    Some interesting news has just come to light. Apparently Galacon will be hosting it's very own buckball tournament. There's more info about it on their website.

    Hey there pony fans!

    If you're heading to GalaCon this month, I've got a great deal for you. I'm currently open for commissions for con badges.

    They look like this:

    Like what you see? You can get one yourself for the low price of £10 - and if you're going to the con as well, I'll also print and laminate it for you so you can get it from me in person!

    Contact me by PM here or on Deviant Art ( http://bethiebo.deviantart.com/ ) if you're interested :)

    Galacon us only three weeks away. I won't lie but I'm so looking forward to going to it (even if it will leave a massive dent in my wallet! )

    Galacon is only 12 days away! So looking forward to it!! If anyone still wants a con badge from me by the way, please see my post further up this page for examples etc. and contact me before Friday 21st Jul. I need to get them printed and made next week so if I receive any more badge commissions before Friday then that will give me time to get them all done before travelling to Germany!

    Hopefully this time next week, I will have just enjoyed a nice bite to eat in Stuttgart Gardens with some of you lot.

    The hype is on, The only thing I need to sort out is Heathrow Airport Car Parking.. Annoyingly the Premier Inn I stay at the night before isn't doing the Purple Parking anymore which I'm a little disappointed about.

    Still, can't wait to be back in Ludwigsburg, just 5 more days of Work to deal with first :p

    Hey guys, just a weird question, is there any bars, pubs, restaurants etc in Ludwigsburg that show sports on TV? As the Hungarian grand prix is on that weekend and I would like to watch it as I don't get to watch many live races due to my job trade.

    There is the Sportcafé Markthalle (Google Maps) (website, German). Looks like a pretty decent pub, I can't believe I've never noticed it before.
    But, they are only open from 5pm onwards. I'm guessing that would be too late if you want to watch live F1?

    Not sure where else would be best… maybe in hotel bars? Failing that, there will definitely be plenty of places in central Stuttgart. Will let you know if I see/think of anything!

    Many people gather at the Towers Irish Pub from around 6pm on the Friday. (I'll probably only swing by briefly myself though.)

    @Eunos the Fool, @moody magpie :
    With some other bronies at Wilhelma Zoo near Cannstatt. We will head back to Hauptbahnhof around 3pm for the beer garden, if that suits you we could meet there?
