Thank You!

Five years ago, BronyCAN opened its doors for the first time to an attendance of 850 wonderful people, and in 2017, we decided to end the roller coaster ride. Over the past years, we have had the honour of hosting some of the biggest talent from the show. The privilege of meeting and making friends with the best attendees we could ever ask for. Last but not least, the humbling experience of working with some of the most dedicated ponies we have ever laid our eyes on.

While we will all miss the opportunity to gather again in Richmond B.C. (where not only is the show created, but we managed to get the hotel on Pokemon Go as “The Portal to Equestria”), I want to reassure everyone that the decision to close our doors was not taken lightly. Rather, we decided to end things on our terms, rather than putting on a heavily reduced convention. This was our opportunity to go out with a “BANG”.

If you will allow me a moment to get a touch personal here, I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank EVERYONE involved in the planning and running of this convention over the last 5 years. Without this very large group of people, we never would have made it past the ½ year mark, let alone the streak we did have. Below is a list of all the people who have done some amazing work as leads and deputies for every department in BronyCAN’s History.

Heads of Staff

To everyone who has helped out in any small or big manner, I wanted to say to you personally;

THANK YOU! From the bottom of my heart, each and every one of you have my everlasting gratitude. Many of you (you know who you are) prevented me from going full breakdown this past year, and it means so much to me that you were there to help me through. (If I have missed anyone, or anyone's roles from past years, you have my deepest apologies. It was a long list and I assure you it was not out of malice, but exhaustion and poor memory).

You have my adoration, one and all.
