Sirsnīgi sveicieni braļu tautai!icon_smile.gif

Let me inform you about translators' powwow being organized in Klaipėda, Lithuania, on International Translator's Day, Sep. 29, 2007.

Still having nice memories from first Latvian powwow that I visited two years ago, this time I should like to share our hospitality with your community and invite Latvian colleagues to take an internationalicon_wink.gif trip to our powwow (hopefully, we will also be able to call it internationalicon_smile.gif ) in Klaipėda on Saturday, September 29, 2007.

As you may find in powwow website http://www.proz.com/powwow/1654, the headline of this powwow is "Maybe not only at the table..." It is not a secret that our profession takes a great deal of our lives "at the table", i.e. we are always sitting, hardly working, and feeling serious deficiency of physical movement. Not adding anything better to this, our powwows have also been just sitting at some table in café.

So, the idea behind the headline is to have a powwow partially or completely different from all powwows we had so far by getting away from table and taking some entertainment that involves movement. Of course, I do not offer to have an ice-hockey or basketball matchicon_smile.gif, but having fun, e.g. in bowling club (not yet decided, please offer your ideas in powwow website!) would be a fun and truly relaxed and informal atmosphere of meeting.

"Agenda" of powwow is still almost at zero level, so I invite you to register in powwow website, discuss and offer your ideas. We will be happy to make a powwow that will satisfy everybody's interests and will be something that will be strongly wanted again immediately after we go back to our homes and works.icon_wink.gif

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions and offer your brilliant and even craziest ideas in website http://www.proz.com/powwow/1654 and/or via e-mail E.Lomsargis@Erdves.Lt
Another information that may be important to you – we will be able to offer free "bed-and-breakfast" in our homes for some of you. However, please let us know your wishes good time in advance, as space is not limitless.icon_wink.gif

So, that's it at this point! I hope, I can say:

Uz drīzu redzēšanos!
