  • Not sure of my schedule yet, but sounds fun! HistoricMN44 (talk) 21:20, 6 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Probably will come, not too sure yet— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 16:56, 17 June 2013‎ (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I'd like to attend though as I live in Charlottesville and it's a moderately long and expensive drive or train ride up I'd say the odds are probably less than even given my level of commitment as I write this. I do hope to make a DC meeting eventually though even if not this week's.--Riyuky (talk) 12:57, 19 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Most likely will go, just not sure what I will bring, so until then I'll stay a maybe.mijotoba (talk) 05:06, 20 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I'd like to attend and I might yet if the Richmond one doesn't get off the ground. On a side note, if anyone is interested in meeting up, give me a ring. I still don't know if I'd be able to do one, but I wouldn't mind at least setting up plans to do one on a later date, perhaps next year. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 06:29, 20 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I should be free! This is so cool I can't wait! --enguyen820
  • The rescheduled date is better for me than the original, so it's possible. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 15:13, 26 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
