I hope your summer went as well as mine. The mountains of Colorado are certainly different from Green Valley’s desert. With the new fall season starting, be sure to check the Club Calendar for additional classes.
We're not just a Computer Club anymore! We provide information for everything from Linux to Macs to Windows (including Windows 10). You can learn about iPads, iPhones and iPods; Android phones and devices; stock investing; and genealogy.
Of course, we cover Digital Photography, and how to stream TV through the internet using Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast and other devices.
The new 35mm slide conversion machines have been installed. You will need additional training to use the new ones. One of the old machines is still operating.
We all want our club services to be as up to date as possible, so if you have an idea for a new class, please let me or Bob Ogus (email@example.com) know.
A rose to all of the instructors who taught all summer. Another rose to all of the monitors who kept the doors open this summer. We look forward to seeing you soon.
And remember that the Computer Club operates with an all-volunteer staff and cannot open each day without monitors on duty. We are always in need of additional monitors. If you have an interest in volunteering some time, please contact Mike Kearns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, August 25 is the last day to register for APCUG's International Computer & Digital Technology Conference at the early bird rate of $85. Go to http://apcug2.org/apcug-2015-las-vegas-conference for details.

During the year a total of 207 items were checked out by Club members: 137 from the PC library and 70 from the MAC library. While books on Windows operating systems continue to be the most popular topic, the borrowing of hardware items has jumped into second place. The video camera recorder was the most popular single item with 10 checkouts, followed closely by the slide sorter with 8. Another hot topic was iPads. Books on iPads were borrowed 18 times from the MAC library and 5 times from the PC library.
PC Library Summary
In the table above, iPads are included under Miscellaneous; Google Apps are the main items in the Apps topic and photo editing falls into Multimedia.
