A man once said "There are too many pony conventions". That man (who later went on to run his own) was an idiot, especially when he didn't even consider the possibility of a pony convention being held in AMSTERDAM. An Indiegogo page has sprung up for "Hearth's Warming Con 2015", a proposed pony convention in the City of Hoofddorp in the Netherlands.
That's right fucker; Hoofddorp.
That's the name of the City.
It just gets better from there.
Normally, HN doesn't get too hype for conventions this far in advance OR that far away, but for those of you who haven't already opened Google Maps to see if "Hoofddorp" is a real place or not (it is by the way), it is a 22 minute transit to the City of Amsterdam.
What's so special about Amsterdam you ask?
Are you serious? As a wise man in a bad movie once said "Amsterdam; it's like Disneyland for college students."
A society where recreational marijuana use and prostitution has been decriminalized and legal for decades, in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Or so we're told by our Dutch friends. Of course we're sure that our readers are in no way interested in spending an entire weekend in Europe, wasted in ways previously unachievable in the United States (even at LPU), It's all about the friendship...and ponies..and the wonderful European culture...and oh who are we kidding?
This convention, if successful, could literally be the high point of the 2015 convention calendar, and we support it in every way.
So, what do you have to do to make
Well currently they are trying to raise about 3000 Euro, of which they have raised about half so far.
So, throwing sheckels at them is entirely an option.
Here's what the campaign page says:
The Convention to Bridge the Gap
If you like pony conventions, 2014 is a good year for you. You can spend your entire summer traveling all over Europe for tons of pony fun. But why stop there?
In those cold winter months, Hearth's Warming Con will provide a warm and cozy environment to catch up with old friends and make new ones over the course of our two-day program.
To cover our initial costs for the venue and our legal founding, we ask for your help. Your support will help us make this convention a reality and provide an unforgettable experience for over 300 people. As an added bonus, you'll be able to get access to the convention for a special early-bird price.
The campaign has 17 days left, and HN needs its fix. So fling some Monopoly money at that Indiegogo, and we will see you at the "coffee shop".
