We now have the date for our next Summer workshop! It will take place on 1 June 2019 in Aberdour, Fife. Aberdour, in addition to being only a 30-minute train journey from Edinburgh, is a pretty coastal village where we will be accommodated in the very attractive Woodside Hotel.
Now, if you’ve been in the Network long enough, you know what ‘Summer workshop’ actually means! Three days of networking, CPD and various activities, starting off with an informal meal on the Friday evening, followed by the very serious hands-on workshop on the Saturday with its usual tea/cake and lunch breaks, a fantastic dinner and a ceilidh on the Saturday evening, and we usually close the meeting on the Sunday with a walk and an informal lunch. Families and friends are welcome to join us for all social events (dinners, ceilidh and Sunday walk), adding to the social value of the gathering and giving us the perfect excuse to further explore the area with our families before or after the weekend!
So what’s on in 2019?
- 31 May. Informal dinner on the Friday evening in Aberdour. Place to be confirmed.
- 1 June. Morning and afternoon workshop at the Woodside Hotel in Aberdour:
Our speakers are translators Tim Gutteridge and Simon Berrill, who will be introducing us to their revision concept called Rev Club: collaborative revision for translators. They have already run very successful workshops on this theme, most recently for the MET in Girona. They promise a very interactive workshop, with a mix of theory and practice. There might be some preparation involved for attendants before the event, but all the details will be circulated in due course!
- 1 June. Dinner and Ceilidh at the Woodside Hotel. We will be dancing to the fantastic tunes of Da Hooley ceilidh band again (same as last year in Melrose!).
- 2 June. Morning walk along the beach and Fife Coastal Path, starting near the hotel, and ending around lunch time with an informal lunch.
This once again promises to be a ScotNet special – one of the highlights of your working and networking calendar. So, please SAVE THE DATE now!
