The Hunterdon Computer Club general meetings are open to the general public at no charge and all interested parties may attend on a walk-in basis. Meetings are usually held on the 3rd Saturday of each month at the Hunterdon Medical Center, Route 31 North, Flemington, NJ. Meetings start at 9:00 am, refreshments are served followed by an open Q&A and then the presentation in the auditorium from about 10:30am to Noon. The meeting date changes some months to accommodate holidays or Medical Center activities.

The club also occasionally has sit down breakfast meetings held at local restaurants where the club pays for the meal and gratuity costs. These meetings are also open to the pubic on a walk-in basis but have a per person fee of $12.00 or the amount posted in the meeting announcement to cover costs for the meal and gratuities. The meal and gratuity fee is waived for all members with paid memberships and for renewed memberships or new memberships paid at the meeting.

Yahoo Group (The Loop)

Hunterdon Computer Club Yahoo Group

This is the club’s forum for making announcements and answering questions about technology.

Requires a paid up membership to make posts and to receive posts to your email address. John Gbur is the forum administrator and you can contact him at meetings for info or help on getting set-up.

Over the years the club used various means of electronic communities. This started in the days of modems and BBS (Bulletin Board Services). The first services was hosted by Jac Carroll and called Midnight Madness. This gave way to the internet and we maintained a moderated email system. We called it The Loop. Eventually we moved to Yahoo groups that is both a group discussion forum and email system. Members can post questions about their computers and have other members participate in getting answers.
