Agenda For April 2018
April 3 - Bryce
Software With Carol Lambert
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.
10 - Board Meeting
The second Tuesday of each month is our TUGNET board meeting.
In case you arent aware of it, our board meetings are
open to all members. So if there is something on your mind,
an idea youd 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
& Eds Autosound Celebrates 60 Years
People started personalizing, hot-rodding and xtreming
their rides after WWII, and its never stopped. Fast
forward to today, and youll find Al & Eds
Autosound to be on the leading edge of vehicle restyling
and personalization. If you can dream it, we can
make it happen. Its what we do. Southern California
retailer Al & Eds is celebrating 60 years
in an industry company visionaries Al Brotsky and Ed Zionts
worked to establish. Celebrating 60 years is a milestone!
Well 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
Guys from Italy
16915 San Fernando Mission Rd
Granada Hills, CA 91344
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
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 TUGNETs 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 youd
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 wouldnt be there!
