BronyFest 2013

More information can be found at:

http://www.brony-fest.com

 

I don't know whether or not I personally will be going, but it's the first of the two DFW conventions of the year, and it's only slated for 2500 people, so we're gonna have to decide fast if we're going or not because this is... well... Dallas.

    The con was pretty fun. It was my first one, so I can't really compare it to any others, but there is one thing that I didn't quite like. That was a lack of a schedule. You didn't know what was going on the next day until the morning of said day, which was quite frustrating. Another thing I didn't like was the fact that there really wasn't that many people there, maybe 360 or so, but not more. Besides this, it was generally well put together and fun to attend overall. The smaller size did have a plus to it as well, because there were the same people in a place, giving you time to make even closer bonds with them.

    The entire convention was fantastic. I never got together with anyone on here, but for my first con, I had a major blast. I met a lot of really awesome people and actually felt accepted, sort of like family. DEFINITELY going next year!

    Just a question about the convention/meetup, are we having a meetup at the convention and going as a group? Or in the middle of the convention we meetup for lunch I suppose? Or are we just gonna go "at the gala" style where we all go our thing haha :3

      Can someone bring a laptop for my speakers to work unless I hafta find a wallport to plug in, they're really small speakers but there's a reason I wanna bring 'em, right David? ^^

      March 27, 2013

    • Rytex (Trey B.

      I'm bringing my laptop. Productive time killing between panels, y'know?

    I am going to sound 100% stupid for asking this, but will the Con start Friday morning or around noon? I just can't seem to find a times for it. I have already got the tickets so I am fine. I just want to know if I should go down Thursday night or Friday morning. I have a 2hour drive to get down there anyway.

    March 26, 2013

    • Rytex (Trey B.

      I'll probably spend Thurs. night down there too.

      March 27, 2013

    • Tyler Rex H.

      So where will we meet at? Will we gather somewhere Saturday morning? This will be my 2nd meetup I will have gone to. Mainly since I will be going to the G.I.Joe movie meet up. So I am very new to this.

      March 27, 2013

  • (J.T.A.C.) Johnathon Cummings changed the time from 7:00 PM to 10:00 AM

  • DoTheDaringDew

    Aw hell yeah! My friends and I have a hotel room there, so if anyone from the meetup group wants to get together and hang out at some point, I am totally fine with that! One of the main reasons I'm going to is to advertise and play the brony music I just started writing, so I will most definitely be out and about there.

    Is it possible we could move this to saturday so I can be with both the NTB and the DFWB?

    March 7, 2013

    • (J.T.A.C.) Johnathon C.

      I meant for the meetup at Bronyfest...or does it matter?

      March 23, 2013

    • Rytex (Trey B.

      I don't think it matters, personally. I mean, the time I posted up there is essentially a filler, and it's on Friday night. By Saturday, we should have a schedule of events, so we just show up and have fun for the day.

      As for the BoNT meeting up, well, I suggested a short lunch on Saturday to take a break from con action, you know? But other than that, we just chill with our brethren and pony on.

      March 24, 2013

  • Tyler N.

    This will be my first convention ^^" hoh man this is gonna be awesome~!

    March 9, 2013

    • Rytex (Trey B.

      I'll be honest, I don't expect too much out of this one. While with Brony Fan Fair we had Celestia Radio, Rina-Chan, Midnight Magic, PonyKart, etc. to draw people in (and it drew far more people than expected or accommodated for), the only real thing BronyFest has going for them is Matt Hill.

      Now, Nightmare Nights Dallas seems to be doing a good job in getting high-profile show people (Libman, Wootie, etc.) and high-profile fandom people (Pixelkitties). It'll probably be the second-best Texas Con of the year, after Fiesta Equestria.

    It's too far plus that toll road unless someone can give me a ride.

    The new hotel has been announced. It is at the Hilton Garden Inn at Lewisville.

    I personally will be staying at some relatives' (because it's free).

    Also, I have heard no response about the lunch idea. Anypony open to a Saturday afternoon lunch somewhere cheap and quick to take a break from the action?

    March 2, 2013

  • March 2, 2013

  • Rytex (Trey B.

    They have moved to a hotel because of how many people decided to go. That being said, I will edit the location as soon as I know the details.

    February 27, 2013

    • Rytex (Trey B.

      Well, they have registration forms and member passes, which I don't know if they're the same thing or not. But apparently, they only set aside 2500 member passes, which should have accounted for the Med Center, but so many people registered that they outgrew the place. Whatever that means.

      February 28, 2013

    • Rytex (Trey B.

      Believe me, I don't believe they have either.

  • Rytex (Trey B.

    I may have to bow out, simply because this is over Easter weekend, and my boss might not let me off.

    However, in the event that we are able to meet up at this event, is anyone open for a random meal on any day where we can all just chillax and take a break from the Con itself before heading back?

    I'll be driving back up for this one ^_^

  • Rytex (Trey B.

    Strong maybe. I plan on bringing a Perler Bead Pixel Art business with my brother. Problem is, LTC is the same weekend, and he's going to that. However, their group's at the same hotel I'm at over in Grapevine, by the mall.
