend attending to anyone who collects ponies, it will be well worth it!
Hello everyone! My first meet was in 2005 and I've been coming back every year since then. Jewel throws a fantastic pony meet with lots to do and plenty of ponies to buy and trade. I can't wait to come this year!
I started attending Jewel's Pony Meets between 2003-2004. I was literally amazed at all the friendly people I've meet over the years attending. There has always been so much fun wrapped into one day that it could span as much as a convention if it wanted to. Good food, fun games, and laughter are always found in the Meets. From custom contests to scooter races and even the infamous pinata bashing there's always fun to be experienced. Finally there is trading and buying of ponies which brings everyone together as one big family. I'm so happy to have experienced this event and hopefully even in my move, look forward to attending once again in the future.
We attended the MD meet last year, and had a most wonderful time! Everyone was friendly, the events planned kept things moving along and *fun*, the atmosphere was relaxed, and there was so much Pony Joy. And at the time, I wasn't even a collector--just along for the ride with my kid, who is! But this year I'll be there with ponies of my own to show off. :)
I have had the honor of attending the MD pony meets for 4 years now. I have been fortunate enough to have gone to several meets around the country and I have to say nothing compares to Jewels MD meet. All meets are great fun but Jewel takes it to a whole new level. Beautiful home, beautiful and friendly family, amazing friends who volunteer to be "event staff", food, games,prizes, raffles, piniata,live auction with real auctioneer the list goes on and on and every year another special event gets added. Where do we find the time? There isn't a dull moment all day. You would think it would be chaos with so many people but the day goes so smoothly and far too quickly! Many collector's I have met at the meet have become friends I keep in contact throughout the year. My daughter, who I collect with, loves how the adults treat her with respect just as if she were an adult, she never feels ignored or spoken down to. She is never swindled or left out. Everyone looks out for each other and their ponies.
I love the MD meets that Jewel holds each year. She is the most wonderful host! It’s a wonderful time full of wonderful people, MLP's & great food. It's a very friendly atmosphere & we all have lots & lots of fun! This has got to be one of the best pony meets around, hands down!
The 09' meet was my very first meet! I had such a great time!!!! Everyone was so friendly, and there were tons of ponies and other items for sale. All the activities were so much fun. The food was delicious, and I was happy to contribute some cupcakes too. I will definitely be going again next year
I have been attending the MD meet since 2003! *wow* and It has done nothing but get better and bigger each year. Folks come from all over the country! I have made tons of money selling stuff and spent tons finding those elusive ponies! Rares and Commons alike can be found. There is something truly special about getting to meet other collectors in person and that makes it such a great experience! I am not as big of a collector as I once was...but I will always attend the MD meets to see new friends and fall in love with the plastic all over again!
2009 was my first MD Pony Meet and it was a lot of fun. What is better than spending a pony filled day with like minded people? We had games, food, and PONIES! Jewel runs a fantastic meet and I plan to be there next year!
Another wonderful pony meet! I started coming to Jewel's Pony Meet with my daughter in 2008. This year, Anita couldn't come, so I brought my husband Jerry and we both had a ball. The big tent, the great new games, and of course all the wonderful pony people make Jewel's party the best!
This meet was SO much fun. I really enjoyed the hospitality, the people, the events, and of course, the ponies! I am so excited for the next one!
