Self-isolation fun: virtual car show ‘n’ tells

From our intrepid reporter John Burnet, Brack Driving Concepts

With this virus thing going around, most are limiting outings and are longing for something car-based to do. So, let’s try an online car show. Thursday evenings, just after supper, I’ve set up a call. Join from your computer, tablet, or phone – there is an app to download, we use it often for the club. If this is of interest, save this invite in your calendar and reply letting us know you are interested. Not interested, you can stop reading now.

The meeting starts at 7 PM EST, each Thursday. We’ll reserve the first 15 or 20 minutes to help new users. We’ll walk you through set up and how to listen/watch and participate. Real meeting will start at 7:30 PM.

Some guidelines, so we can all have a great experience (and new users, we’ll help you understand the controls for these things).
Make sure your microphone and speakers are working properly, and video camera if you wish.
Be in a quiet area – background noise is troublesome and very distracting.
When you join, you will automatically be set to mute. Resist the urge to take yourself off mute – say Hi to everyone using the chat window/feature.
Got a question or something to say, type it in the chat window to Everyone, and the moderator will get to you as soon as possible.
Leave your video OFF unless you are presenting.
There will be a moderator, may or may not be me. The moderator will take turns letting people “present” their car, cave, tools, project, whatever.
Want to present your car? Send me ( an email a day or two in advance and I’ll schedule you in.
Need to leave the call, no worries. In the chat window, say goodbye and off you go. Thanks for joining. Hope you’ll join next week.
Thoughts and comments are welcome.
