Here's the skinny... Jan 30, 2007

I am organizing a day of driving around the French Riviera in 70s and 80s roadshow convertibles. We'll be visiting art galleries, museums, and stopping for lunch in a fine dining restaurant. So far there are six of us (from the previous day's advanced Wordfast training session) planning to go but there are still cars available for others. I wanted to extend the invitation to the ProZ community... the more the merrier!
We are getting a n exceptional deal for the day. It usually costs upwards of €150 per person. It will only cost each of us €75! This includes gas, collector car rental, museum entrance fees, fine dining restaurant, and a road book with our itinerary.
Still not convinced? Wait there's more... actually, that's about it. If you can't make it, we'll understand!

Itinerary 9 am to 5 or 6 pm Feb 12, 2007

I haven't set this yet... there may be a few people who have already done the Monaco-Nice cicuit so I'm thinking about arrière-pays niçois or around St Paul de Vence. Any special requests? Gosh, no Prozians have signed up yet... I feel like I'm talking to myself!

Powerpoint and wordfast Feb 13, 2007

Hi Sabrina,
How are things going? I found an e-mail addressed to you in my outbox that was never sent... something about powerpoint files and Wordfast? Did you get this? Are you interested in attending the WF training for beginnners next week? It can be fully covered by FIF-PL funds.
Hope you are well,
John

Six signed up so far... Feb 27, 2007

Hello Sabrine and Mirella,
So far, there are six of us: me, two agency translators/owners from England, their two friends, and a special VIP guest. (the others aren't signed up on ProZ; they are also coming for the previous days's Wordfast training).

Hi everyone,
For those who might need a place to stay, I've secured some discount rates at a few hotels in Nice. Send me an e-mail and I'll send you the list.
Also, there is more detailed information about our itinerary on my website (at the bottom of the page): http://www.apextra.net/wf_training.htm

Meeting times... Mar 5, 2007

Hello everyone,
D-day is approaching fast in the left lane... here are the details for Saturday morning.
We're going to meet at the restaurant cafe across from the Gare SNCF de Riquier (Nice-Est) at 9 am. You can reach me at 06 78 52 41 76. From there, we'll carpool up to the basse corniche where the cars will be waiting for us.
We'll be having lunch at the Grand Inquisitor in Roquebrune Cap Martin. Here's a review:
Ambiance médiévale

Située dans une rue étroite et pentue du village médiéval de Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, à quelques mètres seulement du château, cette ancienne bergerie voûtée datant du XIVème siècle exhale encore l'odeur du passé. Sous l'oeil attentif de l'Inquisiteur, représenté sur un grand tableau accroché aux murs de pierre, on déguste -très paisiblement rassurez-vous- une cuisine régionale, à laquelle le maître des lieux aime ajouter sa petite touche personnelle : fleurs de courgettes farcies sauce morilles, poulet bio aux cèpes en terrine ou filets de cannette aux oranges amères de Menton.

Hi Isabelle,
Great!
It's called the Virginie, on the corner of Arson and Place Blanqui right across the street from the station.
See you Saturday!

Just making sure that there are no last minute surprises... there are six people not signed up here plus Isabelle and Frank; that makes eight. I have reserved four cars for the eight of us.
