Mega Meetup At The Phoenix Convention Center

As AppleloosaCon has already rented a meeting room at the Phoenix convention center during these dates, we would love to invite the members of the community to join us there for the weekend!  We will be bringing board games, and encourage people to bring monitors and some video game systems(we will of course be bringing some as well), and plenty of small fun events like mafia and fiction readings.  We will also be using this time to train volunteers for the convention and help people who want to run panels go over them for the upcoming cons.  Perhaps most importantly though, we are looking forward to three days with a rather nice place where everyone can come and hang out at the Phoenix Convention Center and have fun together.
We have the room starting at 9:00 am each day until midnight,  and look to have at least a few people there at any time to help out and play games with. It is room 155 in the South building at the Phoenix Convention Center, and we look forward to seeing you all there at some point during the weekend!  We should have some snacks and other items available as well, though we encourage people to bring a few things as well for the event.

    It was kewl!!!
    *** *** ***
    I do say sorry to anypony who might have worried about me 'not being my usual Brony self' on Fri and Sat... I didn't realize it myself, two other friends/ neighbors of mine pointed it out Sun morn. I was a lil imbalanced because I had a guest @my room who stayed a lil too long and was leaving messes... RIGHT after I just got done cleaning... like dirty dishes... gets to me after 5+days of it! SORRY!
    But one of the best cures to Bitchiness due to Violated Environment is some of that Brony Herd Love!!!

    April 14, 2013

    • EarthStar

      Anthony, if no specific convention room for this meetup is posted by tomorrow morning, I probably won't be attending this. I have to help Danny with something anyway. We can meetup later to do a luggage test, preferably after the 1st of May since I have a certification exam to study for before then. I will always have my cellphone on me so text me whenever.

      April 18, 2013

  • chris m.

    just to redundancy my redundant, im giving a ride to jonah and david HOME. at the moment friday i will be in southern phoenix area , quite close to the convention center so i can take one other person there from that area, seeing that will make a total of 3 bronies and me in my vehicle. aside from that i MAY be free to pick up someone during saturday when i head over there, i may head after the noon. not much of a morning pony. ANYWAYS let me know via here or private message if you need a ride home friday night as well, most dropoffs will occur around south phoenix, ahwuatukke area so keep that in mind

      This event is free. The room that is being used is a left over from when Appleloosa Con was slated for this weekend. (It has been moved to October).
      The only thing you might need to worry about is the cost for parking.
