    Welcome to our new member Fran Hare. She has done some dives with the club as a guest and has done many dives at Blue Heron Bridge. She lives in Boynton Beach and we look forward to more people meeting her at the next in-person general meeting.

    Please welcome our new members Gary Goff and George Cathcart. Gary lives in Hillsboro Mile and was referred by a friend. George lives in Port St. Lucie and was referred by Marie York. This is the prime season for local diving so we hope they will join us so we can meet them.

    Happy 4th of July to everyone.

    I'd like to introduce our newest member, Will Schrier. He hails from Pittsburgh, PA but will be spending an extended time in West Palm Beach and was looking for people to dive with. He happened upon our website and the rest is history. He is not wasting any time in getting involved with the Club and has already signed up for the next two local dives. I, and I'm sure all those signed up, are looking forward to meeting and diving with him. I can't wait to have in person meetings again and meet the members that signed up during the pandemic.

    Hello Fellow Members:

    Interest in the dive club continues Inquiries are coming in from those that are going to be in the area for extended periods of time or are moving down here. Please keep spreading the word locally as well. Very much looking forward to seeing more members on club dives when they start up again.

    Happy Bubbling,

    I would like to introduce our newest member, Peter Bolton. He is a bit new to diving with about 10 logged dives. He was on Zoom for one of the past General Meetings and we hope to meet him when we can start up in person meetings. We have started a new membership committee of Julie Manhold, Alan Fuerman, Clare Anthon, and myself to review membership applications for a more efficient review. This will eliminate the month long wait for applicants to hear back after a board meeting.

    New inquiries keep coming in. Our website is getting notices and hopefully the flyers in the dive shops too.

    Hello fellow divers. I hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful weather we're having, albeit a bit chilly at times. I have been doing a little bit of local diving to support the charters but it is cool now, 72-74 degree water temperatures. It takes more than one layer of wetsuit this time of year. Visibility has been very good due to no rain and runoff. I see our flyers in Force-E Pompano and hope it generates interest for more members. I have had an inquiry or two during this non-gathering time.

    Happy Bubbling,
    Stephanie

    Hello Dive Club Members and Visitors,

    You may ask how can we run a club during a pandemic.  It takes volunteers who work behind the scenes to arrange for speakers on Zoom, process new membership applications electronically as well as collect dues electronically.  Speaking of dues......your dues will NOT be due January 1 for 2021 under the current circumstances but we are accepting donations to keep our basic services in operation. Please use Zelle to send donations to treasurer@usadiveclub.org. Thank you.

    While the club will not have sponsored dives during this time,  members are going diving together on local dive boats and getting together in small groups outside for other activities.  Stay in touch and stay safe.  

    Eunice & Stephanie

    Hello November Divers,

    We have made it through another hurricane season unscathed.  Wish I could say the same about the pandemic.  Hopefully you all have been safe and well.

    Fall is here and the winds are shifting. Several dives have been canceled due to sea conditions but the water temperature is still 81 and the lobsters are out there. We've had 4 new members since the pandemic started but looking forward to meeting in person again and meeting our new members face to face.

    I have seen a few underwater pictures of you diving at a grouper gathering and at the Blue Heron bridge.  Several of our members took off for a kayak trip that covered some of the Central Florida Springs & rivers.   Staying in touch with the club virtually and exploring the outdoors are safe and rewarding activities.  Keep wearing your masks and join us for our online meetings.  Best wishes, Eunice & Stephanie your volunteer membership coordinators.

    Happy October Divers!

    Thank you all who voted to update our bylaws making our club operations easier for all concerned.  Be sure to attend the October 1st General Meeting Virtually and you are welcome to attend the Board Meeting on October 8th.  

    We have been diving on a non-official club basis, just dive friends getting together on local dive boats which are only allowing half the occupants. Other members have put together a lengthy kayak trip in north central FL with other friends participating when they can for the next three weeks.  

    Don't forget that newly certified divers (in the past 12 months) can join our club for free!!  Our dues are $50 a year later.

    Remember you still need to wear your masks.  Stay well.

    Eunice & Stephanie, Membership Chairs
