Czequestria 2017 – we join for the third time to fulfill the dream and make the common goal a real thing once again!
Two years ago, at the closing ceremony, we made a bold promise that Czequestria will return in two years. Some were disappointed, others did not believe it would actually happen. Because… how many conventions ended for good this way? After the organization start in 2013 and stormy years 2014 and 2015 it would be no surprise. Either way, the rest was more than needed. But the promise lasted, and so did the hope.
One thing is certain: much has changed in those two years. Some left, some joined, the world has also changed. But even if nothing stays the same for long, when it changes it doesn’t mean it’s gone (indeed).After two years, I’m happy to say that the rest was really refreshing and prepared us for this year’s events, which brought us a few surprises, and definitely fall among the unforgettable ones.
Despite all the phrases, the most important thing is the easiest one to say:
It’s already a month since Czequestria 2017. During that time, the most vivid memories were overshadowed with the daily chores and work, but all those memories and happiness of spending the weekend together will remain.
We believe that all of the visitors have enjoyed the con – soon there will be an opportunity to tell the organizers what you’ve liked the most and what needs to be improved for the future. But before that there is one important thing: for the memories to remain we have prepared the complete overview of photos, videos and tweets that reflect the authentic atmosphere of the convention.
How did all those CZ/SK bronies meetups started? What happenned in the community before the first MLP:FiM convention in the Czech Republic and Slovakia? The long awaited documentary film about Czequestria made in a longer course and thank to big effort of many people. Even bigger meetups we had weren’t enough, so the desire and dreams about something magnificent turned into reality …
The film was screened at Czequestria 2015 in the main hall on Saturday afternoon.
Congratulations to Honzdir for bringing the documentary film project to a successful end!
All the paperwork is now finished, so we can proudly present the final amount of money donated in Czequestria 2015 charity auction. In total, people pledged
Perry, hats off for this result 😉
Thanks to all donors for amazing stuff for the auction and auction attendees not just for the finance donations, but also for the spirit they created during the auction itself. All donated many were handed over to Your Siblings e.V. organization and used for buying anti-malaria nets against mosquitos to help fight malaria in the third world countries.
Besides the overview at Bronies for Good page, Czequestria can be found in a video which compares (not only) charity donations at MLP:FiM conventions across the Europe:
Its been a while since Czequestria 2015 took place. There has been many memorable moments and joyful times that many will remember but also quite a few photos were taken and some hours of video were recorded! It would be a great shame to not share all of this with all of you and to relive the wonderful times we all had at Czequestria or to show to those, who missed it, that the next time they better check their calendars!
Once again, thanks to all who contributed in any way to make Czequestria 2015 happen!
In case we’ve missed some of the photos or videos, please let us know via e-mail, or via Facebook, and or via Twitter – we will be delighted to place them in the collection here!
