Dear Indian Wikimedians,

I hope this message finds you well.  While you are finalizing arrangements for the August meetup, I want to see if you would be amenable to scheduling the September meetup on Monday 20 September.  I will be in Bangalore on 20-21 and it would be wonderful to have the opportunity to join your meetup. I recognize that this is not your regular night for the meetup, but I hope it will not be too inconvenient. I will understand if this is not possible.

The purpose of my visit is to discuss our shared aspirations for growth of Wikimedia's projects in India and to determine the most fruitful ways that the Wikimedia Foundation could be of service to you.  I will also be traveling to Mumbai (22-23 Sept) and Delhi (24 Sept) and it would be great to meetup with Wikimedians in both of those cities.  If someone can help organize, please email me offlist.

I will be sending out some additional information on both our plans and my visit in the coming days.

Kind regards,

I believe we should stick to the meeting date.

Can we meet at someone's office in the city where they may extend the facility for  that day?

Intel / Google / Yahoo?
Anyone in the list who can help.

Have it elsewhere ? Probably an openspace without a projector ? Domlur park / Lalbagh / CIS lawn? or like the UK meetups go to coffee shops where WiFi is there. Unless there are any presentations i dont think we require a hall setup which CIS provides. Lets not move the date as it will be too early to meet up for the next meet.
