Hi everybody! Thanks so much for your responses, everybody! How about date and time for this event? Does September 21 (Saturday) around 11am (so it's _just_ before the worst of the noon heat) work for everyone? Earlier? Later?

Yes, walkability is nice, especially if you're a graduate student without a car. However, we _might_ be able to get enough cars together for everybody. Any volunteers on this mailing list? I have a friend or two I could ask. > I'd reserve an editathon for late fall/winter, once the weather turns bad. Sounds good! Wikipedia Loves Libraries comes around in October/November, and we could definitely have more editathons in January and February, once the weather really gets icy. > On 8/25/2013 5:53 PM, Todd Allen wrote: >> There are also a pretty good number of historic buildings in Denver.

Here's some articles which could benefit from better/more recent photos: - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byron_G._Rogers_Federal_Building (B&W photo) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Children%27s_Museum_of_Denver - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elitch_Gardens_Amusement_Park - More photos of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LoDo? - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byron_White_United_States_Courthouse (maybe?) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Customhouse_%28Denver%2C_Colorado%29 (wider photo?) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Andrews_Episcopal_Church_%28Denver%2C_Colorado%29 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paramount_Theatre_%28Denver%2C_Colorado%29 (wider photo?) - http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Regional_Transportation_District (oddly enough, the only photos of RTD buses on Wikipedia appear to be the MallRide -- I'll try to fix this with a few photos of Boulder buses when I'm outdoors in the daystar next) (It's possible that some or all of these images are hiding in http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Denver,_Colorado somewhere) Looking at the WikiMiniAtlas (http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiMiniAtlas), it looks like most of the historical sites are near the Denver Botanical Gardens. So another way to plan this could be a day trip to the botanical gardens! cheers, Gaurav _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-US-CO mailing list Wikimedia-US-CO@lists.wikimedia.org https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-us-co
