Meetup group[edit]

I'm planning a meetup to coincide with the Great American Wiknic, and have created Wikipedia:Meetup/Detroit to organize it. If you've ever been interested in becoming more involved in the Detroit and Wikipedia community this would be a great time to start. The current plan involves having the Wiknic at Wayne State University's Campus, as a part of the Detroit Windsor International Film Festival Tech Fair. Keep an eye on the meetup page for more information as it becomes available.

Who is the I'm above? :-) Didn't see this notice till after I created Wikipedia:Meetup/Detroit, MI/Wiknic/2013 - would like to work cross wiki and do this together. Best, MarkDilley
That'd be me. We've tried to put something together in the past to mesh with Tech Fair with mixed results but both it and the Detroit Windsor International Film Festival have been postponed indefinitely. So there've been no plans for the future. PeRshGo (talk) 08:24, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
