    E. Mac Meetings

  14. Williamsport -


    The informal Williamsport Mac Meetup group meets usually the 2nd Wednesday, 7 pm in Williamsport at the Coffee & Tea Room
    TheOmnibus.org/room217/ ). Meetings are announced on the Yahoo Listserver. (Date corrected 6/1/2008.)

    Historical Notes:
    • This Mac Meetup group used to be officially part of Meetup.com, but it discontinued using Meetup.com because of the $9/month fee. Meetup.com still has an archive web page with the list of members and their photos.
    • The Susquehanna Mac Users group that met at Penn College several times in 2004 is inactive.

  15. Lock Haven - KcNet.org's Class Registration Page for Mac classes in Lock Haven (link verified 12/2007)

  16. State College - The Pa Apples MUG PaMug.org group meets the 1st Tuesday on Penn State Campus. (link verified 12/2007)

  17. Danville (Inactive) - The Danville Apple Pi group USED to meet the 2nd Monday in either Danville Middle School or Bloomsburg College, but this group has not had any meetings since early 2006, due to low attendance and "burnout" of the organizers.

  18. The Central Pa Macintosh User Groups page shows some additional info.
  19. Also try Apple's User Group Finder . But note that the informal 'Meetup' groups (example Williamsport) are not offical Apple User Groups, and thus won't show up in Apple's list.
