The association has only a few people, but it would be a mistake to think that we do all the work ourselves – dozens of other people are directly or indirectly involved in organizing larger events, and we thank them for their help because without them no bigger meetup would be possible!

Council and members of the association
Representation before the authorities, deciding on deadlines and finances, paperwork, and constant study of regulations and rules around. The primary purpose of the association is to ensure everything on the formal and organizational side, so we can work together and with the help of others do what we really want to achieve.
All members of the Council swear an oath to the book Elements of Harmony to the best of their knowledge and conscience. They could choose the character of the ruler from MLP: FiM, who is supposed to help them in this task 🙂 but according to the current situation, we are still waiting for the first in-person meeting.
