Ed, I'm impressed with the comprehensiveness of this workshop.
I have been to one of yours before so I know that it is going to be a very hands on experience for all levels of mapper and most importantly whether they plan to use Ocad or Open Orienteering Mapper. Folks, the skills are transferable.
A great weekend for those who can make it. Think of it: A day of map making instruction, trying out Ocad 2019, a return to Ward Pound Ridge and then Governor's Island in New York City.

Ed, Sorry if I missed it but is there a hard deadline for people to get their registrations for the mapping clinic to you.
