So now that Hiatus is...hopefully...ending, the conventions are starting to come out with more info. First up is the Horsefucker Cruise Project - aka "SeaBronies" which surfaced in response to that cruise scam we stomped a few weeks back. They're working on making a crusie meetup for pony folk, and just announced 2 con orgs manning up the organizational parts.
But that's not all that came out of the convention scene.
The French are getting in on this too.
Recently announced is a new convention out of Toulous France called "Pony South". Here's what they have to say:
What is PonySouth ?PonySouth is a French convention for adult fans of My Little Pony : Friendship is Magic happening in Toulouse (France), the 18th and 19th of July 2015.Our goal is to bring together French fans and the best French content creators.So if you're one of our many French readers who also doesn't want to mingle with the uncultured swine in the US or the UK and find German sausage detestable, looks like this is the one for you.
Lastly is a convention in Texas that we rarely touch on that held a virtually unattended AMA on Reddit today, in which they announced 3 guests and also declared themselves "the largest pony convention in Texas". We attempted to ask them "since when?", but the nazi moderators have most accounts that have posted HN links in the past banned from the site.
In the course of 2 hours the thread attracted a total of 6 comments, 2 of which were invisible, 2 were the staff expressing confusion about the reddit accounts, and another apologizing for the lack of responses.
Coming up this weekend: Ponycon Australia this weekend (Feb 21 - 22), and Hearths Warming Con in the Netherlands (Feb 20-21) in Hoofddorp.
Update: We have a press release from PonySouth
Living near France? Do you want to have some fun with others Bronies? PonySouth may be your next destination!
But what is PonySouth? It's a convention for fans of My Little Pony created by Harmony Evenements, a non-profit association dedicated on organizing cultural events on various themes.
Panels, conferences, rounds of My Little Karaoke, Legends of Equestria, board games, card games, a great hall of exhibitors, this is what awaits for you at PonySouth ... Isn't this awesome? And, if you need to rest a little, there's a space dedicated to relaxation where you can have a drink and/or something to eat any time during the day.
The convention will be held on https://www.google.com/, at "Le Sing Sing", 90 Chemin de la Flambère, at Toulouse in France. More than 1000m² with four rooms, a bar and a "resting area". You can see its location on a map here:
