Apple Family Reunion

  • This location is shown only to members

I (applejack) have decided to host another family reunion! My idea for this was for us to recreate the Apple Family reunion. But in a fun way! So the first half would be everypony in 3 groups. Our "Youngins" (basically anypony who wants to do this) will be doin the 7 legged (Or in our case 3 legged) race! Not so youngins will be makin Apple Fritters (Probably just helping make an apple snack and such) or quilting (just using thread and needle and putting scraps of fabric together to make "pony plushie" blankets.) And after all that is said and done, We'll have a Hay Ride and a cardboard barn built up, (and run over the barn with the tractor). Then REBUILD THE BARN! :DD

We'll have free time after that for throwing frisbees, eating dinner, drawing, chatting, swimming, and bon fire!

Stallions bring a drink!

Mares bring a bag of chips!

Everypony is encouraged to bring an apple dish of some kind! (try and keep some of it cinnamon free for those of us allergic to cinnamon)

(Spreadsheet:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AixDstlSdu4odHcwZ0tzNElyU1hzTENQWldEVHdPR1E#gid=0 )

Spicer is grilling hamburgers and dogs

I'll be bringing stuff to make cider and such

Schedule:

12:00 -Howdy Y'all!

12:30 -Opening Activities (Games, Obstacle course, Arts/Crafts, Apple snacks)

2:00 -Hay Ride

2:30 -Barn Raising & Square Dance

3:30 -Karaoke

4:00 -Free Time

6:00 -Dinner

7:30 -Bon Fire

10:00 -Good bye y'all, hope ta see ya again!

(Note: Sleeping over till Sunday is NOT an option. Period. No ifs, ands, or buts. Thank ya kindly fer understandin!)

    Had a lot of fun, and I hope everypony enjoyed the caramel apples. It's great to have someone else to make food for.

      Oh, and I almost forgot to thank Applejack for organizing the event :D

      September 9, 2013

  • TheBaraclough

    I wanted to thank Spicer and Applejack for hosting and planning/running the event. It was super well organized and very generous to open up your home to so many other crazy fans let alone feed and entertain us. I also wanted to know, did you find a zecora pin without the clasp somewhere? I can't find the pin itself but had the clasp in my hat when I took it off.

    September 8, 2013

    • Spicermedic

      I'll keep an eye out for it. Any idea where it might be close too?

      September 8, 2013

    • TheBaraclough

      It would either be in the field or around/in the house because I didn't really go anywhere else really. Not certain I lost it there but it's a possibility so I thought I'd ask. Let me know if you or anybody else finds it.

      September 8, 2013

  • Josh T.

    There's a few sketches I did that I think are worthy of going into my online gallery. If your sketch is listed below, please let me know if I have permission. I won't put OC's in the public gallery but AJ, I forgot what the names of yours were for my personal art records folder. The art I would like to put up are: Spice's pic of Rainbow and Scoot, Rarity, Princess Luna, Pinkie jumping out of a cake, Vinyl Scratch, Princess Twilight.

  • AppleJack

    Thank you thank you THANK YOU, to all of you wonderful bronies who made it out to Spicers! I had a lot of fun planning this with Spicer, and even though I felt a bit sick and almost went Lesson 0 twilight, I had a great time! I am really really appreciative of the volunteers we had step up and take on the games, even if they didn't entirely know what was going on themselves. Thank you to those who brought food! I didn't get to see most of it, but I'm sure it was amazing! To those of you who brought cider, I love you! I was worried we wouldn't have any.. and there were 2 gallons left over on Sunday. >:3 I has cider nao. Thank you Josh Turner for bringing your karaoke, even if it was a pain to set up at first. Thank you to those who brought fabric, and whomever brought that big bag, since we didn't use it, you can have it back! Spicer currently has it. Thank you to those who brought cardboard as well! And one last thank you to all of you for being so quick to help clean up when asked!

    • Josh T.

      You were the Fiddlesticks? Then you're the one who forgot to pick up your art commission before leaving! I made a thorough search around the property after the fire but never found you, so ultimately I had to give it to someone else. I owe you a new commission at a future party.

      September 8, 2013

      Sorry , my mom had to go , shes not good at driving in the dark :/

    I liked all of the events, especially the hayride, & bonfire. The apple based snacks were all really good. I also loved the burgers (with the homemade sauce) & hot dogs. (I wish I could've taken some home.)

    AJ: Thank you for planning the Apple Family Reunion.

    Spicer: Thank you for letting us hold another great meetup at your house.

    Hey guys, I just made a facebook page for my ponysona (and I'll be devoting all my mlp stuff to it, like my drawings and such). Add me if you met me at this meetup! https://www.facebook.com/sparkling.hues

    September 8, 2013

  • Josh T.

    My first meetup was an almost total success! I say almost because I had some problems early on, both with being late due to traffic and later with the technical difficulties at the beginning of karaoke. But after that it was a great day! I can call karaoke and my art giveaways total successes! We ran the karaoke for approximately six hours and I did 15 art commissions including Luna which was my best princess sketch ever! I'm a little sad that nobody requested my favorite pony but there's always next time and every picture I did was fun, especially Pinkie jumping out of a cake. Big thank yous to Spice and AJ for hosting this party, as well as everybody who requested art, and everybody who made the karaoke as popular as it became. I know my high score tables are completely messed up now but it was worth it! To everybody who wanted to play Apples to Applejack, I'm sorry that I never actually got that started. I'll make that available at a future event instead.

    2 · September 8, 2013

    • TheBaraclough

      I was wondering what happened to apples to applejack. But anyway thanks for bringing karaoke. I'll admit I thought it was kind of stupid but I had a blast watching and singing and wish I got in line. I'm glad your first meetup was a success and hope to see you at more =D.

      I was too busy having fun to remember to bring out the game.

    Was my first lengthy meetup and first time meeting most of you, and I had a great time. Thanks to everyone who endured my bad singing, thanks to everyone who sang duets with me (Claudia nailed the essence of the Cutie Mark Crusaders, if I may say so), and thanks to everyone for putting this together.
    Also, TEAM H RULES!

    Best party ever!! And karaoke was a phenomenal idea. Good times were had by all

    1 · September 7, 2013

    • mike a

      Karaoke was a blast :D

      September 7, 2013

    • Josh T.

      It was a pain to set up though. Thanks to the dozen or so who waited patiently in the karaoke area as we tried to work through our technical difficulties. Because we already had a crowd when we finally went live, it made it that much easier to get a good time going once everything worked. I do apologize for torturing everypony with my bad singing four times, and for needing to cut it off when I did. I was worried about the possibility of my computer overheating because after several hours processing several peripherals it was starting to get warm. But Jared and I will definitely make karaoke available again at some future events!

      September 8, 2013

    TONS of fun, great job everyone!

    2 · September 8, 2013

  • Lauren S.

    This was a lot of fun! It was nice meeting everypony, and seeing a few familiar faces in the crowd. Thank you AJ and Spicer for organizing such a great party! All of the scheduled events were fun, all the apple goodies I tried were nummy, and I had fun singing with everypony at the karaoke. I'm only sad that my throat is too sore to sing any more MLP songs at the moment, because there's a few stuck in my head that I just want to keep singing! :P

    Awesome time as always at the Spicer fortress. AJ, way to go on wrasslin a rowdy bunch of bronies and maintaining your cool (from what I saw) in the midst of chaos and hoo ha. Thanks to the Spicers for letting us use your house, pool, and hot tub. Not to mention grilling for a hundred odd folks. This was a great way to spend a day, Thanks everyone. First time I didn't DJ at a Spicer event! It was great to just relax and not have to worry about my set later on.
