The next meeting of the Halifax Computer Club (HCC) will be Thursday, 
June 1st, 2017, at 7:00 P.M. in the Community Room of Sobeys at the 
corner of North St. and Windsor St., Halifax.

     The next meeting of the Nova Scotia Linux Users Group will be 
Monday, June 5th, at 5:30 P.M. at Uncommon Grounds Coffee Shop, 1030 
South Park St., Halifax.

Both clubs are finding smaller turnouts as summer approaches, as members 
have other interests and conflicting commitments, and as meeting topics 
are seldom discussed in advance.  NSLUG for several years had developed 
an arrangement where every second meeting would be held in a classroom 
at Dalhousie, rather than at Uncommon Grounds.  One or two individuals 
would present a topic -usually on Linux, but sometimes on such topics of 
common interest, such as computer security.  The classrooms at Dal. are 
no longer available to outside groups, so the technical meetings have 
been discontinued for some time.

Recently there has been some discussion at the coffee shop by several of 
us who are members of both HCC and NSLUG about the possibility of having 
one or more combined meetings of the two clubs, using the meeting 
schedule of HCC at Sobeys, with someone provided by NSLUG to present a 
topic which could be of common interest to members of both clubs. *As 
always, guests are welcome at both clubs*, and HCC has a good video 
projector.

I suggest that this idea be considered both at the next meeting of each 
club and, if you wish, by sending messages to either club, or to both 
clubs, as you choose.  You might also consider what topics could be of 
common interest to members of both clubs, and who could be prepared to 
present them.  The summer schedule for HCC is available at:

and the email addresses of the two clubs are:

     Halifax Computer Club <hcc at chebucto.ns.ca>
     Nova Scotia Linux User's Group <nslug at nslug.ns.ca
