Originally called AppleCan, until Apple objected, the group began for enthusiasts of the Apple II and similar computers. Later, in 1984, a S.I.G. (Special Interest Group) for Macintosh owners was added, and this grew to become the main focus of the club. In the early days, it was not uncommon to have many hundreds of members attend a monthly meeting. There was a club magazine that morphed into a more simple newsletter, software libraries, and regular guest speakers. There was also a BBS for direct dial-in access running the Warp Six BBS software (by member Jim Ferr), and later it was a First Class setup that also served to host our web site.
