    Greetings From The Hospitality Hut,

    I am pleased to report at the August general meeting two first-time guests were in attendance.

    Thank you to Russ Manhold for introducing Brent Harder, and his lovely wife, Juliana Palou to the club.

    Brent was certified in 1973 and is a Dive Instructor.  He was first certified in West Virginia and has way too many dives to count.  Brent enjoys all aspects of diving such as spearfishing, photography, diving walls and wrecks and of course a relaxing drift dive to sightsee all the underwater bounty. 

    Brent's wife, Juliana, is a Master Diver, certified in  2015 and has logged 180 dives.  She enjoys looking into the deep blue for the large pelagic underwater wonders. Juliana would like to dive in the Maldives with her favorite dive buddy, Brent.

    Greetings From The Hospitality Hut,

    It certainly has been a long time since we have met.  Hopefully, we will have a large member turnout at the August general meeting.

    I do not have any guests to report but I am looking forward to greeting guests at upcoming meetings. Remember, you don't have to pre approve a guest.  All are welcome to walk in.

    Club trips are completed for 2023.  I have been enjoying the images Julie has been working diligently on and adding them to the USA Photo Gallery.

    Greetings and Salutations From The Hospitality Hut,

    Rainy Season has arrived on schedule.  Lots of thunder storms that manage to upset our beautiful ocean making visibility very poor. Having said that however, members continue to enjoy a very active Local Dive schedule. 

    At the June ZOOM general meeting we had 3 guests.  Harley, Alex and Robert from Ocearch, who are associates of our speaker Tim Barker, signed in to join the conversation on catching, tagging and gathering blood samples from these large fish.

    Thanks to our VP of Programs Rick D. we continue to have great presentations  Please be sure to give Rick a thank you for his talent in obtaining interesting speakers for our club meetings.  I know it is not an easy task.

    The club is heading to Bonaire very soon so I am attaching a picture taken in 2018 when I was trip leader.  That's me standing inside my dive locker down on the dock.  Have a great trip!

    Greetings From The Hospitality Hut,

    It was such a pleasure to see 32 members and guests attend the May general meeting.

    Our VP of Programs, Rick, treated us to a delightful speaker and we all learned a great deal about the octopus.

    I am happy to report 2 first-time guests attended the May general meeting.

    First Tom Di Vincent, guest of Barbara G. was introduced. Tom stated he has been diving since 1974 but has been out of the water for the last 10 years. He likes to hunt for lobster, sightsee and drift dive on walls.  Thank you Tom for your interest in our club.

    Gino Redfield joined us during the presentation and I was unable to introduce him to the group.  Gino, friend of Lureen F. was certified in 1990 and has had 1 dive.  I think we can change that!  Hope to see Gino at future meetings.

    The ZOOM meeting brought us "Sean" from Pennsylvania. Sean likes to dive anywhere and everywhere he can.  

    It is always a pleasure to introduce guests to the members.  Remember, guests are potential members.  Please continue to spread the word to your friends and tell them some fun facts about our club.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR 2023 

    Greetings From The Hospitality Hut,

    "The Hut" hopes you had a very happy holiday season and are ready to see what the New Year has waiting for us.

    I am happy to report two perspective guests to ring in the New Year. Let's try and get the word out about our dive club.

    If all goes well, and I know it will,  we can all look forward to a new beautiful venue for our monthly meetings.  Its' challenging to find a meeting room to satisfy everyone, so please do your best to support all the effort and work that goes into a very labor intensive task.
