Scuba Shack Weekly – Volume 1, Number 17
Welcome to the last edition of Scuba Shack Weekly for 2018. We all trust that you had a Merry Christmas and are looking forward to a Happy New Year. Bring on 2019!
Last week Monty and I attended the December Boston Sea Rovers meeting. With just a little more than two months before the 65th Clinic, the preparations are in full motion. Scuba Shack will have a lot going on this year with Monty running a Public Safety Professional Workshop on Friday, March 8. Scuba Shack and Dive On It handling the Discover Scuba on Saturday, March 9 and we will also have our booth set up on the exhibitor floor Saturday and Sunday, March 9 & 10. We hope you will be able to make it up to Danvers, Massachusetts for the show this year. Get your tickets online.
Before that however, we are getting all of our preparations completed for starting up our 2019 training beginning with tank inspections.
We will also be at Green Harbor Beach in New London for SECONN’s 54th Annual Frozen Fin Dive on Jan. 1. Who knows who will be getting in the water. Come down and find out.
In preparation for our Key Largo trip in April, I have been doing some research for the PADI Fish Identification specialty that we will be conducting. We will be doing this class in the hometown of REEF (Reef Environmental Education Foundation). REEF’s mission is to conserve the marine environment by protecting biodiversity and ocean life. I have been a member since 2010 and as part of the Fish Identification class we will be conducting a REEF survey where you will identify, count and submit a survey of what you find.
Additionally, I hope to incorporate a visit to REEF HQ. If you are interested in this specialty class in April give us a call to sign up and check out the Key Largo logistics on our travel page.
REEF also puts on what they call “Fishinars”. In preparation for Key Largo, you might want to view the May 10, 2018 Fishinar titled Diving the Florida Keys.
As we close out 2019, I’d like to thank all of our Scuba Shack family and friends for your support in 2018 and looking forward to seeing you soon.
Thanks for tuning in,
