October Meeting - October 13th, 2018.
The Q&A session will start at 7:00 and run to 7:30 PM.
Our October meeting takes on a unique format as a special live MacVoices episode. Our guest speakers are friends of LIMac, Adam and Tonya Engst who will discuss the Apple Watch. What makes the presentation special is that Chuck Joiner of MacVoices will act as moderator and primary questioner. The session will be recorded by Chuck and may become an episode available on the MacVoices website at a later date. LIMac members in the audience will also have the opportunity to ask questions of all three presenters. We don’t know exactly where the discussion will go, but as Chuck has said these episodes are organic and go where the participants lead. It’s bound to be very interesting and entertaining.
We’ll open the meeting with a Q&A session which will end promptly at 7:30 so that we may connect with Chuck, Adam and Tonya on Zoom and begin the discussion. Following the presentation we’ll make our announcements and hold our monthly raffles, including a special “hat-wearing-members raffle.”
We will begin the meeting promptly at 7PM and stay on schedule to be ready to join the conversation with Chuck, Adam and Tonya on time. Mark your calendar and be sure to join us at this meeting to be part of a different LIMac experience.

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
