    The 2nd Yorkshire Bronies meetup is less than 2 weeks away!
    The last meetup saw 20 attendees and we hope to have even more this time!

    - Meet in Leeds train station at 11am, outside WHSmiths (Just past the ticket barriers).
    - Lunch will be at Greggs, McDonalds or similar. We'll probably make a few stops. (Focus of this meetup is to be as cheap as possible)
    - We can hang around in the Milennium square or somewhere like that. The best part of brony meetups seems to be actually talking with other bronies!
    - Trister is writing a quiz, where you can win pony prizes! I will likely chip in to help with this soon.
    - There is a "nerd store" (damn awesome shop) called Forbidden Planet which stocks pony merch amongst other cool stuff. We'll be going there for a blind bag raid!
    - You can leave whenever you need to, but one of the Uni bronies managed to get us the top room of a bar for free! It will become available after 7pm. He also says he can accomodate a few people overnight if you wish to stay late and travel back in the morning.

    Want to go? Email me at [email protected] and I will put your name down on my attendance list. This greatly helps with organisation. Also, let me know if you wish to stay the night with Pominator from Leeds Met. Don't want anyone getting turned away now do we? D:

    Other email addresses in case you can't contact me.
    [email protected]
    [email protected] - Ask this guy about accomodation for the night!

    Discuss and suggest stuff in the chat below!

    P.S. If anyone has a small musical instrument which they can play, bring it! At the Liverpool meetup, someone brought a ukelele and we all sang so many pony songs! It was amazing!

    You already know I'm going! Looking forward to it, I'll E-mail you anyway to give you a more accurate estimate.

    I was planning on moving my thread to the confirmed events page today haha.
    Personally I would love to also help organise a bigger event. I hope after this
    one everypony will tell their friends how fun it was and invite them along too.

    I'm planning on buying everypony muffins again.

    P.S. Bring a camera!

    Out of interest, do you reckon Sheffield would be a good place for a larger meetup? It's further south, so the Midlands lot may just attend, but still in Yorkshire. If someone from Sheffield Uni put in a good word, I bet we could get a room with a projector for the day, too!

    I was talking to Purplephish20 about it. It sounds feasable!

    We'd need to get advertising this as much as possible. We want numbers pushing 50 for something like this! :D

    Just as a suggestion, if anyone owns any Magic the Gathering cards we could bring them with? If people just make a couple of random decks, so if people who don't have any can also play (don't really want any tournament grade decks :p) If no-one wants to, then ignore this, but it just seems like a good idea if we're wanting to keep the meet relatively cheap and it gives people alternatives what to do when we're in the square ^_^
    Let me know your ideas on this, as I could most likely throw together about 5-6 decent-ish decks to mess around with ^_^

    I'm planning on coming to this meet, is there anywhere you suggest I could leave a motorbike for the day/day and night, I intend to get there a bit early so i can find my way around having never been to Leeds?
    Please take that as me being interested in staying about.

    Oh goodness, let me think.

    I know there are some bike parking spots near my college, but that may be for the Art College only. Mysticolt seems to know a lot about Leeds. He just posted in the unconfirmed version of this thread if you want to ask him.
     
  11. Ahhh.... found the UKofE thread finally!
    Eeyup. Confirm!
    Anyone from sheffield heading up to leeds for this give me a nudge! we can get the same train.

    I might pop along to this with Mush in tow, assuming I can find a couple'a quid for a train ticket.

    14 confirmed as of today! Not quite as big as last time, but with luck we will get more people as the week progresses.

    It's also likely that not everyone going has sent an email to [email protected] yet. No biggie though, as we haven't booked a restaurant or anything!
