i am eager to announce all the info i have but at least everyone knows it will be in quebec canada so everyone can try and point themselves in that direction.

I am very interested! (Pending people across the border can drive up ;P)

I have been looking for an excuse to go to Canada again! :D I will keep track of this thread for updates (or add me to a mailing list if there is one.)

If I am able to participate (based on the time of the year) I would also be interested in a  table if there will be. ;p

I would also love to donate items to help as well (lmk what is needed). :D If you want exclusive merch like pins hit me up. I make these items on a daily basis :D

 The Canadian Pony Collectors Extravaganza are looking for talented pony customizers / artists to bring Maple to life. The goal is to showcase the amazing work done by fellow pony collectors.

Maple can be designed in any body style, gender or generation. We do ask that her hair, body color and symbols remain the traditional red and white. Donations can be an actual custom pony or a piece of artwork.

If you would like to donate a custom of Maple or a piece of artwork and have your work displayed at the event please contact me

Hello!
Don't know if you remember me from years ago, but I'm just starting to attempt a comeback and this is one of the first things I'm seeing on the Arena. I'm so thrilled for you, I remember how much you wanted this five years ago! There's so many collectors in southern Ontario who I'm sure could pop over there pretty quick. I'm just sad that I've now moved across the country myself and won't be able to attend. If there turns out to be a CPCE 2019, maybe I'll see you then!

cpce  i love it !!!! so much easier to say  :)

yeah i should have just done it 10 years ago but it is what it is... so onwards and upwards

i do wish you could make it and i do hope others will make the trip

Post by: drusilla on September 26, 2017, 06:15:08 PM
In the spirit of keeping everyone in the loop and to invite you all to be involved with this event step by step , here goes an update  :)


 I am thrilled to say I will be signing the contract on Thursday night  Sept 28 for the venue hall....  woohooo talk about getting that pony ball rolling !!!!!  once that is done i can then update the website / facebook and here with the exact date and location of this event.  :)  This will give everyone a ton of time to make plans to see if they can attend.

The bring maple to life go fund me is currently sitting at 77 Canadian dollars, we have a long way to go but at least that is started.   Thank you to those who have helped donate to make some sort of toy mascot for our event. If we do not make it for this years event we will roll over the funds and try to make it for the one after.

Total cost of this event so far as of today Sept 26 is 53.03 Canadian. Items purchased were the event banner, raffle tickets, tags and website related cost. This total will rise once the above contract is signed.  This was paid for by me and i am glad to do it .

There is going to be a huge announcement concerning the event that i think will surprise a lot of people but i'm not going to reveal anything yet.

personally i do not see anything "do not miss" there is a ton of festivals at different times during the summer,  there is la ronde the amusement park, there is old montreal with the cobble stone streets to shop on, we do have a biodome with animals,  there is granby zoo and parc safari with animals... but again all this is in different locations .
there is a 10/30 which is a huge shopping village not horribly far from the event.

i would say you should be eating a poutine or smoked meat sometimes during your stay LOL

Good heavens yes. Two if possible. Kid's selling off most of his collection (well, I bought it and am selling it off for him--mostly G1s, 3s and lots of MIB FiM) If not, we can make do (grumble) with one. So between his and my stuff... really need two tables if at all possible.

trading is fine.  there are a couple who only have a few things... 

we could do a table for people who do not have much, that way you will have somewhere to put them

that is if you do not mind sharing a table with a few people

ahhh man....... the award ribbons came in and they do look fantastic and are made very well BUT the company took a random image of rainbowdash and used that for the middle part instead of our mascot maple...

Which day do you think we'll have the dinner? Trying to plan hotels.

I was thinking of offering to setup name badges for those that don't already have their own if anyone was interested. I am doing the template for myself so it won't be too bad to do others. All you would have to do would be print, laminate and hole punch.

Anyone coming who is debating bringing an inexpensive G1 (under $15 CAD) stable carry case or the two-level carry case ($25 CAD or under), I am in the market for one or both of them. they don’t have to be mint, just not falling apart. I can clean them up myself. Also wouldn’t mind getting my hands on the (TRU?) G4 case that holds about 8-9 G4 playful size ponies (it came with a very tiny Pinkie Pie). (I’ve decided that my loose ponies that have no place on display shelves are going to get carry cases instead of plastic tubs :) . So I am looking for multiples, because I also have a lot of G3s that do fine in the G1 cases). Also the red fakie stable cases, for storing my now growing fakie herd...

Silly questions......

Will everyone have American or Canadian currency since it's right over the border? I just want to make sure I have proper change.

Do we know approximately how many attendees there will be?

For the tables, can we bring shelves or should we just leave it so that everything can sit flat on the table? I have a bunch of MOC G3 and G4 I'll be bringing along with my unicorn pins (I didn't get a chance to sell them online yet).

I’m glad to hear it’ll be happening again next year! I really wanted to come and I’m sad I’ll miss the first one. I just couldn’t get any more time off work to attend. Since it’s about a 21 hour drive I would have needed a few days to get there and back again.
