WELCOME TO THE HOME PAGE OF THE PRESCOTT COMPUTER SOCIETY

random club meeting picture The Prescott Computer Society (PCS) is a PC-based users group located in Prescott, Arizona.  We hold several meetings each month to show you how to get the most out of your computer.  These consist of our General meeting as well as several Special Interest Group meetings.  Anyone with an interest in computers is welcome to attend our meetings and join PCS.  Owning a computer is not a requirement for membership.

FUN (AND INTERESTING) STUFF

stump the geeks photoScene from a typical Question and Answer session in which our members attempt to "Stump The Geeks."  Did they succeed?  I guess you'll just have to come to a meeting to find out.

Actually, some of the questions are submitted in advance so we can come up with useful answers to our member's concerns.  But that doesn't mean there won't be any surprises during the meeting!

MEETING INFO

Unless otherwise noted, all meetings will be held in the Founders Room (1st floor) of the Prescott Public Library.  The Library is located at 215 E. Goodwin Street, Prescott, Arizona.
