Glenside Club Meeting: Thursday July 15, 2021 @ 7:30PM

Months that start on a Thursday always mess up my announcement timing, and I apologize for the late notice. I trust no one will be completely blindsided by the upcoming meeting. They come regularly, like clockwork, though you’d think I’d put a reminder on the calendar to ensure I didn’t get surprised by the date.

It’s roughly 4 months until our November in-person CoCoFEST! In fact, webmaster Eric Canales placed a countdown timer on the main web page showing the time left before show opening on Saturday morning. Project and presentation creation time grows short, but excitement builds as we count down to our first in-person show since April 2019. As I noted at the last meeting and in the recent newsletter, I’m eager to share this new venue with attendees, as I think it offers even more community and collaboration options than Heron Point.

Along with some more discussion around the upcoming show, we should start thinking about the 2022 show schedule and the options. As well, I’d like to gauge interest in a Q3 physical or virtual get together. In years past, the annual picnic/cookout happened in this quarter, though other options are also possible. Obviously, not everyone can drop by the Chicago area in the next few months, but perhaps a physical party with a virtual component might be of interest.

I hope everyone received the most recent club newsletter. I continue to revel in the work folks put into the quarterly publication, and I hope you found at least something of interest in the latest issue. As always, Steve his team eagerly appreciate submissions by our membership. No writeup is too small!

Please join us this Thursday, July 15th, to get updates on the club and activities. And, if you’re interested in more social perspectives, please consider joining the call at 6:30PM Central (1 hour prior). It’s a great opportunity to visit with far flung members, watch some demonstrations, hear about projects, and just enjoy some humor.

Glenside Club Meeting: Thursday June 17, 2021 @ 7:30PM

It’s 5 months and counting down to the the 29th “Last” Chicago CoCoFEST! 2021. While we will belatedly celebrate the Color Computer 1’s 40th birthday this year, I feel the celebration will take on dual meaning as a celebration of in-person discussions and community. To no one’s surprise, virtual events do not replace a handshake, chatting with someone while dining at Portillo’s for lunch, and/or visiting a vendor or exhibitor booth in person to ask one-on-one questions.

We hope to share more logistics details around the Fest at the meeting and get updates on travel situations. I also know our newsletter editor is hard at work with the newsletter team preparing the Summer 2021 periodical, so keep on the lookout for that.

Though Summer does not officially start for a few more days, I know many are already enjoying the better weather and potentially taking tentative steps into their local community as the Pandemic concerns recede. But, if you’re able to do so, please consider joining us this Thursday.
