• Nightly Roundup #869

    Heya gang! Sorry for no Roundup last night, I was taking a friend to a train station last night and didn't have the time. Also, we're trying out a new time for the Roundups! Instead of 10pm blog time they are going up at 12am blog time as we have been getting a bit of late night news lately that ends up burying the Roundup causing people to miss it. Hope the new time still works for you all!

    Anyhow, long Roundup tonight so check it all out after the break!

    Minnesota Bronies January Meetup

    Hello on the heels of our 1st meetup of the year here is the group photo from the event.

    Finnish Brony Meetup

    Helsinki 4.1 Brony Meet-up
    On the 4th of January Bronies from all around Finland gathered together for another traditional Helsinki Meetup. Over a hundred people attended the event, which began at 2pm and lasted until 10 in the evening. There were also smaller gatherings around town before and after the main event.

    At the meetup, Bronies were given a few hours to socialize before the first activity: The notoriously difficult pony quiz! Several teams competed for the highest score in the 20 question event and though all the questions were straight from the series, the average result was around 6. Two teams tied for first place with an impressive 13 correct answers, and the event was settled with an epic round of Rock Paper Scissors. Third place was won with an equally impressive 11 correct answers.

    After the quiz there was a short break before the new episode was streamed, and after that, by popular demand, we re-watched the Bats! episode.

    Another tradition in Helsinki meetups, the pony auction started around 7pm. There were some great deals as always, and the most popular items quickly rose to 3-digit prices. Around 25 items were sold to the highest bidders in the exciting event.

    After a few more hours of socializing, the event came to a finish and the masses of satisfied Bronies went their separate ways, eagerly waiting for the next Helsinki meetup.
