Some Guy Announces HorseCon by

HorseCon /)'3'(\

 In an attempt to get some of those sweet convention-goers' shekels actually make a pony convention that doesn't completely suck and bore the guests to death with generic "What's happening in Season 5?" questions, this one person figured that he might as well start his own con and cut straight to the point by simply naming it HorseCon (not officially affiliated with Horse News, as of yet). One admires his attempt to skip the bullocks, but anybody with half a testicle and a bag of cheese sticks can do that, so does it look like it'll be any good?

According to the information below the break (along with a convenient screencap of the original announcement), almost definitely so.

 Fairly minimalist for a convention announcement, true, but I believe that if we dig a bit deeper, we can find out some more detailed information about this intriguing new event; for example, the location.

 It's a well known fact that at least 75% of Rainbow Dash Network's users live in the city of Calgary, apparently the 6th most livable city according to some study I found on Wikipedia a couple months ago, so one can fairly assume that as said site's web developer RedEnchilada lives in or somewhere near that city. This would rather conveniently fill the somewhat urgent need for a pony convention in Canada's best province and gives me the excuse of living close enough to a con to warrant attending one, which already puts this miles ahead of the Glad Brony Gallopedia or whatever that one con Ren Haru keeps shilling is called.

 Some might question the steep admission price, but one must remember that Albertans are apparently richer than everybody else and that's about amount we typically pay for an ice cream cone, and maybe he'll offer a discount if you're one of his friends or show staff or something. Even if this does sound a lot, conventions are quite expensive (as our good friend Purble Tunker has pointed out countless times) and he has to pay the special guests and whatnot, so the high entry price is kind of reasonable when you realize that this is a brony convention like no other. You could always just ask a good Albertan friend to chip in if you want to attend but happen to be a cheapskate or spent most of your shekels on your great aunt's wedding gift, for example.

 So what kind of panels and events will they be holding? Since the convention is being held in RedEnchilada's upstairs living room (which must be a pretty decent size to support a convention, come to think of it), one presumes that HorseCon will most likely be a fairly casual event, where one can freely intermingle with the other guests and chat with whatever pony celebrities and show staffers happen to be attending at the time. Kind of like your average party, but with more famous people and an overabundance of Kraft Dinner, along with a decent chance of free alcohol. Maybe we can all crowd together at the end of each night and watch cheesy 80s action movies together, and since the founder writes for Equestria Gaming it's almost inevitable that the con will have some sort of video game tournament or at least a demonstration of somebody's pony fangame that they whipped together in Game Maker one Sunday afternoon.

 Sadly we cannot confirm anything about the guests or the convention's actual date, but chances are, HorseCon will be the kind of thing that the fandom has been awaiting for with baited breath ever since the first Friendship is Magic friends were made on /co/. You can also follow @RedEnchilada on Twitter or RDN for further updates on this delightful little con, if you so desire.

April Davis and her freaky incestuous redneck boyfriend are most certainly not invited to the party.

  8. "Purple Tinker" and words "good" or "friend" shouldn't be used in one sentence.
