August Meeting - August 9th, 2019.
NO Q&A THIS MONTH.
After the success of our May meeting on the iPhone X at the Apple Store, Apple has invited us back and this time they have put together an iMovie triple header presentation. That's right, our August meeting will be held at the Apple Store in Roosevelt Field at 7pm.
Apple personnel will host three sessions on shooting and editing movies. The meeting will kick off with "Shooting Videos on the iPhone" which will supplement what we covered at our May meeting. Next we will discuss "Get Started with iMovie" and then finish up with "Shooting a Movie Trailer" which will delve further into iMovie.
To get the most of the session, shoot some iMovies and include scenery, people and action shots and bring your own iPhone and/or iPad. Get there early or stay after the meeting to play with and get hands-on experience with all of Apple's products.
If you plan to attend, current LIMac members should send their names to David's email at email@example.com and he will coordinate with Apple.
Members who wish to attend this special event and have not renewed for 2019 can send a $48 check to Don Hennessy or bring payment with them to the meeting.
Remember - There will be no LIMac meeting at NYIT in August.
Hope to see you there.

|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
