Well, that went out a bit before it was fully baked.  I'll try again.

I've created the 10 birthday organizing page on the wiki,

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OpenStreetMap_10th_Anniversary_Birthday_party

and presumed that the Saturday 09 August date suggested by another
wiki editor is okay with everybody.  Now would be a great time for you
to check that the date doesn't collide inconveniently with a local
holiday or other event.

I've added a place holder for the Toronto event, we've hosted
OpenStreetMap birthday parties for several years now, so I'm sure that
local mappers will do the same again.  If your town does not have a
strong tradition of local OSM events, perhaps celebrating the 10th
birthday is the motivation you need to get started?  Meet monthly, to
plan and organize, and to meet and share with other mappers.  By
meeting for the five months leading up to the birthday, you'll build
the audience for your awesome birthday party.

Happy Mapping
