MD Pony Meet Rules & Regulations
The Maryland Pony Meet staff goes to great lengths to see that every precaution is taken to ensure the safest and most comfortable environment possible. While the staff does its utmost to ensure this trend continues, both the staff and the hostess cannot be held responsible, legally or otherwise, for the actions of a meet attendee, be they collector or guest, or any other events which may unfold during the course of the meet. In the event that something undesirable occurs, we will do our best to rectify the problem and ensure a just and fair result follows, but cannot be held responsible for persons or their property. Participants attend at their own risk.
Selling, Buying, & Trading: Every transaction is expected to be fulfilled as fairly and peaceably as possible on the parts of both sellers and buyers. Sellers set their own prices and reserve the right to accept or decline an offer. Stealing or scamming is absolutely prohibited. Anyone partaking in illegal or unjust activity will be expelled from the meet and disallowed to return to future meets. The person(s) will also be reported to the online collecting communities, and/or local law enforcement if necessary.
Congeniality: All attendees are expected to treat each other with courtesy and respect. Harassing, pressuring, or bullying a fellow attendee will not be tolerated, and will result in the expulsion and banning of that individual from future meets. Hate speech or prejudiced behavior is not allowed. The MDPM is a LGBTQ+ safe space.
Show & Tell: Much of the meet is about sharing. If you have items you would prefer others only look at and not touch, either label them with a sign, or bring something like a plastic case to display them in.
Children: The MD Pony Meet has agreed to be an event for collectors ages 18 and up only.
Pets: Pets are not allowed inside the venue as per our contract unless they are service animals.
Drugs or Alcohol: There is a zero tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol at the pony meets.
Smoking or vaping: is outside in the parking lot only, away from other collectors and merchandise. Please dispose of smoking products responsibly.
The MD Pony Meet is a private event intended exclusively for a tightly-knit and long established community of collectors of My Little Pony products. The MD Pony Meet Committee reserves the right to deny any applicant at any time, for any reason. Rules and Regulations are also subject to change as the need becomes apparent. The MD Pony Meet is in no way related to or endorsed by Hasbro, Inc. and operates as a volunteer not-profit annual event.
