The amount of instruction RASCAL is able to provide is directly related to the number of volunteers willing to instruct.
RASCAL volunteers offer instruction in three different ways.
- During the weekly Tuesday meetings at the Josephine County Fairgrounds in the Floral building there are presentations on General topics during the first hour of the meeting and presentations on Beginner (or Novice) topics during the second hour.
- Formal classes are held in the Small Business Development Center on the corner of 4th Street and H Street downtown.
- Discussion groups are held once a month for each of the three different operating systems; Windows, Apple and Android.
Discussion groups are opportunities for members to discuss what they know with other members. There will be a discussion group leader who can help guide the group. Discussion groups are no-charge for RASCAL members and registration is not required.
The Apple Discussion Group is on the first Tuesday of the month.
The Android Discussion Group is on the third Tuesday of the month.
The Windows Discussion Group is on the fourth Tuesday of the month.
All three groups start at 1:00pm and are one hour long. If no one is there at the start of the meeting the leader is free to leave, so if you plan on attending, please be there at start time.
Some classes are not dependent on the operating system on your computer, but most are. Classes are organized by the operating systems for your computer.
