So, if we can all bring along a camera.

one camera between three people!)
It depends where we want to go. If we'd like to go by car, I'd have
probably 3 seats available, long as someone doesn't mind the middle in the
back. If by train to downtown, however many would like to go. We can meet up
at my car from there if need be, at Mineral.
I'm not sure where Mineral is, but thanks for the offer!
I would like to stop downtown to get some photos of Biker Jim's, as I'm
currently working on that article. We can do that in either case, and I can
bring my camera to work if it's really opposed, but I'd really rather prefer
it to be on the same day. And they really do have some good food. :) I'd
prefer not to go downtown by car, since I can get there for free on the
train, and would rather do that than pay for parking. But I'd be happy to
drive to some farther out areas after that's done.
So, anyone opposed to meeting downtown for lunch/photos prior to lunch,
and hitting the Botanic Gardens or other locations from there?
I like this plan, and have set up the first part of the paperwork:
I've proposed September 28 as the day of photography, since I'm leaving
Boulder for a week from Sunday, September 29. Once we know how many people
are interested, and have a time and a date finalised (hopefully by this
weekend), we'll have all of next week to run geonotices

Hey there, good folks. I'm totally up for Wikipedia Loves Monuments or
Takes America, or whatever it might be this month. However, I should warn
you, I'm totally, like, dirt poor. And so I couldn't provide transportation
or anything like that. Ideally, I hope Gaurav might convince his roommate to
go so I could jump into their car or something. I do have an iPhone though,
and the Wikimedia app. So I'm set in that department.
Sorry, Spencer -- I think my friend (not roommate!) might be out of town
then. Would a bus trip to Denver be too expensive for you?
Any of the places Todd Allen suggested sound great. I don't have a
particular preference, but the Children's Museum might be interesting. The
Botanical Gardens would be nice too. I don't think I've been there yet. But
really anywhere on that list sounds great.
There's space on the event page to start throwing up ideas. Being on 16th
Street means that we can go anywhere from Union Station to the Capitol for
free. There must be something interesting within walking distance of that,
So if any of y'all are planning to go, please let me know. Also, I was
very interested in helping out with Wikipedia Loves Libraries next month.
Was there anyone else here who wanted to get together to make something
happen in that regard? I think I may be able to ask someone at BPL to get a
room reserved. I don't really have a solid game plan laid out, but I
definitely wanted to do something like talk about basic Wikipedia editing,
and then more advanced stuff like Templates, transclusion vs. substition,
customizing your theme, custom CSS and stuff like that. Nothing too heavy,
though, as I suspect there will mainly be people new to the project. But
just to give people a sense of how to go about contributing a variety of
Let me know how this goes! I'm trying to think of something we could do
at either the CU Libraries or the CU Museum, but it's going to take a lot
more organising than I'll have time for this semester.
