In the above sentence I wanted to tell my colleague that I will reach around 9:30. So I wrote this sentence but I am confused whether I had conveyed him that message correctly or not.

  • reach around? is this a phrasal verb, or a verb followed by a modifier? and I really can't understand your question or your sentence – green_ideas Nov 18 at 2:23

    No, it doesn't make any sense. What are you grabbing for that has 9:30 in the way of reaching it? – Hot Licks Nov 18 at 2:24
  • Do you mean you want to arrive somewhere in time to hear a presentation of a paper? – The Photon Nov 18 at 4:32

I would break this into two parts: "The paper starts at 9:30 AM. I will try to be at (the presentation area?) around that time."
