Hi all,

We're holding a Dublin mapping-party-workshop-intro this Saturday 
afternoon (1st September) at the Hamlet pub, Balbriggan, Co. Dublin.


All are welcome!

Also, a cable to connect your GPS to your laptop would be useful. A digital camera might also be useful, if we go walking to get some sample data.
