We can use presentations for upcoming meetings, please see a list of ideas if you're willing but lacking a topic.


LUG News

We generally meet monthly for technical presentations (2nd Thursday of the month, 6 pm, RCTC), and monthly for socializing (varies). We no longer meet monthly for lunches, if you are interested in reviving this tradition please contact an officer.



Technical Meeting: Thursday June 13th

We do not have a speaker for the June technical meeting, so we will make our first attempt at disc golf for the year! The weather report looks good, so keep your fingers crossed! We will use the RCTC course. Gather in front of the RCTC Regional Sports Center (aka the Field House, see the campus layout link below if you're not familiar with that location). Don't worry if you're not familiar with disc golf, we have all skill ranges and some discs to loan out if you don't have your own.

6 pm, in front of the RCTC Regional Sports Center.

Anything else you want to see on the agenda? Let Tina know.

Social: June

What might you want to do? Tell Tina.


Technical Meeting: Thursday July 11th

Tim Anderson will present on his customized keyboard, a Dactyl WIP. Attendees with their own customized input hardware to show off are welcome to bring theirs for "show and tell" that will occur after the presentation.

6 pm, in or near RCTC Heintz Center's H1411. Note: For those of you that have been coming for a long time, we are still in the same place, the rooms in the Heintz Center were renumbered. Prior to March 20th this room had been known as HA108. If anyone finds updated maps, please let us know.

Upcoming Meeting Crisis!

We need some meeting topics (& speakers) for 2019. We'd like to know what you want to see and hear about. Please email Tina with suggestions for topics. Should we run some previous sessions again (maybe something you really wanted to see but missed out on)? What type of topics are good, what type are bad?
