The recovery from Otafest night, also news on what's to come

Hey everypony! Darcy here.

So. Myself and many others worked our collective flanks off to go and make a few bucks for the meet up.
Overall we made around $1300!
After deductions, (buying more buttons, giving all the artists a small share of the profit, etc... it's a big list) we have now around $750 to spend into having a huge pony fun night!

So now we need to go and choose how to spend this cash. So far the suggestions I have heard are:

- Go to the zoo
- Lasertag
- Go Karting
- Mini Golf
- Bowling

So. I will make a vote box on the side for you all to vote on which one you like to do. You have the Friday before the next meet up (The first of the month) before I close the vote box.
I will also add new ideas as they come along to the vote box. Just mention them to me on RDN, on the blag, or over Skype and I'll add them as soon as I can.


We now seem to have a relatively large Skype call going among every pony. If you want to join, do not hesitate to ask to be added into the group.


The store will take some time to put up. I'm working on it though. This is a new thing to me but we will have a official Calgary Bronies online store to sell our stuffs out to the entire world! If anyone has experience on how to set up something like a online store, please message me A.S.A.P.


PS. I will never again have a panel at the end of the night at Otafest and have to work an Artist Ally table. I'm still trying to shake off the caffeine out of my system that kept me alive for all that time.

After the Expo

Okay, first of all let me say,


I couldn't believe myself when i saw so many people at the Calgary Comic Expo. I also couldn't believe how many bronies showed up!

Mind you our very own Tera Strong was there in person. And let's not forget about John De Lancie!

Well I had a great time. And I saw lots of my friends there from both inside the meet up group and out. I was also able to make a few dollars selling a few buttons and magnets not just for our own meet up, but also for the Alberta Bronycon guys! Here is to a con just for us!

I had a few really cool experiences, like when got to shock Robert Axelrod with my copy of  the 1985 film of Alice in Wonderland where he played the Frog Footman. I'm mostly shocked he never got more attention for his roles in Power Rangers and voice acting in Cowboy Bebop and a giant list of wonderful shows he starred in!

On the pony side, getting to meet Tera was great, but I kinda locked up so I really couldn't do much but let her sign my "too many" things. I wanted to talk about so many things and just fan girl myself all over her. So I just kept it all in and just kept my composure.

I also spent too much money on my steam punk outfit ( close to $600+ dollars) but I looked so swag. I think I'll continue working on it overtime until I run out of places to equip new apparel. Or money... Whichever comes first...

I have so much to talk about but I'll stop boring you with the lame details.

Now from all the herding of the cattle in the endless lineups to the finding the most awesome thing at the vender's hall... what was your best experience there? What about your worst?
