THE HYPERBARIC TIMES
Those of you at the club night at the Black Boy earlier this month will have heard me say that we are going to move the Hyperbaric Times from being a published 'paper-based' document format, albeit available on line, to a much more concise monthly email newsletter, So here is the first one!
These newsletters will be kept short - just some headlines about recent and upcoming events. We will be using the club website to post the main details and any articles that may be written.
Christmas Party - SOLD OUT! Irina has done an excellent job with the Christmas party organisation and all tickets are now sold. Those going - have a great evening on December 16th!
Winter Tour; Leg 2. Chepstow NDAC Nov 25/26th. This month we have the second dive of the winter dive programme with a dive trip to Chepstow NDAC ( http://www.thedivingclub.co.uk/Diving/Calendar/tabid/54/Default.aspx ). There aren't many people down for this at the moment so if you are interested in going down there to keep your skills up to scratch, then please let Mike or Morag know before THURSDAY 23rd Nov so we can arrange dive marshals etc. Please note that we wont lay on dive marshals if insufficient people are going so register to make sur! e we know you'll be there.
Are our records up to date? We intend to start using more targeted email communications to members for last minute dive opportunities etc. This should limit unnecessary emails and get faster responses. Part of this will depend on your qualification levels. If this has changed recently and/or you didn't update your details when you renewed your membership, please make sure that you send Clare an update.
Thame Valley Search and Recovery Sat 11th Nov. Excellent trip - see discussion forums (Club:General) for some posts by members. You may be surprised what the search and recovery unit have to deal with - not just below the waterline!
Blue Planet Aquarium/Diving with Sharks. Another successful event. Again, see members' posts on the discussion forum under 'Done and Dusted'.
That's all for this month. If you have any comments or ideas, please fell free to email myself or one of the committee members. They can be contacted through the web site.
