Meetup for Bronies at PAX East

XX55XXXX55XX Registered User regular
Hi, everyone!

I am a big fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and I do self-identify as a "brony". While my local meetup group here in Boston is having a PAX meet, I'm thinking about doing an even bigger meet with all of the bronies and pegasisters from both New England and outside the New England area for a huge meet. I know this will likely be a large logistical challenge, depending on how we do this, but are there others here interested in collaborating to create the best PAX East meet for bronies ever?

    Awwwww yeah MLP! I /might/ be carting my ECCC Scootaloo costume with me to PAX. Maybe.

    That aside, if you need help with meet-up space, HH is usually good for it.

    I know this is an old thread, but if there is still any interest at all even if it's a small meetup with just a couple people, I would still like to support it. Any interest at all?

    Not sure if XX55XX is still planning on anything, but a few people from the MLP:FiM Thread here on the PA forums will be attending PAX East and have already setup a time to meetup at.

    We will meetup on Friday at 4pm-6pm in the Handheld Lounge. Just to say hi for a bit and get to know each others favorite ponies. I know I'll be giving away some pony swag and I might even do some pony sketches or something. Anyway just thought I'd mention it here.

    I would love to meet up with any other bronies. I'm going on Sunday with a friend and would be up to meet at any time.

    4pm Friday. That is when the PAX Pokémon League will be in the Handheld Lounge. They'll also be there 4pm Saturday and 2pm Sunday.
    That's where I'll be. It's one of THE things I go to PAX East for. (I'll be the Team Rocket Grunt with a yellow labrador puppet. Carry, my puppet, is with me at every con I go to. I've had him for over a decade. People actually recognize him before they recognize me.)

    Good to hear, I'll be sure to stop by probably in the later half of the meetup if there are still people around. There's a panel I want to attend that will keep me occupied until five.

    Hey guys, sorry, I've been away from the forums for a little while.

    I think Saturday is the best day for a meet, personally. I'll get in touch with the local bronies so that we can organize a huge gathering somewhere.

    I'll definitely try to stop by. I tend to lose track of time at PAX though, with how wonderful everything is.

    This is my first time going to PAX East. So excited! Anyway, myself and two of other gals I'm going to PAX with are doing MLP co-play. Maybe we'll randomly see some of you around there. Be on the look out for Applejack (my cosplay), Twilight Sparkle & Pinkie Pie. If you guys getting something going for Saturday, maybe I'll try and say hello. :)

    Over 30K lifeforms in the building at peak times of the con. To find any ONE being is like trying to find ONE needle in TEN haystacks.

    Brohoofs coming your way. look out for either a 11th doctor or just some geek wearing a stargate jacket. Also, I remember seeing a Vinyl Scratch cosplay last year. wanted to show some friends of mine but looks like nobody had a camera while they were around. Makes me feel guilty for shying away and keeping my camera holstered.

    Alright, me and a guy from the local group are going to try and get a big get-together together, but we are unsure about the logistics. We'll likely announce something on EQD, and of course, I'll announce something here and on Facebook.

    I wasn't planning on it but I might bring along my Spitfire costume now if mlp won't be as shunned as I thought XD (Though still a little concerned since wings and crowds don't mix well and they're kinda beat up from my last outing)

    I hear ya. costumes with appendages tend to have problems. my friend is going as a jedi and i told him to leave the robe behind because it would get stepped on. Saturday is definitely a day to be cautious, too.

    If you haven't been to PAX East before, plan on there being *really* packed crowds. I'd be wary of wearing costumes unless you don't mind hanging around the sides of the main hall or not going in there at all (though sometimes that doesn't matter, either). The convention center is packed FULL and there's tons of people moving about at all times. I'd costume at other events, but personally, I'd not do them at PAX East. That said, people do (I've seen it) so it's really up to you.

    around 30-40K in the building at the peak times of the con.

    And if you are still planning on meeting at the Handheld Lounge at 4pm on Friday or Saturday, that is when the PAX Pokémon League takes over that area. Also at 2pm on Sunday.

    The meetup on Friday 4-6 is nothing long term, it will just be me and maybe two others from the MLP FiM thread at the handheld lounge giving away pony swag. You are more than welcome to discuss who your favorite pony is and why this show is so damn great. I can also draw up some pony requests, but I doubt they will be anything worthwhile.

    Well, my comrade has not gotten back to me, so I'm unsure if we will be doing a big meet and greet brony event like we did last year. Last year's meet only lasted thirty minutes before everyone jumped off in their own directions, and it was mostly bronies from the Boston area, with some people from other parts of the country.

    Hey everyone

    I mentioned this on my EQD Post a few days ago but we will be planning a larger meetup on Sat March 23rd for tournament play for all MLP fans. The link to the meetup event is here: http://www.meetup.com/Bronies-Boston/events/86252692/?hidePromoBar=true

    Are you guys interested in tournament play for MLP prizes? My email is sullmaster41@gmail.com. I can put final rosters and schedules together for games like SSB, Halo, and the new GoW game just to name a few.

    Evening everyone,

    First off I am new to this forum so hey guys you excited for PAX East next week?? Boston is my hometown and I am very excited our city is hosting this event again!

    Our meetup group Boston Bronies is looking to put together a large MLP meetup with our fellow Bronies traveling in from across the country. I understand there is possibly one meetup on Friday night at 4:00 in the handheld gaming area, but we are looking to put together some console gaming tournaments for Friday and Saturday night for anyone interested in joining us. I will be donating some MLP prizes to the winners but donations are appreciated as well if anyone would like to add to the prize pool.

    Saturday we are also planning on meeting up for lunch and drinks either in the food court or possibly MJ O'Connor's in the evening after the main show winds down. More details can be found at our meetup

    Please comment here or email me if you wish to join us for tournament play as I will be putting together a signup sheet. Some games we have in mind include Super Smash Bros Brawl, Halo 4, and Gears of War: Judgment.

    We hope to see you there at PAX East! Have a great time everyone!

    Okaaaaaayyyyy, just saw the date and times you're planning for a meet up. Here is the schedule for all of the other meet ups that weekend. http://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/175051/tournaments-handheld-has-them-v2013-also-meet-ups-galore As well as the tournament schedule if you don't want to bump up against anything large.

    On a more personal note, can't drag the Scootaloo stuff with me :/

    Thanks for the heads up Scoots. :bz
    The meetup on Friday at 4PM should only last like an hour or less, nothin' huge. If you plan to visit for some pony swag or talk about the show, look for the hispanic dude wearing a white Penny Arcade hoodie and/or PAX East scarf. I will also be carrying my black sketchbook. c:

    How about Mario Party or something fun like that? Just fun things that even the beginners have a fighting chance at. But still, it is all in good fun.

    Alright guys I'll be sporting either my Derpy in a box shirt or my all over Luna shirt. Come say hello if you spot me. I'll drop by on Friday in the handheld area tomorrow to say hello, please don't be shy! As far as gaming I'll be playing Smash Bros Brawl and maybe some Halo if you want to join me!

    I always buy tons of shirts at PAX, and just saying I'm a big tall guy isn't going to help. I don't really have any other identifiable features. I really hope they have some pony shirts this year.

    Not sure if you've seen the welovefine booth but they have a lot there. I need to avoid that booth for the rest of the weekend or I'll end up broke.
