ProZ.com powwow: Meet your Australian Translators

November 20, 2004, 12:30 pm
AustraliaSydneyIn personEnglish
ET (e-transltors!) calling ALL Sydney and surrounding area translators (and those who happen to be in Sydney at the time.)
Want to come out of hybernation from the "cold" Australian winter into "wet" spring? Celebrate spring with your fellow translators by having a picnic powwow on the ground above Mrs Macquarie's Chair overlooking the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. If you happen to be in or near Sydney Australia on Saturday 20 November 2004, you're cordially invited to this long overdue Australian Powwow to MEET some fellow ProZ.com members in person, get your profile VERIFIED, exchange namecards for future COLLABORATION, etc (agenda open to suggestions!). An informal theme to explore the Australian translation market is made up. Venue is definitely the Domain across the Opera House, specifically the grounds above Mrs Macquarie's Chair. BYO. Bring a dish or two and desserts. Include the family. Make it a fun and relaxing day for all! If you need your Proz.com id verified, please bring also a photo id of yourself. The powwow is now only two weeks away. Please confirm your attendance now! Thanks and hope to see all of you there!

Are we still interested in the powwow on this Sunday? Or do we want to defer it to a bit further down the merry
season?

- I'd be happy to put it off till the weekend of the 20th (November). Otherwise, I'll confirm tomorrow re this weekend.

Are we still happy with the meeting place in Sydney?

Apologies Nov 19, 2004

Hope everyone enjoys the get together. I've been marking school exams at Homebush every night for a week now & frankly don't have the energy to return to the city tomorrow. Best wishes to all - hope to meet up at a less fraught time.
