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.

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.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • You are responsible for buying your own ticket. I would advise you all to buy a ticket online before coming to the meetup. Tickets can bought at this website. It is recommended that you do this well in advance to ensure you get the seat you want!
  • Please read this Equestria Daily movie theatre etiquette guide before attending. 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. We want everyone attending to enjoy the movie, not just the members of the group.
  • We are meeting at outside the Broadway Cinema on the 28th of October 2017 at 11:30 AM (For the 12:30 PM viewing) and going inside at 12:00 PM.
  • Please let us know if you can make it by saying are attending on the event page on Facebook, or sending a message on the Telegram or Discord Chanel.

Poll for Date of Trottinghamshire Bronies July Meetup/Picnic

It's that time again, when we need to plan the next meetup. 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.  Just in case the weather is poor, we will start the meetup at the [ALT] Gaming Lounge, and then go the Arboretum once everyone has turned up. 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.   

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.  

This poll would normally have more dates on, however most of the people running the group are going to BronyCon in August so can not run a meetup that month.  

The poll is now closed. The Winning date is the July the 29th.

June 10th Trottinghamshire Meetup (Fighting is Magic Tournament)

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.

Fighting is Magic – Tribute Edition tournament

Following an email discussing the viability of holding a video game tournament for Fighting is Magic at the [ALT] Video Gaming Lounge, they have agreed that they would be open to hosting the event if we pay £30 for the rental of two computer stations for 2 - 3 hours. This is a whopping 58% discount. We plan to use one of the computer stations for the purpose of practise/exhibition matches and the second computer station for the ranked matches. 

However, in order to organise the event, the [ALT] Video Gaming Lounge does need to know the date of the event. Therefore, we are putting forward our poll a little bit earlier than before, to allow people time to declare their preferred date, so we can get back to [ALT] with a date. We will maintain contact throughout to offer complete transparency to the staff there.

To cover the cost of the computer station rental, I would like to propose a £2 charge for anyone who wishes to have their name added to the roster for the tournament. This means that if 15 people enter the event, we have paid off the computers. However, any surplus money will probably either go to a prize for the winner (Food/Drink) or, for funding the next event.

Please vote on the poll below this post your preferred date and whether you would be willing to pay a small charge to enter the tournament, before the 29th of May at 1:15 am. Your feedback is valuable to us.
