Hi Guarav and everyone,
Is there going to be a Wiki takes America 2014? The page still has a 2013 logo.
Nevertheless, there are still more pictures to be had, no?
I checked out the Denver Public Library page; I assume Wikipedia groups qualify for the reduced room rental rate because Wikipedia is a non-profit and a meet up would be public??
I’d be down to organize something for September (Wiki Takes Denver would probably be able to be put together in a short time), but I’m only available the weekend of the 13th. What say ye, folks?

Both Open Access Week (Oct 20-26, http://www.openaccessweek.org/) and Wiki Loves Libraries (Oct/Nov, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Loves_Libraries) are rapidly approaching, and I was wondering if anybody wanted to organise something for either of them. Of course we’ve already got one editathon lined up in Fort Collins (October 21, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/Colorado/Fort_Collins/2014), but it’d be fun to do something in the Boulder/Denver area as well. I’ll get in touch with CU Boulder and see what I can find out about their Open Access Week, but — if everybody’s willing to pitch in — we could organise a meetup at the Denver Public Library as well (http://denverlibrary.org/content/meeting-room-event-space-procedures-central).
We also had a great time at Wiki Takes Denver last year (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Takes_America/2013/Denver), and those things are really easy to organise. Unfortunately, my September is completely crap, but if someone else can take the lead in planning a date and travel, I might be able to make it — or we could hold it in early October instead, when it’ll be easier for me to make it!
Anyways, I just wanted to get everybody thinking about Wiki events in the next couple of months, so please shout out any ideas you have and lets see if we can make ‘em happen!
