Ladies & Gents.
We have agreed to hold the night out at the Salt & Pepper Indian Restaurant again, located on Doncaster Rd. 1900 for 1915 hrs.
I need to have a reasonable idea of numbers attending to reserve space. Could you please let me know soonest if you are coming and how many
people are in your party.
To all members going to Weymouth next year do you want to book evening meals at £12.50 each per night and packed lunches for day time at £4.50 per day. Also we have the accommodation from Sunday to Thursday which means traveling home Friday after diving. Please let me know soonest as the digs want to know, I personally would be happy going to pubs or the chippy which maybe cheaper.
Thank you to members who supported the Ocean Diver training and Try Dive events in October.
Three of our Ocean Diver trainee's have completed their pool training, however Holly needs some further support.
We also have some possible Try Dive requests, therefore I have provisionally booked Riddings Pool for Saturday 8th November 11am-1pm to provide an opportunity to have pool time this side of Christmas. Sadly this is likely to be the last pool session until the new year due to pool parties being already booked for future Saturdays.
Please let me know if you have anyone interested in a Try Dive and/or are able to support on the 8th November if we go ahead.

Looking to go out diving from the rib's on Saturday 16th
meet 0710, slack 1040 to 1200, weather dependent.
Dive plan launch from Bridlington go about 8 miles round the head to Staple Nook. Wreck of the Lord Ernle touches the arch, then drift over the remains of the Radium, just north of it in about 8 meters. Good diving when visibility is OK.
Replies so far:
Five people from last week have taken sign on forms and one Padi cross over so the hard work from you last week all has the potential to make a massive difference to the club membership. There is a possibility of another 2/3 from this weeks try dives.
If you can attend to be in the pool, pool side support or administration please let me know.
Thanks to all club members who helped with try dive tonight. It was a great success,with possibly three new members.
Try dive is now fully booked up on Wednesday 6th of August at Riddings swimming pool. We have six confirmed try divers. Starts at 6.15 for briefing, pool time 7-8 pm
We have booked 3 lanes.
Can club members please confirm if you are supporting the night and if you wish to be in the pool with the try divers or offering pool side support.
Great night at Ashby Ville. Many thanks to all members who attended, supported and got stuck in. Special thank you to Debs for providing us all with hot drinks and BBQ burgers. Well done to all involved and Derek, Christian & Tom who completed rescue elements of their Sports Diver, Dive Leader and Advanced Diver.
