NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION
Tuesday, September 2nd, 4pm to 5pm
presented by Jack Wilfore

New Members should drop by for a review of our Club's assets and resources. This is an opportunity for members to meet each other and learn about the Hilton Head Island Computer Club. A great starting point for those of us who don't know what we don't know about computers. If you haven't attended one of these sessions yet, come and learn more about the Computer Club. Please let Jack know if you plan to attend.   jwilfore@gmail.com.


All Things Apple Special Interest Group
iPad for new users
Monday, September 8th, at 2 pm

led by Wes Taylor and Judi Shade

The meeting of the All Things Apple SIG on Monday, September 8 will be a basic training session on the Apple iPad for new users and those who are considering purchase of an iPad. The meeting will be open to all members, so look for your Eventbrite invitation, which will be sent out soon to signup. Rather than a slide show, the format will be a tutorial video. The presenters will pause the video to answer questions in order to meet the audience interest and needs.


All Things Windows Special Interest Group
Tuesday, September 9th, at 4 pm

presented by Jolyn Bowler


Jolyn will review features, as well as discussing “how-to” and problem solving. Please send Jolyn Bowler (jolyn.bowler@gmail.com) any questions you may have, or to let her know you'll be attending.


Help for the iPad

Here is a neat 30 minute video introduction to the latest iPads. This video addresses many of the issues that both new and experienced iPAD users might experience, such as
- Resolve Freeze - Hard Reset
- Multitasking - double clicking home button shows multiple apps that are running
- Apple TV mirrors iPAD on your TV
- Camera tip - don't use shutter button, Vol+ acts as a shutter without moving the iPAD
- SIRI
- Settings
- Battery Life
- Google Chrome rather than Safari
- Email
- Print

Call for Volunteers - Resource Center Substitutes!

Many of you are familiar with the Resource Center. It’s the place you go, call, or come to when you have a PC or Mac question or problem. Our volunteers do their very best to help members with their PCs, Macs, software or hardware. Now we need your help. Please consider adding your name to our Resource Center Substitute List. Our substitutes fill in for the Resource Center Volunteers when they can’t be there…I mean everyone is entitled to take a vacation, right?

The Resource Center is open M-F, in two shifts, 10 AM-1 PM & 1-4 PM, with two volunteers per shift. You would be with a regular volunteer, helping members, and learning along the way. In addition, we will be instituting a training session so that you’ll be able to “hit the ground running.”

If you are interested, even if you only have one day of the week when you might be available, please contact Rosemary Sparacio for more details at RCVscheduling@HHICC.org
