All of those who came had such a good time that no one remembered to take pictures this year. For all those who missed it, hope to see you next year.Read More
Mark your calendars. This year's picnic will be July 9 at the the Kibbutz Hazorea swimming pool. The picnic is open to all technical writers, marcom writers, copy editors and members of similar professions. You do not need to be a member to come. It is always great fun for the whole family and fun to meet your colleague's families. There is a great swimming pool for kids and infants, and an even better one for the adults. Mike Lee has arranged for a special price of 25 NIS per person over 3 years old (infant - 3 years old are free). The entrance fee is charged by the kibbutz for entrance to the area regardless of whether you use the pool. This is really inexpensive and covers you for the entire day.
Elephant and Mike Lee do it again!
We can’t say we filled that wonderful pool at Kibbutz Hazorea , the venue for the 3rd annual Elephant picnic. We can’t say it because there were other people there, too.Read More
2nd Annual Tech Writers Picnic - Responses
My family and I had a great time at the Hazorea pool. Thank you for a great opportunity to meet your family, Dr. Carolyn Tal, and other Technical Writers. What an original and awesome idea to get people together!

I want to add my praise to the family get together sponsored by the Yokneam forum at the lovely Kibbutz Hazorea swimming pool. The pool is surrounded by beautiful forested hills, giving the feeling of chutz la-aretz in our own backyard.
Carolyn Tal prepared some interesting group activities, adding interaction and a little tension.
Nothing like dipping in the cool pool waters, enjoying a peasent family outing, and combining it all with professional networking and shmoozing.
I highly recommend all technical writers to make the effort to join the fun next summer. Please schedule again at the beginning or end of the summer, when people are before and after holidays.
