Hello small horse fans. I realize that last week I said my school’s Brony club would be doing a chalking every Saturday and that I would upload pictures for all to see. This most recent Saturday we didn’t chalk because we
forgot were busy with other things. However, today was the school-wide activities fair, where every club gets to promote itself to the Carnegie Mellon campus as a whole. Since we’re officially a club this year, we got a table.
The turnout and interest was beyond my expectations. We had a mailing list sign up sheet, where interested people could put their names, email, and favorite pony. Over 30 people put their names down, and probably 70% of them put down a favorite pony. For the record, our club meetings usually have 7 people. (If you’re curious what the tally for the favorite pony section was, look in this spoiler)
Rainbow Dash – 4
Pinkie Pie – 4
“All of them” – 3
Twilight – 2
Applejack – 1
Rarity – 1
Derpy – 1
Lyra – 1
Fluttershy had 5 votes, but two of them were from the same guy. I guess Fluttershy fans like to do that sort of thing in polls.
Most people just walked up, asked “What do you guys do?”, listened to us explain that we watched FiM, became happy, then signed up and walked away. The people that were interested were quite diverse as well, and we probably got the most requests of any club to have pictures taken with/of us. At least two guys asked if we got stoned when we watched it, which we don’t (they lost interest after we told them that). Overall, the brony fandom at this school is booming, it seems. We shall see how many people actually come to club on Saturday, though.
Oh,and here’s the poster we are currently using across campus:
(Pinkie Pie was already taken surprisingly quickly)
