Club Meetings

Held in the Hall at Pioneer Park, 11 Hastings St, Nelson on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 2pm. Our next Club Day is on Wednesday 20th November. Judy Pittman will give a talk on her experience of using HomeLink (www.homelink.org.nz), a house swapping organisation. For a yearly fee of $200 you can use the HomeLink website to search for accommodation and arrange a swap. The Pittmans have been using it for 5 years, usually swapping cars as well as houses, so the only cost of a holiday is spending money and airfares. They have visited the UK, Canada, Vietnam, Australia and Sardinia since joining. There will be time for questions, so bring them along. Bring a friend to Club Day, catch up with other members and have afternoon tea. It's FREE.

LATEST NEWS - GRANT SIDAWAY PRESENTATION

On 9th September Grant Sidaway gave us his final Presentation entitled "What's the Point". Grant is retiring as CEO of the Federation of SeniorNet Societies and we wish him well. Always inspirational, Grant's talk reminded us how important it is to keep up with technology - to grow, thrive, enjoy lifetime learning and have fun along the way. With skill and humour Grant showed us such things as how the internet is being used today. We saw some of the endless possibilities of using robots and amazing 3D printing. He went on to give examples of wearable technology and demonstrated how to handle the “Hey Google” command on a phone for helpful or hilarious results. Thank you, Grant, we will miss you greatly.
