August 18 General Meeting: moving to Meetup

After our July recess, come join us at the August general meeting Tuesday the 18th at 7:00 p.m. at the Rohnert Park Senior Center as we enter our 4th decade as a Group and begin moving to Meetup.

Meetups are neighbors getting together to learn something, do something, share something…just what NCMUG has been doing for years. Now we are going to bebroadening our horizons by becoming a Meetup Group and reaching out to a wider range of people to expand our membership and offer more support to the digital community,while staying close to our roots with the Mac and iOS platforms.

We will be providing information about Meetup and how it offers the opportunity to share many things NCMUG now does, including meeting and SIG information,announcements, memberlist conversations and online membership renewal with a wider audience, but still keep NCMUG a volunteer, member-driven group. Early adopters can go to www.Meetup.com, click on Tech and set your limits for 10 to 25 miles from where you live and find the NCMUG group or go to http://www.meetup.com/North-Coast-Macintosh-Users-Group/.

We will no longer be supporting the lending library. It is difficult to get new and up to date content for the library so Wayne and Charlie are spending way too much time andenergy moving books around that very few members are borrowing. The library will be open for the last time at the August meeting, and members are welcome to take home any books that they might find useful. The books that remain after the meeting will be donated to the Sonoma County Library System for book sales.

BRING YOUR LAPTOP, iPHONE or iPAD to the meeting so you can get acquainted with all the features of Meetup and how we will be using it.

*** One lucky person who attends the meeting will WIN a $50.00 gift certificate from Best Buy.***
(must be present to win)

NCMUG at Petaluma Palooza–Plus Drawing Winners

North Coast Mac Users Group was well-represented at the Petaluma Palooza on Saturday, September 21, 2013. This was our first time participating at this event. Thanks to those of you who stopped by to say hello and those who joined as new members!

Manning our booth were NCMUG Board Members Ron Deghi and Vera Zaro. Despite a bit of early morning inclement weather, the clouds parted and the crowds came. There were approximately 100 vendors participating at this year’s event, which is known as the “People’s Expo” and included businesses, non-profits, educational booths, entertainers, speakers, musicians, games–in short–something for everyone.

One of the highlights at our booth that day was our NCMUG Drawing and here are the winners and the prizes they won:

~ Jason K. was the winner of the USB 7-port hub

~ Julie C. was the 1st winner of a 1-year NCMUG membership

~ Beverly A. was the 2nd winner of a 1-year NCMUG membership

Congratulations to all three of our lucky winners! Petaluma Palooza
