Voting for March's Meetup Venue due to Booking Issues

After trying to book the most popular dates from the last meetup poll (2nd March and 23rd March) I was told by the Orange Tree that they are booked up for the whole of March. Because of this we now need to pick a new venue. This venue depending on future availability of the Orange Tree, could be the venue we have our meetups at from now on.

While we are waiting for the dust to settle, and for us to have a more consistent venue, we will be starting meetups (including the March meetup) at The Arboretum Cafe at 12 pm then moving to the venue chosen in the poll below after 1 pm.

This poll will close on 18th of February at Midnight. Please pick all the venues that you are OK with us having as a meetup venue, as depending on how the next meetup goes, the top 3 picked will be candidates for us to scout out. I'm yet to decide on which of the two dates from the last poll I'm going to pick, as this will depend on the availability at venue picked.

Poll For Trottinghamshire March Meetup Date

Now that the dust has settled from this month's meetup, it's time to plan for next month's Trottinghamshire Meetup.

This poll will close on the 11th of February at Midnight. We are also going to be voting on what other activities we want to do this year as it will make planning future meetups easier.

The plan for the March meetup is to hopefully 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 table top games during these meets, so people can play TSSSF, tails of Equestria (a Pen and Paper RPG), 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.

Changes to this weekends meetup (2nd Of Feb)!

Poll CLOSES TOMORROW (30th of January) at midnight.

Voting is now CLOSED. Updated Event info can be found here

Sorry for this being so short notice, but I have just informed by the Orange Tree that they have had to cancel the booking for 2nd Of February meetup.

This is because the company that now owns the Orange Tree wants to hold an open eventthat involves booking out the whole pub (for a rugby match). This now means we need todecide what we want to do instead.

We could re-book for a later date in the month or go to The Lost City Adventure Golf at The Corner House. I been told by other members of our group that Adventure Golf apparently doesn't need booking in advance, but just in case I will be trying to make a booking anyway.

Poll for the date of the January/February Trottinghamshire Meetup (NOW CLOSED)

This poll is closed. See below for results. Details of Meetup will be posted once The Orange Tree Confirms the dates picked are available.

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

Poll for Next Trottinghamshire Meetup (Nov/Dec) Date

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.

15th of September and 18th of August meetups.

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.

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.

PleaseGodYes.png

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)
