Program for General Meeting
Making Friends With Sharks Without Feeding Them
Let's take a brief look at our website, usadiveclub.org. Over on the far right of the main menu you will find Web Links. If you look at that page, you will find links to our sponsors as well as useful links for divers. There are several links for weather, including a link to the NOAA local marine forecast.
There are several links for webcams around South Florida, in case you want to check how the beaches look from the comfort of your home. We have links to safety information, and to South Florida diving information. We have links to scuba organization like NAUI and PADI, and we have links to other scuba clubs. We also have links to internationally known web resources related to scuba diving.
The most recent addition to our Web Links page is a link to a shop (One World - Zero Waste) that sells reusable items (e.g., metal drinking straws, bamboo eating utensils) which replace single use plastic items. If you know of any other web links that might be of general interest, please let me know.
Don't forget to keep checking our Facebook page for the interesting articles Howard is posting. https://www.facebook.com/usadiveclub
Overseas Dive Trips
Greetings From The Hospitality Hut,
I hope the ocean is warming up so all of the warm water divers can Dive, Dive, Dive!

Hello Summer Divers!
Membership would like to welcome Kimberly Oberst as our latest new member. Thank you Don Chalaire for your referral.
While I write this many of our members are enjoying the Little Cayman dive trip. This being one of our most popular club destinations. Summer is our most active dive season since we love the warmer waters. We will have Caribbean trips as well as local diving. Several years ago we added "mini" trips which may include a weekend in the keys are the Bahamas. In addition to the diving we have many social activities during the year.
Interested dive folks are invited to our general meetings the first Thursday of the month. You are welcome to join in our activities as a guest or download our membership application from the main page and see us at the meeting. We welcome new members.
Come join the fun.

We gathered at the dock behind Shooters in Ft. Lauderdale to catch a water taxi at 10 am. The taxi was late, but that gave us time to talk and hit the restrooms before jumping on a boat for the three hour round trip. It was a fun trip with lots to see. On the outbound leg, the boat captain told a few jokes. Then when we stopped in downtown Ft. Lauderdale, we picked up an official announcer, who entertained us with information about history, houses, and yachts on the way back.
During the ride, we saw:
| the water taxi,
| little boats,
| big boats,
| houses with art,
| houses with boats,
| and boats with boats.
The USA Club Needs You
As many of you know our recent Hall of Famer inductee Ewa Tomas resigned from the Club Photographer position. This position is now open and the Club needs your help. We need a person o r persons to step up and volunteer to take pictures at our events so we can all enjoy the different experiences. Maybe a few people all agree that they will take pictures and it more than one shows up at an event, we have extra coverage.
