ProZ.com powwow: Powwow Day

United KingdomLondonIn personEnglish
Hi all!

So many people have shown interest in celebrating 'Translator's Day' - it is about time I informed you about the venue:-)

It has not changed. It will be The Grafton Arms Pub, 72 Grafton Way, London, W1T 5DS. (5 minutes walk from Warren Street tube station)

I have booked the pub from 3pm onwards and told them lots of people are coming.

Romina who is coordinating the 'Translator's Day' celebrations globally has asked if there is Internet connection available. I have a wireless laptop but am not sure if there is a hot spot nearby. If anyone has another solution, please feel free to let me know.

This way we are linked to ProZians all around the world!

Let's have a fun day! I look forward to meeting you all!

Oliver Walter

Hi Arianna

I'm awfully sorry but an important customer has realised something needed to be added to an existing project (as they do), which blows the weekend. Have a great day, and I sincerely hope I can make it next time.

Best
Chris

Just a quick update Sep 28, 2007

As the pub does not have Internet we are going to celebrate Translator's Day, but will not connect with other Powwows.
I will let you know who is holding Powwows at the same time.
