Possible venues? Nov 8, 2006

I have two possible venues for our powwow. One is a café in the Old Town in Geneva, and another is a small conference room downtown. I had also considered suggesting a potluck meal, but I don't know if everyone would like this idea. I would love your input and your suggestions, and the sooner you confirm attendance, the easier it would be to decide where to have the powwow (if it's quite small, the price the cafe wants to charge for the room is probably not worth it!).

Thanks!

Yes Nov 8, 2006

I completely agree! That's why I want people to confirm their attendance as soon as they can, so I can pick the best place for us to have space, etc.

cafe is a great idea, and close to the station Nov 8, 2006

Definitely would help me if we're close to the station and I think cafe would be perfect.
Thanks for putting this together, Lorenia!

Supporting Nov 13, 2006

I'm all right with a cafe provided I'll be able to get a snack there since I will have travelled all the way from Bern.

Afternoon Nov 28, 2006

Evening does not suit me either. Sometime in the afternoon would be great.

Times... Dec 4, 2006

Before confirming the time/address, I would just like final feedback from all of you. Some have mentioned they would not be able to attend in the evening. What time, then, anywhere from 12-17 is good for you? I will pick a time when most are able to make it and post the address ASAP. Thanks all!

Time and place confirmation. Dec 8, 2006

Sorry for the delay, I haven't had access for a bit. I wanted to confirm the time and place for everybody.

The place is a cafe called La Demi Lune, on Rue Etienne Dumont 3. It's in the Vieille Ville.
http://www.demilune.ch
That's the website, the coffee is good, the food is priced great and is delicious, and I think pretty much everyone can find something they like on the menu.

We'll be meeting 14h-16h (I hope that's okay for everyone). If you'd like your ID verified for Proz, please bring a valid ID.

From Gare Cornavin, you can take bus 3 to Croix-Rouge in the direction of Crêts-de-Champel, and from there it's a short (five minute) walk to the cafe.

If you're driving there, there's a parking nearby (St-Antoine) and popping the address into mappy will give you a very clear and easy map.

Hope to see you all there!
