TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME

Lexington Legends baseball game

May 24th at 2:05 p.m.

Central Kentucky Computer Society will be the Legends' Organization of the Day on Sunday afternoon, May 24th at Whitaker Bank Ballpark on North Broadway.

Join your fellow CKCS members at the Ballpark on May 24 when the Legends play the Hagertown Suns at 2:05 p.m. CKCS will be the Featured Community Organization. CKCS members will be hosting a table in the concourse at the stadium to pass out information about the Computer Society and the upcoming classes.

One member will also participate in an on-field pre-game interview and an on-air interview over the radio network that will be broadcast throughout the stadium during one of the innings.

Tickets can be obtained from the Legends' box office prior to game day for $9 and on the day of the game for $10.


Dr Fixit - Saturday, June 13, 10:00 a.m.

Dr Fixit goes to Kentucky Trade at 373 Virginia Avenue

Debug your old computer or buy a new computer


The Dr Fixit crew will make a road trip to Kentucky Trade for the June meeting. Bring your computer and your problems for expert analysis.

You also have the option to purchase parts or peripherals for your computer or to add a new computer to your home or business.

Or, if you don't have a specific problem to fix, you can just browse through the store and ask questions about computers or other devices.

The location is 373 Virginia Avenue about one half block from South Broadway. CKCS volunteers will assist you with carrying items to or from you car and we will help the expert technicians of Ky Trade with your computer.

This is an ideal opportunity to get some free expert assistance and to explore new options for your flock of electronic gear.


Changes to Kroger Card Program

To all CKCS Members and Friends:

We appreciate your participation in the Kroger Community Rewards program. The donations from Kroger have enabled several improvements in our organization without dues increases.

But, Kroger has made changes in the way that the program works that will take effect on September 1.

Kroger now requires all those who wish to have their spending at Kroger generate donations for CKCS to do two things:
1) get a Kroger Plus Card and
2) register on the Kroger website with CKCS as your donation choice.

Step 1 - Most everyone already has a Kroger Plus Card (it has a picture of a tomato on it), but if not you can get one instantly at the office counter in any Kroger store or we have a few at the CKCS front desk.

Step 2 - Use the Kroger website to register your Plus Card number and choose "Central Kentucky Computer Society" as your organization.

Detail instructions for Step 2:

a) go to https://www.kroger.com

b) click on Community Rewards

c) click on "Create an Account" to enroll

d) enter your information: including email address and a new password for this account

e) click Create Account

f) enter your Kroger Plus card number - it is on the both the wallet card and the keyring card

g) Click "Enroll now for Community Rewards"

h) enter the organization name "Central Kentucky Computer Society" or the CKCS number which is 11119

Note that if you get all this correct, then when you make purchases at Kroger your checkout receipts will have Central Kentucky Computer Society written at the bottom.

Your existing Kroger Gift cards can still be used to buy groceries but after September 1 will no longer generate donations to CKCS.


Disk Erasing Service

CKCS is now offering a service to erase your older disk drive so you can feel confident that no personal information is left on it before you give it away or dispose of it.

Bring your disk drive or whole computer to CKCS on any Wednesday between 10 AM and 1 PM or Thursday between 1 PM and 3 PM or to the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which meets on the first Saturday of every month between 10 AM and noon. There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
