Notes From The President’s Desk

by Al Cheeks

CCS President

  Mini-Expo VI. MX-VI is now history, and attendees and participating vendors and looking forward to MX-VII.

  MX-VI, our sixth annual program, was probably our best one. Borrowing a phrase provided by the APCUG Region Advisor, “it ran like a fine tuned clock”, it started promptly at 9:00am and the last grand prize was drawn and presented at 5:00pm. But, the intervening activities are what excited most attendees. Presentations by Joe Nowak on Google, Smart Computing on their support programs, Epson’s on their printer technology, Microsoft on their future table top computer and a glimpse of Halo 3, and last but not the least, Corel on their movie editing programs, captivated all attendees.

  All attendees received a commemorative T-shirt, and a copy of WordGenius Webster’s Unabridged, or Collegiate Dictionary.

  Of course the excitement of the day was Dave Batterson winning the Toshiba laptop computer, and Bridget Archer winning the Epson 1400 printer, our two grand prizes.

  A sincere thanks to those who helped make this the best MX yet:
