Hearts and Hooves Day Party at SR's

Hello everypony!

I'm going to be throwing a Hearts and Hooves Day pool party on Saturday February 15th, 2014.

As usual, the format will be much the same as previous parties I've thrown, eh. For those of y'all who have never been to one of my parties: This'll be pretty free-form and loose. Party starts at Party Standard Time (ie. show up when you can, after about noon-ish) and lasts as long as y'all want to stay. Activities will depend on what attendees want to do, but possibilities include:

* Hot(ish) Pool
* Hot tub
* Watching pony-related stuff
** Various random episode viewing
** Various PMVs or other fan-created videos
** Equestria Girls Movie viewing
** "Bronies" documentary viewing
* Playing pony-related video games
** TrotMania
** Pony Rock Project (pony-themed Rock Band)
** My Little Karaoke
* Various other pony-related activities
** Board Games
** Card games anypony wants to run on their own (Cards Against Equinity, maybe?)
* Just hanging around and chatting / drawing / playing music

Sodas, hamburgers, hot-dogs, sausages, various other grilled meats and non-meats and some snacking foods will be provided. If you have special dietary requirements or preferences, please let me know! It would be great if attendees could bring a side dish, main dish, dessert, or snack of some kind, though this isn't required of course. I should have non-alcoholic drinks covered, but I won't be providing alcoholic drinks-- if you'd like some, bring some!

As with previous parties, I must set the attendee limit for my party to 50, lest things become a bit too crowded. Please RSVP early if you want to come, and please un-RSVP yourself if you later discover you can't come (so we free up slots for those on the waiting list, as I'm guessing there will be a waiting list again).

IMPORTANT FORMAT CHANGES/NOTES:
* Standard social gathering etiquette applies. If you have a problem with body or foot odor, please make sure to bathe, use deodorant and wear fresh clean clothing before coming to the party. And please keep your shoes on! With so many bodies in one place, let's try to keep the smells tolerable, eh. ;)

* The 3:00am curfew for the hot tub worked well last time, so let's do that again: Nopony in the hot tub after 3:00am (and be quiet outside after dark, eh.) (This is of course contingent on the hot tub not being frozen at the time.)

* Last time, many attendees decided to stay up all night instead of sleeping. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but be aware that if you do want to stay overnight you may not be able to find a spot quiet enough to sleep. Also, floor space is limited, so if you do plan on staying overnight, please let me know here! I'm guessing that no more than 20 would be able to sleep on the floor space I have (and you've got to be a heavy sleeper at that), so let's try to keep it at that number. Priority will be given to those who have to travel longer distances and/or are relying on public transit. (The bus service near my house is distant and infrequent, unfortunately.) Also, for those who can, plan on bringing some bedding, as I only have so many sleeping bags and blankets.

* Bronies of all ages are welcome, though I would ask under-age bronies to have a parent or guardian present and to contact me before the party. Alcohol will almost certainly be present at the party. (And those not of legal age are of course required not to partake!)

* Those who do drink are expected to do so responsibly and maintain good behavior (though this hasn't been a problem in the past, for those of you just joining us).

* Although I am pleased that Washington has passed much saner laws with regard to the use of marijuana by responsible adults, please do not bring any to the party.

* As usual, let's keep the more adult-oriented video viewing (eg. gory, raunchy, or otherwise "highly inappropriate") off the big T.V. until late at night. (Feel free to watch these whenever you want on your personal viewing devices, but please don't do so at such a loud volume that you'd be disturbing other attendees who might not want to see or hear that stuff.)

* This is a pool party, so if you want to swim, don't forget your swimsuit! Unless we experience a particularly severe cold snap a few days before the party which freezes things solid, I fully intend to heat the pool. (The hot tub might freeze over, but I can usually get the pool up to about 80 degrees in the winter.)

    Yo SR, for your next party, you should totally get the Fighting is Magic Tribute edition. If you haven't already gotten it -- came out today I'm pretty sure.

    Here's the video of gameplay and there should be download links for the game and its online client.

    Hey, who was drawing Tales on their laptop/tablet? I know I handed my badges over to someone as a reference.

  • SR F.

    Whew! After a niiiice long nap, I'm finally feeling recovered from this party, eh! Sounds like y'all had a good time! Once again, thanks to Ethan, Curtis, James, and Brian, who helped with the set up, and the bunch of you who helped clean up on Sunday morning! (It's sooooo nice not to have a huge mess on my hooves at the end of these things, eh.)

    Anyway, next time will probably be in May sometime. I'll announce it here and on the Seattle Bronies facebook group. When I announce, those who were on the waitlist or 'not attending rsvp' list this time will have a week to claim their spot at the next party. (More details on how this is going to work to come, eh.)

    In the mean time, do y'all have any suggestions which might help me to improve the quality of these parties, eh? (Jonathan Belskus suggested I have a source of drinking water available downstairs-- which is a great idea, eh!)

    Hey all! I have some pony merch I've been looking to sell off (doubles and such). If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to bring things to the party: http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/tag/4334874515.html Please only serious offers, I don't want to lug down anything I have to bring back home! Also have some video games (http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/vgm/4334858889.html) and Adventure Time comics (http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/bks/4334860512.html). If you want something and don't have the money, also let me know and I can put something on hold for you.

  • Yulia L.

    Is there anypony who can get me a ride from Redmond?

    February 13, 2014

    • Curtis

      Do you still need a ride?

      February 14, 2014

    • David T.

      I can pick you up if you can wait until ~6:45

      February 15, 2014

    Anypony heading through Kent on the way to this shindig? My ride got sick, and won't be making it.

    February 14, 2014

    • Steve G.

      I can give you a ride Flips.

      February 14, 2014

    • Flips S.

      Works for me! Got some goodies for you kids anyhow. Lemme know when you're planning on rolling out, I'll spring up your way to hand off some stuff.

  • fidesius

    I've decided to change my plans for tomorrow, so I've opened up my spot for the next person in line.

    Have fun and see you all next time!

    • Christina D.

      Thanks for updating the RSVP list!

  • Nakuto

    Sorry again, would someone willing to come pick another pony up in seattle. I don't have any money right now. Just did my taxes so its a waiting game. But I would owe somepony money or whatever!

    February 11, 2014

    • SR F.

      There are usually a number of cars leaving my place on Sunday morning. And if it turns out there's not room for you in one of them, I can spot you a few dollars to get you where you need to go, eh.

      February 13, 2014

    • Curtis

      Were you still looking for a Saturday ride?

      February 14, 2014

  • Tyler (Missile J.

    damn, so close #6 on wait list lol

    February 14, 2014

  • Joshua N.

    I'm in need of a ride down from Seattle, specifically University District. I'm right off the freeway, so it wouldn't be too out of the way for anyone coming down on i5.

    February 11, 2014

    • Christina D.

      Curtis - how far north? I'm unfortunately stuck in Seattle until 5:30 to 6:00ish, so if anypony wants to go earlier, they should definitely get a ride with you.

      February 14, 2014

    • Joshua N.

      I'd prefer to get there a bit earlier, but only if Curtis is coming up this far already.

      February 14, 2014

  • Christina D.

    HOLY HORSE APPLES, I'M OFF THE WAITLIST!!!!

    Ahem.

    I have a work thing in the afternoon, so I have to go a bit later.

    CARPOOLING:

    I should be leaving Seattle around 5:30 or so. Right now the plan is to pick up Joshua in the U-District sometime between 5:30 and 6:00 (probably closer to 5:30), but I can pick up downtown and along the route south to Tacoma, obviously.

    I still have room for three more passengers.

    EDIT TO ADD: I'll probably be heading back to Seattle around midnight-ish (but very "ish," I might stay as late as 2, it just depends) Saturday night. I can drop Seattle folk back home again since obviously transit won't be running.

    Reply here or text me on my cell at three-won-oh, fiver-oh-oh, fiver-niner-three-se7en.

    February 14, 2014

    • Christina D.

      Also, as I'm off the waitlist, I'll bring a side dish that pretends to be healthy and possibly dessert.

      1 · February 14, 2014

  • Curtis

    Any vegetarians that eat dairy attending?

    February 14, 2014

  • SR F.

    Ok! My fridge is absolutely packed with various grillable meats. The table on the back patio is stacked almost three feet high with various beverages. There's chips, there's salsa, there's jerky and trail mix... And from the notes below and on the Seattle Bronies facebook group, it sounds like there will be plenty of alcoholic beverages.

    But! There aren't that many side dishes / snacks, and so far there are no desserts! So, if any of you is wondering what you might bring, there ya have it!

    (Also, don't forget your swimsuit. This is a pool party, after all!)

    2 · February 13, 2014

    • Heather

      I'm planning on bringing something sweet (I mean, besides myself! :p ) whether it be cookies, cupcakes, donuts...not sure yet!

      1 · February 13, 2014

    • Christina D.

      I'll bring a side-dish and/or dessert if I ever get off the blank-flanking waitlist! Only two spots to go!

      February 14, 2014

  • Lapinesoul

    Holy spumoni! Third on the waiting list? I wasn't counting on so many people to drop out! I don't have the 15th off. SR? If I make it up from the waiting list to the "attending" list, can you book me for a guaranteed spot in the next party and let the next brony in line behind me take my place for this one?

    February 10, 2014

  • Curtis

    It looks like multiple people are still needing rides from the Seattle area. I'll already be in the Tacoma area, but I can make a trip back north to pick people up Saturday morning, if needed. Please note that I am planning on staying until Sunday morning. As always, gas money is appreciated but not required if you're too strapped for cash.

    If people find other rides from people already coming that direction, that's fine. But if not, I'll be on stand-by with this plan. (Because I'm sure trying to take buses / walk from Seattle would suck.)

    I can be reached at "(for zeerow sven)-nein too won-sicks sven to sven"

    Looking forward too seeing everypony!

    So, just as a heads up, I may or may not have been working on a custom set of cards against equinity. Complete with in jokes specifically for us. First one that came to mind was "Sexual favours for a spot at one of SR's parties" So...yeah

      It is finished, prepare thyselves.

    If anyone has someone who cant attend in their +1 spot id be happy to take there place :)

    February 12, 2014

      I'd give this guy a +1 if I had one.

  • Lupon

    I think it would be great if a google docs spreadsheet was setup for rideshares. It's a long drive for me, coming from Everett, and I'd rather carpool.

    • Jen / S.

      I approve of this measure!! I will most likely be driving but I've yet to determine my route.

      January 19, 2014

    • Joshua N.

      Yep, this would be very helpful. Since it doesn't look like there's going to be one set up for this party, if anyone is able to pick me up in Seattle that'd be awesome. I'm in north Seattle, right off of i5.

  • SR F.

    Hey y'all: Just a reminder: While I wish everyone who would like to come to this shin-dig could, space limitations are going to prevent that. So! For those of you who didn't get off the waiting list this time, I highly encourage you to throw your own event elsewhere at the same time! It doesn't necessarily need to be an all-night party, but an AFK get together, or whirlyball in Lynnwood, or something is certainly a whole lot of fun, too, eh!

    (Really, I feel bad I don't have the space and ability to host all of you-- and I know that the reason we like to get together is to have fun together, so why not still do that, eh?)

    1 · February 10, 2014

    • Jonathan S.

      I'd so highly recommend this. Do a gaming night or bowling or something.

      February 10, 2014

    • SR F.

      Sweet! Someone suggested just such a meetup. Those of you who aren't off the waiting list at this point, should seriously consider going to this instead, eh! http://www.meetup.com...­
