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.

Trottinghamshire Bronies Meetup on May 20th

As usual the plan is to meetup at 12:00 pm and hang around the [ALT] Gaming Bar, catch up, and play games (including card games). Feel free to bring want to bring your games.

 The [ALT] Gaming Bar 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.

Also the idea of a game tournament was suggested at our last meetup. However, has been pushed back slightly so that we can have more time to organise the event and liaise with the ALT gaming staff regarding feasibility.
