New Member Potluck February 2014!

  • February 22, 2014 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

We welcome both new members (hence the title) as well as old. So come on down. We have friends, food, sports, drinks, games, raffles, nerf wars, music, and much, much more!

You don't need to bring food to come, but if you can, it would be awfully kind. Some ideas would be chips, drinks, cold and warm finger food, salads, food to grill (maybe even some charcoal) , desserts, vegetarian/vegan dishes, pasta dishes, etc.

(Please mention if you have any type of food allergies. We want everyone to have a great time and be safe) (Also the grillin' items are for everyone and we would love that everyone pitch in some cash, if possible. Even the smallest contribution helps make the potlucks great!) 

If you can't bring food, another idea would be to bring raffle donations. It can be some MLP merch you bought at a store, or even something you created on your own.


Bangerang!


WARNING: Just a friendly reminder. Parking is free in and around the Twila Reid Park, but do not park next to private residential homes. The police will issue parking tickets to violators.

      It was great having both you and Lucas at the potluck! But I don't know if we should allow someone with a totally unfair advantage at lava monster

      February 23, 2014

    • LoneDonut

    As always, the New Member Potlucks are the soul pride of Socal Bronies. I want to thank all the people who contributed to my Trotting Dead nerf war. To the people who helped critique, come up with new rules, and especially for playing! I'll put the 2 photos up real soon, and the 3 videos on my youtube page.

      Now come on bailey, the potluck aren't the soul pride of SoCal bronies. Things like the gala and EQLA are, not a silly event I host monthly

      February 22, 2014

    • Josh

      It's still a two hour trip for me, and I haven't left. I won't be going now.

      February 22, 2014

  • Noah W.

      February 22, 2014

    • Carlos P.

      February 22, 2014

  • Typhoon Blade (Victor C.

    Almost there.

    February 22, 2014

  • Josh

    I decided that a two hour drive with awful traffic is not what I want to endure. Sorry to flake out.

    February 22, 2014

  • Noah C.

    Sorry friends. Looks like I won't be attending, as I'm a little sick :( maybe next time.

    February 22, 2014

    • jonathan

      nuuu T^T get well soon bud

      February 22, 2014

  • Samicx S.

    February 22, 2014

  • Andrew Blue Firebird L.

    Gonna be there around noon

    February 22, 2014

  • Falen-chan

    alright, I'm leaving, I'll see you all in a few hours.

    February 22, 2014

  • Sunny B.

    I could try to make this, though I'll probably be there after nine (I'm supposed to get off of work at 7:30am, and google maps estimates it's about 2 hours to get there via public transit.) Is there a supermarket or anything in the area? It'd probably be easier for me to pick up something from there just so it wouldn't go bad during that 2-hour ride.

    February 21, 2014

    • Sweetie B.

      We'll make food runs, I'm sure.

      February 22, 2014

  • Eric L.

    This will be my second time coming. I will definitely attend again. I hope to have a lot of fun joining you fellow fans this saturday :)

    2 · February 19, 2014

  • Jeff (Spitfire) B.

    well my truck is in the shop so I maybe late or not be able to make it.
    :(

    February 21, 2014

    • Sweetie B.

      It'll go late. I'll make sure of it. And we're going to have a night lava monster game too. Be there.

      February 22, 2014

  • Bryce L.

    I would text Brett for a lift-request, but for some reason, I don't want to get up early tomorrow morning. I might not be able to come. :(

    February 21, 2014

    • Sweetie B.

      Car's full anyway. Sorry about that, bro.

      February 22, 2014

  • Amanda

    If I can find a ride, I'll be there. :3

    February 15, 2014

    • Amanda

      Yay, thanks so much! I'll bring my trading cards and such along with me and Apples to Apples (only have the travel pack, sadly.)

      February 21, 2014

    • Daniel Philip C.

      Awesome, I'll PM you my number so you can give me directions

      February 22, 2014

  • PsychicWalnut

    Bah... it's on the same day as the LA County one. When did this move to the 4th Saturday of the month? (and here I was hoping to go to both this month)

    February 10, 2014

    • Gabe G.

      Where can I find out about the LA County meetup? It might be closer to Van Nuys... No offense.

      February 21, 2014

    • PsychicWalnut

      LA meetup is the very next day. Check the group calendar for the details.

      February 22, 2014

  • Eric L.

    Would go but a strong suggestion: for more people to be able to come, would be nice for at least 2 week notice before the actual meetup. That way I/we can plan out work schedules. Thanks you

    February 21, 2014

    • Eric L.

      I mean i cant go now

      February 21, 2014

  • Daniel Philip C.

    Does anyone need a ride? I live in Laguna Niguel and I can pick up anyone that lives in between the meet up and my place.

    1 · February 21, 2014

    February 21, 2014

  • Eri H.

    February 21, 2014

    • Eri H.

      February 21, 2014

  • Josh

    What's the food situation? I want to know what niche to fill. I already have the ginger beer (not alcoholic).

    February 21, 2014

  • Bree

    1 · February 21, 2014

  • Tigerlilly

    So i see that there are a few who need a ride to the event. I live in Oceanside and am making my way up, If you live on the way and are not to difficult to find or can meet me somewhere easy to find i have no issues picking you up and Visa Versa. I have two spots in my car and if you don't mind riding with a child then lemme know! I have no problem picking people up, as long as you can pitch in a little for gas ^.^ It doesn't have to be much, i have a Prius :P

    1 · February 21, 2014

    • Tigerlilly

      Hmmm, well if you want, you can email me your address so i can look it up on a map :)

      February 21, 2014

    • Tigerlilly

      My Email is : [masked] ^.^ hope to hear from you

      1 · February 21, 2014

  • Carlos P.

    also! since i've run into a a little problem i can't do much food this time around other than the huge batch of my spiced mash potatoes! so i'll check the food situation and see how we're doing and if it gets to it i'll ask everyone to please contribute, you don't have to do and anything you do contribute is fine no matter even if it's change, so that we may do a food run to one of the local stores and get some more supplies to keep this thing running with some type of food! so if you can help out with anything please do, it'll be greatly appreciated by everyone!

    1 · February 21, 2014

    • Tigerlilly

      I can bring hot dogs and buns!! ^.^ There is a grill at the park right? I don't cook all that well but i can try :P also condiments i can do too

      1 · February 21, 2014

  • Eri H.

    If I get a ride I will bring cookies... And I have a lot of my art prints for sale~ and i'll be taking commissions as well...

    February 21, 2014

  • Aurë E.

    Do a lot of people actually stick around until 10:00? When do most people leave?

    February 21, 2014

    • PsychicWalnut

      Well, the usual start time was later, but I'm sure some of us will be there that early. And yes. It's typical for a group of us to stay until 10pm. I've seen 10-15 stay that late. But you can come and go as you please.

      February 21, 2014

    • Sweetie B.

      Normally most ponies seem to get there around 11am.

      February 21, 2014

  • James H.

    And if u see me pleases say hi im shy so i might be hiding

    1 · February 17, 2014

    • Noah W.

      It's ok man! I am usually just as shy as you are to be honest, and when I first started attending these meetups I was so scared and sick to my stomach meeting new people that I never met before but in the end it's good to talk and socialize with people with common interest. After watching the show and after how much I enjoyed it I wanted to make more brony friends because I have few to no friends in and outside high school to hang out with or to do stuff with, so I found this site and could finally find an easy way to enjoy activities with! but anyways you are always welcome to come hang out with us <3

      February 20, 2014

    • OddVespers

      Don't worry about it, mate! Everypony is real friendly. Smile, say hi: you'll get the same back :) Especially from me, though I tend to hope around from one person to the next faster than Pinkie... But, I will be nothing but kind, mate. Come talk to me and say "'sup" if I don't recognize you. I'll be cosplaying as Suri Polomare. See ya tomorrow!

      1 · February 21, 2014

  • Bailey K.

    I'll come after 1pm.

    4 · February 19, 2014

    I'm going to bringing my daughter who is just short of two. I hope that is okay, i think she will enjoy it, she loves MLP

    7 · February 20, 2014

    • Noah W.

      go ahead!, I think she'll like it to ^^, I don't think anyone else will mind.

      February 20, 2014

    • Sweetie B.

      I'm sure you'll both fit right in. Just be sure to bring sunscreen.

      February 21, 2014

  • Bryce L.

    Once again, I'm gonna need a ride from San Clemente (and hopefully vice versa) if I'm to show up.

    February 21, 2014

  • James H.

    I almost fergot to ask is there an entry fee to get into the meeting?

    February 17, 2014

    • Noah W.

      1 · February 20, 2014

  • James H.

    Just saw how far it really is fom me and sadly im not sure i could make it :.(

    February 17, 2014

    • Noah W.

      It's cool dude, there will be plently of other meetups and potluck meetups to come to in the future, If it's giving you too much anxiety, too far from where you are or if you have something else you need to do then you should probably wait until you can or are ready to attend, no rush ^^

      February 20, 2014

  • Showtime (.
