Note: To request a wiki account, please join the mailing list and post a message.
We can use presentations for upcoming meetings, please see a list of ideas if you're willing but lacking a topic.
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.
CANCELLED Technical Meeting: Thursday April 9th
Presenter needed. Willing to volunteer? Tell Tina.
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.)
Anything else you want to see on the agenda? Let Tina know.
Instead of a meeting, practice aggressive social distancing. Take this time to send emails or make phone calls to the people you love.

Litter Bit Better!
Our annual clean up a corner of the world event, helping de-litter a local park as a part of Litter Bit Better. As usual we're teaming up with the geocachers who get CITO credit.
6 pm start time.
Bags and trash are provided, you need to provide your own gloves and a sense of civic duty. If anyone has some waterproof boots and/or grabbers for cleaning the marshy stream edge, that'd be great too.

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? Also see this page for a list of suggested topics http://www.k-lug.org/Meetings
