Scuba Shack Weekly – Volume 2, Number 1
Happy New Year. Believe it or not it is 2019. Another great year of diving is a head. Stay tuned for all the latest updates as we hit 2019 hard.
SECONN’s Frozen Fin event was a rousing success. The entire Scuba Shack team provided support and encouragement as 54 divers registered for the event with about 30 or so hitting the water. The weather was spectacular with water temperature at 47 degrees. A far cry from last year’s brutally cold day. Monty and I got in the water for about 30 minutes or so. I encourage you to check out SECONN as they are a very active dive club.
We’ve had a bit of a change to our training schedule. We will not be conducting the Loomis class this winter. Scheduling was difficult and we are looking at other options for Loomis later. We did add an additional weekend open water class starting Jan. 24 and ending Jan. 27. These classes are proving to be popular and filling up quickly. Space is limited, so we encourage anyone interested to give us a call and reserve your spot.
New for 2019, we will be hosting a Project Aware Specialty course at Scuba Shack on Wednesday, Feb. 20. Project Aware connects the passion for ocean adventure with the purpose of marine conservation. The class will be taught by Deb Dauphanais who has a love of the ocean, New England diving and conservation.
This class is not just for divers – everyone is welcome. All we ask is that you give us a call and sign up. Scuba Shack also has this passion and purpose and as a way of giving back we are making this class complementary. For a nominal fee you can obtain you PADI Project Aware certification card. The PADI Project Aware certification does count toward PADI Master Diver rating. Scuba Shack is Connecticut’s 100% Aware partner meaning we donate to Project Aware for every PADI certification we issue.
So, as we start 2019, I hope one of your new year’s resolutions is to dive more. We will be here to help you keep that resolution.
Thanks for tuning in,
