Hi Andrew,

Re Finding interested people for an Open Street Map event:

I suggest reaching out to the GeoRabble folks and ask them when they 
have their next speaking night.
You could give a 5 minute pitch to attract people interested in setting 
up a mapping event.

I'm also CCing the Austrailan QGIS users group where you will likely 
find a few interested GIS folks.

Cheers, Cameron
