Dear powwowers!
This week is crucial for preparations! Reminding everybody the location:

http://www.observatorycafe.com.au/

Please have a look!

The Observatory Cafe is situated in Birdwood Avenue, South Yarra opposite the Shrine of Remembrance, in the heart of the Royal Botanic Gardens. It neighbours the old Observatory buildings (1861) and is located next to the Royal Botanic Gardens visitors centre
NOt to be confused with "The Observatory, which is an expensive restaurant nearby.

Look for The Observatory Cafe on Birdwood Ave. south of the Botanic Gardens.


I have so far 17 people confirmed: Louis V., PeterE., Daniel F., Elena T., Eleonor P., Ali P., Sam B., Zozoqinqin, Roberta B., Zoe C., Naima75., Tlumach_va, Alexandre C., Fiona P., Eske H. y Marsha B., and myself.

Welcome to The Observatory -already booked, the room is called "the back deck ".
And also welcome to Melbourne, for those people who are traveling from other states.

I have 3 people with an uncertain status: Webguru, Acoz and Claire H. I do not know if their maybes are yes or no at present. Please let me know.

For the people who cannot make it this time: Claudia A., Kathy T., A.Hayes, Marek, Mohammed, Saskia, Bernie and Ian: thanks for your interest, and please keep in touch reading reports/comments and possibility of a new Melbournian powwow.

Now: we need:
1. Organizer (myself)
2. Photographer: Sam B/Marsha

Positions vacant:
3. Reporter
4. Host
Any volunteers? It would be great to have some creative and fun translator doing these versatile tasks. Please let me know SOON or I will have to do it all myself which would be a pity as we would miss on your incomparable style.

PLEASE BRING YOUR PROZ.COM ID NUMBER or I cannot credit your attendance.

MEETING TIME: 10.30 AM onwards for morning coffee, at the lovely Café.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST: Have you thought of any other burning issue for the agenda? Please review posts to find out previous ideas.

Ola Kalá? OK?

I am very excited about meeting all of you!! AB

All roads in Melbourne lead to the city, so somewhere near the city is bound to be most convenient for most of us.

venue Jun 17, 2006

Last time I was in Melbourne, I went to this wonderful Belgian cafe. Not sure where it is though. And I must admit, it was a bit small for so many people.

Belgium cafe Jun 18, 2006

Belgian Chocolates Jun 18, 2006

..lets get sinful. I assume Louis will then take us all for a jog by the Yarra to lose the calories. Saskia, if you are going, can we fly out together? It would be more fun and we can share the taxi from the Airport.

At my age, one proceeds with dignity! Leave the jogging to the young and the mad!

Meeting place Jun 19, 2006

Another option: do you know ¨The observatory¨near the Botanic gardens?

Big bistro with plenty of space in all directions, an near the green herbs and trees. No need to jog, we can go for a walk after lunch and cross the gardens for a Devonshire tea at the other cafeteria near the lake with black swans and eels.
What do you think?

Seconding Ana Jun 19, 2006

Sounds very relaxing and conducive to good discussion. Besides, speaking as a photographer, people always look better in nice surroundings.

The Observatory Jun 20, 2006

Hi Ana, I agree with Sam on this and also think it's a good idea to travel together from Brisbane (not 100% sure yet, though). Am looking forward to seeing you again too Claudia and to meet some new collegues.

The observatory it is Jun 21, 2006

Great, a meeting in the green! Looking forward to that! It will be great to see you all back again (Sam, Saskia and Louis- sorry, I couldn't bring any white asparagus!) and to meet so many 'new' colleagues. Is there anything we ought to bring besides a smile and some sunshine?

The observatory for sure? Jun 22, 2006

Good to hear people feeling excited. If I do not receive objections within a week, I will confirm THE OBSERVATORY.
Agendas could be also suggested, I am receptive to your needs...say something.

Claudia and all of you:
You MUST bring an umbrella!
People living here believe in umbrellas in the gardens.

Or at least a raincoat.

It will be fun!
