    This is definitely something I've been graving to do.
    I'm a Pony music newb--where is the backstage? How long do you think the class could run?

    Right now, it'll be tough for me to make it this week--GA at 2p and especially with the Crosser of Roads run at 5. Gotta eat dinner before that starts! That reminds me...we're out of snacks here.
    Club Éclair-Second Servings members are at 38 trainings or below.
    I can't fit all my Tortoise Stone Bearers in my sig anymore.
    Our 9th Annual Month a' the Chicken on Landy is in August. PM me if you want to get involved.

    If I had to guess, it is the back stage in the common-room with the hobbit minstrel on the stage, very close to the bard.

    Thank you for choosing a time-slot that is not in NA prime-time, Forte, I think that time will work perfectly for a high traffic area. Greatly appreciated

    The reason that this is confusing is that, in common parlance, every part of the Pony other than the space in front of the bar is called "the back" by someone. There's "the back" over by the barber, "the back" by Uchdrud, "the back" you're referring to, and "the back" that refers to pretty much all of the areas reached down the various halls. Sometimes while sitting in the Pony listening to the RP I count how many people pose about going to "the back" within the space of an hour, and don't end up anywhere near one another, just to pass the time.
