[OSGeo-UK] Thanks for #osgis

I'd like to add a big well done also.

I sent over some notes to Jo Cook from the 'AGM' that was held which I 
guess she'll post to the list when a bit more coherent than my ramblings.

My personal feeling is that the OSGeo:UK chapter will gain proper 
momentun this year - if you want to be involved and help shape and 
influence not only the chapter, but the industry in the UK as a whole, 
now is the time!

Come on and help - you know you want to!
