    Very good. Somewhat disappointed at the lack of a fixed meeting point so we could swarm the Festival as a massive horde! Lol

    Sorry I didn't stay for the festival. We had a total of four epic games over at the Ponopoly meet up. It was great seeing the few of you who came to the meeting place early.

    April 12, 2014

    • Sugarshock (.

      I'm running a little late too. (Bad meetup host) I figure they'll wait until at least then, and if not I'll probably be there

      April 12, 2014

  • Stargazer

    Hurray for it being sunny when I got here. Couldn't find my digital copy though so may need to buy another ticket. All I found was my confirmation number... ( no printer, so couldn't just print the ticket )

    Anywho, a yone else here yet?

    April 12, 2014

  • Ben B.

    Well I'm an idiot. I left my ticket on the table. Hopefully they'll accept the digital version

    April 12, 2014

    • Steve

      I'm pretty sure they can; they're probably just scanning with the ticketmob app, so they should be able to accommodate

    Isn't there 2 exits at the Metro Center stop? Which one are we meeting at?

    1 · April 11, 2014

    • Engineer B.

      I believe one is closer to the entrance of the festival. If you pop up and don't see a mob of random bronies, you got the wrong one!

    Totally coming to this. Due to this being my first year of college. I haven't been able to go to any meet ups :( sorry guys. Hopefully I'll see y'all there. I'll be in the kimono I bought last year <3

    I'm trying to figure out what to go as... Little Sister, or Jack Frost? Help?

    April 6, 2014

  • Alex

    Are we meeting at the Metro Center Metro Station at 10:30? If so, where at the metro station are we going to meet. And FYI the peak bloom date for the Cherry Blossoms are Tuesday, April 8th to Saturday, April 12th(the day we are going.) Which means it will be extra crowded Saturday on the metro.

    April 6, 2014

  • Evan J. T.

    Hey I'm planning to go to the Monopoly meet instead, but if transportation doesn't work out I'll possibly come here instead. My costume won't be ready of course but I might bring the cape.

    April 6, 2014

  • Max S.

    I really want to go to this...but I have family commitments and family comes first.

    Is it mandatory to cosplay? Because I don't cosplay.

    March 28, 2014

    • Justin (.

      Nah, anyone can walk in as long as you pay.

      March 28, 2014

  • AppleJack

    Um, yes I am SO there. I dunno if I will cosplay, I may do Little Sister, or Jack Frost maybe? We'll see.

    March 22, 2014

  • Ben B.

    Heh, I think showing up as Magnum will work for me. At least the hat'll keep me from getting sunburn on top of my head.

    March 21, 2014

  • Stripes

    I might be showing up as Ness!

    March 20, 2014
