However, CreativePro isn’t the only expo being held this month. The Rogue Valley Macintosh Expo, hosted by the
Josephine County Mac Users Group, will be held on July 20 in Grants Pass, OR. It will feature such presenters as Elizabeth Statmore of Circus Ponies, former Apple User Group Program Coordinator Garr Reynolds, and former Apple Regional Liaison Steve Welsh. There will also be raffles, a gaming area, hands-on stations, and more.
MUGs are good places for making new friends, finding Mac-loving buddies, boning up your technical expertise, finding solutions to technical problems, and sometimes finding a good deal on used hardware. For more info on MUGs, and to find the location of the one nearest you, go to
