Scuba Shack Weekly – Volume 1, Number 12
All of us here at Scuba Shack trust that you had a pleasant Thanksgiving holiday. Hope you stayed warm with the record cold. We certainly have a great deal to be thankful for as we come to the end of 2018. Now our attention turns towards Christmas, and then it is on to 2019.
Speaking of 2019, our training calendar for the first half of next year is complete. We begin with our Sunday morning Loomis classes (Open Water, Core, Discover, Refresher) on January 13 that will run for four sessions.
New for 2019 we will be offering a weekend open water course. This class has been developed for busy lifestyles where the traditional six-week curriculum is difficult to schedule. In addition, we will also be running weekend core classes. Nitrox certification classes are scheduled. We are very enthusiastic about these new options in addition to our normal training curriculum. Our website calendar is up-to-date with all of our activities listed.
It has been a while since I checked in on the Ocean Cleanup project out in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This project has been developed to trap and clean up plastic. The latest update is that it is now in operation and trapping plastic. Next milestone will be to start bringing the plastic ashore. We can only hope for outstanding success.
Our Cozumel trip has proven to be very popular with a number of our divers signed up for the late February getaway for some warm diving. Here is an AlertDiver article from earlier this year on Cozumel. If you are still interested in heading down there with us, the trip closes out in just two weeks on December 7.
Finally, if you are interested in getting a new tank, we have a couple of brand-new aluminum 80s in stock. Additionally we have several used aluminum 80s available.
Thanks for tuning in,
