I suggest we can make a small announcement after the PCD events to get everyone attending the Cartotalk mingler to stay behind. From there we will see how many people we have and we can head out together somewhere in the area.

Some of us are involved with the Map-Off later on that day and will need to be back in time for this.

Looks like a Wednesday meet-up is the winner.  I guess we should work out a few details as the date is approaching.

Maybe it can be a dinner event?  I don't know much about everything else going on that day or Salt Lake City, so anyone want to volunteer to put this event together?

Given the 2 hours between PCD and the Map-Off, it might be
a good idea to pick a resturant and make reservations. I
don't know how many people here plan to go, but groups
more than 4 or 5 certainly take longer to seat and serve.

Brandon Plewe, who is in charge of of NACIS local arrangements,
had these suggestions:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Other than the hotel restaurant (which looks good but pricey) I
believe the restaurants in the Gateway (a mall 2 blocks west) are the
closest to the hotel, and includes more nice sit-down restaurants than
most malls: Italian, Seafood, Brazilian, Mexican, Thai,
Polynesian/Caribbean, Sports Grill, Tex-Mex, Steak, etc.

The best brewpub in town, Redrock Brewing, is two blocks south.

I would be happy to call and make reservations somewhere but the crucial question remains the number of people who will attend.

I'll be there.

I predict there will be one vote for each of the options... ;) It's all good for me by the way.

I have a feeling you're right so Martin will have to pick ( :) he volunteered after all).

The more important item is the count.

As much as I had wanted to squeeze this in, it looks like I'm just not going to be able to swing it this year. It would have worked so well too since we are starting a new street map series of Salt Lake City and the cites along the Wasash Front. Too many other commitments this year. I will try to gt NACIS in on the Calendar early for next year.

Nick et al.

It looks like I'll be heading east for this one, quite happy 'bout that. I think Hans might have me beat by about 2000 miles for distance traveled, but regardless look forward to meeting you all. Way to go Hans...

Thai sounds great. I should be getting into SLC around 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

Till then, cheers.

OK, due to the wonderfully high turnout for this event, we have determined that there is not enough time on Wednesday for a large group dinner between the end of the PCD and the opening session.

Therefore we have decided to have the CartoTalk dinner and drinks on Thursday at the Red Rock Brewery. We will gather at 6:30 with dinner at 7:00.


This will allow for a more relaxed event and an open ended evening.

Thanks.

Nick,

Sounds good to me. The 2-hour time window we would have had on Wednesday always looked a bit too short/restrictive to me.

I know we had a poll up and I got a count of people, but the poll feature is anonymous so I don't know WHO is coming.

So, if you would like to join us for the CartoTalk dinner on Thursday, 7:00pm at the Red Rock Brewery, please send me a PM through CartoTalk so I know who will be attending.

Thanks,

Well, the dinner was last night and we had a good turn-out of 12 people (although one of them was a wanna-be Cartotalk member, so we'll have to force him to sign up...). I think it was nice meeting the others and finally being able to put some faces to names and I hope we'll get more opportunities like this.

Hello,

Did Martin bring the Jaegermeister or did he drink them all by himself... :D
Hope you had a good time!

Regards,

Andreas
