Friendly reminder about events on Monday, which is Memorial Day.
* There will be a Wikimedians hike at Evans Creek Preserve
<http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/evans-creek-preserve>. We meet at the
*old* trailhead at 12 PM. Please bring cameras and/or tools suitable for
taking notes (smartphone, tablet, or pencil and paper notepad). The reports
are that there is plenty of wildlife. (You might want to bring bear spray
just in case we encounter a bear.) The current weather forecast is for
partial sun in the afternoon. If you want to carpool from Seattle, please
contact Joe (see below.)
* There will likely be a break between the hike and the evening meeting.
* At 6 PM, we will have our monthly meetup. We'll meet this time at the
Redmond Town Center Starbucks. We can choose a place to eat after we all
find each other. Agenda items include documenting the hike, upcoming GLAM
and diversity conferences, WikiConference USA in San Diego, Wiknic
planning, and a brief update about our 501(c)(3) and plans for the rest of
2016. There *may* be an announcement with news from WMF (I'm waiting to
hear back follow up from an initial email.) There will likely be time for
additional agenda items and open discussion.
Hope to see you on Monday!

That's my understanding. Only space for 10 cars,
though, and it will be a
holiday. I, for one, have to do this by car because even then I'm likely
going to be running late for my friend's birthday dinner. If there are
others who want to carpool out from Seattle, let's be in touch about it. My
girlfriend is probably coming, but we should have room for two or (in a
pinch) three others.
