It looks like it did. I've joined the facebook group. I couldn't make it
but hopefully we can send a few more folks along next time, but it looks
like they had a great turnout.

For the moment these events will be University led and based but we encourage non-university mappers to come along, especially if they have some experience. We are still unsure about how often we will host mapathons, but we are looking at this being a regular event. I have heard of some people trying to organise some events in Glasgow as well, for which I am happy to help.

As a side note, I've been exploring hosting Missing Maps events in Glasgow, so it would be good to hear if there is any appetite for this. I should be at the meet-up at the CCA on the 17th if anyone wants to chat about it.
