SCUG October Meeting

 

The Whiteside County Senior Center will not open in October for meetings. We had 13 people at the September meeting with the Zoom app from APCUG. On October 10th at 1 PM, Neal Shipley will be host an online Zoom meeting with a Question & Answer time and a video presentation.

Neal will host a few practice meeting to insure that you will be comfortable with Zoom. Please try one, it’s not that difficult if you have a camera and microphone. The times are all for 7:30PM,  Fri. Oct. 4th and Fri. Oct. 9th. A few days before the October meeting Neal will send an e-mail containing the url to get connected to Zoom for the meeting.

NEWSLETTER 

Hosted by Sauk Valley Online

Got a NEW Computer?  Are you NEW to Computing?  NEW to the Internet?

THEN YOU'RE A NEWbie!

NEWBIEism CAN be cured! Come see us at SCUG.

Our Motto is "User Helping User."

No matter what your Newbie problem is - chances are we've got someone who has...

Been there - Done that!

Why re-invent the wheel?  Collectively, we've made more mistakes than you can dream of.  But, we've learned from them and we try to share our experiences with each other so that we don't have to make the same ones over and over.  This frees us up to make new and even more advanced mistakes!

We usually meet the 2nd Saturday of every month. Our monthly meetings are held at the Whiteside County Senior Center located at 1207 West 9th Street, Sterling, IL  (see Map). We meet from 1:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. (see 2020 Meeting Dates for exact dates). We usually begin with our pre-meeting Windows instruction from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. (We sit around a computer and discuss and try and answer any computer questions our members may have.) At 2:00 p.m. we have a short business meeting usually followed some sort of presentation by one of our members on some program that they use or found interesting.

 

We also have a monthly Newsletter with articles on things of interest to our members.


Mission:

The Sauk Computer User Group ("SCUG" for short) is a registered, not-for-profit group whose goal is to promote the use and understanding of personal computers through discussion and exchange of ideas and resources.  We are here to help you with any problem you may have or can give you the information you need to make the use of your computer or other tech gear, an enjoyable experience.  The club can supply you with technical assistance from club members who have experience (and experiences) similar to yours.  We meet once a month (usually the second Saturday of each month at 1:00 p.m.) at the Whiteside County Senior Center.

We hope this site will prove useful in:

  • Recruiting new members to our local, not-for-profit organization
  • Continuing our tradition of "Computer users helping computer users"
  • Increasing computer and Internet literacy in the local communities of Lee and Whiteside counties in Illinois
  • Assisting the world wide community in using computers and common tech devices
