• Nightly Roundup #488

    It's been rather grey and rainy, the pitter-patter of gentle droplets hitting my rooftop a common occurrence as of late. A perfect time to stay indoors and catch up on things or take a nice warm nap! Even the gloomiest of days can offer up their own opportunities.

    Hope your Saturday went well pony folk, especially for you all attending EQLA. I hear it has been a blast so far!

    Time to end the night (or start your day as many of you keep reminding me in the comments) with some news!

    Successful Meetups

    Pre-EQLA Meetup

    Copy Paste:

    The Inland Empire Bronies group hosted a pre-eqla meet up dinner and everypony showed up. a lot of fun was had by all. Brony groups from all over california came. A special thanks to the Bronies of the Desert and The Norcal Bronies for coming out. After dinner we went to downtown Disney and had a few games of Telephone. It was a great time and an amazing way to kick off EQLA.
    Sincerely, Shadow and KibbieTheGreat

    Bronies of Northern Ireland Meetup

    Copy Paste:

    We had a group of 16 bronies participating in a my little pony quiz, which involved 42 questions split into 2 separate sections.  The quiz was done in teams of 2 and in the end we had a draw for first place and had a tie breaker question to settle this issue.  The team in first place are in the middle of the first photograph and the team in second and third place are to the right and left of them respectively.
    After this we headed to Castle Court to warm up and get a bite to eat, as it was very cold at the location the quiz was held.
    Sadly we could not buy anymore pony merchandise as Belfast has still not recovered from the last meet when we bought all of the pony stock in various shops.
    I would like to personally thank everyone who attended this meet up and made it very enjoyable and a good laugh!
