January Meeting - January 11th, 2019.
The Q&A session will start at 7:00 and run to 7:30 PM.
The January general meeting will be a mélange of discussion and demonstrations on hardware, software and the cloud. AirDrop is up first: What is it? (What is it for?) Do I have it on my device? (Is hardware a determining factor?) How do I use it? (How do I set it up?)
Next we’ll deal with printing paper calendars for specific purposes: Why do that? Is “there an app for that”?
Last we’ll discuss digital photography: When, where and why did you take your FIRST digital photograph? What hardware did you use? What are some of the advantages to digital photography? Any disadvantages?
As is our usual “order of things,” we’ll begin the meeting with our crowd-sourced Q&A session, which will likely evolve into our main presentation. Following the main presentation/discussion there will be important announcements, and the meeting will close with the monthly raffle.
Join us and add to the wide-ranging discussion to make the meeting an information bonanza!

Annual individual membership is $48.00, which covers all immediate members of your family & gives you access to our monthly electronic newsletter and member-only bulletin board and valuable discounts only available to Macintosh User Group members.

|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.
The App SIG, is the latest SIG from LIMac. It's a peer-to-peer group where members share their knowledge and experience with the
