Hi,



I will be trying to organize a Powow in Salt Lake City, Utah on July 25, 2003. I hope lots of folks can make it.



I have been astounded lately at the number of people from Utah that are in the translation biz, in the last week I have collaborated with at least 5 people I never met before, and a couple more I work with regularly. I personally don\'t live there year round, but I teach a Dutch class and a linguistics class there every summer. I think it would be great for us to get together.



I am thinking that Rodesio Grill will be the perfect spot; great food and lots of it, and no one will mind if we hang out there for hours on end. The Mayan might be another choice. I see to remember an interesting Tibetan buffet in SLC as well.



I hope people from the area can make it! Register your interest at http://www.proz.com/powwow/385.

Also, advice needed Feb 25, 2003

Also, I am interested in advice on what to do (and what not to do!) by anyone who has tips to share from past Powows!

Utah is not downtown Toronto Feb 25, 2003

is my powwow experience.

During the preparations for a Mid-South Sweden powwow (which for various reasons was never held)we all agreed that if you are to travel 300 miles to a powwow you\'d like get value for money, i.e. have at least a full day\'s program and time and opportunity to sit down and talk with more than one or two colleagues.

Downtown Toronto is different: You can say \"Let\'s meet on Thursday 15th in the bar at 18.00 hours\" and you\'ll have 23 people turning up.

Toronto ain't Buenos Aires Feb 25, 2003

Mats claimed: \"Downtown Toronto is different: You can say \"Let\'s meet on Thursday 15th in the bar at 18.00 hours\" and you\'ll have 23 people turning up.\"



Huh?



The last powwow here last fall took some organization and only 15 people showed up I think (minus me). It\'s not as quickly done and all-too-convivial as you might think, Mats. I myself only know four fellow translators in TO...ok, five...



And I\'ve met only one of them. I think I should organize a powwow myself this summer and invite Henry.



It\'s in Buenos Aires that people get up and go as you\'ve described. Or so it seems judging by their numbers.
