A very big thank you to everyone who was able to make it to our meeting last night. I was very happy to meet a handful of new people interested in our club and I hope to see you all at more events.
A couple announcements from the meeting:
1) Art Workshop- We will be having an introduction to drawing ponies Sunday, September 7th from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm in room 2205 A, MU Student Center. A short intro to pony art will be led by our resident artist, Cassie. We will provide supplies or you can bring you own.
2) Tumblrpon- For those who previously participated in this activity or those who are interested, we are combining it with the Art Workshop. We will discuss the changes to tumblrpon and assigning updates to anyone interested after the ‘how-to’ introduction.
3) T-Shirt Design Contest- If you have an idea that you think would be a cool shirt for the club to have, we are having a T-Shirt design contest for the Fall 2014 Semester. Those who pay their dues will be able to buy t-shirts later this semester. Start working on your designs now, we will open submissions in two weeks, and decide on a design before the end of September.
Don’t worry about skill or experience. Anypony can do art.
This Thursday we are having a Welcome Back meeting at the MU Student Center at 5:30 PM in room 2206A. We will be introducing the new Officers as well as discussing our plans for the next semester, so think about what kind of activities you might want to have this Fall.
Those of you who have been with us before know that we have (optional) dues of $10 that we will start collecting. Perks of dues include special club buttons and being able to order t-shirts.
Monday is Labor Day, so no activities, however, Thursday, September 4 we will have a Board Game Night in the Student Center main floor starting at 5:00 pm. Games provided include Munchkin, Settlers of Catan, Zombie Dice, and others. Please feel free to bring your favorite board game and join us!
Ain’t no party like a Pinkie Pie party…
As you all know, classes are starting up again in just a month. We will be welcoming in a new set of officers who are already planning Fall activities for you all to enjoy. We are tentatively planning a Welcome Back pizza party for Thursday, August 28 in the MU Student Center, room 2206 A, so be sure to put that on your calenders.
Before we plan the rest of the Fall activities, we would love if you could fill out a quick 3 question survey so we know what you all want to do this semester. You can take the survey here.
Best pony would fill out our survey.
We regret to inform you that the LAN part we’d been planning for this week has to be cancelled. Apparently the university reserves all the study rooms for finals week to let anyone use them for studying.
So, instead we are going to have an impromptu Board Game Night tonight. We’ll be in our usual place in the Student Center starting at 6 pm. Hope to see you there!
And a reminder for those doing Alpine Tower, meet at Epple Field by 1pm this Saturday May 10.
University reserves rooms and doesn’t tell anyone?
As we near the end of the semester we decided to host one last board game night this Friday, May 2nd in the Student Center main area at 5:30 pm. Bring your favorite board game and stop by! (For you MLP CCG players, feel free to bring your decks as well.)
Bring your game face.
Now, for anyone who likes drawing ponies, we are having a special edition of tumblrpon on Sunday at noon in SSC 2206. We are doing this meeting like an art workshop, anyone who wants to come is free to do so. We will provide paper, pencils, and other art materials as well as reference sheets for everyone’s OC. It’ll be a fun way to practice your art skills. (While you’re here you should check out our tumblr and send us asks to answer at the meeting)
For those who haven’t checked out our tumblr yet… shame.
Due to having our Alpine Tower event today, there will be no Tumblr meeting. Sorry for the late notice on this, thought we’d sent out a post about it already. If you’re going to the event, we’ll see you there!
Also, for this week’s fanfic we are going to be listening to The Vinyl Scratch Tapes along with reading a couple short stories. The Vinyl Scratch Tapes are a series of fan made, talk show style podcasts featuring DJ Pon-3 and Octavia as the show hosts. There are 4 episodes that we will be listening to for the assignment, which total to 1 hour and 22 minutes. So be sure to start them early!
This is the thumbnail for the official episodes. Pretty awesome.
The playlist for the episodes is linked on the Current Assignments page of FanFic Central, here.
Please join us tonight at 7:00 pm in the St. Louis/Kansas City Rooms in the MU Student Center for our end-of-year officer elections and a free pizza party! We need everyone to come out and vote for next year’s leadership, so please make every effort to attend!
Thanks for a great year, everyone. Let’s make sure next year is even better!
