Meeting Agenda For May 2016

May 3 - How Do I . . . . ? Etc.

Unfortunately, shortly after the May newsletter was sent to the printer our presenter for the first Tuesday had to cancel. I will revise the PDF version appropriately and get it sent to those of you who receive it in your e-mail. The mail recipients will have to watch their e-mail. I believe the web site will be updated appropriately soon.

For this meeting there will be something for everybody! If you have a tablet, it would be a good time to bring it with you – along with your favorite note taking book or device.

I am quite sure everyone will find something useful, a forgotten tip, a new or different way to do something, and be very glad to not have missed out. You can probably get a question or two answered as well.

Hope to see you Tuesday!

May 10 - TUGNET Dining Event

Bob’s Big Boy

Bob's Big BoyIt will be time for our dining get-together when Tuesday, May 10 rolls around. This is such a great time for us to get-together and help TUGNET in the process.

We will once again visit this Southern California restaurant in Burbank/Toluca Lake. The Big Boy standing out in front has made the news in the past when someone stole it. But, as of this writing, he is in place, there for all the tourists to join him for a picture. Maybe some of our group will do so also – won’t that be fun to have on our web site?

Bob’s Big Boy
4211 W Riverside Drive
Burbank, CA 91505

(818) 843-9334

Did you know that this location is the oldest remaining Big Boy in the country? Come enjoy the nostalgia of dining in the 1940's transitional design of streamline modern style while anticipating the free-form 50's coffee shop architecture. The towering BOB’s sign is an integral part of the building design and its most prominent feature. The restaurant was honored in 1993, receiving the designation as a :STATE POINT OF HISTORICAL INTEREST” by the state of California.

Come join your TUGNET friends while enjoying their famous menu with all the favorites of yesterday plus some updated items for your dining pleasure.

Since you probably will be eating lunch and/or dinner this Tuesday evening, do come join us. Most of our TUGNET members prefer to come during the 5:30 - 6:30 time frame. However, the offer is good all day, just be sure to tell them you are with TUGNET. I hope you will be part of the group!

It is important to have a copy of the appropriate flyer for these occasions. It is always available, even if you are not’t able to get to a meeting to pick it up. Please ask for it, either by e-mail or a phone call. The e-mail addresses and phone numbers of board members are on page 2 of the newsletter, so take advantage of that and ask for a flyer when you think you’ll be able to join us.

If you have a favorite restaurant you’d like to have included in these plans, let Jefferson Kent know about it. His contact info is on page 3. He is happy to work with any location which welcomes groups. By the way, it is surprising how many restaurants are glad to participate in this sharing program. After all, this brings them customers who otherwise wouldn’t be there!

May 17 - Q & A plus Bingo

It has been requested that we have a fun night but get some information we need as well. So plan to get your questions answered. There will be plenty of members with answers for you.


We will also satisfy the wants of those who have missed playing Bingo.

Do come, I believe it will be a meeting with something for everyone.
