Roy Cozart loves sailing. He loves SCUBA diving, too. Roy holds Advanced and Deep Diving certifications and has 103 dives. He came across the USA Dive Club while on the Internet.
Roy's most memorable dive was on the wreck of the M/V Castor, a popular hangout for goliath groupers. When asked what his dream dive would be, he responded, "The next one." A Caribbean Sea adventure is first on his bucket list.
Chris Burden, firefighter/paramedic for 20 years, RN for over 30 years, and a certified Divemaster since 1998, discovered the USA Dive Club while doing a web search for local dive clubs. Included in his 200+ dives is St. Croix, Virgin Islands. Here is where he had his most memorable dive: The Wall Shore Dive, Cane Bay. Chris saw eagle rays, sea turtles, and moray eels. In the future, he hopes his travels will include a liveaboard on the Great Barrier Reef.
Diving and traveling are only part of Chris’ interests. He enjoys free diving, kayaking, sailing, triathlons, archery, and hiking. Chris and Margaret, his wife of over 22 years, have three daughters and a female dog. He joined the USA Dive Club to meet like-minded people and would like to start diving much more.
Please give Roy and Chris warm USA welcomes when you see them on a dive, at a meeting, or any other USA event.
Have a happy and safe Halloween...and beware of ghosts, goblins, and haunted pumpkins.
