From the President
Joyce Szulc

We had a successful combination remote Zoom and in-person meeting Aug. 5 at Serb Hall. For the Sept. 2 meeting, we will use the same combination format, with some enhancements to the Zoom portion. And we have a knowledgeable speaker bringing us up to date on COVID-19 based upon his personal experience. Be sure to attend via Zoom or in-person: whatever is right for you.

 

If you plan to attend in person, please register in advance (and choose your meal preference). You may register online or by phone or email. Everyone attending in person is required to check-in. Please remember to bring your Vagabond nametag. Meeting signup will be available about one week before the meeting. Walk-ins and guests are welcome. See Page 1 for more details.

 

It is membership renewal time for many of us. The preferred method of renewal is by credit card online. You may wish to mail your payment and renewal application to our membership director. Update any of your information that has changed and sign and date the form.

 

Vagabond Tennis Players: Have you checked out the video Tennis Tips provided by member Gene O’Kelly? Gene, who has been running the popular tennis drill program for the past few summers, is putting together a series of 10 tips on how to improve your serve. Many of those tips already are on the Members Only site. Another benefit of being a Vagabond!

 

Regards,

Joyce

Sept. 2 General Meeting
Three Ways! HOW TO USE ZOOM
Vagabond general meetings are now accessible three ways: In-person at Serb Hall, via Zoom video to see and hear the meeting, or by dialing in using your phone to listen to the meeting. With three alternatives, club members can choose how they are most comfortable participating during the current pandemic.

 

To view the General Meeting using Zoom video:
• Install the Zoom app on your device.
  * Using a computer, go to www.zoom.us and download Zoom Meetings.
  * Using a smartphone or tablet, go to the Apple Store or Google Play and download the Zoom Meetings app.

• When it is time for the meeting, click or tap the Zoom app.
  * Fill in the Meeting ID: 837 3356 215 and Password: 8242 2663.
  * Do not enter any spaces – just the numbers.

— OR —

 

• On the device you will be using, access the email that Joyce Szulc will send a day or two before the meeting. It will contain a link to the meeting.
• Click or tap the link, and you will be taken directly to the meeting.

 

Call Linda Horn at (262) 707-1450 for help. She can set up a practice session so all the kinks are worked out beforehand. Contact her no later than Sept. 1 for assistance, though; she is rather unavailable on the day of the meeting.


 

 

Help Wanted!
