Here's what the USK website says about this event:
Announcing the 1st Annual West Coast Urban Sketchers Sketchcrawl, July 12 - 14, in the San Francisco Bay Area.
This event will offer any and all urban sketchers anywhere throughout the world, who for whatever reasons, were not able to attend the Barcelona Symposium, a chance to meet new people, and to enjoy group sketching and socializing in the fabulous San Francisco Bay Area, located on the West Coast of the United States.
No fees, no workshops, the event is designed for meeting with new people and friends, and sketching all day on Saturday, the 40th World Wide Sketchcrawl, in the city where Enrico Casarosa gave birth to the "World Wide Sketchcrawl," San Francisco.
