ProZ.com powwow: "Special" Stammtisch at the BBC Lounge
May 26, 2007, 3:00 pm
United Kingdom London In person English
Thanks to Fouad Razek we have the opportunity to meet in the BBC Lounge at Bush House.
We have been talking about having a Powwow there since January, but due to various administrative procedures it was not possible until now.
Looking at Bush House it is a very impressive and beautiful building, and according to Fouad food and drinks are really cheap at the BBC Lounge.
You are all very welcome to join us and enjoy a special translator afternoon there.
This is a one-off! The June Powwow will be held again at the Grafton Arms (near Warren Street) - the venue is already booked.
See you soon!

Any more questions please feel free to post! See you soon! Arianna

Just a reminder... May 14, 2007
... to confirm (as good as you can) your attendance by Monday 21st of May, as then the list will be sent to the BBC. By the way - the BBC Lounge will open for us at 3pm, which is great! Do bring friends and or partners along, just let us know beforehand. Should be fun! Arianna

Arriving late May 14, 2007
If somebody arrives late, what should they do? Ask where is the canteen or lounge, or do we need to be escorted when we're inside the building?
Will bring my partner along, then! Thanks for the invitation.
For those who arrive a bit later May 15, 2007
Hi Oliver, I suppose, the best thing is to arrive at Bush House at any time of your convenience and ask for the Lounge (which will be open) at reception (I hope there is one, have never been in Bush House!). I'll post my mobile number one day before the Powwow. Fouad has already got the Lounge open 2 hours earlier so I am sure people will be aware of a translator's meeting and show you the way to the Lounge.
To Verify IDs May 17, 2007
For anyone who wants to get their IDs verified, please note that your profile name has to match your real name. If this is the case, please bring along an ID (passport, driving license...) and Constanze, lingualab and I can verify IDs. More about the program to verify IDs on ProZ.com can be read here: http://www.proz.com/faq/qa#qa_vid_powwow Best wishes, Arianna
Verifying IDs May 17, 2007
So can I!
Sorry Katharina! May 18, 2007
I did not know!
partner - next powwow May 19, 2007
Hi! I'd like to bring my partner along as well. Where do I have to confirm that? Do you need his name?
Dear Anna, Just bring him along! He is very welcome!
I have just been informed that the 'BBC Lounge' is actually the 'BBC Club' and that whoever comes into Bush House would please be so kind and ask for Dr. Fouad Razek in the 'BBC Club'. This is the 'entry pass'. A list of attendees has been sent. Any more questions please ask here on this page or send me an e-mail. My phone number will be posted a day before the Powwow. Arianna
