We at OmniGamer are proud to announce that we will be sponsoring an
upcoming My Little Pony fan-made event, Sac Brony Expo

This event will be held at Sacramento State University on September 14th
and will include guests like Dusty Katt AKA The World’s Manliest Brony,
musical guest Sky Bolts and more.

SBE focuses on the community of fans rather than pulling all of the My
Little Pony staff members like other cons.

OmniGamer is proud to be apart of a convention that celebrates such a
creative and loving fandom.

PS, what I am about to say is just me and not OmniGamer as a whole saying
this but I can’t resist, Scootaloo is best pony.

Expo Information

We have been getting questions for a while regarding convention information, such as where at Sac State will this be held and all that jazz. Right below should be the answers to them:

– This will be held at The Union at Sac State. Many of the first floor room have been checked out for us to use.
– The convention times will run from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
– Free Parking will be provided at Parking Structure II. It’s the structure by the Hornet Bookstore and there will be signs around the campus to guide you to the location.
– Vendors, Guests, and Volunteers will be contacted with important information. Expect those soon.

Contest Winner!

Brony Thank You Fund: DrawnCon Charity Partner

The Brony Thank You Fund is happy to announce that they have been chosen as the official charity for the upcoming DrawnCon animation convention, to be held November 2-3 in Nashua, NH. The Fund will run an auction to benefit the Derpy Hooves Animation Scholarship at CalArts on Saturday night, as well as operating a table for the entire weekend.

“We love supporting students of animation and we love Derpy, so it’s our pleasure to announce that DrawnCon’s charity auction will benefit the Brony Thank You Fund and their Derpy Hooves Scholarship,” according to a statement from the convention organizers. The Fund will begin immediately accepting donations of merchandise related to any type of Western animation, not just the usual pony gear, in keeping with the broader theme of the convention. Donations for the auction will also be accepted at the convention. All donations will be fully tax deductible, of course.

If you would like to donate something for the auction, drop a note to [email protected].
