    Greetings From The Hospitality Hut,

    I am happy to report 2 first-time guests attended the January, in-person, meeting of the USA Dive Club.

    Erick Allen found our club from the Waterfront News.  He was certified in 1968 in Los Angeles.  Erick is a Master Scuba Diver and has logged over 1000 dives while treasure hunting, diving wrecks, taking underwater images and my favorite, drift diving.  Erick enjoys diving in Little Cayman and would like to visit the Galapagos Islands.

    Wayne Sullivan discovered our club on the Internet.  Since 1963, as an instructor, Wayne has logged an extraordinary 15,000 dives.  His favorite dive site is the Cay Sal Bank.  Wayne is an underwater photographer.

    Please be sure to welcome and introduce yourself to new members and guests when you see them, either in person or while attending a popular ZOOM meeting.

    I encourage you to visit our home page www.usadiveclub.org.  Please click on the calendar and keep up to date on all the diving and non-diving scheduled activities. You may also take a look at the photo gallery and take a peek at past events.

    I wish you all Happy Diving.

    Happy New Year From The Hospitality Hut!  

                             

    We have made it through some very challenging times and are about to turn the corner......if we continue to take precautions.

    USA Dive Club member Ronnie, hosted a very successful Holiday Social Party at The Hampton Inn.

    I would like to take this time to acknowledge several guests who were in attendance. Member Alison was accompanied by friend Nancy Widener.  Alison flew in from Oregon and her guest came up from Miami.  Several members have non-diving spouses/partners that are avid attendees of Social events. Roy attended with guest Mary Kay, member Jay had his lovely wife Carla on his arm and Alan escorted his charming wife Dawn. Guest John found us on the Internet.

    I wish you all the Happiest and Healthiest New Year. 2022 here we come!

    Greetings From The Hospitality Hut,

    Where has another year gone?  It is so hard to believe how long we have all been apart....well not all of us.  A few are attending in person meetings at The Hampton Inn.  Some of us are still attending meetings on ZOOM. 

    The Holidays are upon us.  I am sure you have all seen evidence in the local stores and on TV commercials. 

    I would like to take this time to wish you all a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving.  Eat, drink and be merry.  We have all earned it.

    Greetings From The Hospitality Hut,

    A big welcome home to 28 USA divers who survived the South Caicos trip along with their fearless trip leader, Ronnie!

    Greetings From The Hospitality Hut,

    In August, several members attended the first in person meeting held at The Hamptons.  Many of us, including myself, attended via ZOOM.

    At the September general meeting two ZOOM guests were present.

    Ashley Guajardo lives in Texas. She met our club while aboard the Belize Aggressor.  Ashely was certified in 1998.  A club trip is one of the best ways to meet new divers.  Hopefully she will have an interest in joining our club.

    Next Lee Ann Waggener, from Pompano, attended the meeting.  She has been a diver since 1993.  Lee Ann heard about us a while ago from current club members.  Lee Ann has also applied for membership.  Welcome aboard!

    Greetings From The Hospitality Hut,

    This month the Hut is buzzing with new activity!

    A long awaited trip to Belize is underway.   Thanks to Ronnie and Nils for the change of venue from Little Cayman to South Caicos.  Little Cayman is still uncomfortable opening due to low vaccine percentages.  They are protecting their islanders.  Good for them!

    The August 5th USA Dive Club general meeting will be held at The Hampton Inn located at 720 East Cypress Creek Road,  Fort Lauderdale, 33334.  You may still join us on ZOOM.  I will be sharing trip information via ZOOM as well.

    I encourage you to visit our home page www.usadiveclub.org.  Please click on the calendar and keep up to date on all the diving and non-diving scheduled activities. You may also take a look at the photo gallery and take a peek at past events.

    Greetings From The Hospitality Hut,

    The Fourth of July is right around the corner.  It's time to celebrate another "Happy Birthday" to America. Let's hope the sky is glittered with beautiful fireworks.  

    Alan Feuerman is working on several fun ZOOM social events. If you had not yet had the chance to join us, please try and do so. We really do have lots of laughs.

    Your BoD is working diligently to secure a new meeting place for general club meetings. The after COVID market is a difficult one as I am sure you all are seeing. 

    Many of us are still concerned with is ongoing virus.  Please stay safe and don't let your guard down.  I agree with the former Yankee catcher, Yogi Berra, "It ain't over till it's over."

    I encourage you to visit our home page www.usadiveclub.org.  Please click on the calendar and keep up to date on all the diving and non-diving scheduled activities. Julie is busy posting current local dive images as well as screen shots from meetings and social events. You may also take a look at the photo gallery and take a peek at past events.

    I wish you all Happy Diving.

    Greetings From The Hospitality Hut,

    We are getting closer and closer to returning to our new "normal". Now we are facing moving forward with or without masks. That is the question!! Fans of The Karate Kid can hear Sensei Miyagi utter to Daniel-san..."Mask on, mask off".  Choose wisely.

    Trips are filing up and divers are getting ready to embark on the first trips since we returned from FIJI in March 2020.  These are exciting times.

    When we will be able to meet again is still uncertain, but rest assured that day will come. 

    Until we meet again, please get the vaccination when you are eligible and encourage your loved ones to do the same.  Most of all, please stay safe. 

    I encourage you to visit our home page www.usadiveclub.org.  Please click on the calendar and keep up to date on all the diving and non-diving scheduled activities. You may also take a look at the photo gallery and take a peek at past events.
