"No one knows everything about computers, but we all know something that we can share with others"

    We have been serving Pierce County and the Tacoma community since 1984.
    We specialize in Helping people with their computers and problems they may have with them.

    Working with others with like interests is what the TAPCUG Club is all about.
    Our friendly members are here to answer any questions or problems you may have.

    Browse our Web Site for more information about TAPCUG.
    If you have any questions or would like to speak with a TAPCUG Member we suggest that you attend one of our Monthly General Meetings, which are  held on the Second Saturday of each month at 09:30 am, at the Lakewood  Community Center, see Map at the bottom of the page, and more information in our Information Areas off the menu.

Dave 'SNUFFY' Smith is Webmaster of our web site. I had first taken on as the Webmaster of the club site in about 1998, and took a  break for a while, and took it back on in 2012. This 2017 version is my  second revision since back at the computer this time. I enjoy working / playing on the computer and am self taught not school trained on what I do, I design all the graphics and layout you see here, and it keeps  me out of trouble and busy.
