> Let's Get Ready to Rolex!
> The National Federation of the Blind is making plans for the debut of
> our prototype nonvisual interface that will empower a blind person to
> drive a car, and we want to know if you plan on being there. On
> Saturday, January 29, 2011, we will hold the first public demonstration
> of work conducted under our Blind Driver Challenge initiative. At the
> Daytona International Speedway, a blind person will drive a car, without
> sighted assistance, on the track in front of tens of thousands of fans
> before the start of the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
> We are encouraging the members and friends of the National Federation of
> the Blind to attend this ground-breaking exhibition of our NFB Jernigan
> Institute. The Rolex weekend generates a lot of traffic in Daytona and
> room rates are higher than our traditional event rates. In order to
> make it possible for our members to attend, we are attempting to
> negotiate the best hotel rate. So if you are interested in attending,
> please tell us by sending an email to bdc at nfb.org, and let us know if
> you would plan to stay overnight on Friday or Saturday.
> For more information about the Blind Driver Challenge of the National
> Federation of the Blind visit our website at: blinddriverchallenge.org.
