Season 3 Premiere Screening and Rainbow Dash Relief effort!

IT BEGINS!

As usual we will be holding our event at Pearl Studios NYC in Manehattan, yet unusually due to power outages and the re-scheduling of other canceled events at that venue; only smaller rooms will be available to us during the screening:Rooms #1210 and #1211 specifically. To make the most of the constrained space, one room will be designated as a theater and the other will be saved as space for everything else. A safe estimate for occupancy of each room is around 30 ponies at a time; basically this means the premiere will have to be divided into four separate screenings as described in the list below:

  • Premiere Screening : 10:00AM (Standard Definition)
  • Secondary Screening : 11:00AM (Standard Definition)
  • Third Screening : 12:00PM (High Definition)
  • Final Screening : 1:00PM (High Definition)

That being said, for those of you that want to sleep in late Good news feel more than welcome to! There's four screenings to choose from and it'd be preferable if we don't have to crowd any of them.

Be sure to dress in your sparkliness to help celebrate the return of the Crystal Empire! (Thanks to the DC Bronies for that idea!)

Even without a monthly meetup, even without the support of Hasbro we still have a chance to come together and help New Yoke heal in this great time of need. This Saturday if you can make it down to Pearl Studios, we're urging anypony who's willing and able to bring some supplies for our city's less fortunate. We'll be working with several other groups in the area including InterOccupy and meetup.com to ensure that supplies donated are distributed evenly and efficiently. Furthermore, any excess funds left over from the season three premiere screening that aren't spent on the venue will be donated to the New Jersey Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund, as well as monetary donations you can drop off at a box at the store table!. Below you'll find a list of acceptable items you can donate to the cause.

Wanted:

  • Candles, Flashlights and Batteries
  • Winter wear (jackets, coats, hats, gloves, scarves)
  • Blankets and sleeping bags
  • Toiletries and Hygiene products
  • Non-perishable food

Volunteer efforts will be discussed over the duration of the meetup, and a some artists are planning to auction off a few of their works to help out as well.Any assistance is appreciated, and remember- if you need any help recovering let us know; We'd be happy to help.

Also on hand will be a box for Toys for Tots dropoffs! All you have to do is bring a new, in package, unwrapped toy (no realistic weapon toys like guns or knives). You can also purchase one directly from our STORE TABLE and put it in the box (or we will, whatever, we're easy!)  That way a child gets a toy and the store gets some money to help us put on these meets!

While we're all certain to face continued challenges in the coming months, I'd like to remind everypony that as depressing as it all may seem; there will always be a reason to press forward, to keep calm and pony on. Never forget the friends you've made and the magic behind it all; because only with our friends can we collectively laugh and make our amounting fears just disappear.

      "Gak" is a Nickelodeon gooey, squishy, stretchy thing kind of like Slime or Floam. There were a ton of commercials for it during the Season 3 premiere eps, and even a point where it showed multiple times in a row. It became a big joke which has exploded into a meme. http://www.youtube.co...­

    My train route has been modified, so my expected arrival time is 10:08 at Penn station, so does that mean I miss the first showing if I am a bit late? Will I be denied entrance?

    November 10, 2012

    • Zorin

      You'll miss the start of the first viewing but you'll definitely get in!

      (I'm riding in a car with Minty so this is straight from the top!)

      Looks like my train arrived, I just got on and Google maps says 35 minutes, so perhaps I may make of on time, it will be close. When I get to the 12th floor, will their be signs or am I looking for certain people?

    How early should we show up to this? 9am? 9:30am? It's quite early for me to trek to NYC.

    November 9, 2012

    • "Honor Bound" B.

      I'm coming in from CT, so I'm leaving around 8:30. I can't say I know where you're coming in from, but if you're around the same distance, I'd suggest you do the same.

      1 · November 9, 2012

  • Rye_B

    Standard definition for the early showing? I thought that every TV or projectors would be upgraded to HDTVs by now.

    November 9, 2012

    • ronaldhennessy

      It looks like we are going to be dependent on a livestream. Livestreams usually aren't in HD for bandwidth purposes.

      1 · November 9, 2012

  • MintamenaPie

    We don't have a cap, but both rooms are small. Feel free to mill around, and don't forget there's plenty to see in Manehattan. <3

    Monetary donations will be taken at the Store table. I'm thinking we'll be using one of those tall clear rectangle boxes we have the loose blind bags separated into. We have a few empty ones now.

    November 9, 2012

  • CausEffect

    Did anyone else get a confirmation email from the hub about the premiere with Melissa Joan Heart?

    November 9, 2012

  • "Honor Bound" B.

    Is there still space for this? I didn't think I would be able to go to this, but it turns out I can. I just want to make sure that there is space available for those who want to RSVP.

    November 9, 2012

  • CausEffect

    Yeah....hub world is premiering at the gramercy theater on E 23rd at 10 am. What is going on?

    November 9, 2012

    • Kezzsim

      That's actually a thing, however you need to have already had a child in order to attend... so unless you have a time machine that goes back exactly 9 months and a girlfriend that's willing I'm afraid you're out of luck my friend...

      November 9, 2012

    • Alan

      I do not know if their rsvps closed, they may have at midnight. Any combo of a kid brony + 1 or 2 adult broniies works though, ea are taking a (neigh)bor, the hitting the meetup for reruns, without more LPS.

      November 9, 2012

  • Rye_B

    Jusr a heads up to everyone, the NJ transit train will have over crowding issues. So those of you who are outside NYC will have to be at the train station early. I found out that only a few train lines are running, mine is included so I am getting up early.

    November 9, 2012

    November 9, 2012

  • Rye_B

    Ok not sure if the train is up and running yet, but I when I show up, who am I looking for? I plan to donate money to help with the relief effort. So I want to donate to the right person I'm charge of the donations.

    November 9, 2012

    Is anyone going to be bringing cards for trade/sale? And even more importantly, does anyone need any standards, tattoos, standees? I'm missing one standard (no.32, Discord) and boatloads of foils... :)

    November 6, 2012

    • William G N.

      @Chris H...I would rather trade than sell, but just so you know, I have at least 1 extra full set of the tat's (2 are the Fluttershy/CMC

      November 7, 2012

    • William G N.

      @ April Beam...Unfortunately, I have those 2 particular foils. I do have an extra Rainbow Dash standee, but no Pinkie, just so's 'ya know. :)

      November 7, 2012

  • MintamenaPie

    Stop by the store, William. Disco and I will have our doubles. I know he's only missing a standard Shinning Armoire. I have some spare foils for $5 a piece or trade for a foil I need.

    November 6, 2012

  • MintamenaPie

    Since this is back at Pearl, feel free to bring your games as usual. Not sure if we have a spare monitor to hook up, waiting on Kezz, so maybe someone can bring one.

    As a reminder, here is a list of items we're collecting to donate to Sandy relief:

    Winter gear: jackets, hats, scarves, gloves, etc, but no normal clothing items. Most places have that and need to prioritize.

    Flashlights, candles, batteries! New batteries IN the flashlights/any artificial candles would help immensely.

    Non-perishable food

    Toiletries (soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc)

    Personal hygiene items (deodorant, baby wipes, feminine products, etc)

    Blankets and sleeping bags

    Also, if someone wants to dedicate their vehicle for driving the items down. For interests of distance this is the drop off center we chose is Nazareth Housing: http://interoccupy.net/occupysandy/les/ who also deliver items to where they are needed, including the Rockaways! I called them yesterday myself. <3
