Thanks to David Kelch, one of our Miata members,
a hearing loop will be
installed at Bacall for our Miata meetings.
hearing loop system has its own microphone, so the person talking has to use two
mics - one for the hearing loop and one for the regular pa system in the room.
(If we want to use a loop regularly in the future, they can set up a more
permanent system that won't require two mics.)
with hearing aids need to set their hearing aids to the "T-coil", "Telephone" or
"T" position. On my hearing aids, it's a push-button.
a person's hearing aids don't have a T-coil, headsets will be available so they
can take advantage of the loop system.
(Most current hearing aids have T-coils
built-in so they just need to be activated by the audiologist.)
again, David, for setting this up for us!
The club is looking
for drive/trips for next year.
co-ordinators will send out details as the events are booked
The club will only
continue to be viable
if folks are willing to organize, plan outings.
For planning and
organizing a trip member will receive a $25.00 dollar gas
appreciation from the club.
issues or corrections
Other information, events, directions, etc. should be sent to George
and or Marty.
