The wiki has a Mapping Party Howto with some good tips. It could use
some updating with the tips people have given, but it's a very good

Also, find someone you can rely on to help. Even just for simple stuff
like food/drinks, letting people in and out of the building, keeping
an eye on things. Mapping parties have a large non-technical
component. If you have a few people who know how it all works that
saves you doing all the work.

Have a nice day,
