Summer Powwow in Montreal, Canada Jan 3

Hi all,
I am organizing a Powwow this Summer on June 23rd in Montreal, Canada. This will be a coming-together for most translators in the city and the biggest opportunity for each of us to discover the faces behind our profiles and have fuuuuuun.
I look forward to having you all around.

Is St-Jean Baptiste Weekend the best time for a PowWow? Jan 4

Hi Ynes,
It's a great idea to have a ProZ Powwow but I wonder if the Fête Nationale long weekend is the best time to schedule it.

Hi Joshua,
I am glad you already showed interest in this Powwow.
You are definitely right, but the Fête Nationale is on Sunday. We can organize our Powwow early enough on Saturday to let people go home and meet their families or friends.
Do not also forget it will mark the beginning of Summer and it will only be a matter of few hours of networking and fun.
Do you think you can give us 1 to 2 hours of your time that day? We will be glad to have you around and learn from you.
However, we can still shift the date to June 30 depending on the availability of the majority.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Ynes

Josuah has a point. I would agree with you if the meeting was held on Friday afternoon, but on Saturday? C'est une chance à prendre! Et de même pour le 30.

Salut Germaine,

Bonne année et désolée pour ma réponse tardive.
Si vous me donnez un peu de temps je verrai s'il est possible de changer de date avec les membres qui ont déjà confirmé leur présence. Vous avez tous les deux raisons, mais gardons à l'esprit que le but est d'organiser notre Powwow au début de l'été.
Merci pour vos remarques et j'espère que vous serez des nôtres.

Bien à vous,
Ynes

What about a week prior? Jan 14

Instead of going one week after as it's Canada Day Weekend, why not look at a week prior?

Whatever you decide, please let me know ASAP as I have a flight to book from the Dominican Republic.

Gracias!

Hi Sylvie,

Welcome on board, actually Summer begins on June 21, so if we organize it one week prior it will no longer be a Summer Powwow.

Cheers,

Gracias!

Même commentaire concernant la St-Jean Jan 17

Les longues fins de semaine, ça se passe au chalet!

Je seconde pour soit une autre fin de semaine soit un jour de semaine (je préfère), nous sommes après tout tous travailleurs autonomes, donc pourquoi ne pas se rencontrer un mardi, mercredi, jeudi? Ça fait plus crédible si on met le taxi/stationnement/repas/consommations sur le compte de l'entreprise si c'est la semaine plutôt que la fin de semaine.

New date for Summer Powwow in Montreal Jan 19

Hi dear colleagues,

I hope you all had a wonderful week.
I am writing to let you know that it will be best to change the date of our upcoming Powwow as the previous one was set on June 23 which happens to be a day prior to the Fête Nationale du Québec. One of our colleagues proposed June 22, but I am not available on that day and others a week prior to the 23 or the following week. The idea is to organize the event during Summer and a week before is still Spring, so I propose Thursday 28 as new date.
Moreover, as the day is fast approaching, I propose we start sharing ideas on the venue and the time. Initially, I was thinking of a Restaurant like le Buffet des Continents in Brossard at 1 P.M.
I look forward to getting more ideas from you.

Thanks,
Ynes

Salut Arianne,

J'ai pris en compte tous vos commentaires et je propose comme nouvelle date jeudi le 28 juin 2018.
J'espère que vous serez des nôtres.
Bien à vous,
Ynes

The clock is ticking May 6

Hi all,

I don't know if you are as excited as I am...
The clock is already ticking.
Next week, I will send you details about the event.
I received an email from a new member who wanted to attend the event and she was asking for an invitation letter which I told her I could not send since the event is not worldwide.
Like it is mentionned in my Powwow initial message, it is meant for freelancers in Montreal. However, freelancers can come from all over the world but, I cannot deliver any invitation letter. May be in the future it will be worldwide.
I hope you understand.
I look forward to seeing you all.

Thanks,
Ynes
