Neal put up a page, so anyone who's interested in doing this, please add a blurb so we can argue about it.

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedians_of_Colorado_User_Group/wmcon-2017/candidates

As Neal said, involvement, goals, and plans. A quick note or link or whatever reminding everyone who you are, would probably be useful, as well as something about why you're interested in particular or what you would like to do with it. Maybe stuff you've organised in the past, or would like to try doing, that sort of thing.

Of the best-suited to represent Colorado Wikimedians, it may very well indeed be the most fierce of competitions between Neal and Gaurav, as Neal has obviously made significant contributions to Wikipedia's infrastructure while Gaurav has obviously made significant contributions to Wikipedia's content. I vote to send them both disguised as one person?

If you are curious as to why my response is all the way down here, it's because I encountered this very interesting SuperUser answer <http://superuser.com/a/229722/184651> recently.
