Henry will be there! May 6, 2002

Although he hasn't signed up for this one yet, I do know that Henry (the site founder) will be in the BCN area during those days and would look forward to meeting us proz from the area.

I also second Rick's proposal of the Masia, if Pat is still open to the idea. Have you written to him to ask Rick?

Cheers,

Berni

Hi. May 7, 2002

No, I haven't. I wouldn't blame him if he told me to go have intercourse with myself!) I'll send him a message and see what he says.

"EL TRAPICHE" II May 7, 2002

Hello all, as Rick has e-mailed me and the idea has being going round in my mind for a while, Let's see if this year we can finally get together.
So same as last year, the suggestion is to organise something at mine. I suggest we do a barbecue (with a vegetarian option) and all the booze you can drink!!. The price will be all inclusive. The masia is large, there is plenty of room to organise something for loads of people. Everyone will be together. We have room for organising meetings, etc. So there it is!. Let's try and not dithering too much and see if we can pull it off this time. Looking forwards to hearing your suggestions!

Some second parts really are improvements... May 7, 2002

...witness Terminator II

I think it would be great to have a day out at "El Trapiche". Looking forward to it.

Incidentally, isn't there a way to send out notification of this Pow Wow to all "local" prozers?

I think the best you can May 7, 2002

do is narrow the pro search down to Spain. There are 30 or 40 platinum I think, and about 423 regular members. No premium.

I don't know what happened.. May 8, 2002

...to my initial note - lost in the works somewhere! Nice date to celebrate having the IRPF Declaration behind us one year more. Just hope there's no snow, although after the last two nights, I'm not so sanguine about it. Can't do much to help organise, can bring anyone who lives round the Sitges area, if it's a question of cars.
Thanks Patrick, I'm looking forward to it.

There is a list of the ones who made it to the Christmas show, so we can mail them direct.

notifying May 21, 2002

I tried to notify people for the Girona powwow and had to do mailings by first choosing language pairs and then 'living in Spain'. What did this mean? That some people will have got about four messages and others will have got none. There are only so many hours in a day to select possible language pairs! Again, the group message option is ‘limited’ to the first 100 people listed in the language pairs so 101 onwards receive no notification. In any case, it’s a good idea as almost 50% of the Girona participants (that means three!!) found out about it through these messages.

Henry won't be there :-( May 28, 2002

Hi all,
Henry had to cut his trip to Europe short and so will not be joining us at the Masia - if that is where it will end up being held.
Oh, well, I'm sure we'll all still enjoy a face to face meeting, if Girona is anything to go by. Click on the Girona Powwow to see my report on that one.

Looking forward to seeing you all,
Cheers,
Berni

"EL TRAPICHE" II (A once in a lifetime Event!!) May 31, 2002

Hello all, though still a month to go before the event, I would like to make the suggestion now, so that all of those who are still pondering can make up their minds.
So the idea is for all to meet up at my place on the 6th at around 1300 hrs. We will start the event "como corresponde": cava, fuet, munchies, etc.
Then we will have a Cordero a crucificado (a la Argentina)6 hours cooked in front of a fire. (there will also be a vegetarian option available). With the cordero we shall be having butifarra, escalibada, pa amb tomaquet, salads, dessert, etc. Obviously copious amounts of vino to accompany the meal.
The price will be all inclusive. as I metioned previously on my suggestion for the first December event, the masia is an ideal setting for all of us to get together in one place outdoors.
so there it is once more I hope to meet you all!!!. I would like to know well in advance so I can get things moving. We have a van available for picking up anyone coming by train from the Sant Sadurni Station.

Au revoir! for now

"El Trapiche II" Jun 1, 2002

As far as I understand, this time it is for sure "Patrick 32" will organize the pow wow in Sant Sadorni... I will be delighted to join with my "fiancée" Eva (shis is not a profesional translator but she speaks currently 5 languages).

I have no car neitheir driving licence (at 53 years old, I might be considered as some kind of Martian...) but I know how to reach sant Sadurni amb el Ferrocaril de la generalitat (am I mistaking ???)
The only thing I would appreciate is :
1/- To have the full name and address of Patrick + phone number or private e-mail.
2/- To know (just for info) what would be the fees.
3/- To be sure to receive a confirmation of the date and place if possible one week before the Pow wow.

I attended to the last Pow Wow in december : it was very sympathic but I am afraid we did not exchange many valuable information on our market...
I do hope it wil be different this time. I also do hope that Girona members will join us.

Best regards to all the PROZAC aficionados (FYG their is a very funny Forum in spanish initiated by Anna M from Girona - dont miss it !..)

Friendly yours

Thierry LOTTE
