Well, it's not many talks you turn up to only to find fake corpses littered about! 

I agree that SJA couldn't organise the proverbial, but other than that it was a good evening. Thanks to Ben for a very interesting talk. 

Kind regards

Hi Everyone 

Great talk last night from Ben Proctor <https://www.facebook.com/benproctor> on 
OpenStreetMap - thanks Ben. Anyone who missed the talk can catch up with 
the tweets. 

Thanks also to everyone who turned up, 15 came along so it proves that the 
organised events in a suitable surroundings work out well. May have had 
even more if we had more time to promote it. St John's Ambulance were easy 
to deal with but lots of little niggles, in booking the event and during 
it. The alarm went off when we put in the code they supplied, as .... they 
supplied the wrong code ! 

Likewise, no-one could get wifi there, as it was the wrong code again. 

Mainly these issues seemed to be from a disjunct between the the local 
Hereford folk/site and the Birmingham centralised booking office, where 
Birmingham seemed to have incorrect info all the way along. 

In fact we were lucky to use the main hall, we had only paid a much smaller 
amount to book the smaller meeting room, which when we entered had lots of 
fake dead bodies and stretchers, ie it was a more a store room for St 
Johns, and never setup as a 'meeting room' 

But all in all once the alarm was sorted, Ben put on a great presentation, 
and lots turned up to attend! 

We hope to put on more events like this every so often.
