    Discussion Thread

    Since November is forever away, Nessie’s brother, Angus, thought we should hold a summer meet up to get everyone in that convention spirit!

    You’re all invited for a picnic at The Meadows in Edinburgh on 4th July.


    Meet outside Waverley station around Princes Mall Shopping Centre at 12:00 midday. We’ll be then strolling on down to The Meadows around 12:30. We’ll be posting our location throughout, so if you’re a little late make sure you’re checking our Facebook and Twitter.

    Make sure to bring picnic blankets, food, cupcakes and whatever else you fancy. This meet is all about having fun and relaxing. There’s not a specific end time set currently, but we’ll likely be sticking around until at least 6pm.

    If you have any general suggestions feel free to mention them in the discussion thread.


    There’ll be a free badge for every attendee!

    And for the best part! We’ll be giving away a ticket to BronyScot 2015 in our epic raffle so don’t miss out!

    Remember to follow the UKofE meet guidelines at all times during the meet. This is a family friendly meet up, please be considerate of other attendees and the general public.

    Though not all rules are applicable, please be aware of our convention rules.

    After the meet up most people will probably want to go to the pub. Though the main meet is for all ages, If you intend to go to the pub afterwards please note that you must be 18 or over and have valid ID.

    Times and locations are subject to change.

    Is there any specific backup plan in the event of bad weather?

    We'll be considering that and making a contingency plan. It depends how many attendees are coming after all and quite how bad the weather is. But things should be pretty decent in July, fingers crossed!

    I'm somewhat tempted by this. I'll be in London at the time so it shouldn't be too difficult for me to get to. Looking at various transport options, it's actually cheaper even than advance train tickets to fly, although admittedly that is with Ryanair. Timings however work out nicely that I'd have enough time to fly up and return in the same day with a morning and late evening flight.

    Tempting, tempting...

    If I come, I'll be easy to spot — I'll be the one in the Irn Bru truck, with a long line of police cars behind me.

    Would the Bru's brothers have orange and blue suits?

    Great to hear everyone's excited about the summer meet! Make sure to let everyone know!

    I'm thinking I should go to this — but I'd only be able to stay until just before 4pm, if I wanted to get to the last bus home on time.

    Then again, I can always stay later and get a taxi or blag a lift... even if it does cost a dang fortune.

    Decisions, decisions...

    EDIT: Almost forgot to ask, and this is a silly question, but... what kind of things does one bring to a meet like this? Never been to one before. :D

    You can bring whatever you like! Food wise just a pack lunch for yourself, or consider bringing along stuff to share with others!

    And whatever else you want to bring for fun. Though we probably won't be able to play the CCG outside unless the wind has vanished!

    We're just two weeks away from the summer meet! Hope you're all excited!

    Wondering if there are any requests for food, because i'll try and bring some stuff that people want! Also feel free to bring stuff along as well!

    Anything but mushrooms or aubergines!
    I can't eat mushrooms :oops: and aubergines are worse than NO food! :eek:
    (I'll bring my own and a few things for sharing, too!!!)

    If I make it, which I hope to do, I'll be bringing along some sausage rolls and Scotch eggs (because every picnic I've been to has had sausage rolls and Scotch eggs). I'll also be bringing some Irn Bru - given that I have a reputation to uphold - but I'll be picking stuff up when I actually get to Edinburgh, because I doubt anyone will want stuff that's been sitting in a bag on a warm bus for over two hours. :D
