Computer Club

We are a group of friendly people who meet once a week in the billiard room every Thursday @ 2 – 4 pm from November to April. Membership is $10/yr/household.

Our aim is to learn, help and have fun with computers, tablets and cell phones. Anyone is welcome to join and ask for assistance, offer help in any area in which they have expertise or simply meet with fellow residents who are interested in all aspects of computers. Within our group are the residents who monitor our wifi system, order the equipment for residents to purchase, act as webmaster for the website and liaison with the FP BOD and residents to keep them up to date on the system.

Since “Cutting the Cable” is becoming more and more popular, we need people who are familiar with internet TV to give us their experience. In order to be able to pursue this learning experience, we, in conjunction with the FPPOA purchased a 75” TV, which is mounted in the billiard room and can be used by us and the BOD for their meetings.

We can no longer accept old computers, printers or other old equipment. So, please do not leave them in the Activities Bldg. They can be environmentally and safely recycled by taking to Goodwill. We do collect used ink cartridges and donate them to a local school to help teachers buy supplies.

If the money ball pot was not won, the amount is saved from week to week until someone is the winner.

  • You cannot call your winning Bingo card; the callers will get your card and verify a Good Bingo and bring your winnings to you.

  • If a number has started to be called and you yell BINGO, the caller will continue to finish calling the number.Everyone must be at least 18 years of age.
