Gumtree Promotion

Hi Oliver. on London/Summer 2008 Mapping Party Marathon/2008-07-23 you were suggesting listing the event on Gumtree. Sounds good to me. I'm not really familiar with that website myself, but it looks like there's a place random listings of such events. The more promotion the better.

Actually we've tended not to be very good a doing even some basic promotion of these events, because they're coming around every Wednesday, so we never quite get around to it! I think there's some potential if we were to contact local councils and other local community organisations too, although I think they often like to list things in their printed events publications several months in advance.

New Cross is a long way away for me, but hopefully I'll make it down there next Wednesday

It's easy to advertise the event by posting a community ad. One problem is I'm not sure if this is suitable for complete beginners. The meet-up seems to be afterwards, whereas newbies would need a time and place to meet up and be briefed.
