OSM Birthday Celebration

OpenStreetMap is 8 years old! Let's get together at Mercer Slough Nature Park on the eastside (there's lots of places to meet within the park, if you have  a specific suggestion, please say so!)

We can map the parks features, enjoy a picnic potluck (any interest?) and talk about OSM and the upcoming US State of the Map conference coming up in Portland (road trip!).

I plan to bring OSM cupcakes, GPS units and OSM Swag thanks to the OSM -US chapter.

 

1pm is great for me, unless it's going to be 95 and we ought to avoid the hottest part of the day. In that case, shall we move the time earlier? 10am?

 

 

I just read that OSM is celebrating it's 8th birthday. Seems like a good reason to get together. Check out the wiki page, s://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OpenStreetMap_8th_Anniversary_Birthday_party

    Fun tailgate picnic, then went for a short easy walk on the trails to see how it's done. A great way to spend a sunny afternoon, and a very friendly group, especially to a newbie like me. Thanks and Happy bday OSM!

      OK! Sounds good :) I'm going to bring watermelon in lieu of cupcakes, unless anyone is really just coming for the cake ;-P it's too hot for icing! See you tomorrow!

    Clifford, I'll brainstorm a place to meet. I'm thinking a park, if it's nice out!
