Your experience and reflections from participating in past wiki events
would be tremendously valuable as we make planning decisions.

This year the Great American Wiknic is scheduled "for weekend dates in
July, with a focus on July 9-10":
This activity just involves having a picnic in a park somewhere, and
inviting people to bring food and talk about Wikipedia!
It looks like the Boston area hasn't had a summer Wiknic in a couple of
years, but in the past this event has been on in the Boston Common.
Would people be interested in getting together on Sat July 9 or Sun 10? If
you're not around that weekend, would a later weekend in July work? We
haven't had a general meetup in a long time either, so it could also be a
good time to catch up and talk about plans for editathons and events for
the rest of the year, and ideas that we all have for what to do next.
Please discuss! If there's interest but no consensus on a good date, I will
make a poll with various dates so we can gauge availability.
