Sydney will be hosting the Wheelchair Rugby Tri-Nations competition on Wed 18 - Fri 20 September 2013 (i.e. immediately prior to the edit-a-thon). Free tickets to the games will be available to edit-a-thon participants to specially encourage you to edit articles about the wheelchair rugby (aka Murderball). But you are still most welcome if there are other disability sport topics that you prefer to work on.
Free Tickets to the Wheelchair Rugby Tri-Nations
To get your free tickets, sign up below for the edit-a-thon, check this match schedule and email Tony Naar at the Australian Paralympic Committee to request your tickets. Tony promises us that this is an fast-paced exciting action-packed sport and these are the three of the best national teams in the world!
The venue for the physical meeting is located within the State Reference Library (Lower Ground 1), which can be accessed by a lift. The room has tables, power, and wifi.
Bags and food/drinks are not allowed into the room. Lockers will be provided for attendees to store their bags ($1 for four hours).

- Wheel Blacks needs a lot of loving.
- Their coach was 'Peter Martin'; is Peter Martin (athlete) the same person? John Vandenberg (chat) 02:41, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
- As I mentioned in a recent short essay in my Metapedia userspace, I'm keen to see the Wheel Blacks page get some attention. From what I've seen, there aren't that many pics of the team on Commons, and that is something I intend to address.
- Create articles about people mentioned on /History of athletes and staff
- mention tri-nation comp at Australia national wheelchair rugby team?
- Create article Ben Fawcett using photo File:Ben Fawcett.jpg

- As part of this GLAM event, I decided to place a telephone call to the current president of the NZ Wheelchair Rugby Association, Tim Johnson. Introducing myself as a Wikipedian and a fan of the Wheel Blacks, I inquired as to how we might expand the current stub page. I was invited to a team training camp in the start of October, where I will be given permission to take photographs of the team behind-the-scenes. Expect to see something on Wikimedia Commons soon afterwards! Tim also mentioned that he can draft some blurb for the page and send it to me for uploading to the encyclopedia. ⌕ 04:16, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
