I am already signed up for the Ice Breaker, so my personal preference 
would be to avoid planning a conflicting activity, but that's only a 
selfish preference and I will make the meeting if everybody else goes.

With respect to payment, if the board approves the expense then I can 
handle the technicalities (but that would require a board decision 
first, and there should be a set limit on the expense).

Will the OGC board members still be around on Thursday the 19th? The 
plenary only starts at 10am (see 
http://2013.foss4g.org/conf/programme/daily/1/), so perhaps we could 
meet for breakfast, or even in a corner of the conference center's 
plenary room or registration area?

Another option could be to hold an OGC/OSGeo BOF where all board members 
from both parties are encouraged to participate (assuming OGC board 
members are still around), and then that would have the added benefit of 
being more inclusive and community members could also participate, not 
just the boards. Actually, I see that there is already an "OGC/OSGeo 
meetup" planned for the 20th:
