October SMUG Meeting

Date: Wednesday, October 9, 2019
Time: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Place: Saginaw Township Fire Department, Station 1, 6171 Shattuck Road, Saginaw, MI
Topic: Managing Your Apple ID presented by Dana Haynes
Your Apple ID is the center of your identity when it comes to managing Apple accounts and gear. It's your iCloud login. It lets you prove you own hardware devices. It's associated with purchases and subscriptions you make at Apple's various stores. But Apple's security for this important ID is so robust that it can sometimes trip you up.
Dana Haynes will show us how to manage this most important identity.

(Now SMUG members are free to attend MIAMUG meetings as guests! You won’t have access to their library or drawings.

MIAMUG meetings are held the second Saturday of each month from 9:30 am until noon at the Wheeler Road Church of Christ.)

October MIAMUG Meeting

Date: Saturday, October 12, 2019
Time: 9:30 am to Noon
Place: Wheeler Road Church of Christ, 1123 E. Wheeler Rd., Midland, MI
Topic: This month we will have Jim Kusmierz providing us with a rundown of various drawing programs that he uses, including Photoshop, Illustrator, and Procreate. Jim will provide a high level overview of what each of these apps is best suited for and show you how to use the basic features of each. Even if you only doodle you will likely learn something that you can use.


SMUG is a group for Macintosh computer users. Though we focus on the very latest in computer technology (as put forth by Apple Computer), the atmosphere at our club meetings and activities is easy-going, low key and friendly.

We welcome everyone — no matter how experienced or inexperienced. If you want to learn about your Macintosh, this is the club for you. Our goal is to provide help, education and support to our members.

We normally meet on the second Wednesday of:

  • January
  • March
  • April
  • June
  • July
  • September
  • October
  • December

The Wednesday meetings begin at 6 pm and last until 8 pm at the Saginaw Township Firestation #1, 6171 Shattuck Rd. Map & Directions

Our regular meeting becomes part of MacCamp in the other months:

  • Saginaw MacCamps are held on Saturday (dates to be announced) in February and August.
  • Midland MacCamps are held on a Saturday (dates to be announced) in May and November.

Along with the Midland User Group, we also co-sponsor MacCamp throughout the year. These information-packed, hands-on, fun-filled sessions attract a lot of attention. They are free to our members and available to non-members for a $5 fee. Our next MacCamp will take place on Saturday, November 9, 2019 in Midland, hosted by MIAMUG. Detailed information here.
