This is the Event Page for Boston's PLOTS Tidmarsh Meet Up

Nov 17th 2012 Mapping Meetup

There have been a few requests for weekend mapping workshops on the listserv, and so in an effort to create a more active arena for skill sharing and collaboration in the Boston and greater-Boston area, Jeff and I thought it would be fun to organize a meet up -- similar to the recent LEAFEST in Vermont but more informal and for only half of a day.

Our proposal for the first (of hopefully many more) Boston PLOTS meet up is Saturday, November 17, 2012 at Tidmarsh Farms in Manomet, MA. We'll have more logistical information soon, but let us know if you're available on November 17 to meet up at Tidmarsh Farms for a skill share/mapping session and potential potluck. Feel free to add your name below.

Interested in participating:

Date: Saturday, November 17, 2012 Location: Tidmarsh Farm, - Google Maps Time: 12PM until there's no more wind, we run out of helium or we get hungry

To dos:

  • Find nearby coffee shops for sheltering afterwards
  • how will potluck work (indoor area? Barn?)
  • Decide on equipment needed for skillshare
  • Choose specific location on farm (update coming very soon from Glorianna Davenport, farm owner -- but basically 100-150 acres of the southern end of the farm)
  • WiFi Hotspot for MapKnitter Demo (Jeff has a T-mobile 4g hotspot as long as there's reception)
