Pool training, diving Jamestown this weekend & Dutch Springs in August

Scuba Shack Weekly – Volume 3, Number 28

Hope everyone had a nice 4th of July holiday. Donna, Matt and I were in Pennsylvania to visit with my Mom and the rest of the family. We had a nice small family picnic at my brothers.

Breaking News – It looks like we will be able to begin our open water class pool sessions after July 20 at the New Britain YMCA. We are looking to lock in dates very soon. Details will be provided on our website shortly. The class will consist of four sessions (Tuesday night virtual zoom session, Thursday night at the shop for gear familiarization and Saturday/Sunday afternoon at the pool). We hope to get several classes scheduled with a maximum of six students per class.

We do need to get back in the water, so we are going to be doing a Drive and Dive this Sunday, July 12 to Fort Wetherill in Jamestown, Rhode Island. The plan is to meet there around 8 a.m. and look to do a couple of dives. If you are thinking about joining us, please let us know and we will be on the lookout. Hoping the weather and visibility cooperates on what will be a late start to our diving.

We are also planning to go to Dutch Springs in August. We had to make a slight adjustment from our original calendar. The trip to Dutch will be Aug. 14-16 (Friday through Sunday). Please check out the Dutch Springs website for details on getting your tickets, the protocols in place, and the waivers. Also, remember there is no camping this year, so you will need to make hotel reservations. We will be running the Advanced Open Water Class this weekend and can also fit in other training. Please contact us at the shop to let us know if you plan to make the trip and want to get in some training.

Thanks for tuning in,
