SCUG June Meeting

Thanks to Neal Shipley for staging 4 practice sessions on the Zoom app which allowed 15 members and former member John Miller to enjoy our first SCUG meeting since February. The May meeting took place on the usual time and date and went very well.

We will be conducting the June 13th meeting on Zoom also. Neal will be hosting 5 more practice sessions on Zoom before the June meeting date. Neal encourages all SCUG members to join 1 or all of the pratice sessions to make sure everyone can get help with the Zoom app if they need it.

On Wednesday evening Neal sent out a new e-mail with the dates and time of the 5 upcoming sessions and the link to click on to join. Neal has been told that some members found his invitations to the previous practices had gone to their SPAM folder or Junk mail folder.  If you have not received this e-mail check your SPAM or Junk mail or contact Neal.

Members are requested to furnish their own refreshments for these meetings since the ZOOM app does not yet contain this capability.

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. - 4:00 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 by a presentation on computer or technology related subjects.

 

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
