Hyperbaric Times

February, 2007.


Hello All,


Here’s this month’s update…just in time!




The winter tour leg 4 at Stoney Cove 24/25th February went well with a number of club members taking the opportunity get back into the water. The club booking of a space in the waterside carpark made it a lot easier for those who couldn’t get there by 7am (!) and had to park in the far carpark.


We launched the Dive Experience programme this month which has already seen interest from members looking to use the programme to develop their experience and from others volunteering to help run the activities. The first Experience dive will be at Stoney on Saturday March 31st. More info to follow.


If you are interested in helping out in the running of this programme, please let me know (if you haven’t already) and remember that there will be a meeting at the Black Boy on March 5th, 8:30pm before the main meeting starts.



24th March Portland dive is currently full – but see reminder below!



16th June, Scilly's dive trip: Places still available. See the calendar for more details if you are interested. Diving is with Moonshadow Charters.


Reminder: Full Dives. If you are interested in a Dive but it is listed as FULL on the web site, please register your interest with the organiser. Spaces often become available and they are offered on a first come, first served basis to those on the reserve list.




2 events completed this month, both a great success. Jongleurs and Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET).


Coming up: March is packed with Socials! 


Indoor Climbing on March 2nd.

Introduction to Rebreathers at the Monday club night, March 5th. By Roy Stevenson. Starts 9pm.

Blue Planet Aquarium March 24th.

Christmas Party Part 2, March 31st.


See Social section of web for details of all the above.




I’m pleased to say we have two new members of the committee;

Bryan Johnston is the new Club Secretary and Caroline Kennedy has taken on the position of Publicity Officer that has been vacant since the AGM. Welcome to both from the rest of the committee.


Next meeting

The next club night is Monday 5th March at the Black Boy. Don’t forget – Rebreather talk by Roy! Talk will start at 9pm.


Early Notice: The MAY meeting will be held on Monday 14th May, I.E. the 2nd Monday. This is to avoid clashing with the very popular Babbacombe diving weekend and Bank holiday.
