Guest Speaker - Mark Powell

Wednesday 1st March 2017 - 8pm

The Britannic was the sister ship to the Titanic and sank in 1917 just a few years after her more famous sister. Last year a group of international technical divers were involved in an expedition to dive the ship in the centenary of her sinking. At 120m the Britannic is a challenging dive but is considered to be one of the very best wreck dives in the world. Technical diving instructor Mark Powell was part of the exclusive team that dived the Britannic and this talk will cover the history of the ship as well as looking at the logistics involved in planning and executing challenging dives such as this. Mark will also be showing some of the stunning images and video that was captured on this expedition.

07/12/2016 20:00 Annual Christmas PARTY!

 

CHRISTMAS PARTY!

Hi Folks, its that time of year again, come drink and share food with your diving mates.

I am sure that you have all been inspired by this years run of the GB Bake-off so this is your chance to wow us with your buns and floor us with your tarts. So why not bake up a storm and then come down to the "Bring and Share Christmas Dinner"! We will need:- Salads and veg, meat/vegetarian option, bread, and puddings!  

In an effort to make sure that we have some form of culinary balance can people with surnames beginning with the letters A-L bring puds and the rest please bring savouries.  Feel free to find someone to swap with or bring both if you want.  Can you email me your preferred item and I will try and ensure that we don't have 30 puddings on the night (actually that would be a good outcome and better than 30 salads...eek) so best to email and I will try and organise it.  AND if you are having a really stressful week and just cant manage to make anything or get to the shops then just come along and share what we have.  We would love to see you there!

8:00 pm-10:30pm
