  Pony Canoe Update and Survey

New announcement from the PonyCon/SalvageCon team

Summary: PonyCon AU is under new management, they're taking a year off to plan and asking for your input, link to the survey here

Disclaimer - I'm not involved with this, just spreading the word


Hi everyone! It’s been ages since we had an update so let’s get this rolling.

You may have been wondering if Seaponies Paradise was the end for PonyCon AU. Well, it has meant a bit of hard thinking and changes for us as a team. Fortunately the fundraiser went well and we were able to end with everything settled.

The biggest change is one you probably can tell by the bottom banner. SalvageCon has officially taken the reigns from AusCons with running these events. Hopefully knowing that there has been a transition from AusCons to SalvageCon (and not someone that you haven’t dealt with before) it will assure you that PonyCon AU is in safe hands and will be back and running soon.

This however does mean a few people have left the team. We’d like to thank all those who have worked so hard in the past and wish them well in their new adventures.

As for PonyCon Au itself, we are taking a break this year to allow everyone to settle into their new roles. However, with a new team comes some questions. We’ve run cons before but these have included things we wanted. However this fandom isn’t about us, it’s about everyone. We’d like you to have a say about the future of PonyCon AU. If you could fill out the quick survey below it will help us to make some important decisions about any future events.

Lastly we do need help and are looking for a new pool of volunteers. If you are interested please contact us at HERE.

Kind Regards,

The New PonyCon Exec

  Bronies For Good Charity Album - SoK 5: Building Bridges

Posted by ExplodingPonyToast

Hey guys! There doesn't tend to be a lot of news nowadays so I thought I might raise some awareness for this fantastic cause in case anybody is interested.

Bronies For Good's Seeds of Kindness project has been running for quite some time now, raising money for charity to help better people's lives by releasing compilation albums of music created by the community. All the money they raise will go towards the Against Malaria Foundation.

The donation page, along with the album and some more information on the project, is available here:

The album features my track along with 18 others from amazing artists like Francis Vace, Reverbrony, Silver Paradox, Progressive Element and more! If you'd like to download the album you can do so by ticking the button saying 'I have donated or pledge to donate' after which you'll have the option to download FLAC versions of this album and all the previous ones. If you want to donate then that's fantastic as it's for a good cause, but it's certainly not required if you can't.

Here is a preview video of some of the songs on the album:

Here is a list of the songs you'll find on the album:

And here are some of the individual tracks from the album released by the artists on YouTube:
Spoiler :
ExplodingPonyToast - Malus

Wind Wolf - Travel With the Wind

Silver Paradox - Justify

MrMehster - Mad About It (feat. N. Hollow & Vinyl Darkscratch)

SDreamExplorerS - Sharing the Emptiness

Sights Unseen - Building Bridges

Hope you enjoy!

Hey everyone,

We're almost there (almost two weeks to go!). We'd love to see you at SalvageCon and celebrate Ponified's Official Card release with us!

(And before you ask, here's a sneak peak at this convention's card)

9 Days to go! We can't believe it either!

In honour of making it to single digits in the countdown we're going to answer some of the most common questions:

Where can I buy tickets?
At the door on the day, we're not doing presales

What about Sunday?
While we officially have nothing on there are a few of us that want to meet up (after we wake up). If enough people seem interested we'll post a link to the event.

**Please keep in mind this is not an official event and is not part of the convention, this is just people meeting together in a park**

Where is the convention?
It is at the Matthews Pavillon at UNSW Randwick.

If you have any more questions, please post below and let us know.

More SalvageCon announcements!

[Image: vsgSc1I.jpg]

Hi Everyone,

Tonight's the biggest announcement yet!

We're announce the second of our special guests: Peter New.

He’ll be dropping in via video link to discuss the show and check in on the shenanigans. You’ll be able to ask questions as well as to learn more about his craft.

For those who don’t know Peter, here’s a short bio:

Peter New is an actor, voice actor and writer. He has over 80
professional credits including: Motive, Delete, Fringe, Mr Young, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Lost Treasure of the Grand Canyon, Psych, Men In Trees and Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. He has voiced many cartoon characters, from ‘Evan’ in Barbie Thumbelina, to ‘Ian Vashti’ in Gundam00, ‘Lunk’ in Powerpuff GirlsZ, but is most well known as 'Sunil' in Littlest Pet Shop, and ‘Big Macintosh’ in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Other voice credits include InuYasha, Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War, Sushi Pack, Fantastic Four, Rekkit Rabbit, Martha Speaks, Dino Train, Goola City and Need 4 Speed: Hot Pursuit.

Peter began acting with a sketch comedy troupe called The Legend of Bonefish, who disbanded twenty years ago, although some of those old sketches have sprung up on YouTube, starring middle-aged versions of themselves. Weird. He has broad interests, from astronomy to photography, architecture to environment. He plays a little piano, a bit of guitar, some ukulele, and a passel of drums. One day he wants to cut a record. He enjoys cooking, but more than that, eating. Yummy.
