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.

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

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.

Nov 11th Write-up and Christmas Party Announcement (With Poll)!

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

Yesterday's meet took place at the Orange Tree bar in Nottingham and with a peak turnout of 12 people, we had a great time! The staff were friendly, accommodating and the food was delicious. We had plenty of space and overall the meet went pretty well.

I'm going to keep the summary brief, because at the approach to Christmas, we now need to discuss the December/Christmas meet-up. We'd like to have this at the Orange Tree again, except this time with the private room. As a result, we will be holding the poll early and it will only last a week, rather than the usual 2. This gives us time to book in advance.

Please state your availability in the poll below. The most popular date we will try to book the private room for. Please be aware that the private room is £50 for the day, so we need an idea of how many will be coming. we'd like to split the cost of this room between all attendees. With 10 attendees, that's £5 each. For more than 10, we can go even less.

This poll closes on 11/20/2017 Monday at 1 AM.

Trottinghamshire Bonfire Night Mini-Meetup @ Forest Recreation Ground

On the suggestion of one of our members we are running a Bonfire Night Meetup like last year, but a shorter mini-meetup as it is a bit last minute. We are still running the normal meetup.

We will be meeting at 18:40 outside the Gates at Vivian Court, and then head over to the Forest Recreation Ground at 19:00. This is because it's less likely to be crowded there than at Forest Recreation Ground.

There are two fireworks displays at 19:15 and 21:00 (the earlier display being a smaller one).The lighting of the biggest bonfire in the East Midlands will be at 19:45.

Also Don't forget to wear suitable clothing for a cold and damp November evening, and feel free to contact me via Telegram or Discord Server if there is any confusion about the details of the mini-meetup. 

Nottingham's best loved FREE Fireworks display is back at the Forest Recreation Ground.

11th of November Trottinghamshire Meetup

This month’s Trottinghamshire Brony meet-up is hosted at The Orange Tree pub on Shakespeare Street in Nottingham. For anyone unsure of the location, between 11:00 and 12:00 we will be meeting at the Lion statues in Old Market Square, and then at 12:00 we will begin moving up to The Orange Tree, which is where we will spend the remainder of the meet.

The change of venue is due to there being a private room that can be booked at The Orange Tree, and we'd like to get peoples' thoughts on the location. We have not booked the private room on this occasion, as this is just a test run.

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.

Trottinghamshire MLP Movie Meetup

We are happy to announce that there will be a Nottingham meetup for The My Little Pony Movie taking place on the 28th of October 2017. The plan is to meet outside the Broadway Cinema at 11:30 AM with plans to head inside to find seats at around 12:00 PM. This should give people enough time to arrive at the cinema and to get tickets and snacks.

After the movie, we will be heading to the Lloyds No. 1 Bar for food and drinks and a post-movie meet.

We do public meets all the time and I'm sure none of you will show us up, however to avoid being the stereotypical bunch of “those guys,” please humour us and give this a quick read.
