Our apologies, but the details of this month's meeting are still being ironed out. Friday's topic is "To Be Announced" as we don't know which speaker will be available (It is a 3-day Columbus Day weekend). The General Meeting will be at NYIT as usual, the November one is in the planning stage for another session at Apple Roosevelt Field.

|You’re Invited to the MacBasics SIG
In order to meet the needs of a wider range of members and not put off those with more than beginning skills, we’ve changed not only the name from Beginner SIG, but also the focus of our SIG. We will still cover applications like AppleWorks and simple procedures like setting up your first Mac, file systems and using utilities, but we’ve also matured, as much of Apple’s software and hardware has. So come on down. We'll be where we’ve always been, doing what we’ve always done, but with a new slant and a new name. The MacBasics SIG is led by Geoff Broadhurst and Rick Matteson. The SIG meeting is broken into two sessions. The first is from 7:00 to 7:30PM, during which we will have our own basic level question and answer session. We’ll break for the featured presentation and raffle and come back for the main portion of our SIG meeting from 8:30 to 10 o’clock. Of course before our MacBasics main demonstration we'll have our own novice Q&A session across the hall, while Bradley's dealing with the more complicated problems in the main room.
As always come with questions. The MacBasics SIG is not just for beginners, but we do discuss aspects of the Mac that may sometimes be overlooked. There will be a MacBasics SIG meeting this month. The topic has not been announced.
