Hello,

Let's have a small get together at Brown's, Woodstock Road on 14th July for tea.

It'd be a good time to talk about matters close to the heart of translators (professional development? various aspects of the business?) and interact with our 'colleagues'.

Please sign up below and I look forward to meeting you.

Pei Ling

UPDATE
Venue has been changed to The Turf. Whoever arrives first can get a good table (in the garden?) and asks the bar staff direct the others to the translators' table. Kudos to DutchConnection for bringing up this lovely place (and suggesting the arrangement). It has completely escaped me. The time is still 3.30pm. Hope to see you there!

Calling for suggestions Jun 4, 2007

Hello,
I'm planning to make this a pretty informal meeting. How does a drink (coffee/ice-cream) at G & D's on St Aldate's (opposite Christchurch) sounds? Any other suggestions welcomed.

Time Jul 3, 2007

I see that different times of the day would work for different people. Please let me know if the majority can make it at the suggested time. If not, we can always make some adjustment. Thanks.

Not sure Jul 3, 2007

Hello Pai Ling and everyone. I am not sure that I can make it for that day. I could if it had been a week later. Do keep me posted just in case. If I can't wish you all an enjoyable and fruitful meeting.

In response to your comment Pei Ling, an evening meeting would suit me better. What do the others think of this?

Make a booking Jul 10, 2007

I would suggest that we do not meet at Brown's. It will be far too noisy and expensive. Better make a booking at a cafe in Cowley Road. Or even a pub such as the Lamb and Flag. But everywhere is going to be crowded.

Afternoon preferably Jul 10, 2007

An afterthought. Would it not be better to meet at a pub or cafe and then sit outside in the University Parks or Christchurch Meadows?

pub suggestion Jul 10, 2007

How about the Angel and Greyhound on St Clement's Road? Quite a nice pub and not normally too crowded.

Turf Tavern Jul 10, 2007

How about the Turf off Hollywell Street at 7 pm? It has quieter areas, 7 means we'll get seats, but people can go about their business in the afternoon. Pei Ling, your decision, but what do the others think? How many prefer afternoon or evening?

Stammtisch Jul 10, 2007

Thought it might be nice to set this up in Oxford, say first Tuesday of the month, or first and third, then anyone can turn up after work and socialise and share info. Topic for discussion on Saturday!

afternoon please Jul 10, 2007

All the pubs are crowded on a Saturday evening. I agree with the Turf tavern - or Angel and Greyhound, although this one is not really nice for sitting outside as far as I know. If people are coming from a distance then it seems sensible to have this in the afternoon.

Tuesdays Jul 10, 2007

Am unable to make this Saturday at all, but like the idea of meeting up on a Tuesday a couple of times a month. You organize it - I'll come!
