SCOUG OS/2 For You - May 1998
The President's Message
by Terry Warren
First, I would like to thank everyone for their support. I am
looking forward to the coming year partly because of the
great work done last year by Rollin which provides such a
good framework to start from and partly because of the challenge
involved in establishing new goals and opportunities for our
club and its members.
We do have a couple of major events on the horizon: first, we
are going to try to repeat the quite successful SCOUG Open House
of last year with a SCOUG 5th Anniversary bash at the September
meeting (yes, SCOUG will really be 5 years old then!).
It is never too early to start planning and we are already
actively recruiting volunteers and/or ideas for this party. Some
of the ideas discussed at the last board meeting were: SCOUG
museum, SCOUG trivia contest (there seems to be a theme emerging
here) as well as the usual demos, presentations, games and prizes.
WarpStock II will take place in Chicago in October and we will
do what we can to provide support. There is a possibility of video
conferencing or at least some type of live Internet feed; more on
that as it develops.
Speaking of video-conferencing, we have also been approached by the
San Diego OS/2 Club as to the possibility of connecting their club
with ours via some sort of video hookup; this might be a good
opportunity to test the feasibility of the concept before Warpstock.
On a more immediate basis, I would also like to get more active
participation by a larger percentage of club members in performing
the ongoing tasks that help make SCOUG a successful organization.
These tasks include the monthly chores related to running the
meeting as well as writing articles, website maintenance,
newsletter production, serving on committees, or even just making
suggestions for things we don't think of. In the past, these tasks
have been done primarily through the efforts of a small number
of dedicated people and I know that they would appreciate others
sharing the workload.
To help organize volunteer efforts, we will be posting a sign up
sheet at the meetings with the known tasks on it. Please take the time
to review this list and sign up for something even if on an irregular
basis or as a "backup."
Thanks in advance for your help in making SCOUG a continuing success.
