Tico Byte for October, 2016

Hello, PC Club members,

The 3rd Saturday is coming up again this weekend! The PC Club meeting will be on October 15th this month. That's the earliest that the meeting can happen (because the month began on a Saturday), so don't let it sneak up on you. We will meet in our usual place, at the Pan American School in Belen,  starting at 9 AM. Coffee, snacks, and conversation will be available, as always, at 8:30.  Here's the agenda that we have planned:

  1. Dick will open the meeting and preside over old business.
    1. Ken will welcome guests and new members.

    2. Ken's Treasurer's report:  $2121 in the treasury with 47 paid members. Members can log in and view the details under “Club Business - Financials” on the club website.

    3. Ken will kick off the 2017 annual membership drive. Dues remain $30 or ₡16,500.

  2. Dick will moderate the microphone going around the room to hear your news and questions. Please wait for the mic to reach you and start by saying your 1st name.
