Hyperbaric Times


March, 2007.



Hello All,


The March edition of the newsletter…




The Dive Experience programme launched last month sees its first shore dive at Stoney Cove on March 31st. We plan to run a boat experience dive on April 22nd in Portland Harbour (see ‘Dive Site Info/Harbour Dives’ at for some possible of the dives). We will contact those who have already expressed and interest to see who is available. If you haven’t told us yet but are interested in this programme (especially new members and recently qualified divers), please email  to let us know. More details of the experience dive programme on the web site.


24th March Portland dive is now behind us and we have 3 (yes 3) trips planned in April. All are fully booked but don’t let that stop you registering your interest in case a space becomes available. They are AOW dives at Portsmouth (9th) and Swanage (21st/22nd) and an OW dive out of Poole (28th/29th).


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


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.




Another packed month of Socials included;

Indoor Climbing

An introduction to Rebreathers at the club night

A visit to Blue Planet Aquarium


And there is still one more left – the Christmas Party Part 2, March 31st. A few places left so please contact Irina if you are interested.


Don’t miss a visit from TV presenter and author Monty Halls on Monday 16th April, 8:30pm at the Black Boy. There will be a nominal charge to cover the cost of the room and limited spaces so book early.


See Social section of web for details.




PAYMENT FOR CLUB ACTIVITIES: We politely ask that payments for club activities, dives etc are NOT left at the Dive Centre. Payments should be handed or posted to the dive (or event) organiser or you may use the online paying facility on the web site. We appreciate your cooperation.


We would also like to remind everybody that to reserve a place you must pay a £10/day deposit (unless otherwise stated) at time of booking and the full balance 1 calander month before the dive. Failure to do so will mean your place could be passsed to someone on the reserve list. Sorry to be strict about this but it important so that we can be fair to all members, especially on popular dives.


Next meeting

The next club night is Monday 2nd April at the Black Boy.


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.
