Though it seems that the entire Czequestria is organized just by a few people, the reality is completely different. Dozens of people participate in the preparations, ensuring the success of both LARP and the convention weekend, as each one contributes to the common goal: to have a fun MLP-themed weekend for us all.
And who are those people who brought the idea of the CZ/SK My Little Pony convention to life? There are many, but they all deserve a big thank you!

Vojta Fišer (tydlitele)

At the 4th Big Prague meetup, he joined the organization team as a sound engineer – since then, he’s done this job at all the events, not just Czequestria and its party. Recently, he has been earning some money as a sound engineer as well. Passion for Scootaloo remained with him even after years, so together with his scooter, you could meet him at Czequestria LARP.

Tomáš Malínský (d’Artagnan)

A man who does not spoil any fun and a hard worker who willingly helps with any task that is at least a little bit possible. In addition to sound engineering, he also provides transportation of things and people to Czequestria and other cons and meetups according to current needs.
Kateřina Jindrová (Nephala)
When we met for the first time, she was very shy and did not want to join us, telling us that “she’s not a member of the high brony society”. In the end, we convinced her that we are not any chosen closed elite group, and since Czequestria 2015 she oversees the organization of the workshops. She also ran the Czequestria tearoom which was very popular among visitors. Despite occasionally acting a little uncertain, she takes all her given tasks seriously.
Ondřej Klement (Claymon)
The organizer of the Pilsen brony meetups since 2012. At Czequestria and the big events, he works in the position “I do everything that’s needed”. Primarily, however, it is logistics and the transfers of impossible things and people to impossible places in impossible times. In private life, he works as a repair technician in the Pilsen Škoda Heating Plant. Hobbies include many ball games, keyboard destruction while playing PC games, military warfare equipment collection from the era of the Vietnam war, and creating a constant stream of sarcastic commentaries.
Graphics designers and artists
Kateřina Waning (Cwossie)
What is gray and has wings? Pigeons? Derpy? Griffon? Yes, and also Cwossie, who’s a bit of each! Cwossie is the author of con-guide covers and guest portraits, as well as an active Tweeter who puts words into Libussa’s mouth. If you are a frequent European brony cons visitor, you might have spotted this long-time pony fan in one of their many cosplays from the MLP universe.

Currently, he draws predominantly ponies, but also characters from video games, other fandoms, or her OCs from time to time. Sometimes, she may seem crazy to friends, but she just tries to make them laugh and make fun of everybody, although to anyone who does not know her she may seem shyer than Fluttershy.
Kristýna Zipperová (Light)
Memes? Ponies? That’s exactly her cup of tea! Not only does she draw with watercolors as if for life, but she also participates in the organization of conventions at many places in Europe. At first glance, she may look a bit crazy, but you will definitely like her smile and especially her art. After all, it kind of belongs together, doesn’t it?
Markéta Polesná (MesuYoru)
Mesu became interested in MLP in 2012, and her life started to change. Despite being an extreme introvert, she began organizing smaller meetups in the harsh north – now, she’s a co-organizer of the North Brony Reunion and author of one of the meetup mascots. She absolutely adores Czequestria and will never miss it. In 2019, she joined the graphic team and created portraits of Libussa on the tickets, Epona-style Libussa on the T-shirts, and posters with Harmony pillars.
