    Successful Meetups

    Boston Bronies

    Copy Paste:

    Over 40 guests from all across New England attended yesterday's Boston Bronies meetup for a Christmas party hosted at Dave & Buster's in Braintree MA. We watched the premiere of "Magic Duel," raffled off MLP-themed gifts to a few lucky guests, and even shared in a MLP-themed Christmas cake! We also collected food donations for a local food shelter just outside of Boston for needy families. After the party we concluded with gaming throughout the night and even ran into an employee at D&B who was a fan of the show. His nametag read "Sonic Rainboom."

    International Meetup in Austria

    Copy Paste:

    We're bronies from Hungary, and yesterday (December 2nd) we had an awesome meetup in Vienna, Austria. With the help of the Austrian bronies, we had a lot of fun, visited beautiful places in the city, and of course we got to know each other. This was our first meetup outside of our country, and even though a lot of us went to Vienna before, we asked our Austrian bros to help in planning the day. I also want to thank them for the navigation in the city, we would've been probably lost without them. Our bus arrived to Vienna in the morning, we walked in the Prater, went to the Hundertwasserhaus, the Stephansdom cathedral, the Hofburg Palace (unfortunately we were too broke and short on time, to go in), and we went two the Christmas Market at the Town Hall in the evening. We had a great time, we enjoyed the trip and we were really happy to meet bronies from other countries. We also made a dozen group photos :D

    Library Meetup

    Copy Paste:

    The Puyallup Public Library has lots of bronies visiting every day, so to celebrate, we're going to have a program all about MLP:FiM. Teens (ages 13+) can enjoy pony-related crafts, snacks, and games and share their favorite mashups. All teens are welcome, from the most knowledgeable brony to those who are curious what the fuss is all about. We’ll also be giving away prizes for the best costumes. Registration is strongly suggested - call the reference desk (253.841.5454) or email Young Adult Librarian Bonnie Svitavsky at bsvitavsky@ci.puyallup.wa.us.
