Hello again, and welcome to spring or is it summer?

On the day of our meeting, March 7, Apple is rumored to be announcing the newest iPad, version 3. If so, I know we can count on Dean to tell us all about it. 

For the awarding of our door prizes this month we will revert to the sometimes used Chinese Restaurant Family Menu.

That is, there will be two choices from column A and 4 choices from Column B. A total of 6 prizes will be given away but the winners will have to choose from a total of at least 10 items, as follows:

16 GB TDK Thumb Drive

Macally Power Link

Kodak 7? Digital Photo Frame 

Soundlogic iCapsule Speakers

Targus High Speed File Transfer Cable

Duracell Compact Multi Charger

$15 iTunes Gift Card

iPod Shuffle (older model)

Monster Digital Power Center

Pogoplug Personal Cloud

The usual rules will apply; each paid membership will receive one raffle ticket but additional tickets can be purchased at the cost of $1 or 6/$5. Only one prize per membership still applies, of course. By the way, the Kodak Photo Frame and iPod Shuffle are more of the items donated by member Barbara Klein.

Please be sure to take a peek at the Photo of the Month. It was taken by member David Glassman.

Hope to see you at the meeting,
