Representatives of the Hervey Bay Macintosh Users Group (HBMUG) reported strong interest from crowds gathered at Hervey Bay, Queensland’s first-ever computer fair.

Held on Sunday, the event was organised by Aussie Computer Fair and marked the first time the computer fair concept, already widely popular in capital cities, had arrived at the Queensland town.
The event offered a great opportunity for members of HBMUG to raise awareness of their efforts in the area, which include regular meetings and assistance from Dr Ken ‘DocOnMac’ Hoyle and others. HBMUG also promoted local Apple Authorised Reseller Widebay Technology, which was unable to make the event.

“We had the largest crowds of any of the tables,” Hoyle reports. “Darren, Pauline, Alain, Gerry and Graeme helped us fly the flag for Apple and HBMUG, and there was a great deal of interest in the Macs and the club. We hope that we’ve raised awareness of Apple and Mac in Hervey Bay.”

HBMUG’s next meeting is on Thursday 4 June at the Hervey Bay RSL Club Pialba; visit the group’s Web site for more details.
