ProZ.com powwow: =LINCOLNSHIRE POACHER PUB=

UPDATE TO THE PICNIC IN THE PARK.

Due to the appalling weather, we've decided to move our powwow to the pub, the Lincolnsire Poacher, 161-163 Mansfield Road, Nottingham, NG1 3FR (01159 941 1584).

http://www.castlerockbrewery.co.uk/pub-lincolnshirepoacher.html

I'm afraid that we won't be able to eat our own food at the pub but the Lincolnshire Poacher has a varied seasonal menu which is changed daily. They also offer vegetarian dishes.

I hope you can still join us on Saturday 6th September from 13:00.

Sunny greetings (well it's sunny right this minute) Sep 2, 2008

The five day forecast doesn't look that promising at the moment but what does the BBC know. In case anyone wants to be met at the bus station my phone no. is 07951 891630. Will be gutted if there is no chance to try Steve's cheesecake! (though the pub does pretty good food if we do get rained off).
Best regards, Sarah

Weather and cheesecake update Sep 2, 2008

Metcheck.com is currently showing little or no rain for Saturday pm. I will bring cheesecake whatever happens, despite Asda having no ricotta this morning.

Beeb is less promising Sep 5, 2008

Looks more like an afternoon in the pub, but I have no complaints: No ants will get the cheesecake this way!

Tasty cheesecake, etc Sep 8, 2008

Hi all, Great to see you all and many thanks to Frances for organising. I think we may be going for 19th October for the next event.
Happy translating, Sarah

A great time Sep 8, 2008

I always seem to spend a bit longer than planned at the Notts Powwows, but with company and venues like that, it is not surprising. Thanks for sorting this out, Frances and Sarah. Wir kommen immer wieder gern! Sorry about the double-posted pictures, did not know the approach.

Photos Sep 8, 2008

Hi Dierk, The photos take between several hours and a day to appear because someone on the site vets them first (but instead of telling you that, it just seems like it hasn't worked...). If the pics don't appear by tomorrow, we can try submitting a support ticket. Thanks for being photographericon_smile.gif

Great to catch up with old faces and meet some new! Looking forward to the next one already, pencilled in the diary. Cheers for the cheesecake Steve, and to Frances for organising a great afternoon in the pub. See you next time.

Worth the drive Sep 8, 2008

It really was worth coming down from Yorkshire again to see you all and have such a pleasant afternoon. Just happy to be part of such a great community. Nice Wurst, Stephen!

Great to have met you all Sep 8, 2008

It was lovely to have met you all. Makes me feel less lonely (as in my computer and I ...) while trying to set myself up ; ). Thank you for all the useful tips and a special thanks to Francis for organising it all.

Photos 2 (can't edit my own notes) Sep 9, 2008

No problem Dierk - it must be a robot what does the vetting! You can submit a support ticket to get the second set deleted if you like but it's no big deal.

Better late than never Sep 11, 2008

Sorry I am late with my thanks for a wonderful time with you all. Pity the cheesecake appeared after we had already left or did I miss it? Not sure I will be able to join you on 19th October. Thank you, Frances and Sarah with Languageman for meeting me at the station!

Oops Sep 11, 2008

Sorry people, I put the wrong date in my first post -the next powwow would be on Saturday 18th October (not the Sunday).
