Diving in 2014

The sun is sinning in a blue sky, the weather looks great! Whilst gazing out of the living room window. A new season of diving is upon use and some of use are already stacking out dive sites in the English Channel.

Our first Club organised dive is onboard the Channel Diver out of Brighton, in April and we are ready to take the bookings! Excellent boat, lots of space and a perfect platform to start the 2014 season with a gentle splash! We are also looking into ideas of making the club organised diving more affordable, so watch this space!

We have also have implemented a schedule for Pool Marshalling, which we review at the end of the dive season. In short, if you are Sport diver or above, you are asked to do a One Hour Thursday evening Pool Marshall session this year and watch over the Pool for that evening.
See my previous emails regarding the sessions, for more details.

we are not the only Club that have implemented this, for example:

http://www.dacorumsac.org.uk/Data/DSAC%20Pool%20Marshal%20rules.pdf

I also have emailed you all with a questionnaire regarding Training. we are trying to find out what training the club want and are then tailoring the needs accordingly. We are now analysing the results, more information will be made available at a later date.

So, in summery:

Dive booking are now take! And the first dive is in April! (Lots of space! Excellent boat!)
A Pool Marshall schedule is implemented.
Club Training courses are being looked at.
