Hi all Marikina mappers,

So sorry, something important came up, I will not be able to make it on the
9am gathering at Bluewave mall.  I might just be able to catch up with some
of you while gathering POIs at around 11am but I would more surely be there
at SM Marikina during the data editing and tutorials.

As of this time I am preparing a list of "Points Of Attractions" of Marikina
so maybe some of the volunteers may want to seek and map them.  Also, maybe
some can add other points on the list which are worth mapping.  I will try
to email the list late tonight.
