- For comments and suggestions regarding this meetup, post it on the discussion page.
The first Wikipedian meetup in Ohio is currently being planned. The meetup will take place in Columbus on July 18, 2009. Depending on how many Wikipedians can make it, the meetup could be located at one of a number of possible venues. Please visit the talk page to discuss details.
To discuss undetermined factors, please see the talk page.
- Columbus: Columbus, Ohio has been decided on for the city, since it is the state capital, centrally located, and the location where the most could make it.
- Undetermined: Ideally, we will meet outdoors, at a yet to be determined Columbus Metro Park or perhaps in the The Oval. Then, depending on the amount of people (and interest gauged before the date), we can head to another venue. Possibilities include the museum, the Wexner Center, the zoo, and COSI, or a restaurant, such as Donatos Pizza, Eddie George's Grille, or one of the many options in South Campus Gateway or Easton Town Center.
- Undetermined: Depending on the venue, the expected tone, and what works best for everyone, the meetup could take place at any time of the day.

- IanManka Like everyone else, it depends on what I'm doing and other factors. I don't know what I'm doing two months from now yet...
- I'm local to Columbus. Let's see if I pay enough attention to not forget. Also, I can do directions and a map once the location is pinned down — again, assuming I keep paying attention and don't forget. (There's a chance my boyfriend might come along, too.)

- SuperHamster is only 14 years old, and doesn't think his parents will want to drive him all the way to Columbus to see a bunch of older people. No offense, of course. =) Maybe when I'm older...
- hmwithτ 21:27, 20 May 2009 (UTC) Even though I created this page and planned it, I didn't realize that the date is during a vacation. I'll unfortunately be visiting Ocean Isle during the meetup. I cannot wait for the second one though.

- Trying to get up to Ohio is complicating things too much for me, so I have to bow out. I will, however, be at Wikipedia:Meetup/Nashville (since that's where I'm at, far less travel involved). EVula // talk // ☯ // 18:41, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
