Planning maps

Before the event


  • Facebook. A Facebook event page was created at the OSMPH fan page. This will serve as the main RSVP page (since this Wiki is too geeky for newbies).
Please add links so that we can follow up questions or replies on those forums.
  • Posters. A poster was prepared by seav and printed and posted on several barangay public bulletin boards by maning.

Sponsorships and marketing

  • There is a potential sponsor (Garmin retailer) but nothing concrete yet. No response until today Maning 11:51, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
  • UPDATE: NAVCO (a local GARMIN Nuvi retailer) will offer limited 30% discount to mappers who will attend the event.

During the event

  • Schedule/programme
    • Rough outline with times and venue already on the main wiki page.

Morning briefing @ Blue Wave

  • Venue. Jollibee
