What's New
 

Who are we?

TarMac, established in April 1984, was founded by a group of three Mac enthusiasts meeting at Bill Robert's home. They founded TarMac on the principle that formalities during user group meetings only interfere with the club's primary purpose -- to enjoy all things Apple. Because of this founding concept, TarMac remains an informal organization, open to all.

As Apple has evolved, so has TarMac. While once solely a Macintosh users group, we've grown into a group that supports all Apple products.

And to stay abreast of the times, TarMac now has a Facebook page. Click on the logo below to see our page.
