I'm here at the park. In the big parking lot to at the Kroger and baseball fields. Lots of shady space but I don't know where anyone else is. TLSuda (talk) 15:06, 11 July 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm here in a red suv at the corner of the almost empty park parking lot. — Neonorange (talk) 15:21, 11 July 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Leaving now. — Neonorange (talk) 15:43, 11 July 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Neonorange: I didn't see your messages until after I got home. I left about 11:35ish when I saw on the FB page that at least one person got the date confused with tomorrow. I was in a grey F250 the whole time. I ate my lunch watching some random guys set up and climb a tree.

Like I mentioned in the regrets section, I mixed up the date. I went ahead and made another time lapse animation to celebrate though. Time lapse of Earth article Sorry again for the mixup. We can try again next year. Wakebrdkid (talk) 14:00, 13 July 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Attendees + Food[edit]

Bring-your-own-food, but we can make a sandwich run if anyone forgets since parking is easy at Blackburn Park and there are a couple of food options across the street.

Add your name as " # ~~~ " if you have an username or else add " # Name"

Even on the 11th, I'll still be out of town and so won't be able to make that either. Everymorning talk 12:01, 16 June 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I would be able to make the 13th or later, since I am getting back to Atlanta on the 12th. Everymorning talk 00:11, 18 June 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'll be in Seattle the two Saturdays after the 11th. I suppose if more people can make it on another day it should be moved again. Although I'm all for scheduling more events instead of repeatedly moving one event. If not, I'll definitely post a good summary of what we talk about on the 11th.

  • I had it stuck in my mind that the picnic was still happening on a Sunday even though I was the one that rescheduled it. It would take me close to 3 hours to get there now. I'll make a timelapse video of an article this week as my contribution to the celebrations. Really sorry about the mixup. Wakebrdkid (talk) 15:15, 11 July 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
