Hi everyone,

It is my turn to organise the latest meeting between our colleagues living and working in Northern Ireland, so a warm welcome to you all. As yet there is no set date or venue, but I am thinking to have it around mid-October. I would like to hear everyone's suggestions regarding the date, if this would suit you all.
For the venue, I am waiting to hear from Professor David Johnston, Head of the School of Languages at Queen's University. He was very generous in helping us a few times in the past, and allowed us to meet at the Queens' Film Theatre, so I'm just waiting for him to let me know of the options available.
For the event, please feel free to bring along any friends or family, as it is an informal meeting and it should be fun.
If anyone has suggestions regarding any particular topic or theme that we could focus on, please do so. Any input is valuable.
And don't forget to indicate here on the powwow site if you will attend or not, so that we can have an idea of the number of participants.
I will keep updating the details as they become available, so please keep checking.

Hi Gabrielle,
I can make it on the 8th as said, but was thinking it would be a shame to disappoint all the new comers. We haven't had this many people sign up for ages!
Should we leave it on the original date and meet at the pub/restaurant Dukes, near Queens University? That way people can decide for themselves if they want just a drink or a bite to eat as well. The pizza was lovely last time! Let me know what you think.

Hi Laura,

We can leave it for the 15th. but I won't be able to attend then, as I'll be in Cork from the 14th, unfortunately this was an unforseen situation, and I can't get out of it now! I don't know how set was everyone for the 15th, I didn't get feedback only from Maaike, and she couldn't really make it on the 8th. Dukes is fine, I was thinking myself that it would be better in a pub or restaurant anyway. What about a week later, the 22nd?? If you think it's better to keep the original date, that's fine, but I'll be sad to miss it. I think most people are flexible with the date. What do you think? Should I try to post the venue as Dukes, on the 22nd? And depending on the response, we can adjust.

22nd Sep 30, 2010

The 22nd would be great

I like Dukes, it's very close to my house, but any place is fine with me. Botanic has a lot of nice bars/restaurants.

Really sorry Oct 22, 2010

Gah! I am afraid I won't be able to make this one, folks. But I do hope you have a good 'un, as they say. There'll be another time, for sure.

JP.
