Howdy y'all!

Wanted to invite you and your best mapping buddies to a Mapping Party  
in Houston, TX:

Salento Coffee Inc
2407 Rice Blvd
Houston, Texas

Mapping parties are events where anyone can come and participate in  
the OpenStreetMap project.

OpenStretMap is a free, open source map that can be contributed,  
edited and used by anyone anywhere!! Improve the hiking trails, locate  
the bike paths or create the best Coffee Shop or Pub crawl map ever!!

Mapping parties are social events where experienced and new mappers  
can meet to share and learn more about the project. The events are  
generally held in a public place, and allow time for discussion,  
mapping and editing. The event is open to all.

They are relaxed events and you're supposed to have fun. Often we grab  
a beer or a glass of wine after the event, and this is no exception!

The general run of the day looks like this:
12pm Introduction to mapping and send experienced mappers out on their  

12:30 loan out GPS and a short intro on how to use them
12-4 map map map ;)
