• July / June Brony Meetups!

    I know I used it already! But I love this Lyra!

    I'm going to turn these posts into a monthly occurrence, and update them as I get more emails. If you are at all interested in meeting other bronies, check back on this!  It will be in the event section of the sidebar.  I won't be bumping it, so its up to you to scan it every once in a while!

    There are two massive meet-ups planned (Listed first), both found at the top, one on each coast of the USA.  

    Do you want your event posted here?  Include the following:
    • Date
    • Contact Information/Website/Meetup.com
    • Location
    • Day
    • Information on it that I can copy paste in, make sure it looks professional! 
    • Use the ones below as templates/Examples.
    • MEETUP as the subject line of the email so I can put it in queue to update later. 
    All meetups after the break!


    Event #1: New York City, Business Conference Centre in Midtown: Saturday, June 25th.
     (Copypaste provided by Purple Tinker)

    Last month's Bronies-NYC meetup went EXTREMELY well, despite some problems with the originally planned venue. Over 30 bronies showed up, and those who were unable to make it deeply regretted it. All agreed it was the BEST NIGHT EVAR. (11 meetup reviews, 5-star average!)


    Well, ANOTHER Bronies-NYC meetup is coming up on Saturday, June 25, and if you miss THIS one, you will REALLY be kicking yourself.

    This meetup is slowly starting to morph into a mini-convention (BroNYCon?). Some facts:

    •  Over 30 ponies are ALREADY registered-- and the event is already three weeks away.
    •  A room has been reserved at a business conference centre in midtown for FIVE STRAIGHT HOURS; the room can hold up to 65! And some sneak previews of what is planned (though there will be lots of Tinker's patented SOOPAR SEEKRIT meeting surprises-- none of which you will want to miss):
    •  The room is equipped with an LCD projector and a screen, on which there will be PONIES shown and VIDEO GAMES played. (The infamous Rainbow Dash arcade stick will make another appearance.)
    •  There will be a computer corner with four workstations with Internet access.
    •  There will be merch: t-shirts for sale (multiple varieties, men's and women's styles) as well as some spare (and rare) ponies.
    •  There will be raffles, drawings, giveaway schwag, and games with fabulous prizes!
    •  There will be a pony modding/rehairing demo.

    Sounds like your cup of tea? Can you make it to NYC on June 25? Trust us... you won't want to miss this. Last month's meet was absolutely amazing. This one is going to blow it away.



    Event #2: Portland, Oregon: Saturday-Sunday, July 30-31st. 
    (Copypaste Provided by Bejoty)

    Date: June 17, 18

    Days: Friday, Saturday

    Time: ~1:00 PM

    Event #5 Monday, July 4th at 12pm outside the West Hall Lobby. The Anime Expo Brony Meet-Up!


     If need be we can move the meet-up to a different location in case non-ticket bronies wish to get in.

    You can reach me at : darth_pinkerton@hotmail.com

    The meet-up thread is here: http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=243167

    This isn’t exactly an official SoCal meet-up seeing as it’s a bit inconvenient for those who aren’t going to Anime Expo. It’s just a small gathering of sorts for those who plan to attend the convention.

    We already have 10+ folks who for sure are going to the meet-up

    Many of us are going to be in costume as some of the ponies and we’ll have a photoshoot with those folks and with the whole gathering.

    I will be going as Pinkie Pie and I’ll be bringing along a Rairty, Rainbow Dash, and a few others.

    You don’t need to dress up; it’s just a fun little extra for some of us and a great way to show how much we love the ponies.

    Aside from that, we’ll have pony tunes playing AND maybe a sing-a-long or two if we can get it going. We also plan on bringing cupcakes and other sweets.

    This will be just like your typical expo meet-up except 20% cooler and a way to test the water for a potential SoCal meet-up outside a convention.

    Event #6 Sioux Falls, SD at Dark Matter Anime at 2601 S. Minnesota Ave. Suite 103 

    July 3rd from 11am to 11pm cake, ice cream, raffle for prizes, live online chat and pony Jeopardy for some pony figs @ www.stickam.com/icarus2152 from the store! Watch PonyChat every Monday until then for your chance to be one of the qualifying contestants... Show discussion, popcorn, pinatas, we're aiming for a full blown Pinkie Pie Party over here! You gotta post us! Commercials following!

    Event #7 Anime Kaigi du Bois Center (NAU) - Flagstaff, AZ

    This is a meetup, kind of, but it's happening as a panel. Bronies are welcome to meet before and/or after the panel.


    Date:
    Sunday, July 17, 12am-1am

    Contact Information/Website/Meetup.com:
    NinjaTalesBrony@gmail.com, http://animekaigi.com

    Location:
    Anime Kaigi
    du Bois Center (NAU) - Flagstaff, AZ

    Information:
    Hello bronies!
    There will be a panel at Anime Kaigi entitled 'Bronies After Dark'. This will be a panel/meet-up. We're going to have discussion, maybe some trivia, and probably watch Winter Wrap Up (on a projector screen). This panel will be open to children attending the convention as well, so it will be borderline PG/PG-13 (aka no discussion of clopfics during the panel). You WILL need to purchase a convention pass for at least Saturday in order to be able to attend this panel. (However, if you volunteer to work for 20 hours during the entire convention, you can get a free convention pass.) The panel is on the Saturday schedule, but actually occurs very early Sunday morning. Currently the panel is not on the site yet. So if there are any Arizona bronies, come on out to Anime Kaigi and the brony panel. You can find out more information about the convention at http://animekaigi.com, and more information about the panel by emailing NinjaTalesBrony@gmail.com.

    Event #8 The Prancing Skiltaire (our house) 13412 Gilbert St., Garden Grove, CA 92844-2346


    Time: Saturday, June 11 (and the Second Saturday of each month, unless otherwise
    noted) 4 PM to 10 PM

    What happens: Lots of artists, lots of geeky films and videos
    (including MLP FiM), costumers, food and drinks (no alcohol), a
    backyard DJ, and we take over the local In-N-Out Burger patio for a time...

    Bronies (and everyone else) Welcome!

    Event #9 Centennial, Colorado. Koelbel Public Library Meeting rooms A&B. (5955 South Holly Street, Centennial, CO 80121)

    What: A very casual Meet-Up combined with a marathon of all 26 Season 1 episodes.
    Date: Tuesday, July 5, 2011
    Time: 9:30AM - 9:00PM

    Info:
           All 26 episodes combined is approximately 10 hours, so I have reserved both meeting rooms at Koelbel Library reserved for the whole library day. The projector in the front will be playing all 26 episodes of the 1st Season of FiM with sets of chairs. The back of the room will be open for snacks, drinks, meeting others, and chatting.
           I will do some announcements and the marathon will officially start at 10:00am. I will be needing to keep a headcount of everypony, as there is a Maximum Capacity, so please try to RSVP. I highly doubt we will reach over 180, but if we do, I will work something out. As for food, I will bring basic snacks and drinks, so I recommend eating a decent breakfast before this. Halfway through the episodes (or around lunchtime), we'll take a break for about 45 minutes and you can go and get some lunch. Across the street is Panera Bread, King Soopers, etc. Feel free to bring a lunch! As much as I'd love to provide lunch, funds provide insufficient.

    10-11 hours is a long time, so you are welcome to leave and come back at anytime! The casual come whenever, leave whenever rule.


    Anypony and anybody interested in the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is welcome; including those who want to know what all the fuss is about! So mark those calendars and come join us for a great time!

    Event#11  Location: Lincoln Park area of Chicago, IL
    Date: 7/24/2011


    Day: Sunday

    Info:
    Chicago has gone long enough without a meet-up to call its own! On Sunday, July 24th, bronies will descend upon Lincoln Park, hitting up the FREE Lincoln Park Zoo, the Nature Museum ($9.00 admission), and participating in the consumption of many many cupcakes!!

    The way these activities were decided upon was the current attendees voted on their favourite mane cast members, and we picked out things the 2 who got the most votes would enjoy. Our winners were Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy!

    It's going to be an absolutely fantastic experience, and relatively cheap too! (Assuming, you know, you don't eat too many cupcakes, :P). We can't wait to see you there!


    P.S.
    The facebook page is where we will be coordinating all of this, so you might want to RSVP there to get updates on the times, as they are sure to change as the date draws nearer. See you there!

    Please visit the ponychan link for more details and for important updates on the event (Also feel free to leave any suggestions or email me personally at bacon.brony@gmail.com)

    Hey, DC metro area bronies! Come and hang out with other local bronies at a casual meetup. We'll talk about ponies, show off swag, and optionally sing pony songs.

    1. This is so cool. Officially bookmarked.

    2. I would really love to go to NYC's brony meetup since it'll be like a birthday present (My 16th birthday is the day after the meetup), but I'm too shy IRL to actually go through with it. Even though I'm 20 minutes away from NYC (In North NJ), I could probably get there by Port Authority.

      ReplyDelete
    3. Will definitley keep an eye for that!
      My scheduele at the moment won't let me organize one, but if anybody's willing to do something in the San Francisco Bay Area it would be amazing!

    22. @Andrew
      Northern Ohioan here. I'd love it.

      We could probably even coerce the Columbus-area folks to travel a bit north if we held something around Akron.

      ReplyDelete

      ReplyDelete
    36. Guys, c'mon! Southern California, I beg you! I'd set it up myself if I could, but I can't.

      ReplyDelete
    37. Well, AX (Anime Expo, Los Angeles) is coming up on July 1-4, which would be a logical location for a Brony Meetup. I would orchestrate/organize such a thing, but I still don't know if I can make it to AX or not (and much less for the whole time; I've only ever gone for one full day the past three years...).

      That, and I currently don't have the networking resources for it. Now, obviously that could be fixed by an influx of emails and negotiations from other SoCal Bronies... but I'm just not sure. I'm in a holding pattern for a yes/no hiring decision right now, and if I get hired I may not be there at all... which would be a bummer.

      ReplyDelete
    38. It's too bad I don't have the means to go, otherwise I'd be at the Texas meetup.

      ReplyDelete
    39. I want to be there but I live in Poland : ( So I can only join to brony movie night : ( It's sad because in Poland we don't have any meetings like that. But I think when the MLP will be more popular in Poland and then some people maybe will organise brony meeting.

      ReplyDelete
    40. I would love to go to the meet up in NYC, but i'm stuck here in the UK. :( Fingers crossed someone might organise a UK meet up sometime.

    60. We need a DC one. I'd be there in a hoofbeat.

      ReplyDelete
    61. There was one today at What The Fur in Montreal. It was a "panel" about MLP:FIM. About ten people in the room were bronies, and five or ten more people showed up out of curiosity. No one cosplayed or was wearing a cast member color scheme, so nothing worth taking pictures of.

      ReplyDelete
    62. All you DC bronies should carpool up to NYC! It's not much of a drive, and you can totally stay over.

    64. I would drive to NYC, but I'm staring down a 5 hour drive under peak conditions. It's possible, but boy will that be a long drive.

      ReplyDelete
    65. Well, you'd have a berth here, and a place to park. Just let me know. This is going to be one for the brony history books. The awesome will be so thick on the ground, you'll have to wear galoshes on all four hooves.

      ReplyDelete
    66. Now that I think about it some more, I think I'll try to make it to the NYC one. Just gotta request off from work, sign me up.

    72. I was part of the original group of ponies who formed the first triumvirate of bronies meetup groups (NYC, SeaTac, Portland). Sounds like there is interest in forming additional groups in Chicago, California, Florida and Texas.

      If you wish to begin the process of creating such groups, email me-- prpltnkr@gmail.com. Be aware that it does cost money, and more importantly it does cost TIME, but I can provide tips to save you a little money on meetup fees, at least. :)

      It sucks to live on the other side of the world.
      Suomibroneja täälläpäin?

    82. No other English bronies. Feels bad, man...

      ReplyDelete
    83. Needs more AZ stuff... couldn't go to comicon.

    84. I wouldn't mind a brony meetup around the DC Metro area. easy access for the DC bronies and the bronies around DC.

      ReplyDelete
    85. We actually have at least one DC-area brony coming to our NYC meetup! :)

    88. NY brony here: just wondering if there will be a meetup next month (July or August) around NYC. I will be at Anthrocon during the June 25th meetup.

      Hey Cyl,

      I'm a brony, and I'm going to AC 2011.

      Y'all can find me on FA as Aldebaron, but my fursona is Artifice the coyote.

      Reply back and we can meet up at the con, I was hoping to meet some bronies out there!

      *So Awesome*

    90. There's a NY meet on the International Day of Friendship, July 30 :)

      ReplyDelete
    91. FFFFUUUUUUUUUUU-

      There is a Tampa meet up and I will not be around!

      ReplyDelete
    92. So what time does the June meetup actually begin? And how do I register?

      ReplyDelete
    93. The June BroNYCon (which has 62 RSVPs already and room for more!!!) begins at noon on Saturday, June 25. You can register at www.meetup.com/Bronies-NYC

      ReplyDelete
    94. Will I still be able to come a little bit later? I have something until 3:30 that day.

      ReplyDelete
    95. The grand finale in the convention centre begins at 3:30. If you can cut out of your earlier appointment a little earlier so that you can ARRIVE by 3:30, you'll manage to make most of the fun. :)

      After the time in the convention centre, there will be three hours in Madison Square Park on the lawn, followed by a smaller afterparty (18+ only) at my place.

      ReplyDelete
    96. METROCON. TAMPA, FLORIDA. FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. FRONT ENTRANCE. 1PM. BE THERE.

      ReplyDelete
    97. I never thought I would see something for South Dakota! Unbelievable! Not only am I just an hour away, I enjoy going to Dark Matter Anime! So going to be there!

      ReplyDelete
    98. @Anonymous

      You can count me to make that 3 of us so far. Yeah Front Range Bronies! I'm hoping to find more so my meet-up can be a success.

      ReplyDelete
    99. Am totally looking forward to the Portland, OR meetup. Anypony in the Bakersfield, CA area wanting to carpool should hit me up at hamsterdoom360@gmail.com.

      ReplyDelete
    100. Assuming I don't have anything else going on that day, I'll most likely go to the Denver area meetup, at least for a little bit (probably not the entire 10-11 hours). Perhaps I will bring drawing supplies, since people tend to like my ponies.

      ReplyDelete
    101. Hah, so I just checked where the Denver area meetup actually is, and it's only 16 minutes from where I live. I'll definitely stop by at some point.

      ReplyDelete
    102. Hopefully I'll uncover some more local bronies to invite in. Coltorado bronies sure are hard to find!

      @Atlur
      Great! I'll see you there!

      *cough* With me that makes 4 DC metro area bronies interested in a DC meetup. We can totally drag some more out of the woodwork and start having meetups.

      For example, I know like 4 more bronies near me who could probably be convinced to come...

      No idea how to arrange to host one, though. :c

      ReplyDelete
    104. DC bronies can ride the train to our NYC meetup on the 25th :D

    107. Since everyone is doing it, are there any New Orleans bronies.

      ReplyDelete
    108. Dammit. I would totally go to Centennial, but I work that day, so I probably won't show.

      ReplyDelete
    109. If June 12 hadn't already happened, I probably could have gone to the one in Dallas.

      WHY???

      ReplyDelete
    110. Come on Minnesotan bronies, we need a meet up. The River Centre, the Target Center, the Xcel Energy Center. The Twin Cities are LOADED with meeting spots.

    111. :O omigoshomigoshomigosh

      I didn't know about BroNYCon until today! Is it too late to register? Where would I do that? I reaaallly want to know ;~;

      ReplyDelete
    112. Hii! It isn't too late to register for BroNYCon! Just go to www.meetup.com/Bronies-NYC :) You can even pay at the door, it's just that if you do, food is not guaranteed. (The catering order goes in Wed) --PT

      ReplyDelete
    113. at the Q&A, someone ask about Applejack's parents!

      ReplyDelete
    114. Arriving in New York on Sunday for a camp at Stony Brook. Could possibly make the July one though.

      ReplyDelete
    115. So what time is the BroNYCon, and how much does it cost to get in? Is there even space left?

      ReplyDelete
    116. BroNYCon starts at noon and goes on 'til 5 PM in the conference centre, then probably another few hours hanging out in a public space (either a park or an indoor public space in event of rain). It's $15 with no meal and no raffle tickets, or $25 with a meal and raffle tickets. There is space left, but if you register after tonight, meal tickets aren't guaranteed. If you are interested, go to http://www.meetup.com/Bronies-NYC and sign up.

      ReplyDelete
    117. And is there an age limit? Because I'm 16 and would rather not get kicked out after paying for being under age.

      ReplyDelete
    118. There is no age limit for the con, just for the afterparty.

      ReplyDelete
    119. YES!
      i'm totally going to Vaughn!

      ReplyDelete
    120. Ah, so jealous, why aren't there any organized events in the uk. I'm in bloody brighton and there's not a single brony for miles as far as I know :( *sigh* one day, one day... :3

    125. blah. everythings to far from where i live to get to. if anyone wanted to set up a four-corners area meet up though, thats close enough.

      ReplyDelete
    126. A big post is coming soon, but if you can attend one con this year, make it BroNYCon September, or possibly BroNYCon December! Both are located in beautiful Manehattan. See/join http://www.meetup.com/Bronies-NYC for more info!

      ReplyDelete
    127. if this stuff is still big in 2 and a half years when im 18 im all in. until then...

    128. If someone sets up a get-together in the Seattle area, I am TOTALLY there. Come on guys, make it happen. :P

      ReplyDelete
    129. There IS a bronies meetup group in Seattle-Tacoma! http://www.meetup.com/Bronies-SeaTac

      ReplyDelete
    130. Um... If any Swedish people here reads this (In the Örebro area) Please email me at: filleg9001@hotmail.com if you'd like a get together. If anything goes down, we can do it on the next friday. (8th of July.) It'll be episode watching and snack eating/pizza eating whatnot. Now, I think that the possibility of this happening is like, 20 % lower then anything, but I might as well give it a chance. No need for me to post this as an official meetup though. Välkommen! :3

      ReplyDelete
    131. cool, I'm locally from LA; looking forward to seeing all you SoCal bronies at Anime Expo =)

      ReplyDelete
    132. Major cities still needing brony meetup groups include LA and Chicago... I've heard from ponies in both of these places, but there is no meetup group in either. Perhaps somepony in each city will step up to the plate and start the process of creating a Bronies meetup?

      If you think you may be that pony, email me-- prpltnkr@gmail.com. I've been there and done that (as I run the NYC meetups group), and I'd love to give you some tips.

    133. I'm thinking of going to the Chicago one but I just don't know...I'm a 13 year old female and I don't know how well the brony community would accept me. :S

      ReplyDelete
    134. In my experience, the brony community is quite accepting indeed.

      ReplyDelete
    135. @Purple Tinker
      Yes, but I don't think they are that many young teenage females into MLP, so I wouldn't know how people would react. :S

      I'm a 15-year-old female, and I might go to the Chicago one too. Don't worry, you won't be alone! C:

      Also, I'm in Wooster right now for the next couple of days, if there are any other bronies in the area. At the Rodeway Inn by Kmart. :D
