Volunteers from Serbia and Wikimedia Hungary go WikiCamping!

The first weekend of August, sixteen Wikipedians gathered from all around Hungary and neighboring Serbia to take part in the first multi-day Wikipedia camp. Based in Nagykanizsa, a small town in the southwestern part of the country, the editors shared their experiences through Wikipedia quizzes, lectures and movie screenings and had a genuinely good summer time barbecuing, hiking and sightseeing in the nearby nature reserves and towns.

WikiCamp 2010.

The four-day WikiCamp was organized by Wikimedia Hungary, the local chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation, with the invaluable help of the local Wikipedians.
We hope that the camp will become an annual event along with our ongoing projects, a conference on the tenth anniversary of Wikipedia in 2011 and various contests to improve the quality and depth of the Hungarian Wikipedia.

Nagykanizsa is in the South-West of the country.

and it’s still Dami’s POV that it’s a small town… in Hungary a town with a population of 50,000 counts as medium-sized IMO 🙂

I would still consider it small – it’s just a fact of life that you cannot populate metropolises with 10 million people in all of Hungary. 🙂
(50 000 being middle sized, would mean that other middle-sized towns like Debrecen would count as big towns, leaving Budapest no place on the scale. 🙂
