May Newsletter and Canberra Meeting

hi all!
the May newsletter is now available to rmembers. Happy reading!

For the Canberra meeting we’ll have our guest presenter, Roger’s new insights into the iWork thanks to O’Reilly, Dave’s heading back to the bookshelf to remind us of the best sci-fi, and Santo discovering one the the excellent ’Take Control’ e-books – May could become the project month!

Don’t forget also, ACTApple has a small library of ‘Take Control’ e-books available for free to members. You can find out more from Trevor at sectretary@actapple.org.au.

Enjoy,

April Newsletter and Meeting

hi all!
April newsletter now available to members  here, with some enjoyable new articles and so a big thumbs UP! from me 🙂

A little later than he’d like but like all of us even our dedicated editor’s time gets squeezed too hard occasionally.

A few notes for all…

  1. “Members Make The Meeting”?? You bet! Coming to you in June! But I’m told it’s already started in Port with some enjoyable newbie presenters having a go on the weekend with great success.
  2. In Cbr Trev will be going over Photos on the iPad, but we’ve also had a few people asking about iTunes so I’ll do an informal round-table for iTunes in the main hall.
  3. Looks like Don (one of our Port members) is starting to enjoy his cartooning pursuit more and more. Well done Don! Keep them coming!
  4. And a thought for David Knowles…maybe you’d enjoy a visit to www.discogs.com? I’m guessing you’d have some vinyl records and Discogs has a great way for you to document/value your whole collection. Perfect gift for the avid record-keeper 🙂
  5. Don’t forget our discount code to O’reilly books for some of the best technical and ‘how-to’ books you can get (code in the newsletter).

Enjoy,

regards

March Newsletter

hi all!
time for your March newsletter (members can access it online  here).

A few notes for all…

  1. Have you checked out our software collection on the website yet??
  2. “Members Make The Meeting”?? You bet! Coming to you in June! See inside.
  3.  I’ll be in Port Mac on Saturday for another afternoon chock-full of info. With the interest we had from the Seniors Expo it could be a busy day!
  4. Port Mac had a big day out at the Seniors Expo. Canberra’s turn next. If you can help on the day then it’ll make a big difference. Please let Trevor know. See inside.
  5. Some welcomed variety for our Canberra meeting on Tuesday with Geoff Alves showing all you need to know about travelling with your iDevice. Should be an excellent session. And Tristan taking for Mac Basics.Enjoy,

    regards

February Newsletter and Update

Hi!  The February newsletter is now available for members here.

And here we are charging into another year! Looking forward to catching up with you soonish.

A few notes for all…

  1. A few people have indicated they’ll be paying membership fees at the Feb meeting. That’s fine, better late than never. Don’t forget you can also pay online at our website.
  2. It’s getting busy quickly for us – we’ve got our meeting in Cbr tomoorrow night, then Port Mac this Saturday and South Coast this Sunday.
  3. Port Maccers – people have indeed been busy for you over the break. You have a Seniors Expo on March 6, and Sandra has organised a few volunteers to set up a table there and tell people about what a great group they have at their doorstep. So you may see some new faces at the March meeting. I know you’ll make them feel welcome.
  4. And … the MARCH meeting will also be my first Port meeting for the year. So I guess I can make them feel welcome too! Don’t forget to send me topics you’d like us to cover in the afternoon sessions.
  5. A big HELLO to the new members we’ve picked up over the renewal period – hope you can make it to one of our meetings. Don’t forget to bring your gear to a meeting if you can, and feel free to ask if you need a hand getting it inside.
  6. ACTApple T-shirts are available on our website from here. Yay! High quality t-shirts and very comfortable fabric with a stitched logo (not iron-on), excellent value for money. For our Port Mac members – you’ve got your own “Port Mac” logo.

    Enjoy,

    regards

December Newsletter and Meeting

Hi all!
December newsletter now available for members here.

A few notes for all…

  1. Last newsletter for the year has brought the contributors out of the woodwork. And our regulars also. Well done all. Thanks for the extras. Makes life much easier for the editor.
  2. Canberra Xmas meeting this month with door prizes, nibbles and drinks.
  3. Port Maccers – a very laid back meeting for you this month for a relaxed end to a hectic year. Bring your gear and your questions for a day of chatting to other members to see how they do things.
  4. A big HELLO to the new members we’ve picked up all over this month – in Canberra, Port Mac and the coast. Hope to see you all soon! Don’t forget to bring your gear to a meeting if you can – and don’t forget about our ‘general help list’ – it’s your “get out of jail” card when you get stuck!
  5. All membership payments up to the time of sending this email have been processed. So if you’ve not received a receipt from me then it means I’ve not seen you payment yet, so you should get in touch.
  6. For those who’ve not renewed yet and plan to – poke poke, prod prod….
    – in person at our meeting
    – paypal, ‘send’ payment to president@actapple.org.au
    – eftpos to ACTApple User Group, Beyond Bank, BSB 805022, a/c 3425208. It is critical that you put your surname on the transfer description. If you don’t get confirmation from me within a week then *let me know* – it will be because I’ve not received or can’t identify your payment.
  7. ACTApple T-shirts are available on our website, and have been selling from there also. Yay! High quality t-shirts and very comfortable fabric with a stitched logo (not iron-on), excellent value for money. For our Port Mac members – you’ve got your own “Port Mac” logo.

    Enjoy,
