To everypony who helped make AliCon 2019 a weekend to remember,
Thank you so much for being part of something special. Whether you were an attendee for the whole weekend or just one day, VIP, Vendor, Panelist, Performer, Volunteer, Special Guest, Organiser, or anything in between, every single one of you made AliCon 2019 magical!
We saw 306 ponies travel from across Saddle-aide, from around Australia, and even from overseas make their way to the National Wine Centre for 2 amazing days of panels, games, concerts, fun, and friendship. Every single one of you is part of our story.
Planning for AliCon 2019 actually began in mid last year before AliCon 2018 had even taken place. The amount of time, effort, and love put into running an event like this is huge, and I can personally say it was all worth it to see the smiles on all of our attendee’s faces. The laughter that was shared, the songs that were sung, and the memories that were created, these are the reasons I do what I do.
I need to say a special thank you to my 2019 Organisers - Bumper, Milo, and torrentails. These 3 amazing individuals stepped up to the plate to help put on a wonderful weekend for all of you. I have made them laugh and I am sure I have made them cry, yet they persevered and made me proud. I am so delighted to have been a part of and to have led this incredible team.
I now turn my focus to 2020 - our biggest year yet. 3 days of pony fun and I can’t wait for it to happen.
Thank you, everypony.
