Tico Byte for September, 2018

¡Bienvenidos a bordo, PC Club members!

The 3rd Saturday is coming up again this weekend.  The PC Club meeting will be on September 15th this month, at the Pan American School in Belen starting at 9 AM.  We will be meeting in our normal room in the bottom floor of the Yellow Building, all the way to the back.  Coffee, snacks, & conversation will be available, as always, at 8:30.  Bring anything computer-related that you have questions about or anything you would like to share with the group.  This is the earliest in the month the 3rd Saturday can occur, so don't let it sneak up on you.

  1. Dick will open the meeting & preside over club business. He will ask someone to record the October meeting. He will welcome his wife, Connie, to the meeting this month!

  2. Kim will welcome guests & new members.

  3. Kim's Treasurer's report:  $1942.25 in the treasury with 27 paid memberships for 2018 & 1 for 2019. [Ed. Note: This link is open to logged-in club members only.]

    Dues remain $30/year/family. (New members' initial dues are prorated to the months remaining in their 1st year.)

  4. Ken & Tio will run the October club meeting while Connie & Dick are in Texas. But we still need a replacement for Dick at the ARCR meeting on 10/25/2018. The slides are already there, but we need someone to flip them & answer questions about living in CR. It's a 20-minute gig in a San Jose hotel.
