ProZ.com powwow: Assemblée Générale Annuelle

June 18, 2011, 2:00 pm
FranceLa BruniéIn personEnglish
cet endroit : lieu-dit La Brunié, 81220 Damiatte, à 43.6926 N, 1.9962 E

pour les old-fashioneds entre nous :

cherchez la RD 112 entre Lavaur et Castres
cherchez la RD 84 entre Graulhet et Puylaurens
notez qu'elles se croisent à un endroit nommé St Paul Cap de Joux

si vous venez de Lavaur, Castres ou Puylaurens : allez à St Paul Cap de Joux et continuez vers Graulhet. Après env. 6 km vous verrez (si vous venez de Graulhet : continuez vers St Paul Cap de Joux. Après env. 10 km vous verrez) :

une petite maison aux volets bleus à côté de la route principale ; une petite route avec un panneau "Lacapelle"; et à quelques cent cinquante mètres sur cette route vers Lacapelle un pigeonnier et, en face dudit pigeonnier : La Brunié !

bon, si cela est trop compliqué il restent :
1) le co-voiturage avec des prozien(ne)s plus expérimenté(e)s ou
2) le car de Toulouse vers Mazamet qui fait halte à St Paul Cap de Joux : on viendrait te chercher si tu le signales...

Si vous venez avant 12H (avec plaisir !) vous risquez seulement être réquisitionné(e) pour aider...

@Anglais Aide
the regular powwows at La Brunié are just an opportunity to meet other translators in the area, and have a chat about the things that occupy our minds, in a pleasant (ok: idyllic) setting (http://www.proz.com/powwow_report/1292 or http://www.proz.com/powwow_report/3145 will give you a rough idea).

@Anglais Aide
the regular powwows at La Brunié are just an opportunity to meet other translators in the area, and have a chat about the things that occupy our minds, in a pleasant (ok: idyllic) setting (http://www.proz.com/powwow_report/1292 or http://www.proz.com/powwow_report/3145 will give you a rough idea).
We don't have any presentations or fixed topics ( I last tried this in 2004: http://www.proz.com/powwow_report/539 but see also http://www.proz.com/powwow_report/369 ), but you'd be amazed at how informative these sessions can be all the same - you just need to talk to the right people.
La Brunié is out in the sticks: one would-be participant wrote: "mais.....comment arriver à cet endroit?.... ", and, receiving no help, didn't come. Later she made this comment: "quel dommage de n'avoir pas pu ["ne pas avoir pu" is more correct, but never mind] être avec vous samedi dernier, mais c'était un peu loin cet endroit!" Well, "tant pis pour elle" is all I can say. I manage to find "cet endroit" quite regularly from wherever I'm coming from, and it's worth the effort every time.
Oh and one other thing: after two years of Jowita slaving in the kitchen for days beforehand and being too stressed to enjoy the powwow, we switched to "auberge espanole", so you'll need to think about what you are planning to bring...
Voilà, c'est tout !
Rod

Sir Rod,

La Brunié might be a lieu-dit, a château, a maison de maître or whatever you want to call it, but the first time I tried to locate it on a map, I couldn't find iticon_wink.gif
It might be worth stating the postcode next to La Brunié, or at least that it is in the 81? Wotcha think?

Does that sound familiar?

I suppose it could be considered to be "near Toulouse", but it's also, more importantly, near where I live in the Dordogne, and since I, too, live "out in the sticks", it seems possible.

Please advise - I'd love to come! It would be my first pow-wow, and I'll bring some homemade foie gras!icon_wink.gif

It would be great to finally meet you, verslanglais. I've been seeing you around the forums (fora, yeah yeah) for years.

Okay, so I really need to find out where "this place" is (erm - sorry, Rod)!

Can't wait to meet you, too, Natasha!

P.S. @ Natasha

Just figured out how to find "this place" - feeling silly now not to have figured it out before, but ne'er ye mind.
Go to Google maps and paste the longitude and lattitude details on the search engine. Bob's your uncle!icon_biggrin.gif

Bonne continuation et à bientôt !

mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa Jan 21, 2011

but that's all you're getting out of me by way of an apology (if any were needed)
well (a) I did say plus d'infos au printemps and (b) if you check out my previous notices about La Brunié powwows (powwa?) you'll see I always (bless my cotton socks) provide copious details of how to reach "cet endroit".

And when I've stopped ranting I'll probably remember to say "welcome on board" to ellenbelle, Anglais Aide, PSTranslations and verslanglais icon_wink.gif

verslanglais - do try to make it down here from the Dordogne, La Brunié is a must-see (we'll organise an overnight solution if the journey is too long), and as a matter of fact the details are all out now. we'll organise a list of goodies to bring (yes, yes, the home-made foie gras is on the proposed list) nearer the time. worked very well last year. indeed, instead of the feared 21 pizzas we had: none!

@Béatrice Feb 9, 2011

cela nous fait grand plaisir, Béatrice !
en effet, difficile de dire ce qui se passera d'ici juin, mais "on" m'avait demandé de préciser bien en avance, pour permettre aux participants de planifier...

Rod's Place Apr 6, 2011

Allo Rod - notwithstanding the fact that I get lost every time I come to your's (but then I can't always find my own house these days) - I will be there ... may even have Massimo in tow for once as the Music school gala will already be a distant memory. Do you intend posting a list of offerings like you did before? If you do I promise to bring something which is actually on it this time.

allo Jo! - come on, Jo, don't encourage people to say I live in the sticks... It would be very good to see Massimo again. Yes, yes, I expect Jowita will come up with one of her magic lists of things to bring, and, yes, it would be absolutely smashing if you brought something that was on it...icon_smile.gif
