Meeting Agenda For July 2018

July 3 - Pot Luck, Q & A Panel

Yes, we shall start off our first meeting of July with a Pot Luck. I’ll bet it surprises you as much as it did me as I looked back to when we last had a Pot Luck and discovered we hadn’t had one since November of 2016. Therefore, everyone should be enthusiastic about participating this first meeting of July and join in the fun. You won’t find better dishes to satisfy your palate than at the Granada Pavilion on this particular evening as you feast on dishes brought in by our members.

We also haven’t had an evening when our own experts discuss the subjects raised from those attending. We consistently learn from our own members when questions come up during a meeting so it’s time to have them up in front. When you are working with your computer or other gadgets and think, “I wonder how I could . . .,” make a note of it so you can ask about “it” at this meeting.

As a reminder, bring a dish that will serve 8 - 10; if you are unable to bring a dish, please contribute $10 so we can add additional food to the table as needed. By the way, there are plugs on the wall behind the table so you can keep a hot dish warm.

July 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.

July 17 - All Things Computer with Jay Ross

Everyone will be glad to see Jay Ross on our calendar after a long absence. He describes his presentation as “All Things Computer,” meant to include Best Practices in Security, Windows Tips, Maintenance and even a Q&A/Discussion.

I doubt anyone will leave without saying they picked up a tip, learned where to find something, or learned about an area of the computer that had puzzled them. Jay is very thorough in answering questions and enjoys having the input to talk about.

This will be a learning experience for all to make better use of their time with their computer or other device. How better to spend an evening?

July 24 - Dining @ Panera

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?

Club dinning benefits run from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Flyers will be available, printed at the meeting or in your e-mail.

Most get there between 5:30 & 6 p.m for dinner where we can sit together and enjoy visiting with each other. Try hard to participate!. Hope to see you there.

There are servers waiting for you — I think it’s called a win-win!

Try to come as the number of guests is always an influence as to whether we can return.

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!
