Galacon AMA Followup


Greetings, everyone!

We want to say thanks – The AMA on Saturday was a good success and quite a few of you came and asked fun questions. Not even the new episode could distract you, and for that we say thanks – Your interest matters!

We are not going to beat around the bush, so here are the important bullet points:

  • GalaCon 2014 will be on the 2./3. of August. BronyCon and us tried our hardest, as promised, but due to limited date choices with our venues and school holidays, etc. BronyCon and GalaCon will be on the same weekend again. We are as bummed about that as you are, but we gottta make do!
  • The venue will be the Forum am Schlosspark in Ludwigsburg again. A few kinks that need ironing out aside, the Forum had everything a convention could ask for, so we are going to return in 2014! We will book more room to make sure we got the space we need, especially in terms of seating for the main events.
  • In terms of attendee cap, we are shooting for 1200 tickets. Maybe a bit more, maybe a bit less, but 1200 is what we are going for as our maximum.
  • Ticket sale will start in January or February. We are still looking into the specifics, but saving up that Christmas cash won’t be a bad idea, either way. We will offer crowdfunding and sponsor tickets again, too – And with much better handling of the rewards and a better printing service.
  • Our first announced community guest is Pixelkitties! She already made a wonderful contribution to GalaCon 2013 with her autograph card designs, but she’s going to do that and so much more for 2014. You can look forward to seeing her and her fabulous art in person!
  • Events will be bigger and better! Or, at the very least, that’s what we’re working steadily towards – Among the things you can expect are a completely revamped cosplay contest that’s easier to enter, a silent auction to accompany the main auction, more art panels, a bigger podcast panel, and more!
  • We hope to upload the missing 2013 panel recordings around New Year’s at the latest. Other obligations and a severe underestimation of the material to go through made this so slow. Apologies for that, we really didn’t mean to take so long.

If you want to read the AMA for yourself, here you go:

We hope you have a great remaining 2013 – We are working hard to bring you a great 2014.

Best wishes,

Your GalaCon Team

The Convention Scene

BABSCon Has a New Schmoopy-Doo…Peter New!

Happy Boxing Day from all of us at BABSCon! We have one last gift for all you before we all abscond to Mexi…I mean enjoy a bit of well deserved rest! What’s that, you wonder? Eeyup, it’s none other than the voice of Ponyville’s apple-farming stallion of shy wisdom, Peter New!

The latest in our cabal of Canadian VA’s, Peter is an enormously talented actor, writer and film producer. Although most renowned for his role as the lovable Big Macintosh in My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic, he has an extensive list of credits in animation, movies, and video games. His range includes Littlest Pet Shop’s own Worrying Mongoose™ Sunil, Ian Vashti of Mobile Suit Gundam 00, and most curiously, a number of angry space orks from Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War.

Peter has also performed supporting roles in American and Canadian television series, most notably Fringe and Smallville, and has helped produce numerous independent short films.

Personable, kind, and funny, we’ll be looking forward to having Peter as a part of the BABSCon family.

Won’t you help us raise this barn at our first reunion?

The Bay Area Brony Spectacular (BABSCon) is the first convention devoted to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic in the San Francisco Bay Area, and will be held on April 18-20, 2014 at the SFO Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, CA. Contact [email protected] for more information!
