Current Projects

2019-2025  Our longest project to date is the Computers for Community Project

Note: The club only ran the Tech Fair for two years. As usual only a few people put this whole thing together. The board decided we couldn’t continue this due to insurance premiums becoming to high, SHS raising the rent to use their Gym and classrooms  and it was a serious drain on the clubs finances. It was a very popular event for Sequim.


Planning for 2012 Sequim Tech Fair Underway

Preparations for the 2012 Sequim Tech Fair are in full swing.  The Fair, scheduled for March 17, 2012, will again be at the Sequim High School Cafeteria and adjacent computer classrooms and will consist of technology related vendors and presentations.

Visit the Fair’s web site at 2012.sequim-tech for more details.

SPCUG Refurbishes Computers for Kiwanis’ Service Project

SPCUG is teaming with the Kiwanis to help provide computers for those who otherwise would not have access to them.  The Kiwanis collect used computers from individuals and business who lo longer need them and turn them over to SPCUG.  SPCUG cleans them, wipes the hard drives of all personal information and installs a selection of open source productivity and security software applications.  The Kiwanis then coordinate with various local agencies to find them a good home.

If you are interested in helping with the project or would like to donate a computer or peripheral, contact us at


The Tech Shop; this is the new name for the group that will be rebuilding computers for the Kiwanis to donate. Currently 6 or 7 people have volunteered their time to work on this project.

We are currently working with the Kiwanis to refurbish and repair computers for qualified recipients. One of our members has donated the use of his garage for this work, this is an ongoing project and I will keep you posted as to our progress.

August: We now have some computers ready to go, we have re-installed WinXP  and all updates and service packs. Some additional free programs are MS Security Essentials 4, Open Office 4, Foxit Reader 6, CDBurnerXP, Audacity and VLC Media Player.

Members will meet the week after the regular PC Outlaws meeting on Mondays at 9:30AM, the garage is open at least 5 days a week now for those interested on working on more computers.

In June we acquired the computers Olypen (a local ISP in Sequim) had in storage and have moved them to the building where we will rebuild them, we found most of these computers were ones that were considered not worth repairing, most have been rebuilt by members and given to the Kiwanis (August update).
