Kc Coller, Publicity Director May is always the fi nal meeting for this

part of the year. The Computer Booters Club will not meet during the June, July or August months. This down time will give the club time to prepare for the fall and 2013 agenda. There will be many more guest speakers with interesting topics concerning the world of computing. More “Tips and Tricks” and many more SIG classes offered by the facilitators that volunteer their time to those interested. This past year more than 1000 persons

and his two assistants, Derek Boyle and Liz Bowers, did a thumbs-up presentation on tablets. The history was interesting, but the information about what they can do was even better. Joe did discuss some of the main applications used along with some other unique and interesting applications that are available. He discussed how they may be integrated with other technology in people’s lives (televisions, phones, computers, etc.). There was even information about probable costs and hidden costs of the various tablets. Their presentation was most interesting and well received.

Remember that all residents in any of

the Sun Lakes communities are welcome to attend. There were fi ve lucky members to win door prizes at the end of the May meeting. So plan to come, mingle and learn with new and old friends at the September 4 meeting. See others with the same interest and perhaps win one of those door prizes. No SIG classes are scheduled during

June, July and August. Should you want to know what classes will be offered or when, just log into the Computer Booters’ website, and click on the “Calendar of Events” on the left hand side. Information is already posted. This club was established to aid computer
