LAST UPDATED: 05/07/2012.
After another month of planning and help from several other people, the next Scottish Edinburgh brony meet up will be held on Saturday 14th of July! The last one was a great success and hopefully this one will be even better!
Here are the main features of the meet up:

from the show and fan made videos
---Affordable food and drink avalible from the Meadows Bar. (if your a student, bring your card as you'll get a student discount.)
---An MLP related quiz!
---The chance to show off your artwork and anything else that you’d like to show off! (fan made plushies, cosplays, covers of FiM songs, anything.)
---Karaoke sing alongs to FiM’s best songs from season 1 and 2!
---We will also being doing out own version of the popular BBC Radio 4 quiz panel show Just a Minute! However, this will have a pony theme to it.Incase you are unsure of what Just a Minute actually is, heres a video example from the show when, taken from the first episode of it's BBC Two speical edtion, when it was broadcast on TV for two weeks:
We are currently looking for panelist's for the show, so if you are interested, then ask us in the email addresses below.
The function room is booked from Noon to 10pm, so the initial meet up time
is at 10:30am
and the meet up point is at the same place as last time; the Livingstone monument right next to the Scot monument (pictures follow if unsure of location).http://www.bwsitemanager.co.uk/Websites/83463/htdocs/images/scott_monument_55923.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/RSJAQ.jpg
This makes it easy for those getting the bus or train into town to meet at a place that’s unmissable.
Sandy (WhatWhat) will wait at the Scott Monument for a total of 30 minutes
for everyone to gather. Then he will walk you all to the Meadows Bar along on Buccleuch Street. It’s about a 15 minute walk. Where Quill of Manehattan and Soundcheck will have everything set up.

As we get closer to the date, more updates will be posted here, so check back often for the latest information on the meet.On more thing, a couple of important information here:

--We have not set an age limit and although under 18s are allowed in the fuction room, they are not
allowed in the bar. To be on the safe side, if you are over 18 but don't look it, bring your ID (such as British (or your own nation's passport if your not British) to prove you are over 18.)(Information for people who are not British but attending the meet: The legal age to drink alcohol in Scotland is 18 and the legal age to smoke tobaco is 16. Under 18s are not allowed in bars (the function room is alright, though.)).
---Brining your own food is allowed, but it can only be consumed after 18:00. This is when the Meadow's Bar kicthen closes. Before 18:00, we are encouraged to buy food from the bar.
