Full Meetup Calendar

The 5th Annual Los Angeles Great American Wiknic will be held on Saturday, 25 July 2015 in Pan-Pacific Park.

What, Where, When, and How?[edit]

What: Picnic!
Where: Pan-Pacific Park [ info ] [ Custom Google map ]
When: Saturday, July 11 25, 2015; ~9:30 AM – 4 PM
How: By hook or by crook

Details[edit]

Following last year's plan, early arrivals should plan to secure tables and grills at the north end of the park, closer to Beverly Boulevard. The park is usually busy on weekends. With the proper signage and perhaps some gear from the Wikimedia shop, we ought to be able to find one another. Please be clear when marking "likely" or "possible" because those bringing food will need to know what kind of headcount for which to prepare. If you look at the Google map (linked above), the ideal locations are marked BBQ locations A–D (we were at D the last two years). howcheng {chat} 18:22, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Regrets[edit]

  • Unfortunately, this date falls on the Saturday of San Diego Comic Convention. Hope everyone who attends has a great time.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 19:44, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Damn. Can't make this date - I'll be in Boston visiting family. I'll miss you guys! Hope it's a blast.JSFarman (talk) 13:35, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Aw, you guys moved the date. I'll also be visiting family that weekend. Someguy1221 (talk) 05:07, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
  • I will be in LA on the 25th, but unfortunately I'm not arriving until 9:00 pm. It would've been great to join you guys though -- I would've loved to attend my third Wiknic in another U.S. city! :( --Sky Harbor (talk) 06:26, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
  • I would so love to be there in person but we are swirling in a number of volunteer projects that make it hard to take the trip up. Sending much love in the meantime. If anyone wants to get in our psychology article-related work, we'd love to connect with some other wikiPedians! Especially focused on our work with Philip_Zimbardo right now. Building a volunteer program called Zimbardo's Everyday Heroes that includes wiki editing. More details at www.qol-x.org.

  • Reality interceded; next time! (Maybe!) --Nat Gertler (talk) 02:23, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
