Meeting Agenda For April 2018

April 3 - Bryce Software With Carol Lambert

Carol says: “I plan to demonstrate the Bryce 7 Pro software program. This is a very inexpensive 3D landscaping program and one of the easiest to use.

Bryce is an award winning, fun, feature-packed 3D modeling package designed to allow new users to quickly create and render stunning 3D environments. Bryce combines exceptional power with an innovative interface for incredible ease of use.

“If there is time, I'd like to show you a totally different program called Wings 3D. Wings 3D is an advanced subdivision modeler that is both powerful and easy to use. This program makes things, while Bryce makes landscapes. Items created in Wings can be brought into Bryce. For instance; if you make a lake in Bryce, you can make a boat in Wings and put it in the Bryce lake.

“I hope to make this an interesting and enjoyable evening.”

April 10 - Board Meeting

The second Tuesday of each month is our TUGNET board meeting. In case you aren’t aware of it, our board meetings are open to all members. So if there is something on your mind, an idea you’d like to introduce, or a gripe (gosh, I hope not), you are welcome to come share it with us.

We meet for dinner at 6:00 p.m., meeting begins at 7:00, in the conference room of the Horseless Carriage Restaurant, Galpin Ford, 15505 Roscoe Blvd., North Hills.

April 17 - Al & Ed’s Autosound Celebrates 60 Years

People started personalizing, hot-rodding and “xtreming” their rides after WWII, and it’s never stopped. Fast forward to today, and you’ll find Al & Ed’s Autosound to be on the leading edge of vehicle restyling and personalization. “If you can dream it, we can make it happen. It’s what we do.” Southern California retailer Al & Ed’s is celebrating 60 years in an industry company visionaries Al Brotsky and Ed Zionts worked to establish. Celebrating 60 years is a milestone!

We’ll be welcoming John Haynes back this week. You will remember him from the great presentations he gave us in the past.

Remember the Smart DriverTEK Workshop Phil Downs brought to us in November? This is basically a follow-up to the information he presented for senior driving safety. Safety features missing from your ride? John will show and explain how adding parking assist sensors, blind spot detection systems, accident avoidance products and more can be accomplished. In addition, he does not hesitate to discuss the cost of additions.

Hope to see you since this is important information.

April 24 - Two Guys from Italy

Two Guys from Italy
16915 San Fernando Mission Rd
Granada Hills, CA 91344
(818) 360-2292

Location Map

Most get there between 5:30 & 6 p.m. Hope to see you there.

Here comes the fourth Tuesday of the month, so it is time for us to dine together. This is the month for us to return to Two Guys from Italy, one of our favorite restaurants. It is in the same business complex as our meeting hall.

The menu is varied with, obviously, the emphasis being on Italian dishes. But there are entree salads to please those who may not want the pasta dinners, as well as sandwiches and soup. They are a generous donor who pays at the end of the evening. Try to come as the number of guests is always an influence as to whether we can return.

Nothing like eating with friends!

Here is your opportunity to help TUGNET while you enjoy a lovely, healthy meal with no preparation or clean-up. Really — what can be better than that?

Remember, this is the easiest way to help TUGNET’s financial needs since 20% percent of your meal total will be returned to us. So please plan to eat out!

From 4:00 to 8:00 our meals will apply toward fund raising. Be sure to bring our flyer or show it on your phone or other device to the cashier. They are generous with their donations from these fund-raising meals and have always sent a check for our share very promptly. Can you tell me an easier way to earn funds to support TUGNET? Please try hard to participate.

They are good about having us sit together and the waitress marks all our orders as "TUGNET." Most get there between 5 & 6 p.m.

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 of the monthly newsletter. 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!
