Regular OpenStreetMap meetup in Chiang Mai, anyone interested?

All,

I'd love to see you guys more often and I think it could help building the community too, as we can invite new comers as well.

My idea is that we meet once a month for an hour or two somewhere cozy in Chiang Mai, there is no requirement for showing up, nor will there be a requirement to stay there for two hours if you feel like leaving after 15 minutes.

For me weekdays from 19:00 until the last person leaves works best, but I can do weekends too if that works better.

What do you think?, Is it worth trying?

Best Regards,
Johnny

Great idea Johnny. I might not be able to join you until next September though because I'm leaving Thailand for the summer on April 5th. If you get it formalized before then maybe I can fit it into my schedule.

Best,
Dave

How about March 31st (Friday) or April 3rd (Monday), they seems to be the best so far. That includes Dave, Russ, Stephan and me.

Stephan arrives March 30.

I'll also try and see if Tom is interested.

Can not do April 2 - 5th.   
Friday 31st, not ideal, but will make it if this suits everyone else.
Thursday 6th is perfect for me, or Mon - Thurs the following week are all free at the moment, but of course, Dave not available then, so looks like Friday 31st then  ??    smile

Re: Regular OpenStreetMap meetup in Chiang Mai, anyone interested?

March 31st it is then.

Any suggestions for a location?

I like Baanpong Lodge (http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1572804654), but it is quite a bit out of town. I am open to other suggestions as well.

31st is fine. I'm happy to meet you all again in person.

Jo suggested Inter Minigolf/Golden Elephant.
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/141471719

Sounds easier reachable for most as it is not that far outside.

Golden Elephant is fine with me, I'll let's allow another 24 hours of suggestions, and if nothing  better comes up, I'll announce it more publicly.

@Johnny: Hope you did a reservation for enough persons smile

Just for completeness I added the event to the OSM event calendar in the wiki.

I haven't actually made a reservation, they usually have plenty of space there. Maybe I should drop by one of the next days and have a quick talk with them.

Re: Regular OpenStreetMap meetup in Chiang Mai, anyone interested?

How about adding a picture to the wiki replacing the oldest one? I enjoy seeing myself that young, but that picture is quite dated by now.

I would like to add one of these where we stand around the big screen while Tom explains the school name mapping.
Faces not that visible, it's an action shot.
