We are pleased to report the formation of an Apple user group south of the border, Apple Portland Program Library Exchange. We attended their organizational meeting in May and spent an enjoyable evening in Portland as the guest of Terry Ashton of Computerland of Portland, who also hosted the initial meeting. We are happy to see that their membership now numbers in the 30’s. Their dues and program rate structure approximate sours, and we anticipate a good deal of interaction between the two groups. Those interested may contact Ken Hoggatt, President, at 9195 SW Elmrose Ct. Portland, OR 97223 or (503) 639-5505.
