And did you rally mean 13.00 Irène?
At the previous International conferences I've attended, the Powwow has been in the evening, so that even late arrivals can attend.
I was hoping there might be a sight-seeing tour on the Friday afternoon.

Re Apr 28, 2012

TX Irene.
At the BCN 2010 conference, it was indeed an evening powwow, with a visit to an astounding photo exhibition.
@Russell: a "tour" of BCN sounds like a VERY ambitious programme

Yes, "sightseeing" might have been a better expression. We had organised sightseeing tours in Krakow, Budapest and Ohrid.

Date and time ? May 5, 2012

I suppose that given the Conference, it will be on Friday night, right ?
Or do you plan to hijack the Gala Dinner on Saturday night ?
Or do you plan something for those not leaving Barcelona right after the Conference, on Sunday night ?
Or Monday night ?
... or... all of the above ?

Wine tasting May 5, 2012

Hello all!

I see that you have been quicker than me!

I am putting together a wine tasting on Friday evening and I'd like to know if any of you might be interested. It will probably last for about 1 hour and a half and there will be tapas for dinner (small dishes). The price is 25€ per person (tasting and dinner). It's in a place in the city center, so afterwards we can meet at a bar with other people.

What do you think? I need a minumum of 20 people in order to do it. I have to finish negotiating with the person in charge and I will publish it.

Interested?

Please let me know.

Regards,

Patricia de Gispert
Barcelona conference organiser

Overlapping schedules ? May 8, 2012

Dear Irène,

Please confirm again : is this Powwow really going to happen on Saturday night, the 9th, at the same time and as an alternative to the gala dinner, or is it going to happen on the 8th, Friday night, or 10th, Sunday night, after the Conference ?

As you mentioned you would ask the ProZ staff to change the day, I understood (and I am pretty sure many of us understood too) it was suppose to be on Friday night, or eventually Sunday night, and definitely not on Saturday night.

Whatever your option is, fine with me, but the Conference (and Gala Dinner) organizers might not be too happy with this competing event , and some people may be divided between the 2 options on Saturday night, so it would be better, I think, to make things clear once and for all, to avoid further misunderstandings.

Thanks,

Martin

I hope everybody will be all right now.

I am sorry for the confusion.

¿picnic? May 10, 2012

I would definitely try to attend one or both of these powwows and/or post-powwow happenings.

I did not know about the Gala dinner, but I imagine it is out of my budget anyway.

I'd like to meet Patricia and other translators after the dinner at a bar nearby.

Saturday night I will attend Irene's pow wow, I hope to hear where it is.

Being Dutch, I am a proponent of going Dutch (each pays for his or her own follies).

Also, I would like to propose an alternative to going to a restaurant or a bar: have a picnic. Barcelona has many fine parks, the sun goes down late in June and the weather is usually mild. It would be easy to go from the Conference to say, Jardins del Mirador de Montjuïc, bring along a blanket, some food, a bottle of wine, cups and plates, and have a stunning view of the city to boot.

And talk in tongues, of course.
