Sedona AZ (May 19, 2014) – The Oak Creek Apples Macintosh User Group will meet on Wednesday, May 21, at the Elks Lodge off Airport Road in West Sedona.
Beginning at 5:00 PM:
Continuing our regular sessions of “Mac Basics and Beyond”, local Mac/PC consultant Alan Gore will field any questions the audience might have about the Mac. At this session, please feel free to ask any Apple-related question, from the most basic to the most advanced. Come listen, learn, and ask questions about the Macintosh computer. We stress that there are no “dumb” questions. Attendees of this portion are usually about evenly split between folks new to the Mac and those with greater familiarity with the magical machine. But everyone seems to learn something.
The Main Meeting starts at 6:30 PM:
This month our feature presentation will be:
