This event was cancelled in December 2017 due to weather. We are trying again.

This is an opportunity to enjoy friends, good food, and to swap or sell our Mac and iDevice treasures. Bring your favorite brunch dish to our belated Holiday Buffet and your Mac and iDevice treasures to swap or sell. Also bring your family and friends! Please sign up (below) for food, chilled juices, tables, power requirements, setup and cleanup. MLMUG will provide paper goods, and hot beverages. (Bring serving utensils marked with your name.)

If you wish to sell at the swap meet, register for a table space below. There are electrical outlets if needed. Table signups must be done by Wednesday, January 10th, to ensure you will get your spot. Any hardware you bring must be clearly marked to describe its working condition. Any software transfers must be done legally. MLMUG assumes no responsibility for items sold.

We will provide 2 tables for FREE items. Please make sure that none of your free items remain behind for our crew to dispose.

Festivities will begin promptly at 9:00 AM, so come early enough to have your table set up by then. See times below. Come with your family and friends, prepared to celebrate the Holidays, eat great food, and buy and sell Mac treasures.

Bob Barton Bob Barton Drones - Now and Future

Unmanned Air Systems/Vehicles (UAS/UAV), often called "drones", are rampant in the consumer, professional and military spheres these days. Most carry a camera and have a video link for "first person viewing" (FPV) by the operator. The military versions have optical, infrared and radar sensors and some carry missiles and bombs.

This presentation will provide an overview of what is in use today and look at some interesting applications being developed for future use. If time and weather permit, a live demonstration of one of the more popular consumer models, the DJI Phantom 3, will be provided.

  Bob is a long-time member of MLMUG. He was Treasurer for several years and is currently Webmaster and Newer Users Special Interest Group leader. He retired from Lockheed-Martin in 2009 from a career in power systems (at GE) and aerospace engineering. Macs have been in the Barton household since Bob's wife, Karen, obtained a Mac Plus for desktop publishing in the 1980's.

 Pot_Luck MLMUG Members MLMUG Pot Luck Buffet, Swap and Sell Meet, Member's Show and Tell, and Election of Officers for 2018
The month of December brings an opportunity to enjoy friends, good food, and to swap or sell our Mac and iDevice treasures. We will not have a scheduled guest speaker. Instead a session called "Show and Tell" will allow members 5, 10, or 15 minutes to present a topic. Please contact Maria O. Argüello at by December 1, with your topic. We invite you to bring a sweet or a savory dish to share with us. MLMUG will provide paper goods and hot beverages. We will have tables set up for the swap and sell meet. Bring your slightly used but in good working condition hardware, software, books, or periodicals to swap, share, or sell. Bring also any items you want to give away for the free table. MLMUG is not responsible for exchanges or sales. All items that don't find a new owner from the free table will need to go home with their original owner. December is also the time for electing board officers for 2018.

Please sign up by Monday, December the 4th, so we can prepare space for your goods, and the food goodies you will share. We need to know in advance how many tables to set up. And if you can help with set up and clean up we appreciate the help. Sign up here
