About the Winnipeg PC User Group
Welcome to the Winnipeg PC User Group’s home page. The Winnipeg PC User Group is a non-profit organization (club) for people interested in personal computers and personnel computing. You do not have to own or operate a personal computer, or be a computer expert to benefit from our club. Listed below are just a few of the many benefits and services provided by the Winnipeg PC User Group.
The third Thursday of every month our general meeting is held from 7:00pm-10:00pm at a venue to be determined for each event. Each meeting features: a presentation by a computer industry vendor or club member, a question and answer period, and a vendor sponsored door prize draw is held for members. The presentation generally consists of a demonstration of one or more of the vendor’s latest product(s) and occasionally a future product. Coffee and donuts are available during intermission. General Meetings are free for both members and non-members.
Besides the general meetings, several forum group meetings are held on such topics as Windows xx, Linux, computer hardware and photo editing. These meetings are hosted by various members of the Winnipeg PC User Group. Forum groups are an excellent source of information and assistance with nagging computer problems. The forums are available to members and non-members attending with a member. Visitors should contact the forum leader if they wish to attend. Currently the Winnipeg PC User Group runs around seven forums throughout the month.
Bargain Corner provides you with group buying power, on hardware, software and specialty publications. They are available at general meetings and via special order. Bargain Corner also coordinates group buys where several members agree to purchase a particular product for a set price which is less than the normal retail price. Occasionally vendors make products available at Bargain corner at discounted prices as limited time promotions.
Bits N Bytes, our newsletter, contains reviews, news, and opinions on the latest developments in the marketplace. The newsletter articles are accepted from members, other user groups, and industry journals. The newsletter is distributed to vendors, other user groups, and the Winnipeg PC User Group members.
