Friends’ Day at EuroSCUG

EuroSCUG, (Eurobodalla Seniors Computer Users Group), will hold its next meeting on Wednesday 4 March at 10 am at the Moruya Golf Club. This meeting is a special Friends’ Day, (previously known as Open Day), and all old and new friends of EuroSCUG are invited to attend and see how the organisation operates.

The guest speaker will be Dale Blake from Clyde Computers. Dale will talk about cyber security and general computer maintenance, topics which should be of interest to all. He will be available for questions during the break.

Following the break there will be a number of small group sessions to choose from.

Charmaine Fripp will be taking a group on Facebook. In the latest EuroSCUG newsletter, which can be accessed online on, there is a very interesting and informative article by Charmaine called ‘There is a lot more to Facebook’. Also in this newsletter there is an article on Off Facebook Activity with a link to instructions for how to find the well hidden tool needed to turn this off.

David Num will be taking a group on Bookmarking or using Favourites to improve web searching. Our newsletter always features very interesting articles from David containing many useful tips and tricks on all manner of things technological.

Photo editing is always a very popular topic at EuroSCUG meetings and this month our photo expert Leslie Willmouth will look at Snap Chat and Photofiltre.

There will be an Apple Help Desk with Apple Guru Peter Anderson to cater for our increasing number of Apple users, a Genealogy Help Desk which will give you the opportunity for a one-on-one session with our renowned genealogist Cora Num, and a Windows and Android Help Desk for both Beginners and Advanced users with Vice President and Technical Team leader Mike Hitchcock and Newsletter Editor and Tech Team member John Allen. Mike and John will provide help on PCs, tablets and smart phones.

EuroSCUG meets at 10am on the first Wednesday of each month at the Moruya Golf Club, and Local Area Groups meet regularly in towns along the Eurobodalla. Monthly phone and tablet groups, both Apple and Android, are also held. There is also an online help service
