5 days to go and counting... May 13, 2013

Does anyone have any preference re: the location / venue? Headingley or Leeds city centre? Is six people enough for the event to go ahead do you think?

Your input here is very much appreciated.

Chris.

Headingley, please :) May 14, 2013

Hi Chris,

As far as I know a powwow is 'valid' (i.e. you can earn browniz for it) when at least five translators appear.

If you'd like to invite more people, you can promote your powwow by submitting a powwow promotion request.
Just click on the "Request promotional email" link. It should be somewhere at the top of the page of the powwow
you are organising - only you can see it.

Leeds city centre! May 14, 2013

Headingley is more difficult for me (unless close to the university), so would prefer the city centre, but if Headingley suits the majority then I'm happy to go with thaticon_smile.gif

The venue has now been decided as follows... May 15, 2013

The Victoria Hotel, 28 Great George Street, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 3DL.

A nice and central location is the best option, in my honest opinion.

Next Leeds Powwow event: Wednesday 5 June, 2013 @ 7pm... May 19, 2013

Propose Powwow event: Meal to be held at Zizzi Italian restaurant in The Light Shopping Centre, The Headrow, Leeds, LS1 8TL @ 7:00pm.

This will be a strictly informal and friendly event for translators and interpreters to meet up and share their experiences of the translation industry. Also non-translation related conversations are more than welcome and encouraged.

Thanks to all those who attended the Powwow on Saturday afternoon.

Chris.
