Just a couple of observations from the other side of the Atlantic:
- please make it easy to contact your group without having to go through a sign up procedure with yet another service. Not everybody is interested in joining permamently and making a meetup account mandatory just means you wont get casual visitors that might be interesting.
- while by far not the oldest OSM local group the Zurich group just had its 49th meeting on Monday and up to now we're not outstripped the capabilities of the wiki, mailing list and now and then a doodle for special events.


Ps: background: l was in San Diego for 2 weeks in September and naturally would have liked to meet up with a couple of local mappers and /or the Southern California group, but see above.
