I think last night went well - there were at least 10 participants at  
the workshop that I can picture in my head now (forgot to count), a  
few of which had to leave before the social part of the event.  My  
tutorial proved to be a bit long for everyone to go through all of  
it, but I was aiming to err on that side rather than too short.  It  
was "hot off the presses" and needs some continued work, but a link  
to the "0.8 version" I handed out last night is on the wiki now if  
anyone wants it.  I had examples of and pointers to other tutorials  
on hand, as well as several relevant books, including the "new GRASS  

The discussion at Mike's Place afterwards was fun, and I'm proud to  
report that in the trivia contest that was run soon after we got  
there, "team QGIS" won first prize, and our other OSGEO team (I  
forget the name, but it could be called "team PCI" based on its  
membership) took second.  So it's proof - put together geographers  
and IT/Comp Sci types and we'll rule the world.  Or at least win a  
free pitcher and some ball caps!  Sylvie and Regie, I have your prize  
caps. :)

At least 4 of the people there were "first time attendees", and one  
person was asking about the next meeting.  So before I forget about  
that, perhaps we should get the ball rolling.  Do we have any  
presentations waiting in the wings?  Is Jan 3 to soon after the  
holidays?  I'm free Jan 3 and Jan 10 and have no real opinion on  
either date.
