Notes From The President’s Desk

CCS President

MX-IV. This was by far the best Mini-Expo yet!

Many thanks to those of you who attended. The feedback we have received indicates everyone had an enormous day, a grand time, and giant hot dogs. And, many took home valuable prizes.

A big thanks to those who pitched in and helped in its execution – working the corridors, working the registration booths, filling the many welcome bags, and monitoring the classrooms.

Kudos to CCS members Charles Berkley, Joe Nowak and Bill Ziegler for their part in helping to make MX-IV a success by giving standing room only presentations.

Our sincere thanks to Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Linspire, WebWorking Services, Hitachi, Smart Computing, Connect 3D, Epson, and Microsoft for their support and presentations. Our thanks, also to the 31 Vendors (listed page 29) who donated more than 200 products for our door prize drawings. We encourage all of you to visit their web sites and investigate their products.

They support us, we should support them.

Congratulations to Donn Fairbank for holding the “lucky ticket” for the Grand Prize, a Canon S2 IS, 5MP, 12x Digital Camera and an Epson Picturemate Deluxe Viewer Edition Printer.

For those who were unable to attend, we still have a number of MX-IV Commemorative Shirts available for a donation of $5.00 per shirt. Contact Beata. These will go fast.

The date for MX-V has been set as September 16, 2006, and the location, Prairie State College, Chicago Heights, IL.
