Heya folks -
Just reaching out to see if there is any interest in setting up a meeting
for June at the Glen Park Branch Library. At this moment, the room is
available for the following saturdays: June 21st and the 28th and July
12th. The room fits about 50 people. I'm assuming its a standard setup of
a few long tables and chairs all around. I was thinking around 1pm start to
around 4 pm finish?
Location and Restaurants and
Brion's up for giving a preview of his Wikimania presentation on the tech
status of things.
The room is free so long as we don't need any special equipment or are
planning a banquet. I'm still trying to get a hold of the local branch to
see if its ok to bring a brown bag lunch without the $100 fee for
set/cleanup, if they say we have to at least pay the $25 fee (Coffee and
Pasteries) then I'll pay that and accept any voluntary donations for
reimbursement to share the cost.
Please reply back to the group if you're interested in this location and a
We'll also look to plan a followup after Mania meeting in early August if
there is interest.
I just want to toss out a quick thank you to everybody who came out to
help man the Wikimedia booth at Maker Faire over the weekend.
Turnout was much greater than we expected, and everybody seemed to
have a great time!
(But really, who wouldn't enjoy themselves someplace with that many
