Hello and Welcome,
A short Special General Meeting of Members will be held before the Main Meeting on Tuesday. 
Tuesday 26 June - Special General Meeting of Members
This meeting will consider two minor changes to the Group's Constitution. The Agenda for the meeting was sent to members on 28th May 2012.
Tuesday 26 June - MAIN Meeting -  5:30pm - 8:30pm
It's "half time" in the great 2012 SPCUG world series, and our special mid-match entertainment is being provided not only by the Sydney PC Users Group, but by our special guest, Debbie Firth, the Sales and Marketing Director of mobile phone and digital technology accessory aficionados, "Mr Mobile", with Debbie herself having previous had years of experience working at Nokia.
Based on Botany Road in Alexandria, Debbie and her husband are the Mr Mobile power team duo, with an astounding range of technological gadgets and accessories for all types of mobile phones including iPhones and Androids, iPads, Google tablets, and more, from bluetooth accessories to lithium ion and even solar battery packs.
There's the new brand new adaptors for iPhones and iPads that turn those devices into amazing recordable digital televisions that I briefly showed you last month, through to Bluetooth enabled helmet adapters, from in-car kits through to tablet stands, from in-ear noise isolating headphones through to notebook extended battery packs, from "MICR" branded toner and printers through to Mercedes Bluetooth upgrade kits - there's even two way radio equipment and new comms equipment that referees on field (among others) are flocking to.
Our group has morphed into a technology users group, and many of the gadgets, add-ons and accessories that Mr Mobile offers are designed to dramatically improve the usefulness, lifespans and more of many of those technologies, so for your chance to WIN an IDTV digital TV adapter for your iPad 2 or new iPad, or your iPhone 4S, valued at $100, alongside a battery pack or two for your smartphone, with all these items cool and different giftoid ideas as well... come to the Main Meeting, and enjoy the 2012 "half time" entertainment!
See you there...
Best regards,
John Mathews
