I'm Joel, also known as MachinePony on UKofEquestria. I have been part of the Brony Community for the past five years but this will be my first time attending UKPonycon this weekend coming. Originally from Birmingham, I had moved from Derbyshire to Staffordshire last year and had been to many meets across England over the years, including Yorkshire, Manchester, Nottingham, Birmingham and Wolverhampton. I had even organised my own brony meets in Derbyshire and Staffordshire.
Also well as being a long-term member of the MLP fandom, I also have interests in Anime, Metal Music, Computer Games, Movies, Comics, and other TV shows such as Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, Adventure Time, Gravity Falls and Rick and Morty. My hobbies include drawing, gaming, and attending gigs, concerts and conventions.
I'm looking forward to meeting everyone at the convention this weekend, as well as what is selling at the stalls. I'm familiar with Bristol as my sister lives there and been on holiday there last august. However, due to my sister coming back late from work on Friday night, I had to make a last minute booking at a hostel within the city centre. I wonder if any other attendees will be staying at the Rock n Bowl motel this weekend as I don't want to stick out like a sore thumb there with my MLP t-shirts and merchandise I brought from the convention.
Anyway, looking forward to seeing you guys this weekend coming.
