Renn Faire Again???? My Little Renaissance Pony 2013

http://www.rennfest.com/

Stuff to think about.

1. No weapons. they are not allowed so don't bring any

2. There are spirits. If you can't handle your liquor, don't drink. Or bring a nanny. That is allowed. And make sure you have a safe person to ride home with (ie someone who drives a car and has not been drinking). Vomiting in people's cars is not encouraged.

2.5 Darkpony, if you are going bring your leash and don't climb rock walls drunk.

3. Yes you can cosplay. It needn't be pony themed.

4. Cash is king. If you want to buy stuff bring cash. If you want food, bring cash.

5. If you ride with someone pay the driver for gas. Cash is best. See the handy dandy spreadsheet if you need a ride :) it will be here soon.

6. We will be buying tickets as a group in order to get the discount. I will collect money and purchase all of them at once. Cost is $18 per person. BRING CASH! Acceptable combinations of bills are as follows: (1x $10, 1x $5, 3x $1's) or (Any combination of $5's and $1's totaling $18). DO NOT hand me a $20 or 2x $10's.

7. We will meet outside of the ticket booth between 11 and 11:30 to buy tickets. If you are already in the Faire by them, great. If not get there with cash on time so we can all buy tickets together. Between 11:30 and 12 we will take a group picture, and then head in by noon.

--------------------------------------------------

We will probably split up to walk around during the Faire like last time. You're on your own for when you'd like to leave or if you'd like to organize dinner after fair.

    The faire is the faire, and it is awesome!

    I am really sorry I wasn't in more high spirits after the faire, but I had a crushing headache and really all I wanted to do was sleep. It was great at the faire though! Once again my glorious fake mustache got too many compliments and Ben's bodacious REAL mustache didn't get enough... We both have plans to deal with that next year...

      And also, good to see Speedforce and Sapphire working their respective booths, Thanks for the dice bag Liss! My dice feel better already!

    It was fun, but we didn't do a single activity as the whole group. I think it would have been fun to do that before splitting.

    September 21, 2013

    • Josh T.

      Wow I sound negative. That was not the feeling I meant to convey. It was intensely fun, I can't really think of anything bad except that rain made us leave earlier than planned, what I was trying to say is that when we return to RennFest next month we should try to do something as a group before we split. We all had fun with our mini-groups and I think we have potential for some really epic mega-fun if we combine all the little groups into one big group for one activity.

    great time but small turnout

  • Alex E

    My ride is also unable to go, and although I now have a means of going to the event, I still am left without a way to return. I can be dropped off anywhere within a ten or so mile radius of Baltimore. It would really be appreciated of anyone could drive me back.

      Damn dude, wish I woulda seen this earlier, I'm from Bmore myself and woulda happily gave you a lift

      September 21, 2013

  • Drax

    Well I made it, sad that so few didn't. Last year was alot more fun, but I brought my nice this time so it all worked out. She got the fox tail and I got the sword I wanted last year, and I had SOO many people fangasming over my Luna shirt. Yes, the fans are everywhere. Although it felt kinda weird being mobbed by about 8 teenage girls because of my shirt and plushie. Hope to see more of you guys next year!

  • Engineer B.

    I'm neither in fair garb, nor pony merch, so look for a very engineery looking individual ( olive drab shirt, jeans, work boots, black backpack with tiny TaviScratch pin on it)

    September 21, 2013

  • Josh T.

    I know it's last minute, but the person who was supposed to pick me up is now unable to go. Can somepony please pick me up from my home in Owings Mills (a Baltimare suburb) so I don't have to miss out on the fun?

    DANG NABBIT! of course its on the day of the ACT XD. Haven't had the chance to meet any other bronies yet and im dieing to do it.

    September 18, 2013

    • Spicermedic

      Sad :( Maybe at the next meet up. If anything changes please join us!

      September 19, 2013

    • Ryan H.

      Sadly its not, but i do hope someone posts how it goes!

      September 20, 2013

  • Prince Ixion (.

    Due to a mix of personal matters and near total lack of money, I won't be able to attend. For the people who were planning on riding with me, call me at[masked] and I'll point you in the direction of another person who can drive.

    September 20, 2013

    • Prince Ixion (.

      Did you get my email?

      September 20, 2013

    • Josh T.

      If you're referring to the email where you said there is no alternate ride, then yes I got it.

    hey its supposed to rain on Saturday, if it dose is everyone still gonna go?

      Eurgh....

      September 20, 2013

  • Ben B.

    I'll be there early, but I'll come back out to meet up with everyone. I won't be available for post fair stuff since I have to leave on a business trip almost immediately afterwords.

    September 20, 2013

  • Prism

    Just realized that I'm signed up fer this event, and I have no money....
    .... how ironic.

    September 19, 2013

    • TruckerPony

      so are you changing your RSVP

      September 20, 2013

    • Prism

      I'm not sure....

      September 20, 2013

  • Kate M.

    Jay and I might be pretty late. We're going to tour a possible wedding venue (which we can't put off, as Saturday wedding slots fill up fast and our ideal date is a Saturday in September 2014) and the tour is at noon. If you guys are going to be around for a few hours, we'll try to meet up with you when we get there!

    September 20, 2013

    • Josh T.

      If you still want to borrow the tambourine, you will have to find me in the crowd. Once you're in the correct area, it should be pretty easy to spot me as I will have AB with me!

      September 20, 2013

    I may be a bit late since I'm working on a photo project that morning.

    September 20, 2013

  • Delc17

    Had to change reservation to no since I have 0 dollars available in my bank account. I literally am broke until Friday. Nothing in savings, checking

    September 19, 2013

  • Kate M.

    Does anybody have a tambourine I could borrow? I'm doing a gypsy-esque theme and I could use something like that. Thanks!

    September 19, 2013

    • Josh T.

      I have one! It has a picture of a dove on it, is that okay?

      September 19, 2013

    • Kate M.

      Not a problem, thanks!

      September 19, 2013

  • Josh T.

    I'll be instantly recognizable. I'm bringing AB to show her what the real Crusaders life was like! Sort of. Anybody planning to go to the joust show?

    September 19, 2013

    Does anyone in the Columbia / Ellicott City area need a ride? Please email me if you do at [masked]

    If you could hold the group photo off till after 1:00 when i get off i'd appreciate it.

    September 18, 2013

    • TruckerPony

      what booth are you working this year

      September 19, 2013

    • Speed F.

      Ribs & chicken near the boars head tavern, same as last year. Blue and yellow awning.

      September 19, 2013

  • Josh T.

    I had an idea. We should each wear something pony, so we can recognize each other in the crowd after we split. Also, I will need a ride, preferably from Baltimore County but I can also be picked up from Montgomery County if necessary.

    September 9, 2013

    • Douglas Eber (Daring D.

      If that falls through, Josh, let me know. I might be able to swing by and get you.

      September 18, 2013

    • TruckerPony

      my man pack has plenty of brony button and my dc bronies button to so I can be identified

    I needs a ride, I don't feel like putting up with my Grandmother's BS.

    • TruckerPony

      if cant find a closer ride let me know

      September 19, 2013

  • Ori W.

    Hey peeps -- if anyone would like to borrow some costuming/ garb for the day let me know. I have a spare leaf cloak and a few other small things I can lend out.

    September 17, 2013

    • Josh T.

      Do you have anything that would fit a baby or toddler?

      September 18, 2013

    • Ori W.

      Nope -- unisex adult sized stuff only

      September 19, 2013

  • Erin S.

    hey peeps... kimmy was pretty much my ride, and i still want to/ kinda need to go this weekend... with you guys, i thought this would make a great topic for my anthropology project, if i can get a ride from anyone... thatd be fabulous as heck

    September 18, 2013

    • Spicermedic

      Did you ever find a ride Erin?

      September 19, 2013

  • Josh T.

    I'll be attempting the "brony in public" thing for the first time in a non-brony environment, and I want to do it epic. Does anybody have any medieval-ish stuff in toddler size Apple Bloom can borrow for a few hours? Also, the event description kind of contradicts itself in regards to dinner. It says we should meet up afterwards to decide what to do for dinner then the next sentence says we're on our own for dinner. Now I'm confused.

    September 17, 2013

    • Josh T.

      The rest of you, how will I know when I see other group members? I don't really know anybody yet.

      September 18, 2013

    • Spicermedic

      Oh you'll know Josh. I guarantee it. Also, I would recommend sticking with your ride. You wouldn't want to get stuck there. With that said, I can't offer a ride, but you are welcome to join me :) Although, Trucker is cooler and might be more fun!

      1 · September 19, 2013

  • TruckerPony

    well i will be there early like usual since i like parking close to the gate. so i will be there around 9 am

      HAHAH! That was my second meetup and I was still forming my opinion of you. In all honesty you confuzzled the hell out of me! Thankfully I realized your inherent awesomeness and no ill will was carried forward.

      September 15, 2013

    • John Rose (Sky D.

      Well damn. Wish I had seen that. 0.o

      September 17, 2013

  • John Rose (Sky D.

    Shoot. I can't go. I've got not enough money to get to this one. Less about gas more about admittance. So unless my 'broke' status changes I won't be able to go this time around. sorry folks. Anime USA stabbed my wallet with a rusty spoon.

    September 17, 2013

  • Douglas Eber (Daring D.

    Anyone need a ride? I'm coming down from northern Baltimore County through 83 and 695-W, then 97, so if anyone can get themselves close to me, I can pick you up and drive on down. Only got one seat though, so first come first serve!

    September 16, 2013

    I would love to go. If anyone is providing rides in the DC metropolitan area, I would be so grateful.

  • Nicole (.

    Hey everyone, my grandpa is sick so I have to go out of town the day of the meetup. Is anyone able to take over getting everyone together etc for me? I'm not sure if playing it by ear would work for this meetup since there are so many of everybody :( I'm **@() bummed I can't go but I will be at the next one!!!!!!

    September 14, 2013

    • Engineer B.

      Nicole contact me about this and I'll be taking over. So find Engie in front of the ticket booths by 11. I reserve the right to speed the process of getting people into fair along, so don't rely on us getting that group shot and not going in until 12...show up no later than 11:25.

    Hey music fans -- make sure to catch Cu Dubh at least once while your there they ROCK!! Also if you're looking for a tarot reading ill be bringing mine with me. But since there is a professional reader there ill only be doing them before fair opens so come early for tailgating and Tarot :)

      Whoa I just realised that . Wrong thing ~

      September 11, 2013

  • Prince Ixion (.

    I'll be passing through the Hagerstown, and then Baltimore areas on my way there if all goes well. I'll add my name to the spreadsheet if anyone in those areas needs a ride. If life kicks me down and I have to cancel, I'll let everyone who's riding with me know asap.

  • Speed F.

    Talked to my manager today and I will be able to spend most of the day with you all. They don't let you just take a day off to come to faire. If you can be there you should work, so I worked it out with mt boss and the big boss and I'm only working until 1:00.

    i have an anthropology project i need to do (Lyra would be proud) i will post a pic of the project on the off topic FB page, but i think you guys would have a blast helping me out, essentially i need to place myself in a cultural scene of sort (renn fest) or a group of people (DCB) that im not familiar with (screw that i'll fake it) and pretty much describe my experience :3
