    It was great. I stayed more than an hour longer than I was planning. Thanks Sue and Martin and others for making this happen.

    Organized very well, Speaker fantastic and food best I've had in a long time. If there had been less snow we might have been in Vancouver!

    Hi Martin, I can't make it to the meeting tomorrow, so now you have one free spot.

    I've just come off a call with the WikiMedia Foundation. As their venue is now full you can no longer sign up. If you are not interested in the goals of Founding a Wikipedia Chapter please do unsubscribe yourself to make room for others!

    Also, note that the list of names of those successful in signing up soon enough has been copied into the Wikipedia event page.
