Subject: [OTT_OSGEO] Meeting Thursday October 5
For our next venue for our meeting I thought we could try out
the Clocktower Brew Pub.
This venue will allow us to have our own space in their basement
from 6-7pm. Which will be perfect to ensure we keep the organized
component to a minimum. Their basement is set up for food and drink and
server will be through.
If you can drop me a line letting me know if you are planning to
attend that would be great. Our booking is tentative until I get back to
them with numbers. I just need a rough estimate. I would like to firm up
plans soon, but I don't want to rush people.
This venue has wireless internet, which will be great for our
presentation by Mike Adair on Map Builder.
