Just one Jul 5, 2010

I attended one, in Bacharach in December 2003. I'd attend more but am a bit out in the sticks here!

Only one Jul 5, 2010

In Valencia a couple of years ago; it was a great experience meeting colleagues in person.
I have the same problem as Mary-W nowadays, living in the back of beyond is very peaceful and perfect for working from home, but makes it a struggle to manage to get to any social gatherings with a fixed schedule.
I highly recommend attending though, it was definitely a useful experience.

Powwows in Uruguay are a lot of fun Jul 5, 2010

We've had two excellent organizers: first, Fabio Descalzi and now Laureana Pavón.

These get-togethers have always been a lot of fun and a great opportunity for meeting other colleagues — important contacts, extraordinary friends. This way I've overcome that feeling of isolation that translators often complain about.

Thanks Laureana and Fabio!

Two Jul 5, 2010

Attended two: one in Brussels and one in Düsseldorf. Organized one in Brussels.
The one in Düsseldorf is always a "happening" and full of interesting people.

Seven Jul 5, 2010

... And really sorry I can't make the one in Padborg/Flensburg in September. But I can't be in two places at once, and some family events even take priority over powwows!

The Danish ones are really great, and I was lucky enough to attend one in Warsaw last year. So THANKS to the organisers! I must try it myself one day.

They are really worth the effort of coming.

New to Powwow Jul 5, 2010

I tried to get to a Powow in Long Beach, but it was just at the time of the Grand Prix so there were so many areas closed off so I couldn't get the meeting point on time.
There's one happening in Burbank soon, so I will definitely try to get to that.
I look forward to meeting other translators.
