The end of June? Jun 29, 2008

Hi everybody, and thanks to all the new signups.
How about meeting up around the end of June?
Would you prefer a weekend or a weekday?
Cheers!

Weekend Jun 29, 2008

End of June is fine, but since I work in-house, weekdays are out of the question... Saturday would be ideal for me, but Sunday works too.

June or July? Jun 29, 2008

Do you mean the end of "July?" I have another appointment on both July 19 and 20, and I want to give a birthday dinner for my elder son who will turn 15 years old on July 27. So far I am only available on July 21 (National Holiday) and 26 (Saturday)...;-)

July, not June Jun 29, 2008

Hi - sorry, the post should read end of July, not June.
Hope you can all come at the end of July...maybe if people can say what dates are definitely no good then we can take it from there. Thanks in advance!

All weekends are fine for me, but my company works during national holidays, so that's out. Decide on any Saturday or Sunday and I'm there

Has everybody who wants to come signed up? Jul 1, 2008

Hi folks!
Thanks to all the new signups and those eagerly waiting to see when this is going to happen.

It’s looking like people are a little divided about the dates they can come, so I can’t really decide a date yet - I think we will probably have to take a vote in the end, unless we shift the date quite far forward.
If anybody else would like to sign up, please do so quickly so we can decide a date!
Thanks a lot.
See you soon!
Calum

amazed to see so many of you are interested... Jul 3, 2008

I'm amazed to see so many members are interested in attending this round of PowWow. As an attender at the last time's PowWow, when only 4 people were present, now I'm wondering how the event would actually go on. For example, what would be topic(s) for discussion or...simple for conversation? Or would be this just a meeting occasion with the site's colleagues for chatting in any case? You never know what it's like, since as you know, there has never been this scale of PowWow held in around Tokyo so far...

my avilability... weekends or else two-three hours in evening on weekdays Jul 3, 2008

I will be posisbly more available on weekends, otherwise two-three hours in evening on weekdays may be possible, depending on my up-to-date availability, of course, though.

It would have to be a weekend for me. I have too many things going on during the week.
Based on the comments, it sounds like a Sunday afternoon might be your best shot. I think the last pow-wow was on a Sunday.

Also, I attended a Tokyo pow-wow a few years ago which had about 20 attendees. There were a couple announcements made for the whole group; otherwise, the conversation split off into groups of 3-4 people due to standard social dynamics. It was just nice to meet and talk with people who I don't normally get a chance to talk with. It also opened up a few extra business contacts for me.

20 people of PowWow a few years back... Jul 4, 2008

I'm again surprised to read on Kurt's comment that there was a Tokyo PowWow a few year ago of a scale as large as 20 people attended. I simply wasn't aware of that. Now I imagine what it would have been like when 20 people got together. I thank Kurt for correcting me on the information.
I recalled the one I attended was definitely before 2001 and the location was in the China Town in Yokohama....

How about the 26th or 27th of July? Jul 4, 2008

Hi everybody -
great response to this powwow, should be a lot of fun.
Everybody has different dates they can come, but we've got to choose one...
How about the 26th or 27th of July?
If they are no good, I'm going to have to ask for everybody to vote for a date between now and, say, the end of August.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon,
Calum

26th if possible Jul 4, 2008

I can go to either date, but Saturdays are better for me.
