June Meetup Date and 5 Yr Anniversary event poll.

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.

UK Pony Con 2018 Pre/Breakfast/After Meets

As UK Pony Con is being held in Nottingham this year (on the Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th October 2018) I thought it would be good idea to hold Pre/After/Breakfast Meets for anyone going to the convention.

The plan for the Pre/After Meets  would be to meetup at The Orange Tree as this is less than 5 minutes from the Nottingham Conference Centre where the convention venue is, and we have a good relationship with them. They have in the past even made a special My Little Pony themed dessert for us.

However depending on the time we hold the pre/after meets, booking a room may involve a cost of about 5£ per person, . We need to know more details about UK Pony Con schedule before we know if there will be a cost a for sure, the but I would want to make sure people are ok with that first.

For the Breakfast Meet we will have to have a different venue as the The Orange Tree isn't open until 12 pm. So most likely we will meetup at the Old Market Square next to the lions and find a starbucks or other coffee shop. 

In order to work out if it is worthwhile for our group to hold Pre/After/Breakfast Meets, and help us work out the number of people that will turn up, we have a quick poll for people to fill in. This way I can give them a ball park figure of how many people are coming, and possibly book out one of the back rooms.

 

Poll for the Next Trottingham Meetup and Anniversary Meetup Dates

There are two questions to vote on this time. The first one is the date of the next Trottinghamshire Meetup date. However there are two weekends I can not run a meetup, the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of April and 19th and 20th of May. To make up for this I have included the May bank holidays (7th May and 28th May).

However there is something else we need to vote on. The Anniversary Meetup Date.

The last poll had question about if we wanted to pick the date for the Anniversary Meetup early, and most of you said yes to doing that. So we will be doing a vote on 5th Anniversary Meetup date this time as well.

This poll closes on 15th of April (12:00 am)   

Quick reminder of poll next for meetup date and 5 Year Anniversary planing.

Just a quick reminder that the poll for next Trottinghamshie Meetup will close Today at Midnight (10th of March). Sorry it wasn't published earlier, but as mentioned via various channels (Facebook/Discord,Telegram, etc) the heavy snow in Mansfield kind killed off my internet, but hopefully it hasn't cause too much of inconvenience. 

This poll also includes a extra question about if we should pick the date for the 5 Year Anniversary Meetup earlier than June (We are planing on having the Anniversary in) to avoid the room at the Orange Tree from being booked when we need it. 

As usual the plan is to hang around The Orange Tree pub on Shakespeare Street in Nottingham and catch up with members. 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.

There maybe other things going on, but that depends on the date picked.

Poll for the date and room of the February Meetup

It's time to plan for next month's meetup. Hopefully there won't be any problems like the train station fire like last time. This poll will close on the 28th of January at Midnight, and has an additional question about which room people want us to book for the meetup.

This time round the plan is to hang around The Orange Tree pub on Shakespeare Street in Nottingham and catch up with members. 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.

13th Of January Meetup Write Up (Buck Train Station Fires, We have ponies)

This time around we had booked out the disco room at the The Orange Tree, so we could show a slideshow of pictures from last year along with some Brony community-made background music. This was also useful to test the sound system and projector, to see if it was any good for the 5 year anniversary special. We can confirm that it is suitable for our needs.

While the meetup was slightly complicated due to the fire at Nottingham Train Station, it didn't stop people coming to the meetup. The meet-up peaked at a total of 12 attendees, and most of these stayed to the end.

There were plenty of things going on during this meet; from an MLP CCG game, to people just chatting. There was also a Tails Of Equestria one shot campaign, featuring characters from one of the previous campaigns.

There was talk about the Trottingham Custom Twilight Sparkle's Secret Ship Fic deck. If you have any ideas for cards you can use this TSSSF Card Generator in order to test them out. 

Alternatively, just mention your card ideas here.

Overall, it was a very enjoyable meetup and we hope that the Orange Tree will be happy to host us on future occasions.

This month’s Trottinghamshire Brony meet-up is hosted at The Orange Tree pub on Shakespeare Street in Nottingham at 12:00 PM on the January 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.

I know that is not even 2018, but It's time to plan for next month's meetup. This poll will close on the 22nd of December at Midnight. Also there is a suggestion box for what people want to do for the 5 Year Anniversary of the Trottinghamshire Group, which is coming up in July. It has been also suggested that we could do custom TSSSFF cards. If you don't have any ideas for the event, you could just make a suggestion on what cards we could make.  

This time round the plan is to hang around The Orange Tree pub on Shakespeare Street in Nottingham and catch up with members. 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.

Trottingham Bronies - Christmas Meet Up - 02/12/2017 Write Up

Today's meet up took place at the Orange Tree pub in central Nottingham. We were lucky enough to be able to reserve a private area of the bar that easily had enough room to host the 14 attendees of this month's meet, marking not only a great end to the year, but also one of the best turn outs for these meet ups in this final quarter.

With delicious food and ample table space for card and other games, we feel that the reception of the Orange Tree as a potential venue for future meet ups was very positive, and we didn't even need to pay for the private room, meaning attendees did not need charging to cover the costs.

Some points were raised about the upcoming 5th anniversary of our group's creation (18 July 2012) and the potential to do something special for this date, but what that "something special" will consist of is still open to suggestion. If you have any ideas, please suggest them on the Facebook page or our Discord/Telegram chat rooms, links to all of which can be found in the "Contact Us" page.

We hope you all had a great time and wish you a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Trottinghamshire Christmas meetup

Header Image Source: https://basykail.deviantart.com/art/The-Christmas-Tour-510397513

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.
