DC Bronies and Cloudsdale Congress Present: Ponies Are Back and So Are We!

This is it folks - you've all been waiting for another big official DC Bronies meetup. We've got Tenley-Friendship booked for Sept 22nd. This will also be the first official fund-raiser for Cloudsdale Congress.

Once again, if you are a maybe or can't make it, please take yourself off the RSVP list so that the waiting list folks can be bumped up.

Actual Agenda:

2:30-3:00pm Setup & Announcements
3:00-3:30pm Cloudsdale Congress Announcements - Branden
3:30-4:15pm Artist Showcase - Dark Pony & Riftwing
4:15-4:40pm "Hurricane Fluttershy" showing
5:00-5:30pm Sing-Along - BFV & Rebecca Silent Auction going on throughout. - Ink Drop
5:30pm - Go to Ft. Reno Park for Silent Auction Awards (Ink Drop), Raffle (Robert), hanging out.

Here's $$$ info for planning purposes:

Raffle: Low Tier = $1/ticket, 25 for $20; High Tier = $5/ticket, 5 for $20

Silent Auction: No limits. TMC will have a Paypal option if you want to bid beyond your on-hand cash.

Remember, no money exchanged at the library. Only at the park.

 

If you are helping out by bringing food/drink - see here:

food will be organized at this spreadsheet.

Although I know we'd all like to do dinner after the meet like we have in the past, the fact of the matter is we've gotten too big. Unofficial plans will probably be made, but it's tough to find someplace that will accept 50+ of us.

 

Questions about stuff, email these people:

Silent Auction - Ink Drop

Raffle - Robert Paredas

Sing-Along - BFV & Rebecca Starborne

Cloudsdale Congress - Branden (FIReNVY)

Anything Else - Engineer Brony

    I was wondering, when we split up to go eat/get out of the rain, where did you go?

    I know about 20 of us went to Public's, and (from tweets,) I know others went to Chipotlé. But, pic numbers[masked] look like a pizza restaurant.

    Oh my gosh, this meetup was so much fun! I wish the metro didn't delay me and I got there for the whole time, but the park was still a blast!! It was really awesome meeting you all, I can't wait for the next one. And also I can't wait for CG, everyone going to that has to meet up at some point! Also anyone can feel free to add me on skype, it's hannah.trusty! See y'all soon!

    Not a lot of time to talk and hang out due to so much programming, and then rain and the raffle at the park.

    Just like Engineer Brony, I like having a little less structure than we had. But still, (even with the brief rain,) I think our biggest meetup so far, (this one,) was our BEST. MEETUP. EVER! /)^3^(\

    It was the best. It was amazing finally meeting so many you in real life!

    Of all the meetups I had to miss, it had to be this one! >_< From the pictures, it looks like the best one yet! Regardless, I'm glad everything seemed to have went well and hopefully there aren't any more Earth pony chores to do in my future.

    We may plan stuff for meetups, but all of you are what make them AWESOME! And boy did you deliver this time! I like having a little less structure than we had today, but everyone was very tolerant of the formality we needed to have because of our events and I appreciate that.

    Totally amazing first meetup for me! Total shock at how nice every pony was/is!!!!!! Nice to finally put faces to names! Time. To. Sleep.

    The whole time I was like, omg finally meeting everyone. T'was very fun and awesome seeing some people who I'd known but never met IRL. Can't wait to hang out with some of you guys again at CG.

  • Matthew C. L.

    Massive in terms of turn-out, it was great to see such a cavalcade of both new and familiar faces. It would have been nice if the weather hadn't taken a turn for the worse, forcing us to rush through the end of the activities, but other than that it was great fun!

    Hope everypony had a blast. I couldn't make it as I was D.J.ing a good buds wedding. Had a blast doing that, hopefully you all had as much fun as I did today! (and yes I slipped Silva Hound's Fluttershy and Spitfire into the reception mix!)

    By far the most organized meetup we've ever had; this has both its advantages and disadvantages. But bronies keep the awesome going no matter the type of awesome. I was absolutely overjoyed to help out with the silent auction! Here's hoping Cloudsdale Congress soars!

    By the way, thank you everypony for being good about taking your name off the RSVP if you weren't coming. We've gotten the waitlist down to two after numerous cycles of people rearranging as needed!

    If something comes up, make sure to take your name off in case those last people on the waitlist are waiting with baited breath! =)

    Oh, one last thing...I know a lot of us barely slept last night - so at the very least, remember to eat something meal-like today! I'm notoriously bad at showing up to meetups on 4 hours of sleep, eating two cupcakes all day and then wondering why I can't think straight by the time I get home that night.

    For those who are interested, here's a preview of the pieces I'll be submitting to the silent auction today:

    So I made some pony plush pillows for this meet-up. They aren't the best because I was just testing them, but they look pretty good for a first try. They might even be on sell at the park after!

    September 22, 2012

  • David Z.

    Okay, people who care about board/tabletop games. What do you want to play from the following 2 lists?

    List 1:
    1. Ascension
    2. Tanto Cuore
    3. Thunderstone (print & play version, the "cards" are printouts sleeved over Magic cards)
    4. Nightfall

    List 2:
    1. Small World
    2. Betrayal at House on the Hill
    3. Infiltration
    4. Elder Sign
    5. Lords of Waterdeep

    (Note: I'll also bring Carcassonne + Inns & Cathedrals + The River II, as mentioned in my previous post.)

    September 19, 2012

    • David Z.

      I have 2 EDH decks that are powerful, but not broken (I specifically didn't put in known infinites, and try to remove accidental ones if I find them). I just suggested building decks from SoE cards so we could have similar power levels, but I'll bring my decks tomorrow too.

      September 21, 2012

    • John Locke (Rolling W.

      Can somepony come find me when you're about to start Carcassonne?

    So not sure if I want to take the train to DC tomorrow, so will probably just stay in Baltimore this weekend. Will be a guest at the SF club artist meeting later in the week though.

    Ok, starting my own thread to alleviate and prevent possible confusion. I wanna make sure everyone that trucker and I have talked to has a ride to the meetup and no one is traveling alone. My 4-door sedan can seat myself plus 4. The first 2 seats go to my +2 guests.

    To Alex E: trucker pony would like you to contact him n face book since he lives 10 min from you, and you are n his way he would like to offer to transport you to the metro station he's going to and ride it with him.

    To Fuhyr: your riding with me currently

    To Sondre: my understanding is that your parents would prefer not to drive you to and from, but they will if you need it.

    Proposed solution:

    My seats will be my two guests, Fuhyr, and Sondre and Alex will ride with trucker pony to a metro station and ride the metro together to the library.

    September 20, 2012

    • Chris s.

      Ok so turns out trucked is picking up Eric and Sondre has a ride, and my second guest informed me 20min ago that he has to cancel. So the only person I'm picking up tomorrow is fhuyr and someone is about to be bumped up!
