Dear All,

I can’t believe it is time to send out the December newsletter! It would be great to see as many as possible at our end of year events so take a look below and join in where you can – tis the season to be jolly!


After a trial run at the Reading SAC club house, where we collected feedback that overwhelmingly supported the idea of making it our regular venue, I am pleased to say that we have negotiated the ability for The Diving Club to hold our monthly meetings permanently at this venue. As well as a slight cost saving, this will give us a dedicated facility that can be laid out for casual or formal (speaker) evenings. For details of the location please see the Next Meeting item below.

Next Meeting Wednesday Dec 5th: Christmas Quiz Night!

If you think you've got what it takes to be crowned this years Brain of Britain (or even if you don’t) then you need to attend our Christmas quiz night. We may even have a few prizes to give out for exceptional performances – at either end of the spectrum Winking smile

There will be mince pies and nibbles and a bar. So come along, form a quiz-dream-team and claim your rightful title, and all in our plush new venue at:

Reading BSAC Clubhouse
Next to Palmer Park Sports Stadium, Wokingham Road, Reading, Berkshire, RG6 1LF  Go to the far back/left of the car park and you should see the separate building just through a gate in the fence.

Christmas Party.  Friday Dec 14th

This year we plan to go to WAGAMAMA at the Oracle, Reading, for a bit of fun, food and drink. It would be fair to say that numbers are a bit light Sad smile Where is your Christmas spirit? Come on and have an end of year drink if not a meal with your fellow members and kick off the party season!

Let Rob know at if you are interested so we can plan for numbers.

DIVE: Scuba Santas at NDC Chepstow Sunday 16th Dec

This year the club is again asking for your support of the ‘original’ Scuba Santa’s event in aid of the RNLI. We have 10 folks signed up so far so should be a good laugh. The event is at Chepstow on Sunday 16th Dec. Register at and let me know you are coming so we can all meet up/co-ordinate travel at . It’s a good laugh and for a good cause, so why not get yourself a cheap Santa outfit and jump in?!

We still need volunteers for the following positions:

Publicity Officer

Social Secretary - REALLY IMPORTANT


Please let me know if you think you can spare some time to help out.

And Finally

Don’t forget to check out the club social and dive calendars for more details of activities and keep checking back over the next few weeks as we build out next years dive schedule. There are still some trips coming together (Cornwall) but a lot of the schedule is now posted. We will review all the dives at the January RDP (Reading Dive Planning) meeting.

Best Regards

Acting Chairman, The Diving Club
