Newsletter / Meeting Minutes

October 1998

Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 10, at 7 PM, in Room B-309 of the Lycoming College Academic Center. We will have an introduction to ISDN telecommunications by Kathy Kolb. We will also be electing officers for 1999. This will be our last regular meeting of the year.

All meetings are free and open to the public.

Our last meeting was opened by Kathy, in Dan's absence, at 7 PM, October 13. Once again there were several new attendees.

Information for the Good of the Group:

Internet News:

Our Club was founded by a group of devoted BBS users in the dying days of Williamsport boards -- which luckily coincided with the beginning of the public Internet era locally. We continue to focus heavily on the Internet and discuss new developments at every meeting.

Treasurer's Report:

Kathy relayed the following preliminary information from Dan. The Computer Show was slightly more expensive than we had hoped, with a total cost of approximately $400, but the take at the gate met our expectations.

The Club currently has a deficit of $8.


In lieu of our scheduled speaker, we held an open discussion period following the main portion of the meeting (although questions or requests for help are always welcome.) Topics included:

Future Programs
November 10 Kathy Kolb : Introduction to ISDN; Election of Officers
December 8 Christmas Meeting at Benjie's
January 12 Rob Colley (Hoyers Photo): Digital Camera Photography

We are in need of speakers for 1999! Any computer-related topic is welcome.
