Well IoW is obviously easier for me but a) I suspect I'm in a minority there and b) to be quite honest it "looks" pretty much complete from the POV of ROWs.

Rutland would also be somewhere new for me so would be potentially interested. However my preference would be not to have it in October (when the original party happened) due to work commitments, but instead some time between Apr-Sep inclusive, which has the advantage of more daylight.

Each time I'm struck by the fact that Rutland still needs a lot of ground survey work for OSM. Oakham for instance has a prodigious number of new houses, the PRoW network is pretty incomplete, and there are lots of other details missing in villages.

Next year will be 10 years since the big Rutland Mapping Party<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Rutland_England/2006_Rutland_Mapping_Party>. Might it be fun to reprise it and make Rutland best mapped countryside in UK?

Obviously another alternative would be reprise the Isle of Wight Workshop<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Isle_of_Wight_workshop_2006>.
