Darrell Hovinen
DeafGolfNut@aol.com
Notes from Darrell:
1. It is wise for new golfers to contact me first, because if the tee times are full, then sometimes, the golf course won’t let last minute golfers play if the outing is already full.
2. These outings are NOT for beginners. Players must already know how to play golf AND have average score less than 120 for 18 holes or 60 for 9 holes.
3. Deadline is two weeks before the outing date. After that deadline, I cannot guarantee if they can play, but contact me anyway for more information.

Notes from Darrell:
1. It is wise for new golfers to contact me first, because if the tee times are full, then sometimes, the golf course won’t let last minute golfers play if the outing is already full.
2. These outings are NOT for beginners. Players must already know how to play golf AND have average score less than 120 for 18 holes or 60 for 9 holes.
3. Deadline is two weeks before the outing date. After that deadline, I cannot guarantee if they can play, but contact me anyway for more information.

7/8/04 “Tune Up Your Processing Engine”
by Micki Baumgart, CT
Hosted by Mott Community College ASL Club
6:00 - 8:00 pm
Mott Community College, Flint, MI

RSVP snaeyaert@mcc.edu before July 5th
(limited to 20 participants)
Workshop fee: $25.00
(MCC ASL Club Member: $20)

This is a two hour “hands on” workshop geared for interpreters of any skill level. During the workshop, participants will learn six individual drills designed to enhance their information processing skills. These drills range from easy to challenging and when used, will strengthen the parts of the brain responsible for dual tasking and other skills necessary for succesfful intepreting as listed below.

Simultaneous Interpreting:
-identifying chunks
-double dual task practice
-forced processing time

Consecutive Interpreting
-information switching
-double dual task practice
-increased lag time

Once the participants have learned the different drills, they will get time to practice from the six varieties, based on their own skills and comfort level. These drills are designed as very user friendly and some can be practiced almost anywhere. The presentation objective is to give the participants valuable tools with which they can enhance their own information processing skills and increase their level of confidence.

Faulkwood Shores Golf Course

For more information:
Darrell Hovinen
DeafGolfNut@aol.com
Notes from Darrell:
1. It is wise for new golfers to contact me first, because if the tee times are full, then sometimes, the golf course won’t let last minute golfers play if the outing is already full.
2. These outings are NOT for beginners. Players must already know how to play golf AND have average score less than 120 for 18 holes or 60 for 9 holes.
3. Deadline is two weeks before the outing date. After that deadline, I cannot guarantee if they can play, but contact me anyway for more information.

Association Leadership and Management Program
Gallaudet University, Washington DC
9:00 am to 4:00 pm

We have a limited number of assistantships covering all program related expenses for individuals who enroll in the program illustrated below. Because of the pilot nature of the program all costs, except travel are being borne by GLI and this is a great opportunity to complete a certificate program related to the leadership and management of non–profit agencies and corporations.

Leadership and management in agencies and organizations continue to change and evolve in order for them to better serve their constituencies. This program will serve as a role model for participants by continuing to change and evolve in order to best meet the needs of students. Each course offered is multi–disciplinary (using a thematic approach), enabling participants to touch upon different issues and subjects that affect each other. Ideal participants are individuals who want to assume positions of leadership in agencies and corporations or individuals who are seeking additional tools necessary to lead and manage agencies and corporations.

9/25/04 DEAF, etc. presents The Third Voicing Workshop
The biggest challenge that we as novice interpreters face is voicing the myriad of communication styles and language modes of our deaf consumers. Yet, not only do our test results depend on our understanding, but indeed, the trust of the community. Join us for an evening of voicing practice. Try choral voicing with us. Take a turn at voicing just like you did in school. Discuss with us your vocabulary options. Learn techniques that you can practice on your own at home. Regardless of whether you are preparing for a test or simply seeking to enhance your skill, we welcome you to the first of a series of voicing workshops.

9 am to Noon
The cost will be $15 and includes 3 QA units.
