The first morning we had to be up and at our table at 7am! That's when registration started for all rally sessions that required pre-registration and a fee. We had 2 sessions: Hands on iPhone/iPad class, and Hands-on Android phone/tablet class.
Then, we had to gather our wits and be prepared to present 3 seminars back to back for the rest of the day. Here's the schedule of our offerings at the rally.
The next morning we woke up to even colder and rainier weather, if that's possible. Our first seminar was after lunch, so all three of us: Jim, Devon and me, hung out at our table for the morning. We had lots of people who had attended our sessions the day before, come by to sign up for membership, or ask us questions. Then we went off to teach Movie Maker. That went really well. I think the people that attended that one will go back to their computers and create true works of art!
Then we had the first of the hands-on sessions. iPhone and iPad Tips for Travelers. We had about 16 people in that one and we paired them up and made them buddy up and do things like take pictures of each other and email them. Then take a video and watch it. We taught them how to turn their phones into hotspots and share the Internet connection with their computers and tablets. And, last but not least, we taught them how to use Google Maps (or Apple maps) - the most indespensible smartphone app for Travelers.
We were SOO busy we barely got to catch our breath, let alone visit with all sorts of friends that are here to attend the rally. We did have dinner with our good friends Phil and Tracey of TechnoRV the night before everything started. And, we got in a little get-together made possible by the new social network for RVers called RVillage.com.
Other than that, it was all work, work, work. We were so glad to have Devon here with us - while we were presenting seminars, he could be at the table for people who wanted to sign up for membership. All totaled, we welcomed 78 new or renewing members to Geeks on Tour! I did snap a few pictures, and here they are in a collage - prepared in Picasa, of course!
Now to rest for a few days ... then we'll head back south where it's warm! We'll be spending most of April in Florida.
