Agenda For May 2017
2 - Panel for Information and Questions
We have members who are always ready to help when needed.
And with information they have that should be shared with
the rest of us, we will give them this opportunity. For this
meeting we will have Conrad Lalicker, Jeff Marcus and Paul
Flynn sitting up in front at your disposal, so to speak.
Each of these members is very knowledgeable although no one
can have all the answers when it comes to software programs.
However, if you have a question regarding a particular software
you use, theres a good chance someone else attending
will be able to help you.
I hope youll come prepared to keep the panel members
May 16 - Russ
the name may not be familiar, chances are youve heard
of The Secret Guide to Computers. The book
as a new name now, The Secret Guide to Computers
& Tricky Living, which combines what used to
be two books. The Secret Guide was updated
on a regular basis as the operating systems changed and the
current version is the 33rd edition! Thats
quite a track record for a book dealing with technology.
Russ is in New Hampshire but through the magic of
Skype, he will be at our meeting. He has a lot to talk about
and, of course, is willing to answer questions. If there is
a specific topic or issue you would like to have him discuss,
be sure to let me know. He will also touch on the Tricky
Living part of the book, about which I know nothing.
Incidentally, he has sent me a free book for our reference.
Should be an extremely interesting meeting.
May 23 - Dining
Dining Fund Raiser at Sizzler
7131 Van Nuys Blvd.
½ block south of Sherman Way
join other members at the Van Nuys Sizzler for our monthly
fund raiser. Sizzler donates 15% of your check to the club.
Most get there between 5 & 6 p.m.
It's always enjoyable dining together
with friends. This is the easiest and tastiest
way for you to help in TUGNETs fund raising efforts.
Try to come as the number of guests is always an influence
as to whether we can return. Looking forward to seeing you.
Be sure to pickup a flyer at the meeting, You need to present
it when ordering.
Thanks to all who have supported our dining events through
the year, it has helped our treasury while you had a pleasant
time and filled your tummies. We will continue to keep you
informed of the schedule of restaurants in the new year.
Please note: Dining events will
be planned for the fourth Tuesday from January on. That will
accommodate the board of directors meeting changing to the
second Tuesday each month.
There is no easier way that I know of to help our treasury,
assuming that we have good participation. If you can invite
someone to come with you - or meet you there, wouldnt
that be grand? If we could garner a check for at least $100
each time we have a dining event, with two events wed
have one night of our meeting room rent covered. Now tell
me, whats better than that?
If you have a favorite restaurant youd
like to have included in these plans, let Jefferson Kent know
about it. His contact info is on page 3. He is happy to work
with any location which welcomes groups. By the way, it is
surprising how many restaurants are glad to participate in
this sharing program. After all, this brings them customers
who otherwise wouldnt be there!
