Full Meetup Calendar

This page is to help coordinate meetups of Wikipedians from Utah and nearby areas (southwestern Wyoming, southern Idaho, parts of Nevada, and parts of Colorado, too). Given that most people in Utah live on the Wasatch Front, it's likely that the first meetup or two will be somewhere near the Salt Lake Valley. Please make suggestions for good places to meet below, and add your name to the list of people who are interested in coming. Once we get a decent number, we'll figure out when and where, based on the suggestions.

Interested Wikipedians[edit]

Let's get together for a Wiknic! They are generally held sometime in July, so please post a comment below indicating which date would work best for you. Saturdays will likely work best for most people. Hope to see you all there. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 22:09, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Well, it's been over a week and no one has shown any interest. So, we'll shelve this idea for now. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 22:05, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
@Nihonjoe: Sorry, I just saw this. For some reason it didn't ping me? I'm free on the 23rd and in the evening on the 16th; is anyone else interested? Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 17:59, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
@Rachel Helps (BYU): Weird. I wonder why it didn't work. It's supposed to be able to work for up to 50, IIRC. I've placed a message on all the talk pages above inviting people to come and participate. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 00:08, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
The 23rd works for me. --AdmrBoltz 12:49, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
That would make for three of us; is that enough people to meet in-person? @Admrboltz:, you're up in Salt Lake City and I'm down in Provo, do you think somewhere around Point of the Mountain would be a good compromise? It looks like a park in Lehi called Willow Park might be a fun place, but I haven't been there personally. In Provo, I like Pioneer park near center street. Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 15:49, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
I've actually calculated the center of all the cities and addresses provided and it all centers on Salt Lake City. FallingGravity (talk) 16:24, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
I'm fine with somewhere in Lehi, or in Salt Lake, just to keep things fairly easy for everyone. Around 3-4pm on the 23rd works best for me. @FallingGravity, Rachel Helps (BYU), and Admrboltz: since you've replied. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:14, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
@FallingGravity, Rachel Helps (BYU), and Admrboltz: I was wrong. The 23rd won't work for me. Traditionally, the Wiknic can be anytime in July or August, so would a date in August work for you guys? Any Saturday but the first one works for me. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 19:55, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
I'm free the 6th and the 20th, but don't feel obligated to plan around my schedule.... Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 15:44, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
Pick a date, I should be able to make it work. --AdmrBoltz 19:36, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
Just saw this. I can do any Saturday in July or August, besides August 13th, as I'll have family in town. I'm in Utah County. Useight's Public Sock (talk) 16:56, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
@FallingGravity, Rachel Helps (BYU), Admrboltz, and Useight's Public Sock: Seeing as it's too freaking hot to be outside during the day lately, how about we find a nice indoor place on August 20th? There are three of us in Utah County, how about we meet in Draper (or Riverton, South Jordan, etc.) at a library or a restaurant? For those in Utah County, we can arrange rides if people want to carpool (save the air and gas and all). ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 18:05, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
@FallingGravity, Nihonjoe, Admrboltz, and Useight's Public Sock: I completely agree with going indoors. Penny Ann's Cafe looks pretty good/cheap. I also love exploring libraries, but I'm not sure if the South Jordan library allows food in their conference rooms (my guess would be no). I'll probably bring my husband and toddler along too. Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 17:23, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
@FallingGravity, Rachel Helps (BYU), Admrboltz, and Useight's Public Sock: That sounds really good. Let's plan on August 20th meeting there. What time would be best for everyone? 10am? 11am? Noon? 1pm? Any of those times would work for me. It appears it's only open from 7am to 2:30pm. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 21:10, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
I can probably make any time work. Useight's Public Sock (talk) 01:48, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @FallingGravity, Rachel Helps (BYU), Admrboltz, and Useight's Public Sock: Okay, let's go for August 20 at 10am at Penny Ann's Cafe. Hope to see everyone there. Feel free to bring significant others of various ages and sizes if desired. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 23:45, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

Sounds good, I'll plan on it. Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 14:43, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
@FallingGravity, Rachel Helps (BYU), Admrboltz, and Useight's Public Sock: Just a friendly reminder of the meetup this coming Saturday at Penny Ann's Cafe at 10am. Hope to see you all there, and you're welcome to bring significant others of various ages and sizes if desired. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 16:41, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
@FallingGravity, Nihonjoe, Admrboltz, and Useight's Public Sock: How will we recognize each other? I'll be wearing [this http://www.shirtsoflegend.com/view/7574892/aperture_science_innovations_portal_t_shirt] Aperture Science t-shirt. --Rachel Helps (currently on my alt account) Rwelean (talk) 03:30, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
I'm wearing a blue polo with the Wikipedia logo on it. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 15:56, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
Sorry I can't make it guys, my UTA bus got re-routed. Have fun! FallingGravity 15:59, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
Got delayed. I'll be there in about 30 minutes. Useight's Public Sock (talk) 16:17, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
