Voting for June/July's Trottinghamshire Meetup dates

It's time to pick the dates for the June and July's Trottinghamshire Meetups. This poll will close on the 2nd of June at Midnight. We are voting for the next two meetup dates at the same time because there is about 2 months until BronyCon and it will make it difficult to plan July's Trottinghamshire Meetup.

As for the next Trottinghamshire meetup, it will start at the Costa Coffee in the entrance hall of Nottingham Train Station at 12:00 PM. Then, at 12:30 we will head over to The Johnston Arms via the Toton Lane tram (Getting off at Gregory Street), hopefully getting to the pub for 1 PM.

The Johnston Arms 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 most likely be running a game of Tails of Equestria at the meetup if we have the time too.

If playing table top games is not your thing there will be plenty of people who you can just hang out with and socialise. If the group wants to and the weather is good outside, we can decide to have the meetup in the large beer garden out the back.

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 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.

It's time to plan for next month's meetup. This poll will close on the 12th of August at Midnight

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, 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.

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.
