November training, DEMA & scuba regulators

Scuba Shack Weekly – Volume 1, Number 10

So, the mid-term elections are over, we will be getting a new governor in Connecticut and I heard a forecast for some mixed precipitation early next week – certainly dry suit season. 

The first weekend of November saw us still doing quite a bit of training. The Rescue class completed their open water scenarios at Beach Pond in Rhode Island while we finished three intense days of confined water and classroom training for Open Water Scuba Diver. Monty and Chris conducted a public safety hull inspection class in Greenwich this week. While our plan is to conduct the open water dives this weekend at Fort Wetherill. Fingers crossed for some good weather.

Next week the shop will be open on Monday, Nov. 12 and then we will be closed Tuesday, Nov. 13 through Saturday, Nov. 17 as we head to the Dive Equipment Manufacturing Association (DEMA) Show in Las Vegas. Stay tuned for an update from DEMA.

Demand lever, piston, diaphragm – all parts of a regulator. We use our regulator on every dive. Do you need a quick review of how a regulator works? There are lots of references out there. I found this one on the DAN website that is worth a quick read to re-familiarize yourself with how your regulator works. Worth a look.

Finally, we got a couple of pictures from Turks and Caicos from one of our divers. Thanks Bob for sharing these nice shots of a grouper at a cleaning station along with a couple of French angelfish and a friendly turtle.

Hard to believe that Thanksgiving is only two weeks away. We’ll be around, so stop by and let’s talk diving.

Thanks for tuning in,
