ccOKC General Session: Hank Brown, Storm Tracker for KWTV, Channel 9                         - February 20, 2014, 7:00 p.m.

Hank Brown attributes his passion for severe weather to his father who exposed him to it at an early age. One of Hank's first memories is standing on the porch watching a tornado with his dad while the rest of the family was in the basement calling them crazy.

Hank's love of photography and severe weather brought him to NEWS 9 as a StormTracker in 1998. Since then he has traveled thousands of miles chasing tornadoes for Gary England and the NEWS 9 weather team.

Hank has witnessed countless tornadoes including the May 3, 1999 tornado in his own neighborhood in Moore.

Hank considers it an honor and privilege to warn fellow Oklahomans of impending severe weather danger.  Hank says, "People make decisions that affect their family's safety based on the reports we give. I take that responsibility very serious."

Hank's chase partner is his wife Patty. Together they have four children and are involved with the youth at Eagle Heights Church in Oklahoma City. Hank is also a member of the church's mission leadership team and oversees local missions including working with the Whiz Kids program at an inner city Oklahoma City Public School.  

Join us at 7:00 pm February 20th for this informative and entertaining presentation. Visitors are always welcome and there is never a charge to attend this meeting. The Computer Club of Oklahoma City has two door prizes to give to its members, and two for visitors. This month the prize for the first visitor will be a one-year membership to the Computer Club of Oklahoma City; the second visitor’s prize will be a $20 gift card from Best Buy. For the members’ drawings, we have a two $40 gift cards. Please join us for this informative presentation and stay for the drawing for these prizes. Remember that if you bring guests, you may complete an extra prize drawing slip for each guest over the age of 18 you bring who has not attended the General Meeting in the last three months. However, if you win a prize, you are only allowed to win one prize an evening and if your name is drawn again, it will be put aside and another name drawn.

THE FOLLOWING IS VERY IMPORTANT: In fairness to all, no one will be allowed to register for the drawing after 7:05 pm. You MUST have a current Computer Club of Oklahoma City badge with you to enter the members' prize drawing. If you forget your badge, you have lost it, or it has expired, you will not be eligible to fill out a prize drawing slip. Although you can certainly place your membership with the Club the night of the meeting, you will not be eligible for the members’ drawing until the following month. This is a firm rule for all meetings, so members, please be sure you bring your badge with you each month. You are welcome to stay for the presentation without your badge, but you will not be allowed to participate in the drawing, no matter how long you've been a member of the Club.

The Mission Statement of the Computer Club of Oklahoma City (CCOKC):
Computer Users Helper other Computer Users!

Click Here to Join the Computer Club of OKC. See the Membership form on the WebsiteThe Computer Club of OKC offers many different Study Groups. They are groups of 10-50 people who meet monthly to learn about a particular subject. The format is part presentation and part facilitated discussion. A STUDY GROUP, once called a Special Interest Group, is an informal group within ccOKC whose participants share a common interest.

As such, a STUDY GROUP is the place to ASK QUESTIONS, LEARN and GET HELP about the subject of that study group through the questions asked by all and the demonstrations by the Study Group leader.  All Study Groups are FREE and ALL ARE INVITED!


To facilitate the understanding and use of computers for the community and our members by study groups, technical support, education, training, socialization, fellowship, and speakers.
