At the last meeting of EuroSCUG (Eurobodalla Senior Users Computer Club) the guest speaker, Lei Parker, demonstrated his South Coast Travel Guide, “a comprehensive travel website covering the Eurobodalla Nature Coast ”.
After establishing his online newspapers, the Tuross Giant, and then The Beagle, Lei began searching online for a “one stop shop” for tourist information on the local region. Dissatisfied with what he found, Lei developed the South Coast Travel Guide, which includes maps, history, and information about the towns and their attractions, where to stay, what to do, and where to eat.
The website opens with a map of the area. Clicking on a town brings up information of the town’s history and attractions, and links take the user to each cafe and accommodation provider’s website. Lei has also produced brochures on scenic drives, kayaking, cycling, walking, etc and has scanned all of the holiday flyers that are generally available at tourist information centres making them available to visitors before they arrive to assist them in their holiday planning.
At EuroSCUG’s next meeting, at 10am on Wednesday 6th June at Moruya Golf Club, the guest speaker will be Bill Radley, whose presentation is entitled “Making Money on the Australian Share Market”. Bill will explain how the share market works, where to get good investment advice, and how to manage shares in a self managed super fund.
After morning tea, small groups will cover various topics, including setting up a Windows 10 display screen, backing up your computer, genealogy, and Windows 10 for Beginners.
A Help Desk will also be available to provide assistance with hardware or software problems.
EuroSCUG is a group of people willing to share and pool knowledge and experience in modern technology. It is a friendly group, offering a wonderful opportunity for seniors to make friends, socialise, and expand their awareness of local happenings.
Members meet at 10am on the first Wednesday of the month at Moruya Golf Club, and local area groups meet regularly in Batemans Bay, Moruya, Tuross Head and Narooma. Monthly tablet groups (iPad and Android) are also held.
