Note: due to illness and other complications, the meeting will not be streamed.
Aaron Davis of Apple will be the featured speaker November 24, updating Washington Apple Pi on whatever Apple happens to have released by that time. Possibilities include: new iPads [✓], new Mac Pros [✓], new MacBooks [?], new Mac minis [?], new Mac iMacs [?], new Apple TVs [?], Maverick operating systems [✓], wearable electronics [?], teleportation devices [?], superluminal transportation [pending], giant flying saucers [✅]-- we really don't know.
Aaron brings a wealth of experience and knowledge about all things Apple, so bring you questions about these things that we don't know anything about yet.
The November meeting will be held at our usual location, the Enterprise building, Room 178 on the George Mason University campus in Fairfax VA. Check back closer to the meeting date for any updates or changes.
The meeting will be held in Enterprise Hall, Room 178.
Address: 4400 University Dr., Fairfax, VA (near Rte 123 and Braddock Road). Directions and Map: http://www.gmu.edu/welcome/Directions-to-GMU.html

The Shenandoah Parking Garage (formerly the Sandy Creek Parking Garage because it is located on Sandy Creek) is fee-based facility. It is more convenient and closer to the meeting location. The Pi will subsidize the facility's parking fee by providing vouchers for donation request of $4.00.
If using the parking garage, park in Visitor's area; i.e., the lowest level. Take the elevator to the third floor (Campus Level), and exit along the sky bridge.
After the meeting, exit the garage using the exits marked for Validated Tickets. Your parking ticket goes in first. Then the validation ticket goes in next. If you have any problems, there is a speaker box for calling the parking lot attendant at the checkout point.
Free parking in Lot A (see map below)
Park as close to Mattaponi River Lane as possible, then walk north along that road toward the main campus buildings. The sidewalk route takes you directly to the side of Enterprise Hall, on your left. The meeting room is located on the second floor, accessible via outside stairs or via an elevator on your right as soon as you enter the building through the doors behind the outside stairs. We will endeavor to have signs posted to help guide you to the right location. It is at least a five-minute walk from Lot A and up a slight incline. We will be using a golf cart along the route, to offer rides to those who want or need a lift.
Handicapped Parking: There are three handicap parking spaces next to Enterprise Hall that can be used by members, on a first come first served basis. Have your Handicap Sticker showing on the dashboard or on the rear-view mirror.
