The voting for dates of the next couple of upcoming meetups are now closed, and the dates have now been chosen. These dates were picked due to them being the most popular days, the least disliked days, and the days that gives people themost notice.
The October Meetup will be held on the 16th of October, and the August Meetup will be on the 6th of November.
In other news, I can now confirm that the venue for the UKPC pre-meet and after-meet is The Johnson Arms. We have the Johnson Arms booked for the Friday (8th of October between 4 PM and 11PM) and Sunday (10th of October between 7 PM and 11PM) of the convention. More details will be posted soon, including the best method of get to the venue from the convention centre.
Details for both meetups and the UKPC Pre-meet/After-meet, will be posted at a later date in the events selection of this website. I will update this blog post, when said details are added.
It’s been over a month since we had a Trottinghamshire Meetup, (Unless you count the UKPC Pre/After meetups) so not only will we be holding a poll to decide the date for next month meetup, but there is another poll to help choose the date we hold the Christmas Meetup which will help us book things in advance. These polls will close on the 28th of October at Midnight.
The plan for the next meetup is to hang around The Orange Tree pub on Shakespeare Street in Nottingham to eat and socialise with other members. The Orange Tree has adequate table space for the people who enjoy playing card games during these meets, such as TSSSF and MLP CCG. If Pen and Paper RPGs are more of your thing, we will also be running a game of Tails of Equestria at the meetup.
It is also very close to the Victoria Shopping Centre if anyone wants to do some shopping during the meet.
So the poll for next meetup date is now closed. The most popular date was the 15th of September. However the second most popular date was 18th of August.
So as the UK Pony Con Pre/After meetups are coming up in a few months, I thought I’ll save us some time and book both dates. Despite the 18th of August being next weekend I was able to book our usual room at the Orange Tree.
So in summary the next meetup is 18th of August (Next Weekend) and the meetup after that is on the 15th of September. More Details to come soon.
It’s time to plan for next month’s meetup. This poll will close on the 28th (Monday) of May at Midnight. This time around there are two questions as we approach our 5 Year Anniversary event on July 21st 2018, we need to decide what we will be doing for this occasion.
For this coming month’s meet up, we plan to book a space at the The Orange Tree pub on Shakespeare Street in Nottingham and catch up with members. As the 5 Year Anniversary is coming up within two months, and this is the first meetup after Griffish Isles,there will be plenty to talk about.
The Orange Tree has adequate table space for the people who enjoy playing card games during these meets, so people can play TSSSF and MLP CCG at the meetup.
It is also close to the Victoria Shopping Centre, so if anyone wants to do some shopping during the meet, you won’t have far to go.
This month’s Trottinghamshire Brony meet-up is hosted at The Orange Tree pub on Shakespeare Street in Nottingham at 12:00 PM on theJanuary 13th. This time around, it was a tie between the 13th and 27th. As we had a meetup at the beginning of December, we decided to hold the next meetup on the 13th.
This time round the plan is to hang around The Orange Tree catch up with members. It has adequate table space for the people who enjoy playing card games during these meets, so people can play TSSSF and MLP CCG at the meetup.
We also found out at the last meetup that the Disco Room has a projector and sound system. So we are going to book this room out, so we can play some background music and show stuff on the projector .
The Orange Tree is also close to the Victoria Shopping Centre, so if anyone wants to do some New Year Sales shopping during the meet, you won’t have far to look.
This month’s Trottinghamshire Brony meet-up is hosted at The Orange Tree pub on Shakespeare Street in Nottingham. After talking to them they said that the only day out of the two that were chosen that they could do was the 2nd of December.
The meetup will start at our normal time of 12:00 pm and will be in the private room, so in order to help cover the £50 booking charge will cost a maximum of £5 per person, but this will be cheaper if more people come (Cost of meet = Booking fee / Attendees). Due to the fact that the side-room we originally wished to book was already taken, the meet-up will instead be taking place in their Disco Room, which should have enough space to host us all.
The Orange Tree also offers adequate table space for the people who enjoy playing card games during these meets. So people can still play TSSSF and MLP CCG at the meetup.
It is also close to the Victoria Shopping Centre, so if anyone wants to do some Christmas shopping during the meet, you won’t have far to look.
After some hiccups the date of the next meetup, has now been decided. The date of the next meetup is the 29th of July. This time around, the plan is to go to The Arboretum park, just off the University of Nottingham central campus for a picnic – weather permitting. This park is a fairly decent size, so we should be able to find a space to hold the meetup.
Just in case the weather is poor, we will start the meetup at the [ALT] Gaming Lounge about 12 PM, and then go the Arboretum about 1 PM. Facebook and Discord updates will be provided throughout the day so that if anyone is joining us after we have left the [ALT] Lounge, they will be able to track us down.
Feel free bring your own food and snacks, however put any food in a backpack you will be taking to Arboretum, if you will be meeting us at the [ALT] Gaming Lounge. If you are meeting us at the Arboretum, just wait at the entrance closest to Nottingham Trent University
If the weather is poor, we will just hang around the [ALT] Gaming Lounge, catch up, and play games (including card games).
The ALT bar serves delicious food and drinks and they have been accommodating enough to treat us most excellently during our meet-up events, so if you can, please do buy things at the bar.
Following the closure of the poll for the next date for a Trottingham Bronies meet-up, the winner is Saturday the 10th of June 2017.
As usual, this will be hosted at the [ALT] Gaming Lounge, starting from 12:00pm.
Please feel free to bring along your own games of your choosing. However, please bear in mind that on the 10th there will be a Nintendo Switch tournament going on at [ALT], so there may not be as much free space as usual. We are not planning on getting involved with the Switch tournament.
We also hope to be doing a Fighting is Magic tournament on this same day at the computer stations of the [ALT] bar (Pending confirmation from [ALT] staff). Because we need to pay for the usage of these stations, we ask anyone who wishes to be added to the tournament roster to pay a small charge of £2. Of course, If you want to come to the Meetup but do not wish to take part in the Tournament, you do not need to pay a thing (Though putting some money into some food and drinks at ALT would be appreciated).
We may not be able to get controllers that work with Fighting is Magic – Tournament Edition, so there is a chance that it will be a case of having 2 people at the same keyboard.
As usual the plan is to meetup at 12:00 pm and hang around the [ALT] Gaming Bar, catch up, and play games (including card games). Feel free to bring want to bring your games.
The [ALT] Gaming Bar bar serves delicious food and drinks and they have been accommodating enough to treat us most excellently during our meet-up events, so if you can, please do buy things at the bar.
Also the idea of a game tournament was suggested at our last meetup. However, has been pushed back slightly so that we can have more time to organise the event and liaise with the ALT gaming staff regarding feasibility.
