Welcome to the O.U. Brazilian Society

This is the introductory message for freshers sent in October 2010.

Hi all!

This message is mainly for the new members of the O.U. Brazilian Society, but it may be relevant for the current members as well.

First of all, thank you very much for your interest on our society, the OUBS has 132 members from all backgrounds.

Our mailing list is closed, so only members of the list can post messages, but there is no moderation, which means that you are all free to email everybody, but please, let's stick with matters that are related to Brazil or to social events that could improve the interaction within this society! Though we are also open to messages that can benefit our members, such as people trying to sell house-holding stuff when they are moving out, or so on.

The official language of this list used to be Portuguese, but now that there are many non-Portuguese speakers in the list, we will try to keep it bilingual for a while. By the way, some of our members are Portuguese teachers, you can give a shout if you'd like to contact them.

Have a look at our website in order to find out more about our society: http://users.ox.ac.uk/~brazil/. There is a link to the Capoeira group and to other related stuff. For the Brazilians, we advise you to become a member of the ABEP and to have a look at their website: http://www.abep.org.uk/. ABEP's site has a lot of very useful information, specially for freshers (check their "Manual da Ilha", available from the download web page). If you'd like to ask anything to the directors of this society, please, email brazil@herald.ox.ac.uk. If you'd like to send something to everybody, this is the address of the list: oubs@maillist.ox.ac.uk. If you think it was a mistake to subscribe, or if you want to stop receiving messages from us at any time, just send an empty message to oubs-unsubscribe@maillist.ox.ac.uk.

We would like to inform that members of the OUBS automatically become members of the mailing list of the Centre for Brazilian Studies (http://www.brazil.ox.ac.uk/). If you don't want to receive bulletins from them Centre, please get in touch with sabrina.souza@brazilian-studies.oxford.ac.uk

Well, I think that's all for now.

Remember: our ordinary meeting is at the Lamb and the Flag, every Thursday evening, from 8.30. We are planning to gather there and move to Que Passa later, for the Brazilian Night.

Have a great time!

President: Felipe Correa
Treasurer: Marianna Leite
Secretary: Julian Hunt
Apoio espiritual: Richard Vasconselos
