    Tonight's Successful Meetups

    Warwickshire University Brony Meetup

    WUBS (warwickshire University Brony Society)

    August 11th was the date when several rowdy bronies gathered to join in the Equestria girls meetup. Taking place at the coventry showcase cinema which was miles out of the way for everyone attending.Hugely successful last minute meetup which ended in more people than expected arriving at the cinema. The cinema was empty apart from us giving us the perfect opportunity to cheer and yell in happiness at points where our favourite characters participated in the film.People from leamington, warwick, and coventry came to watch the film and contact details were exchanged in order to meet up in the future.The film ended in the derpy scene and as a result derpy was thrown into the air in celebration.

    Feel free to contact us if you are interested in participating in the future meetups of WUBS.
    Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/WUBSoc/?fref=ts

    Make sure to contact us if your a brony in warwick university and haven't met any others yet as we are happy to meet new ponies.

    Sonoma County Fair Meetup

    Here's another meetup story for the next Nightly Roundup. I included an image and a description. Hope to see it up soon. Thanks. :)

    Meetup Description: On July 31st, a good handful of bronies from the Sonoma County area met up at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, and had a complete blast. The meetup was on a wristband day, which offered unlimited rides for the entire day, and most of the group stayed until near closing time. Various activities included butterfly feeding, playing in water-walking balls, singing pony songs on the Ferris Wheel, and watching a portion of Equestria Girls together.

    Dearborn Michigan Convention Meetup

    So, attached you will find a photo of a group of Ponies who made an appearance at a Steampunk convention this past April...."Up in the Aether Convention".... in Dearborn, Michigan.

    They were quite amused when I took the picture and said: "Okay, Everypony, say 'Grand Galloping Gala'!" Rainbow Dash doing what she does best......and Poor Applejack said she had lost her hat :-/

    I did not expect to see them come strolling in, but they were a big hit and it has inspired me to check out a Brony convention next year ;-)

    Taiwan Meetup

    OCs Reddy Ready and Budget Blank are pleased to announce the successful completion of the second annual large scale brony meet-up in Taipei, Taiwan. Over 100 bronies got together to enjoy a variety of fun activities such as pony cakes, pony karaoke, pony dancing, a pony auction, and even a pony trivia game where one skilled brony walked away with a picture of Twilight Sparkle autographed by Tara Strong herself. Everypony had a wonderful time sharing in the magic of friendship with our favorite ponies, the OCs, and with each other.

    Animation Project Looking For More

    My friends and I are working on this huge animation piece. We're talking on the scale of Double Rainboom or so. The script is coming along nicely. We have the voice actors lined up. And we're even in talks with a fairly popular brony musician. Unfortunately, we're short on animators. Now, they aren't necessary right now. We can wait until the script is completed. But, we do need to get commitments from anyone with notable animation experience. This is our project leader's Deviantart page: http://purpleroselyn.deviantart.com/ and this is the link to the DA group about the animation: http://mlpside6movie.deviantart.com/ You should be able to find plenty of information there. If you're interested, talk to our project leader, PurpleRoselyn, and show her some of your animation experience. We'll get in contact with you right away. Thank you.
