    Even though I didn't stay for both days, I think it was well worth the trip. The Oregon Meetup group made me feel very welcomed and Portland is a beautiful city. Powell's was pretty awesome as well, I didn't even know bookstores got that big!

    2 · August 9

  • Tales

    Punch Bowl time!

    August 9

  • Tales

    We are heading to the mall now. If anyone is still at Powell's, most of us have left.

    August 9

  • Tales

    Many of us have moved to the food trucks, but I believe there are a few still at the park!

    August 9

  • Tales

    Is anyone interested in some pony bead badges? http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8424643/ They run $20 each, and I'll be bringing some down. If you'd like to pre-order and secure one, please let me know TODAY!

    August 8

      2 · August 9

  • Curtis

    Looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend!

    Also, I've unexpectedly come to possess a prodigious amount of donuts. So if you find me, you will also find donuts. (Until I manage to give them all away.)

    1 · August 9

  • Fine Line & Nick the H.

    This is my final call for carpool rides, if you live near or south of Bellevue I have TWO seats available to Portland, send me a text with an address and I'll do my best to find you.
    I'm only there for the first day Saturday, departing 7:30(ish)am, returning 9:00(ish)pm.

    The more the merrier!

    August 8

  • Jonathan S.

    SR 520 is going to be completely closed all weekend, so adjust plans if necessary.

    1 · August 8

  • Danielle

    Is anyone going in cosplay??

    1 · August 7

    • Tales

      Jon Sokol made himself a pair, you might ask about commissioning him. Other than that, nothing official is out. So options are make a set yourself or buy them from someone else. :)

      2 · August 8

    • Jonathan S.

      I might wear my ears and tail, but otherwise the walking/temperature is not particularly suitable. I've thought about making more sets of accessories, but I don't have a tendency to make/sell pony stuff. It's mostly just fleece and wire. I just eyeballed it.

      1 · August 8

  • Fine Line & Nick the H.

    So does anyone know what kinds of activities are taking place or is it just a casual social gathering, because I'm basically traveling blind. The description says bowling, which sounds right up my alley! (Bowling puns, I'm not proud of it)

    August 3

    • Kyle D.

      My little karaoke... I need this, if I must turn equestria upside down I will find it

      August 8

    • Jonathan S.

      mylittlekaraoke.com, but you've probably found it by now.

      August 8

  • Ionic

    Does anyone have room in their car?

    August 8

    • SR F.

      I think Kyle DeSaulniers is driving to my place early on Saturday morning, whereupon we're planning on driving my car down to Portland. I still have one open seat, so if he can pick you up on the way to my place, that ought to work to get you down to Portland, eh.

      August 8

    • SR F.

      Oh yes-- I think Kyle also lives in Bermerton (or thereabouts), so Port Orchard should be relatively close for him.

      August 8

  • Tales

    I also have pony comics I'll be bringing to sell.

    Issue #1 Cover E (Fluttershy) - $5
    Issue #3 Cover RI - $12
    Twilight Sparkle Micro Cover A - $5
    Issue #5 Midtown Comics variant - $20
    Issue #6 Cover RI - $12

  • Bejoty

    Just to note! I'm compiling a "What to Bring" list for everyone, linked up in the description. It's just whatever comes to mind first, so I probably missed some good suggestions. Reply if you think it needs something!

    1 · August 8

    • Tales

      Phone chargers!

      August 8

  • Bejoty

    Haha, I shouldn't have mentioned the RSVP emails; it's just causing needless confusion. That said, I'm writing up the baseline 'schedule' plans for you all, so expect to see it in your inbox today!

    And per usual, throw any additional questions here.

    August 7

  • Kyle D.

    Anyonw willing to teach me how to play the ccg? I will bring my cards

    August 7

    • Curtis

      I'm sure someone can. I'll probably bring my cards.

      August 7

  • Tales

    GET HYPE!

    2 · August 6

  • Bejoty

    Okay, for real this time, I will be sending out the grand third update
    message in the morning across both meetups! We're coming up on the
    final days before the big shindig, so get hype!

    1 · August 5

  • Celine L.

    Hey fellow pony lovers! Can I ask one of you a favor while you're all going down to Portland? Our fellow brony Toksyuryel has some items that need to be picked up at a one Guardian Games in Portland. They didn't ship his items for the championship up after our visit a month ago :( if anyone would be willing to do this, I'm sure he'd be eternally grateful!

    August 2

    • Fine Line & Nick the H.

      So yeah, I could probably pick up said items if you want, I could even drop them off at Toksy's place on my way back up, I pass through Renton on my way home and I basically already know where he lives, which isn't creepy at all.

      1 · August 2

    • Celine L.

      Hey Nick! Thanks a bunch. :) you're awesome. The person you shoul ask for is Nathan. He's a tall bearded guy. Yay!

      August 2

  • Sammy S.

    I would go if I could. But sadly I very little money left after Everfree Northwest.

    August 1

  • Fine Line & Nick the H.

    I have three (3) open seats for anyone wanting to head down JUST FOR THE ONE DAY; Friday, August 9. I'll be leaving from Bellevue and I'm willing to pick up anyone living as far north as Redmond or Kirkland and as far east as Mercer Island then be heading south toward Renton, Kent and beyond.

    I'll probably stick around Portland as long as there are events and things to do down there before heading back up.

    I'm unable to stay for both days, work is a pain in the flank but I'm getting a fancy paycheck to spend this upcoming weekend. /)^u^(\

    August 1

  • Kyle D.

    Confirmed I have the weekend off. SR foxley if we can't fill two cars and I end up dropping mine off at your house what time would be a good time to arrive, the notice says the festivities begin at noon :/

    August 1

    • SR F.

      Hi Kyle. It's about a 3 hour drive from Puyallup to Portland, so I'd like to get out the door by 8:30am at the latest. (That gives us a half-hour of wiggle room in case we run into anything unexpected.)

      August 1

  • The D.

    I can't go. Gotta save money for BronyCAN! :P

    1 · August 1

  • Kyle D.

    Open invitation for carpool, 3 seats just help with gas please. Driving from silverdale so I can pick up from bremerton ferry. New guy eager to make friends

    August 1

    • SR F.

      Let me know if you have trouble filling the car. I'm also offering rides to people, and if we don't have enough to fill two cars, it probably makes sense to meet somewhere in between (my house since I'm in Puyallup?) and then just carpool together on south to Portland, eh.

      August 1

    • Kyle D.

      Ya that sounds like a good idea, I'm not sure how many people are gonna take my offer haha meeting up in bremerton is kinda convoluted for a seattlite

      August 1

  • SR F.

    I was thinking of calling the hostel ( http://nwportlandhostel.com/ ) and reserving a dorm room-- but I was wondering: Has anyone already done that who I could join? If not, who else might be interested in sharing a dorm room?

    July 31

    • Kyle D.

      I am trying to get the time off from dominos, if I can then I am totally in for it, I'm trying to find a carpool but will make the trek if I must, let everypony know I have a saturn and can take 3 others

      August 1

    • SR F.

      Cool beans! Just responded to your other note. I drive a Prius and we might combine cars if we don't get enough riders, eh.

      August 1

  • Blaine

    If anyone has an open carpool, I'll gladly join in. I can pitch in for gas too.

    July 31

    • Kyle D.

      If I can get the time off I will take 3 others only catch is I will be picking them up from the bremerton ferry terminal, makes no sense to ferry into seattle just to escape it. Will post a verification asap

      August 1

  • Fine Line & Nick the H.

    This event falls on the one day off I get in my 13 day work week. By Celestia's beard, I will make this the best day ever!

    Also, I may post carpool information in about a week if my job will ACTUALLY allow me some respite. Curse you SeaFair!

    Also also, anyone notice on the July 31st there's a Seafair event called Summer Gala "RACING IS MAGIC".

      Oh, that is hilarious! Bronies: We invade all the things!

      1 · July 28

  • Ethereal V.

    Sadly I won't be able to make it. However I'll be out having fun with a few Bronies in Tillamook at the fair and the beach nearby. A couple of us may try to go Sunday on our way back though!

    July 21

  • Benjamin-B

    Who wants a free seattle City pass for one adult and two children. Only ones we have used are the Seattle Aquarium and the Space Needle.
    Only good for 4 more days.

    July 15

  • Mars M.

    Does it cost anything? Do I have to buy tickets?

    July 12

    • Bejoty

      It does not! Although our destinations will tempt your wallet with delicious food and awesome merch, this is definitely an event that can be accomplished on a budget.

      1 · July 13

  • Toksyuryel

    Will there be an MLP CCG regional held here?

    July 10

    • Jonathan S.

      There isn't really the means to do something like that. The venue is essentially downtown Portland and we'll be keeping active most of the weekend.

      July 10

    • Toksyuryel

      Got it. Probably won't be able to make it to this then.

      July 11

  • Paul

    uhhhhh YES! xD

    July 10

  • Celine L.

    I'll be a few hours late getting there but this seems like FUN!
