Dear QGIS UG Member,

We are glad to announce that we already had a huge response to our first  
mailshot and an almost equal amount of members have registered for the  
Gauteng and Cape Town meetings. And it is not too late to register for  
either of the meetings on the 10th in Gauteng and the 17th in Mowbray/Cape  
Town. Just have a look at the programme, which makes you want to be there:

If this does not excite you, what will?

The Cape Town meeting is still 3 weeks away so there is plenty of time to  
prepare a little presentation on anything you have done on QGIS, FOSSGIS or  
any GIS data project. Please let us know!

Regards, and see you all there!
Gerhard and Immo
