>>> There is a Facebook group, where we will be advertising future events (Missing Maps Edinburgh https://www.facebook.com/groups/587653318031461/). 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.

>>> Sadly I won't be able to make this event, but I'm looking forward to ones in the future. 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.
