Meeting Agenda For May 2017

May 2 - Panel for Information and Questions Answered

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, there’s a good chance someone else attending will be able to help you.

I hope you’ll come prepared to keep the panel members talking.

May 16 - Russ Walter, Author

While the name may not be familiar, chances are you’ve 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! That’s 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 with TUGNET

Dining Fund Raiser at Sizzler
7131 Van Nuys Blvd.
Van Nuys
½ block south of Sherman Way

Come 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 TUGNET’s 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, wouldn’t that be grand? If we could garner a check for at least $100 each time we have a dining event, with two events we’d have one night of our meeting room rent covered. Now tell me, what’s better than that?

If you have a favorite restaurant you’d 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 wouldn’t be there!
