I won't be able to be there in person, due to my distance from SF. If someone could send me the notes, I'd appreciate it. If you are meeting at the W and have questions for me, you might be able to use IM or email to ask them (depending on if they have WiFi).
Good luck, hopefully the meeting doesn't get rained out, Angel Island is beautiful!

Discuss formation of a California Chapter -- http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_California 2. Volleyball, weather permitting -- are there other good island-oriented games compatible with the "leave it as you found it" state park regulations? In the mean time, they have a net, so I am looking for a volleyball. Does anyone have either a volleyball or an inflatable beach ball to bring? Also if you want the guided museum tour you need to make reservations in advance per the instructions on the meetup page. Similarly, there are all kinds of options for overnight camping. I was thinking about that, but not really anymore, with the possibility of rain. Currently the weather forecast, 9-days out, is for showers: http://www.weather.com/weather/tenday/94920 Where is a good fall-back location if we are rained out? Yesterday while meeting with my Google Summer of Code student at the W Hotel a block from the Foundation offices, I asked the waitstaff about the XYZ Mezzanine area, which as a bar is closed until 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays (the cafe, downstairs bar, and restaurant are open during the meetup time frame.) They indicated that while the bar was closed, the mezzanine area is open to the public. So I believe it should be suitable for a lunch meetup if the island meetup has to be called on account of rain: http://www.starwoodhotels.com/whotels/property/dining/index.html?propertyID=1153 I have a phone call in to W Hotel management to make sure it's okay, but that area seats at least 20 comfortably, so it seems like it would be a good rain fall-back location. Cheers, James
