Self Help

•••MacsWest Help
MacsWest members do not make house calls. If you have any problems bring your device to the genius bar any Wednesday between 12:00 PM and 1:30 PM in Room C; by appointment only. To make an appointment, send a request to geniusbar@macswest.org. Someone will get back to you with further information. Having monitored for the club during the last 12 months is a requirement to obtain assistance.
