ProZ.com powwow: summer party

June 9, 2007, 12:00 pm
Francenear ToulouseIn personFrench
The address is La Brunié, 81220 Damiatte: if you enter that in www.viamichelin.fr it'll tell you how to get here by road. It's about 65 km from Toulouse in the general direction of Albi and I live there.

There's a railway station at Damiatte with connections to Toulouse via Lavaur in one direction and Mazamet via Castres in the other, but we'll have to arrange for rides to La Brunié (6km), so tell us in good time!

The Deal: Jowita and I will organize some food and drink and we'll split the costs between all attendees, ok?

La Brunié Apr 28, 2007

I've posted an old photo of La Brunié on the page of the last powwow Toulousain (I can't seem to post it here)

Possible lift offered Apr 29, 2007

Always on the assumption that I can make it, I would be travelling down the A20 to Toulouse from Limousin, and could probably give a lift to anyone who could either be picked up en route, or come down as far as my place to meet me.

clarification May 10, 2007

I'm hearing more and more about people wanting to bring their husbands/wives/significant others/children to the powwow - there is a statement by Henry on powwow etiquette (to which I heartily subscribe) saying - in a nutshell - "all are welcome"
I just need to know about numbers in good time. If there are enough (and not more than 20!) children, I'll ask the local farmer to show them the farm.
I'll publish more notes closer to the time...

Car worries Jun 2, 2007

I've had to downgrade my attendance to 'Maybe' — sorry, Rod!

My car is poorly, and I don't think I can afford to either get it repaired in time for next weekend, or hire a replacement.

I'll see what I can do, but don't count on me!

Definitely can't make it now Jun 5, 2007

Sorry, folks (and our hosts in particular!), but I cannot solve my transport problems in time to make it down.

Hope you all have a wonderful time!

@ Tony Jun 7, 2007

very sorry you can't make it, Tony, I was looking forward to meeting you: perhaps you could tempt us all to come to a powwow in, say, Brive?

Funny you should say that... Jun 7, 2007

As a matter of fact, I'm trying to sound out interest for holding one somewhere up this way; see: http://www.proz.com/powwow/1366

Please join that list, anyone who thinks they might be interested in a central location?

Vegetarians Jun 7, 2007

Should I bring some tofu sausages or whatever non-meat food our local bio-coop has on offer?

May be a bit late Jun 7, 2007

Coming from Bordeaux and stopping in Toulouse, I will probably arrive in the (hopefully very) early afternoon.

last call Jun 8, 2007

@ Tony: um, I saw the 19 / 24 headline, but, still being a bit hazy on dépt. numbers (I just commute between 81 and 31), I hadn't had a proper look... I'll get back on that one.

@ BDF: no need, we have quite a few vegetarian friends and are always on the qv!

@ Mark, Olaf: sorry to "lose" you. However, we have already thought about making the La Brunié powwow an annual event (assuming prozians like it here).

@ Attila: no worries - the Germans have a saying about

@ Tony: um, I saw the 19 / 24 headline, but, still being a bit hazy on dépt. numbers (I just commute between 81 and 31), I hadn't had a proper look... I'll get back on that one.

@ Mark, Olaf: sorry to "lose" you. However, we have already thought about making the La Brunié powwow an annual event (assuming prozians like it here).

@ Attila: no worries - the Germans have a saying about "the later the hour, the more welcome the guest"!

@ all parents: I should warn you La Brunié will never get a licence as a "Kindergarten". Nature is indeed "red in tooth and claw" here, as Tennyson would have said in view of all the long grass, nettles, thistles... seriously, trousers and "sensible walking shoes" or boots might be a good idea for romping about on the estate, but the other "dangers" are relatively harmless and will be pointed out.

@ all attendees: well, right now the méteo is looking extremely good (sunshine, 29°), but do have a plan B just in case...

OK, looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

HAVE A GREAT TIME, EVERYONE! Jun 9, 2007

Cheers, everyone!
